Up Close Look At Faraday Future FF 91 – Videos

Faraday Future FF 91

Faraday Future FF 91

There are a myriad of videos hitting YouTube about the much-anticipated Faraday Future FF 91. It is the company’s production-intent vehicle that is supposed to be released in 2018, with specific intent to compete with Tesla.

The premier at CES in Las Vegas, which was live-streamed on InsideEVs, showed the car in action and compared its acceleration to several other vehicles. If you didn’t get to watch the premier, or don’t have the hour and a half available, the above video pretty much sums it up in seven minutes.

We should note that, like our media counterparts demonstrate in these videos, that it was impossible for us to get close enough (let alone inside) the FF91 to be able to photograph (or take a video of the inside of the car).  Security was seriously limiting access to the near proximity of the vehicle.

The car is touted to have “world-record setting” propulsion with its 130 kWh battery pack, which is the larger than any automotive battery pack currently in use in the industry. The FF 91 was shown to be able to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 2.39 seconds.

Faraday Future has received much negative press as of late, due to reported lack of finances, and work stoppage at its factory. There are many skeptics that believe that the company won’t be able to follow through and pull off production level vehicles.

But, let’s be optimistic … if Faraday pulls this off, it will be an incredible addition to the world of all-electric vehicles. Check out the videos and let us know your thoughts.

    Why does the Robocop SUX 6000 come to mind?

      Here’s a link so we know what you’re talking about.

      Wait ’til Trump rolls out “Ed 209”, to support his re-election.

      As far as the car, I see a 2.4 second “Venza”.

    The press couldn’t get close to the car?!
    Quite the opposite of Lucid! I’m thinking maybe fake or even no finished interiors. That would explain that curious gap in the rear seat in one photo with the doors open.

    1. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

      One poster claimed that the interior of one of the two cars was empty. But I wasn’t there, so dunno if that’s true or not.

    First you have to produce some before you can claim it as the fastest production car. At least that is my understanding. What you have here is a concept prototype. So drop the pretense, hoopla, and hyperbole, about how you are changing the auto industry when you are merely reinventing the wheel.

  4. Vexar says:

    Can’t call it the fastest production car in the world if it is never put into production. Great engineering, all around, other than the LIDAR unit. So… the NHTSA rated it for EPA mileage already? That would be news if true.

    I hope the engineers are proud of their work, this is great stuff to take to their next employer! I do hope it is expensive, though. 1000+ HP should not be accessible to the masses.

    1. floydboy says:

      Yeah, remains to be seen if that time holds up when they have an interior and all the requisite safety and comfort equipment installed.

    2. JeffD says:

      The price is rumored to be similar to the Bentley it dead raced against in the teaser video.

      1. JeffD says:

        Had raced not dead raced.

    With these dimensions, FF 91 it’s a CUV much bigger than Model-S or Model-X and comes under a very different league. I believe it will be priced somewhere around $150K given its speed and range. So this is an entirely different vehicle in a different class.
    Good that they made a lot more practical vehicle than the FFZero that they showed earlier Those who need this bigger luxury vehicle and can afford this price will go for it. After all the BMW i8 has so many customers for that price tag.

    Length: 206.7”/ 5250mm
    Width: 89.9″ / 2283mm
    Height 62.9” / 1598mm

    1. Stimpy says:

      No they won’t. BMW is a well established manufacturer with thousands of service centers worldwide.

      FF is starting from scratch and it’s anyone guess how reliable they will be.

  6. Avishay Setter says:

    What about the interior? I was much more impressed with the Lucid Air, it has a great design inside and out.
    Either way, I think we’re past the $100k toy for rich people now. Where’s the mass production EV’s?
