Faraday Future reveals pre‑production FF91

Faraday Future has revealed the pre-production specification for its ultra-luxury FF91 EV remains on schedule for the FF 91 start of production in Q3 2022. The company will build more production-intent vehicles over the coming months for vehicle testing and validation, as well as final certification. Production-intent vehicles feature production-specification components.

The FF 91 rides on the Variable Platform Architecture and is slated to feature a 1,050PS-plus (772kW) via three motors and all-wheel-drive, with over 350 miles of range and fast charging capability. Faraday Future says the FF91’s battery near-on doubles the energy density of most production automotive batteries. The vehicle will be equipped with a tri-motor all-wheel drive system that features rear torque vectoring as well as a combined output of 1,050 hp (783 kW / 1,065 PS). This is slated to enable the FF 91 to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 2.39 seconds.

The FF 91 is slated to have up to 11 displays with a total viewing area of more than 100 inches. Other highlights will include NASA-inspired Zero Gravity seats, a “lightspeed” internet connection, and a generous 48.9 inches (1,242 mm) of rear seat legroom.

Matt Tall, vice president of manufacturing at FF, says: “Building the first production-intent vehicle at the Hanford plant is an important step towards reaching the start of production in Q3. This iteration is the closest to the FF 91 production model we’ve seen to-date. The FF 91 is expected to be the first ultra-luxury EV to reach the market, with a unique driver and passenger experience.”

While it’s still not ready to deliver FF91 crossovers to customers just yet, Faraday is planning production of a second model called the FF81. The company announced a deal with South Korean auto parts supplier Myoung Shin to build the FF81 at the latter’s former General Motors factory in Gunsan, South Korea, beginning in 2024.
