Faraday Future says it started clearing up the site of its future $1 billion electric vehicle factory in North Las Vegas during the weekend. The startup needs to move quickly if it wants to deliver on its plans to bring to market its first vehicle in 2017.

Last month, we learn that Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval approved a $335 million incentive package in a deal to secure that Faraday Future will build its factory in the state, more specifically in North Las Vegas.

Under the incentive package, the state will offer “$215 million in tax credits and abatements, and publicly finance $120 million in infrastructure improvements at an underdeveloped industrial park in North Las Vegas”.

Now FF published two pictures of a few CATs moving some dirt to prepare the site for the manufacturing plant:

Earlier this month, Faraday unveiled its first concept, the FFZERO1, in order to showcase some of its technology and design, but in the process, it also might have revealed the shape its first car meant for production.
