Faraday Future Presented The FFZERO1 Concept In January In Las Vegas

Never to be outdone by in-state production rivals Tesla Motors, Faraday Future has shortened its website address and overhauled the look of its landing page – now found at FF.com.

(Tesla Motors recently acquired the rights to Tesla.com in February)

The new site features a quasi-updated blog, some motivational phrasing, and of course some promotion of their Concept FFZERO1 (video of which below).

As for new content, or a hint, hidden clue or scraplet about the production EV for the masses that Faraday Future says its goal is to produce in “within the next two years” …there isn’t any. 

Still, that production deadline is in big bold print right at the top of the new digs, so that has to count for something right?

In the meantime, you can sign up today for the company’s newsletter, to be in the loop on all things “FF”.

    I think they are they are timing their release for when the Tesla credits run out.

    1. mo says:

      If FF will produce an EV within 2 years, wouldn’t they have a working concept by now? If they had anything close shouldn’t they be stoked to show a driveable prototype off to spur on huge amounts of interest? I think this is all BS until they at least have a driving prototype they can show off to the press.

  2. Clive says:

    Lets see the goods, not the hype.

  3. Anon says:

    They really wasted a lot of time working on that “concept” vehicle… 😛

    1. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

      …and yet still forgot to put in a motor, battery pack, power electronics, or drivetrain… 😀

    Does any manufacturer besides Tesla actually deliver an EV, that can be purchased and then driven for 2 hours straight along the highway at 60 mph+ in all road and climate conditions? No charging support to continue on driving at the other end of the 120+ mile drive? Chevy Bolt/No! Faraday(way into the) Future/No! There has not been an affordable $30-40K EV that has reached this lofty benchmark.
    Now a Chinese Billionaire is burning cash along side Elon Musk in Nevada trying to ride the coat tails of the success of the Roadster, Model S, Model X, and Model 3 reveal and crowd funding/deposit order lineup. Just deliver an EV and, maybe there will be a Future. Two years? 100’s of thousands of buyers and drivers are patiently waiting with 1K refundable deposits paid for for the Model 3. A $35-45K affordable EV with a useable minimum range of 120-140mi. with cold/hot weather, wind, and hilly terrain figured into that real world distance. Of course charging support at the other end is the real Lynchpin in upsetting the price discovery of oil and the stranglehold of the once powerful OPEC Cartel. This is starting to look like completion, even if it is literally years away.

  5. SparkFiatOwner-M3reserved says:

    @William – Tesla doesn’t have one either- Its 40k EV is 1.5+ years out under optimal conditions.

    Bolts are in preproduction already. As most cars never see 100+ miles away from their homes, the charging network along freeways is largely moot for vast non-touring vehicles.

    1. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

      The frequency with which you see gas stations beside very nearly every highway, all over the world, attests to just how many cars are being driven more than 100 miles away from home. If EVs are to replace gasmobiles, then someday we’ll need to see superfast charge stations along highways more-or-less as frequently as we see gas stations today.

      Now, we’ll need far fewer superfast charge stations than gas stations in cities, because people will be doing most of their everyday charging at slow charging hookups, in their garages, driveways, and parking lots, or using curbside charge points in residential areas without driveways.

      1. Jychevyvolt says:

        “The frequency with which you see gas stations beside very nearly every highway, all over the world, attests to just how many cars are being driven more than 100 miles away from home.”

        No, a gas car needs to fill up regardless.

    2. Speculawyer says:

      “As most cars never see 100+ miles away from their homes,”

      I’m sure most cars do see 100+ miles away from home. Now it doesn’t happen often but most cars are used to drive that far at times. Tesla makes it possible. Granted, you can’t refuel as fast as an ICE car but since it only happens rarely, it is not a big problem.

    3. William says:

      In the last 10K miles and 6 months driving in a 2013 Leaf, I would like to have double the additional range for another $6-7 K in cost. Not the weight penalty of an additional 660 lbs, however. Reducing weight and increasing aerodynamics with a true long range quick supercharging support network, is the formula for success for an under $40K successful 50+ KWH battery vehicle.
      The major ice automakers just can’t or won’t scale and bring the production numbers up to drop the price point to make it a mass market affordable vehicle. They won’t invest in an interstate quick charging network to support the idea of long range battery driving. They are too closely tied to the very lucrative and profitable service network that is parts, labor and, refueling.
      Not to mention the petroleum from offshore oil cartels and, their sovereign national security interests. The defense contractors who ordain this profitable proprietary financial network, keep the status quo from losing market share and changing the known EROI formats and formulas.

