Faraday Future Debuts The FF 91: 378 Miles Range, 0-60 MPH In 2.39 Seconds

Live from Las Vegas ahead of the 2017 CES show [Jan 5-8,2017], Faraday Future has taken the wraps off its first production-intent vehicle – the FF 91.

Right from the word ‘go’, Faraday’s Peter Savagian touted the FF 91’s performance saying that:

“We have developed the world’s greatest electric propulsion system.”

Total power of the FF 91 is reported at 783 kW/1,050 hp, and 0-60 mph in 2.39 seconds, making it faster than its most obvious competition, the Tesla Model X, and by a decent margin.

Faraday even brought both the Model X and Model S (P100DLs) and FF 91 on stage to show off its EV’s abilities in comparison (see video), calling the Tesla EV’s abilities “commendable”.

As for the battery capacity, Faraday says it has both the high energy density cell and largest in the business at 130 kWh (which reminds of sister-car company Lucid Air’s optional 130 kW pack).

Total range? In excess of 378 miles on the EPA adjusted scale, or 700 km on the optimistic NEDC rating system.

Faraday notes that a constant speed of 55 mph, the FF 91 will travel 482 miles.

L2 charging is offered on the car up to 15 kW, while the FF 91 can charge on DC fast charge at up to 200 kW.

Faraday classes the FF1 something between a mid to full size vehicle thanks to a large wheelbase, and 150+ cu feet of interior space.
