Faraday Future begins FF 91 production, the first e-SUV rolls off the line
Faraday Future, a Chinese-American automotive startup with a troubled past, has finally announced the production start of its long-anticipated FF 91 SUV. The first vehicle has already left the factory in California.
The FF 91 debuted six years ago as an electric concept car destined to dethrone the Tesla Model X. It has since undergone a massive transformation. The production vehicle is 5.25 meters (205 inches) long and packs 1,050 PS (1,036 hp / 772 kW). It needs only 2.27 seconds to get from standstill to 60 mph (96.6 km/h) and has up to 380 miles (613 km) of driving range per EPA.
The company currently places the FF 91 within the ultra-luxury segment of the market. There are only four seats inside with all manner of creature comforts in the back row and as many as 11 displays.
Faraday Future says the production launch will succeed in three stages with active participation of the brand fans. At the current stage, only the most diehard fans will receive their cars. Based on this ‘private club’ approach and some of the claims the company made earlier, we suspect that Jia Yueting – the founder of the company – had originally expected his EV to be way more popular than it ultimately turned out to be.
