Faraday Future has released a new video on the aerodynamics of its all-electric model FF 91 that hopefully will move towards production in the not-too-far away future (one can dream).

Aerodynamics is one of the most important parts of EV design as it influences the most critical parameter - range.

In the case of FF 91, the target for drag coefficient was 0.26 - significantly less than 0.30 or more for an average passenger car.

Faraday Future states that theĀ 10% better aerodynamic efficiency translates into 5% more range at highway speeds. Because the battery pack is set to be 130 kWh, 5% equate to a 6.5 kWh savings.

Testing the FF 91: Aerodynamics

At highway speeds, a 10% reduction in aerodynamic drag gives you a 5% improvement in range. FF 91 was designed to maximize airflow around the vehicle and increase energy output and efficiency, all without sacrificing luxury.
