Faraday Future Explains Why Its First Electric Car Is Called FF 91
When Faraday Future unveiled the FF 91, some wondered why the alphanumeric name?
Well, we finally have an explanation on the naming convention, via Faraday Future senior vice president of research and development, Nick Sampson.
According to Sampson, the naming is rather simple. FF stands for Faraday Future, as we all guessed. But the numbers tell a story.
Faraday Future will use the numbers 1 through 9 to indicate size and price, with 9 being at the top of the lineup. So, the 91 is the flagship vehicle in the automaker’s lineup. The 1 that follows the 9 indicates that it’s the first generation of the model. Therefore, it’s successor would be called the 92.
Future, cheaper Faraday vehicles will be the FF 81, FF 71 and so on.
The only break is this naming convention will be what Sampson calls a halo vehicle. This special vehicle will get a “0” or “Zero” as the model designation, like the radical FF Zero 1 concept Faraday first showed us awhile back.
