Faraday Future Reveals First Pre-Production FF91

AUG 28 2018 BY MARK KANE 36

Faraday Future completed its first pre-production FF91

Faraday Future has built its first pre-production FF91 in Hanford, California, around a month after its first completed structural frame of the FF 91 was revealed (also referred to as Body in White).

It’s expected that after the run of pre-production cars, Faraday Future will begin production and deliveries of customer cars by the end of this year.

Company CEO YT Jia said:

“We’ve built our 1st pre-production #FF91 using thousands parts from top-tier suppliers from around the world. I firmly believe that the industry and users will reap the benefits of the “new species” we all worked so hard to create.”

According to the Green Car Reports, the team celebrated reaching the milestone:

“A company memo leaked to Green Car Reports reveals that Faraday plans a party to celebrate the milestone at its assembly plant in California’s Central Valley on Tuesday.”

““It is inspirational for us at FF to see all the parts come together for this significant day: the literal parts of the FF 91 from our various on-time supplier partners; the processes and tooling within the Hanford facility itself; and the invaluable training for the essential ‘soft’ skills required for this level of sophisticated teamwork I and others need in our Hanford production teams as we begin creation of our FF 91,” said Faraday Future’s senior vice president of manufacturing Dag Reckhorn.”

Panel gaps… haha! Just kidding…

(⌐■_■) Trollnonymous

ROTFLMAO

John

That’s funny, David!

Andy

I hope they iron it out for the final production model. Those gaps are creasing me up…

Twonius

This is what happens when you overcharge your Nissan Leaf.

William

Ouch, that Leafs me at a Loss for Words!

A “New Species” FF91.

Benz

“It’s expected that after the run of pre-production cars, Faraday Future will begin production and deliveries of customer cars by the end of this year.”

That would be the best case scenario.

In 2019 is probably a more likely scenario.

Illia Drobchak

As I remember, if they won’t be able to start deliveries in December, they director gets fired by Chinese investors.

So, I am expecting some deliveries with HUUUGE panel gaps)

But I wish them luck in any case

antrik

The Electrek article on the same event claims that they are now talking about deliveries only in H1 2019… Which is a surprise to absolutely no one.

MDEV

I hope they call their driving assistance something like “ look out” so the smartest people won’t have accidents.

Kosh

They’re going to need a LOT more strapping tape….

John

If Faraday actually makes it, I promise to everyone here that I will go hunt and find a crow, bake it into a pie, and eat said crow.

For the record, I hope I have to do so!

Seven Electrics

And if Lucid makes it, I promise… to sit for two hours in one of their rear massage seats. We each sacrifice in our own way, you know?

John

You and me both, Seven!

antrik

Is that legal where you live? Here in Germany, it’s not.

Bunny

It is going to be funny reading some of the comments here in the future if they actually start cranking these out and also at the high price point this is going to sell for.

Mark.ca

Is it just me or the one in the top photo resembles a Leaf2?

antrik

It just has a similar rear pillar. A lot of recent cars have this sort of design.

Will

200k for this car no good

Seven Electrics

If it becomes a status symbol in China, it might do OK.

antrik

Well, that variant is for the global market… The Chinese one was supposed to be made by LeEco — not sure whether that’s still on.

antrik

Why not? There seems to be room for luxury EVs above Tesla; and if this one is as luxurious as they claim, it might find a niche market there.

(Though frankly I don’t think it *looks* that price…)

James

How is this company still in business?????

Pushmi-Pullyu

I’m just as mystified as you are. Are there any investors who are actually that gullible?

Pushmi-Pullyu

“It’s expected that… Faraday Future will begin production and deliveries of customer cars by the end of this year.”

Huh, I will be absolutely flabbergasted if FF ever gets any car into production. I won’t promise to eat an actual crow pie if it does, as John did in his comment above, but I’ll certainly have to eat an enormous metaphorical one!

antrik

Eh, at this point I’m pretty confident they will. Question is more, how long will it *remain* in production? Thinking DeLorean here…

arne-nl

Kudos to the FF team for the perseverance!

David H

Godspeed to them!
The FF91 does look very futuristic and a conventional car maker would probably be laughed at and they won’t design it that way. But it begins to grow on my and it’s defenitely an eye catcher. I’m hoping for a lottery win and the e-tron, but I can see a market for the Faraday.

Great job, keep on the good work. (Lucid too)

Will

Love the design. Looks like an oversized station wagons

antrik

More like an oversized hatchback… Which is exactly what it is I think?

Pete

Looks like a Nissan Leaf from the back.

John

Junk! They expect this to sell for $150K? Fat chance!

ChrisHansen

Those panel gaps……

Miles

Have they completed the production tent yet?

ffbj

Hopefully 65% of the parts are from the U.S.
