California has a new electric car company that seems to be on the verge of launching their first vehicle. Faraday Future, based out of Hanford, California, announced their plans to launch the FF 91 in the first half of 2019. This will be an all-electric, autonomous-capable vehicle that should go head-to-head with the frontrunner in the marketplace, Tesla.
One of Tesla’s biggest accomplishments was their ability to provide an electric car with the right balance of range and performance. To that end, the FF 91 will have a few selections of electric motors and battery packs. Faraday Future says the base model will have a 534 kW, dual-motor setup that makes 716 horsepower. However, a 3-motor setup is also in the works with over 1,000 horsepower. Battery Packs range from 86.7 kWh, on the low end. 108.3 kWh and 130 kWh on the top end.
The higher performance models should, according to Faraday Future, rocket their way to 60 MPH in under 3 seconds, 2.39 to be exact. Plus, a claimed range of over 300 miles on a single charge. Range anxiety be gone!
There’s still plenty of gray area concerning the FF 91. However, we do know that the company’s flagship EV will start deliveries sometime in 2019. Faraday Future has not yet announced pricing. However, CEO Jia Yueting said it will cost “less than $300,000”.
More information should be available in September. However, until then, we want to know what you think of this up and coming electric brand. Drop us a comment down below and tell us how you feel about this new EV.
