CES 2017: Faraday Future’s FF 91 Has 1,050 HP And Hits 60 MPH In 2.39 Seconds

A year after Faraday Future unveiled a crazy concept at CES, the electric startup has presented its first production vehicle in prototype spec at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, dubbed the FF 91.

Faraday Future says that the FF 91 is powered by a 130 kWh battery pack and uses four electric motors sending power to the ground. All up, it delivers 1,050 hp and 1,800 Nm of torque and is able to launch from a standstill to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 2.39 seconds. What’s more, it also has an EPA-estimated range of 378 miles.

According to the brand, the multi-motor setup of the FF 91 allows for real-time torque vectoring to the rear wheels to provide “agile cornering” and safety. The battery pack, co-developed with LG Chem, can be charged to 50 per cent with the included home charger in under 4.5 hours at 240 volts.

As expected, the FF 91 supports autonomous driving but the company has yet to announce just what level of autonomy it will achieve. It has been confirmed to feature 13 long and short range radars, 10 high definition cameras, 12 ultrasonic sensors and a 3D retractable lidar in the hood. This hardware will allow the FF 91 to park itself courtesy of the Driverless Valet, effectively FF’s answer to Tesla’s summon feature.

A lot of focus in the FF 91’s development has gone into its exterior design. FF says its design “driven by aerodynamics” and that it has a drag coefficient of 0.25, making it one of the market’s slipperiest production (almost) vehicles.

Much of the design has also been optimized around maximizing indoor space. Although no images have been provided of the yet-to-be-completed cabin, Faraday Future says it will offer class-leading interior space and include rear seats capable of reclining by up to 60 degrees, significantly more than the 43 degree angle achievable by current Mercedes-Maybach models.

Although the vehicle presented at CES isn’t the finished production car, reservations for the FF 91 have already been opened at the company’s website, requiring a $5,000 refundable deposit. The first 300 units produced will be the limited-run FF 91 Alliance Edition. A portion of the sale proceeds for each Alliance Edition will be donated to an environmental fund.

    What’s with the stupid graphics?

      Have you never seen a car with graphics before?

    The video looked cool, it all went down hill from there. I don’t know if these guys are gonna stay float.

    Dat Dodge Dart face….and I don’t mean that in a good way.

  • Braddo

    The build quality looks terrible?!!!

  • Kaisuke971

    I’m watching right now, the overall presentation was pretty weird, and then the car failed to park itself on stage (it worked in the parking though). I really hope this company will not sink, the production-spec car seems pretty cool but also not 100% ready… Hopefully it’ll be on point when it gets delivered.

    But goddamn are the Tesla fanboys annoying.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    I have to say, this lacks the sex appeal that Tesla (for the most part) has. It is cool, but I don’t know if I want to willingly drive a minivan.

    • Bash

      It has a longer wheel base comparing to even the LWB S-Class, that must have to somehow translate to a comfort ride and space. isn’t it?

      • Tumbi Mtika

        Well yeah. Like I said, it’s cool. I just don’t find it sexy.

  • Nordschleife

    This car looked so much better in silhouette.

  • pcurve

    avg g force of 1.15…

  • IFDU

    Eh..Lucid looks better

  • BlackDiamond


  • gary4205

    Complete vaporware.

  • WG

    I like the Lucid Air styling more than this.

  • Bash

    imo the design is better than tesla, but lucid is nicer!

  • nik

    I hope the company gets the financing it needs! It truly is a unique vehicle

  • TheBelltower

    Well huh… I kind of like it a lot.

    $5000 deposit on a total price of what exactly?

  • Honda NSX-R

    Cool,looks too minivanish though. I will say that this looks better than the Model X and 3, but not as good as the Lucid
    Air. Nice effort from Faraday Future.

  • donald seymour

    Meh, the hype was really for nothing.

    • I’mCallingYouOut

      Yeah it’s no Challenger, that’s for sure.

      • Tumbi Mtika

        I see what you did there…

  • Knotmyrealname

    Someone has been hitting the car with an ugly stick. Lucid is way better.

  • disqus_83g6mJmr6l

    design wise, the car looks thoroughly modern & cutting edge object.cool graphics & logo. seems like a concept car…i want shots of the interior.

  • J&G

    Very nice car , futuristic , fast , good range , but time will tell if they are going to succeed ! The logo of FF reminds me of :


  • salamOOn

    why every new electric company thinks they must have 1000hp? its useless and absurd.

    • Kaisuke971

      Remember that 30 years ago the fastest sedan in the world had 286hp, so absurd for now maybe, but in 30 years ? I don’t think so. Power is good for emergency situations, just like good brakes. As long as it’s usable (like here), it’s not too much imo.

  • Kagan

    Let us see if it comess out in day ligth!

  • MultiKdizzle

    Retractable LIDAR? Active wheels? Cameras for wing mirrors?

    If they pull this off, major props.

  • Mind Synthetic

    wow, this is truly terrible. where did they spend the money at again?

  • Vassilis

    Holy sh*t it’s ugly!

  • fabri99

    This looks like one of those ugly Italdesign concept cars.

  • Joe

    I think the product looks good. The features seem pretty cool, the key thing I think is stupid…what if another family memeber needs to drive the car? It’s unfortunate about the debut that it kind of went downhill that doesn’t look to good for them. It’s a cool product with cool features. People will buy it, I’d really love to see the cabin tho :/

  • Craig

    A drag coefficient of 0.25 isn’t really all that impressive considering the fact that the car you see below – the 2000 Lexus LS430 – was [and still is – I’m assuming!] 0.25. And that’s 17 years ago. And it should be noted that the 2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is 0.24. And so are both the ‘S’ and ‘C’ class Mercedes.


    • Kaisuke971

      The best for a Sedan right now is 0.22 (BMW 5 Series G30).

      • Craig

        I didn’t it was that low. That’s amazing!

  • Kash

    Let’s be honest, if the Model X’s funky, minivan/coupe/SUV styling can thrive then this will do fine. This looks like it might have a little more room even.

  • TheBelltower

    Just sat through the (somewhat awkward and buggy) video presentation. The car looks good, and the guys who developed it put their hearts into it. Fingers crossed that it works out for them! There needs to be other good EV’s besides Tesla.

  • Blanka Li

    Oh look: the Vector W2 is back. Wiegart would be proud.

  • AstonMartin

    Faraday Future has delivered on dynamic styling coupled with a feature set that intrigues me. I for one very much like the FF91 and truly hope the necessary funding is available for them to thrive from this point. I was impressed by the presentation and the team they’ve assembled. The more players in the EV scene will help the entire sector to thrive with better vehicles.

  • WG

    I see a little bit of the VW golf R design in the front. lol

  • Six Thousand Times

    OK, yeah…neat. But like the Lucid does it actually happen?

  • NoSnarkHere
  • Big Black Duck

    this is an excellent vehicle …but their presentation kind a sucks..they should not introduce the chinese partners right away…after enduring minutes of this guy trying to speak english from 1:13:28 to 1:18:15 i had to “FF” this to the end. Considering this is their debut..they should have had more attractive presenters….it would have actually helped!

  • KareKakk

    Should have been a DS8…
