Just a year later after introducing the Faraday Future FFZero1 concept, the company has been teasing another production model “Faraday Future Ff 91” for a while now and it’s supposed to be groundbreaking in the electric automobile segment. We no longer have to wait now since they just released everything 4 hours ago during the CES2017.
It seems that the company has cut no corners with its new technology and spec sheets. The Faraday Future Ff 91 gets a 130 kWh battery pack which powers four electric motors – this means it can produce 1,050-hp and 1,800 NM of torque which propel the SUV from 0-60 mph in 2.39 seconds. Stuff of dreams in the petrol world if you’re asking.
If you’re not familiar with current hypercars and 0-60 times, the FF 91 is as fast as any hypercar out there and it’s the fastest production EV in the world. It’s even faster than an F1, if you watch the video below you can see a live explanation during the 58 minute mark.
It’s clear that electric cars are the future and with an EPA-estimated range of 378 – the Faraday Future Ff 91 becomes an even more attractive argument against the petrol engine.
The new multi-motor setup in the FF 91 is great because it can allow real-time torque vectoring to the rear wheels for agile handling and a safer drive. The battery was co-developed with LG Chem and can be charged up to 50 percent in under 4.5 hours using a 240 volts home charger.
During the live feed, Faraday displayed some of the FF 91’s autonomous capabilities but did not mention what level of autonomy it can provide for the driver. The Faraday Future Ff 91 also receives 10 HD cameras, 13 short & long distance range radars, a 3D retractable lidar in the hood and 12 ultrasonic sensors.
The company also says that they worked extensively on the exterior of the car to provide superior aerodynamics that see the FF 91 at a drag coefficient of just 0.25 – making it one of the most aerodynamic production vehicles to ever be made. The interior design was focused around maximising indoor space, and according to Faraday it should be class-leading interior space with 60-degrees reclining rear seats.
Want to buy one? The Faraday Future Ff 91 is available for pre-booking with a $5,000 refundable deposit through the company’s website. The first 300 units will be a bit special, dubbed the limited-edition FF 91 Alliance Edition and a portion of the sales will be donated to an environmental fund.
