At CES 2017 today, Faraday Future made the announcement that they have been promising for some time now, unveiling the new Faraday Future FF 91, which is an electric vehicle that is designed to take on the Tesla Model S.
The FF 91 will come with a 783 kW electric motor, which is the equivalent of 1,050 horsepower and provides it will the ability to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.39 seconds.
The car will also feature a 130 kWh battery, providing it with a range of around 378 miles.
Users can charge that battery from 50 percent to full in around 4.5 hours.
Faraday Future explained more about the new electric car with the following:
Faraday Future (FF) has revealed FF 91 (“nine one”), its first production vehicle, at an exclusive event prior to the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Built upon the company’s Variable Platform Architecture (VPA), FF 91 represents a bold new breed of electric mobility that combines supercar performance, precise handling, the comfort of an ultra-luxury passenger vehicle, and a unique collection of intelligent internet features.
FF’s proprietary VPA is a flexible powertrain system featuring a monocoque vehicle structure in which the chassis and body are a single form – providing measurable improvements in overall vehicle rigidity, safety and handling. An available all-wheel drive system offers greater traction, control and precise power distribution. The VPA also houses class-leading battery technology, multiple motor and battery configurations, as well as the company’s first patent: the FF Echelon Inverter.
Faraday Future are now taking a $5,000 reservation fee to pre-order the car, but it won’t be going into full production until 2018.
