Faraday Future Continues To Promote FF 91 Despite Financial Turmoil

The financial state of Faraday Future has been dominating the headlines in recent months but the electric startup is continuing to promote its first proposed production vehicle, the FF 91 crossover.

In this most recent video, Faraday outlines how important aerodynamics were in designing the car, noting that a 10 per cent reduction in aerodynamic drag results in a 5 per cent improvement in range.

As such, Faraday Future used wind tunnels frequently during the development of the electric crossover, helping to create a vehicle that looks unlike anything else on the market and reportedly attracted over 64,000 reservations just days after the FF 91’s world premiere.

Faraday claims that its production-spec FF 91 will use a 130 kWh battery pack joined by four electric motors and producing a combined 1050 hp and 1800 Nm of torque, enough to accelerate the large crossover to 62 mph in a mere 2.39 seconds. An EPA-estimated range of 378 miles has also been touted by the manufacturer.

On paper, the specs of the FF 91 seem very promising. However, they remain nothing more than words on a page and will stay like that if the startup isn’t able to dramatically turn around its struggling finances.

    0-60 in 2.39 secs and a 378 mile range??? No wonder their struggling to get to market. Did someone say John Delorean?

  • Hate the man behind it and not the car, It’s like Fisker. I still love them despite that so many drama happened.

    • brn

      I hate to say it, but they’ve go so much fight in them that I kinda want them to succeed now. Just a little bit.

      Of course they won’t and that’s probably the way it should be.

    The scam continues.

  • See It to Fruition, Please

    Hopefully, Faraday does actually make it to market. So much better looking than the Tesla Model X.

      If not there is the Jaguar I Pace and Nio ES8 for starters. More will come down the road.

    Like any corporation on the brink, it’s business as usual until it’s not.

    • Yep maybe it will get sold and let other people continue it.

    This is just a Ponzi Scheme to investors and buyers. FF is desperate for those deposits.
