First Drive / Ride Reviews In Faraday Future FF 91 – Videos

Faraday Future FF 91 Test Drive Time!

Faraday Future FF 91 Test Drive Time!

Following the grand reveal of the Faraday Future FF 91, a few media sites got up close and personal with the new electric car, but it seemed nobody was going to get a chance to ride in or sit behind the wheel of the FF 91.

Well, that changed late last night and into today as we’ve now come across a few videos (more may exist) of test drives/rides of the FF91.

The first video features The Drive’s Alex Roy. Video description:

“LIVE VIDEO #CES2017 of #FaradayFuture “Driverless Valet” Self-Driving Demo.”

Next up is again The Drive’s Alex Roy. This one is his actual live test drive. Video description:

“LIVE VIDEO TEST DRIVE from #CES2017 of #FaradayFuture#FF91

And one more from The Drive. The maximum acceleration blast. Video description:

“VIDEO: #FaradayFuture #FF91 Max Acceleration”

Lastly, here’s a high quality video from famed YouTuber Marques Brownlee. Video description:

    Well I am glad that Faraday Future actually have a proper car finally. Whether it makes it into production remains to see though. I just wish they would drop the constant references to Tesla, the car carries it’s own weight just fine it doesn’t need to be Tesla’s younger brother.

    It’s great to see more high performing EVs popping up, it cements the idea that EVs really is the way forward. Next is Lucid motors, let’s see what they can muster up. Things are really heating up now!

    1. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ sven says:

      It good to see FF is not solely focused on drag racing in straight lines, having incorporated rear-wheel steering and active torque vectoring for racing that actually requires turning the steering wheel.

  2. Vexar says:

    I have much higher hopes for Lucid Motors. Something to be said for the lessons of hubris. Again, great tech, compliments to the engineers at FF, good luck on your next job!

  3. Stimpy says:

    At the rumored $150k they’ll easily sell tens of copies!

    1. philip d says:

      And it will also probably be slower once they build the production model that has to pass crash tests by replacing the plastic doors, fiberglass roof and A pillars with something like high strength steel or aluminum.

      I may be wrong but it looks like they probably stripped these alphas of every ounce they could for the demo.

    2. JIMJFOX says:

      You mean like the ‘tens of copies’ of many production ICE hypercars??

      Koenigsegg Agera R
      Hennessey Venom GT
      Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
      9ff GT9-R
      SSC Ultimate Aero
      Koenigsegg CCR
      McLaren F1

      And many, many more- how many cost less than 150K?

  4. Trollnonymous says:


    What’s the use of all the specs better than Tesla if you can’t use it regularly. It’s like having the hottest wife but you can’t have sex with her.

    They’re better off making this into a midsize SUV.

    1. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ sven says:

      Are you making a thinly veiled reference to President Trump and First Lady Melania? LOL! 😉

    Am i the only one that noticed FF 91 in the MKBHD video is totally stripped interior? comparing this prototype with bare/stripped interior to a fully in production Model S P100D isnt apple to apples. I hope they succeed too but its not an even comparison. strip the interior in Model S P100D and it would probably do 0-60 in 2.2 or 2.3 seconds.

    1. no comment says:

      i don’t think that brownlee was in the show car, i believe he was recording from the two prototype cars.

    2. John says:

      No, just no. With that power it’s traction limited anyway.

    3. floydboy says:

      Looking around the net, many have noticed that the car appears to have been stripped for the purposes of ‘one upsmanship’. Likely in a bid to attract much needed capital.

      Once they add all the necessary safety and operational equipment, that 0-60 may come down quite a bit.

      1. no comment says:

        if future faraday intends to provision this car with a luxury interior, it is certainly going to weigh more than the stripped down prototype.

      “Am i the only one that noticed FF 91 in the MKBHD video is totally stripped interior? comparing this prototype with bare/stripped interior to a fully in production Model S P100D isnt apple to apples.”

      There was at least one other post here at InsideEVs that made the same point, but certainly this bears repeating.

      There’s a fine line between hype and outright deception, and Faraday Future appears to have no hesitation in stepping well past that line, repeatedly.

      I cannot join those who wish FF well. For any company which makes a common practice of outright deception in its advertising and business practices, I can only wish for them to go out of business as quickly as possible.

      1. Four Electrics says:

        It reminds me of the third Model 3 “dark”prototype, which was rolled out without a functioning powertrain.

      2. Neromanceres says:

        Meh, It’s clearly a test Mule. It was a cool demonstration. The show car did have a production interior.

  6. no comment says:

    marques brownlee is very diplomatic in his use of language to describe this car!

    1. floydboy says:

      Yes, a good way to retain access to further developments from the company, IF they survive.

      1. AlphaEdge says:

        It’s his character. He’s always respectful and polite. One of the reasons why I like his videos.

        1. no comment says:

          that’s my impression, that brownless is a generally tactful. on the other hand, when he did his review of the tesla p100d that he bought, he did not sound like a fanboy.

  7. ViperMav says:

    One thing’s for sure – Alex Roy is pretty much a total douche. Seems like he was just trying to put them in a bad spot with every comment. Other than that, the FF tech seems legit – now they just need to productionize it.

  8. Chris Dragon says:

    They would be wise to paint their cars in more standard colors. The jarring black and white in bizarre patterns has made both their FF1 and FF91 hard to look at.
