It looks like Byton isn’t the only company getting closer to launching an electric crossover as Faraday Future has unveiled the first pre-production FF 91.
Faraday Future is billing the crossover as an “intelligent robotic vehicle” that is a “3rd internet living space.” Marketing hyperbole aside, the model closely echoes the concept as the only major styling changes are the addition of chrome trim, a third brake light and more conventional side mirrors. This means some of the concept’s more unique features – such as the rear quarter fins and illuminated Faraday Future emblem – will apparently carryover to production.
Speaking of the production model, deliveries are slated to begin in the first half of 2019 and Faraday Future says the FF 91 should be able to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in less than three seconds. Drivers can also expect to travel more than 300 miles (482 km) on a single charge.
Faraday Future says additional information will be released in September, but a VIN decoder document has suggested the crossover will be offered in an assortment of different configurations. The base model is slated to have two electric motors and a combined output of 716 hp (534 kW / 726 PS). Likewise, the range-topping variant could have three electric motors and an output of 1074 hp (801 kW / 1089 PS). Buyers will also be able to select between a handful of different battery packs which are expected to have capacities of approximately 86.7 kWh, 108.3 kWh and 130 kWh.
