Faraday Future has been building up to this moment since it was founded back in 2014. The California-based electric vehicle startup has officially announced its first production vehicle dubbed the FF 91.
Backed financially by Chinese company LeEco, Faraday Future showed off its first concept vehicle, the FFZERO1, at last year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. It chose this month’s 2017 CES as the place to reveal the FF 91.
The FF 91 is nothing short of impressive. In fact, it is set to blow Tesla, and even supercar brands like Ferrari, out of the water.
The FF 91 boasts a gigantic 130kW battery pack that juices out a jaw-dropping 1,050 horsepower and has a driving range of 378 miles. All of this power sends the FF 91 from stop to 60 mph in 2.39 seconds, much faster than any current Tesla model and the majority of supercars on the market.
The Faraday Future crossover model is also incredibly connected. It is a moving hot spot thanks to dual antenna WiFi, so the FF 91 links to all mobile devices and can stream an impressive amount of information to its built-in HD screens.
On top of speed and connectivity in a way never seen before, the FF 91 is also fully loaded with autonomous systems. The Dynamic Sensor system comes with 10 cameras, 12 ultrasonic sensors, 13 radar sensors, and a 3D LiDAR sensor working in tandem to drive and even park the car without the need of a driver.
Faraday Future is scheduled to deliver the first examples of the FF 91 in 2018, and interested potential owners can visit Faraday Future’s website (simply www.ff.com) to create a unique FFID and reserve their own with a refundable $5,000 deposit. No price has officially been announced for the FF 91, but it is expected to be priced somewhere in the $150,000 to $200,000 range.
