Electrek took our first ride in the Faraday Future FF 91 in Las Vegas yesterday. A Faraday test driver floored the 1,050-horsepower, limo-like sedan — and we held on for dear life while reclining in luxury. It was a rocket blast.
The handling was adept, thanks to the three-motor system, with torque-vectoring applied to rear wheels. The brief ride followed our exclusive interview with CEO Carsten Breitfeld about how Faraday will, finally, at last, bring a vehicle to market.

Despite its financial troubles, which recently led them to abandon their EV factory project in Nevada, Faraday Future has remained surprisingly good at attracting high-profile talent, like hiring former BMW/Deutsche Bank CFO Stefan Krause.
Today, the electric car start-up announced that they managed to poach BMW’s head of EVs, Ulrich Kranz, as their new Chief Technology Officer (CTO). expand full story
Faraday Future FF91 Stories July 6, 2017
When Faraday Future first unveiled the all-electric FF91, it was believed to be a competitor to the Tesla Model S. They even put it against Tesla’s performance sedan in drag races.
But due to its size, the all-electric vehicle could actually be closer to Tesla’s Model X. A rare look at the two vehicles side-by-side gives us a new point of comparison. expand full story

Everywhere you look, EV records keep improving. Our newest example is Faraday Future’s FF 91, which took on the Pike’s Peak International Hill Climb this weekend and shattered the previous record for a “production” EV, set last year by a stripped but otherwise mostly unmodified Tesla P90D. The FF 91 beat the Tesla’s time by over 20 seconds, setting a time of 11:25.083.

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb has somewhat become a proving ground for electric vehicles over the years. A Tesla Model S set a new record for a production electric vehicle, Rimac also did an impressive job with its all-electric 1.1 MW monster racecar, and several all-electric bikes also made good impressions.
