In last year same time, January 2016, Faraday Future announced FFZERO 1, super electric car at CES 2016. It was their very first official appearance. Until then, the company was operating in stealth mode until 2016 in California. Since then, Faraday Future (FF) has come a long way. Founded in May 2014 by a handful of industry pioneers, FF quickly gained momentum as a newcomer in the industry. Based in Los Angeles, FF has since opened two new offices in the U.S. in Silicon Valley and North Las Vegas. Currently, the company is building a State-of-the-Art Manufacturing Facility (3 million square foot, 900-acre) worth $1 billion in North Las Vegas, Nevada. Today, they unveiled “FF 91” which will be available in the market in 2018. The car is planned to be built in Nevada plant.
The car has following key features & specification:
We have to until 2018 before consumers can actually drive themselves. One thing for sure that the launch of FF 91 at CES 2017 today, definitely delivers the promise of Faraday Future. One thing is certain that the automotive industry is currently going through the biggest change in last 100 years. In fact, the automotive industry will change more in coming 5 to 10 years than it has in the last 50. A competition between players such as Faraday Future, NextEV, Lucid Motors, Tesla, BMW, Rimac, Porsche and others will definitely give more sustainable, capable and more exciting cars than ever before.
Well, we don’t need to wait that long to answer that question, as a new automotive company named Faraday Future, just announced FFZERO 1, super electric car at CES 2016.

One of the coolest feature is, variable platform architecture, in other words modular basis of its design, which can be a complete game changer in the automotive industry.
Experts are saying this company is going to disrupt the automotive industry. One thing is for sure, once the car will be out in the market it will definitely give high competition to Tesla Motors.
Tesla was the No # 1 Electric Vehicle brand in the USA in 2015. The company introduced Model X and with newer version of Tesla S, total delivery of vehicles was 50,580 in 2015. Also, when it comes to technology and features in a car, Tesla was undoubtedly leading the EV market. Until, Faraday Future showed the FFZERO 1 concept car.
Best way to compare this two company is to compare their latest car models specification and features. So, I took the liberty to carry out some comparative research between Tesla S P85D Model and FFZERO 1 model and the result speaks for itself:
When it comes to horsepower, FFZERO 1 have massive 1000 horsepower with 4 quad core motors. Also when it comes to acceleration, both the model are neck to neck. Also, FFZERO1 claims to be 45 mph ( 72 km/h ) faster than Tesla S P85D. Within thrashing 200 mph ( 321 km/h ), it’s no doubt it’s more powerful than Tesla S P85D Model.
When it comes to battery, it’s yet to disclosed about FFZERO 1’s battery range. Till date, Tesla cars are unbeatable, considering range of the battery. It would be definitely a challenge for Faraday Future to match, even to overcome battery feature.
While designing this new super electric car, Faraday Future took the liberty to integrate some of the latest features that technology has to offer.
Here’s the key features of the FFZERO1:
We need to a bit longer to experience these features. For now, all we know that Faraday Future, collaborating with various companies such as LeTV in China to implement up-to-date features in the car. This company have promised to deliver the best quality EV. With 550 employees on board + renowned automotive industry experts, we can definitely expect a key competitor to Tesla. As Tesla is not present in CES 2016, we need to wait a bit more to see Elon Musk’s reaction on FFZERO1’s high ambition.
No matter who wins this competition, one thing is for sure customers are going to experience some innovative features that today’s technology has to offer.
