At last year’s CES, a new automotive company called Faraday Future teased an electric supercar concept. Now fast forward to this year, they’re back at it again with the FF 91, which is a production-ready car.
The FF 91 has an all-wheel-drive system, 1,050 horsepower and a reported range of 378 miles thanks to the 130kWh battery pack. It can also go 0 to 60 in just 2.39 seconds. Moving inside, the FF 91 is filled with displays, cameras, and seats that will recline. There is also a LIDAR sensor that will pop up when the car is in autonomous mode.
Also packed inside are multiple modems for non-stop broadband and two WiFi hotspots. Each person in the car would have a unique FFID, in which it would know what exactly that person would want to watch or listen to when they enter the vehicle.
The FF 91 can also find a parking lot spot by itself once you step out of the vehicle, which is a pretty neat feature.
Faraday Future has been in troubled positions recently, as there have been reports of the company needing additional financial support, and a couple of high-level executives have been jumping ship to other companies. However, at the launch event Senior VP of Engineering, and R&D Nick Samson said that “We’re not stopping with automotive. We’re a technology company reformatting the future of mobility.”
They also showed a video of their upcoming Production Facility, which will be located in Arizona. The FF 91 is set to go into production in 2018, and Faraday Future also went on to say that thanks to the Variable Platform Architecture, they can build any vehicle size by extending or shortening the battery pack and center frame.
There are no details on pricing or trim levels that will be available. However, interested buyers can place a refundable $5,000 down deposit on the vehicle right now, if they so choose.