      1. HVACman says:

        I have found the argument that dealers don’t push EV’s because of the reduced service needs (and profits) is specious. New ICE cars hardly need to see a service bay before 100K miles. Just lube-oil-filter changes, which many get at Jiffy Lube, and maybe a brake job or two. The profit is older cars and warranty work. My Volt was in 3 times for warranty software update flashes. The dealer’s service center made good money from GM for that work.

        1. Dragon says:

          Whether it’s actual reduced service needs, fear of reduced service needs, fear of change, lack of knowledge, or whatever, it remains true that most dealers push ICE over EV to a large degree.

  6. SparkFiatOwner-M3reserved says:

    I can actually spend 100+ miles within the city doing weekend activities with the family and that’s what straddles our current EV cars with range anxiety. Tesla’s network doesn’t help us there either. DC charging stations in malls are nice and convenient and I see as future potential perks as EV cars increase; but the solution really is a 200+mile vehicle to resolve range anxiety.

    Bolt has that potential and meets the utility capabilities of a hatchback/CUV

  7. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

    “Coming in two years.” Yeah, that’s what Faraway Faraday Future said the first time InsideEVs had an article about them; before they showed that non-functional “batmobile” mockup instead of a real prototype car.

    InsideEVs’ Jay Cole has said that the normal time between clean sheet design for a brand new model, and start of production, is about four years. Now, I appreciate that FF may have been working on a prototype or test mule for an actual car (not that absurd “batmobile”) for some time. But still, for anyone who believes FF will actually have an actual car entering production in only two years… I have some ocean front property in Kansas to sell you.

    1. Speculawyer says:

      Well . . . the Model 3 is pretty far away as well.

    2. Rich says:

      The Chinese have a lot of experience building manufacturing facilities at a pace unseen in the western world.
      2 years sounds aggressive to me as well, but I’m not ready to ignore these statements. The entire manufacturing line could already be assembled, just waiting on a facility.
      If FF can deliver safe, reliable, desirable BEVs in an affordable price range, then I welcome their participation.

      1. HVACman says:

        Building a manufacturing plant is one thing. GM can get a new plant up and running from scratch in about 18 months. The design/build time cycle problem is what the facility BUILDS. Engineering a new clean-sheet car, from concept through validation through pre-production to governmental certifications (safety, environmental, etc.) and full production – for one of the world’s most complex-and-regulated machines, is HARD.

        FF is fantasizing.

      2. Dragon says:

        Part of why China can move so fast is they have fewer regulations to follow (or fewer that are actually followed) in terms of permits, worker safety, and whatever else. A worker dies on a skyscraper working in 24 hour shifts under spotlights and the work goes on. A car with safety problems explodes and there is no recall or lawsuit. FF might pull off a whole factory and a whole car in China in two years, but not in the US. Not to mention they’ve been saying the same two years for at least a year. They’ve already missed their deadline.

  8. Yoda says:

    If you spend 10,000 less on a 100 mile EV than a 200 plus mile EV you will than be able to see how far that 10,000 can get you in a rental car…

    1. SparkFiatOwner-M3reserved says:

      10,000? You’re assuming we’re actually buying these vehicles. The Fiat has a $500 per year rental enticement to boot on the lease.

      Prorate the 3 year lease on the Bolt Vs Spark, it’s not going to be a huge significant #.

      Remember, Tesla took 6 years from incorporation to delivery of their first flying pig.

  9. James says:

    Faraday also has a secret lab where they have developed flying pigs.

  10. Stretch2727 says:

    According to the website it will always be 2 years away……

    1. HVACman says:

      LOL! When my wife and I bought a “fixer-upper” house, a wise neighbor gave us some sage advice. “You’re two-years away from completing your remodel project. And you always will be.”

    2. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

      Reminds me of the movie “The Money Pit”, in which the hapless home owners would always ask the contractors how long it would be until they finished the remodel. “Two weeks!” the contractors would always say. At the beginning of the movie, they said it with a straight face. By the end, they would laugh uproariously after saying that.
