Faraday Future production

The saga of Faraday Future and its flagship EV, now referred to as the FF91 Futurist, continues. The long-running, almost enigmatic startup has come out today and announced another fresh round of funding to keep the company going. Better yet, Faraday Future is targeting a start of FF91 production in March with deliveries to follow in April. However, a lot still needs to solidify financially before those EVs potentially… finally, roll off of the assembly line.

First ride in Faraday FF 91, pivots from Model X competitor to electric limo

Faraday Future FF91

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.

Faraday Future now flush with money pushes for FF91 production, does high-speed tests

We haven’t heard much from Faraday Future in 2018 as the troubled EV startup was trying to secure an important round of funding in order to get out of its seemingly constant financial troubles.

Now the company claims to be flush with cash after a $2 billion investment and they are getting ready to put the focus back on the FF91 all-electric crossover as they now test the vehicle at high-speed.

A look at Tesla Model X vs Faraday Future’s FF91

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.

Faraday Future sets new “production” EV record at Pike’s Peak, beating last year’s Tesla P90D by 20+ seconds

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.

Watch Faraday Future’s latest FF91 all-electric beta prototype launching full-speed up Pikes Peak

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.

Now Faraday Future is trying to position its new FF91 has a top performance all-electric car and it is currently at Pikes Peak to prove it.

Faraday Future shows a more badass-looking all-electric FF91 beta prototype

Faraday Future’s all-electric FF91 has been dubbed a classic electric “weird-mobile” by a lot of people. A term that might have originated from Tesla CEO Elon Musk referencing the way some automakers are designing EVs to specifically look “weird”.

I tend to agree based on the prototypes that FF unveiled in January, but we now get to see a matte black beta prototype, which definitely looks more badass than the silver and white prototypes with camouflage that Faraday showed before.
