New Tesla-killing electric carmaker Faraday Future is beginning production of a self-driving luxury vehicle with a 381-mile range
NEW electric vehicle maker Faraday Future has begun production of its long-awaited FF91 model – a process originally slated to begin in late 2022.
The startup auto company claimed that its upcoming FF91 SUV has longer range and better acceleration than rivals like Tesla’s Model X.
Faraday Future’s delayed production is due to the restructuring of its board after a dispute with its largest shareholder, Reuters reports.
Faraday Future employees also raised concerns about their ability to continue as a company and deliver the FF91 on time following the shareholders’ disagreement over corporate governance.
Faraday Future will manufacture the FF91 at its Hanford, California factory, Electrek reports.
Some drivers are afraid to switch to an electric vehicle as they feel their car’s battery could be dead and leave them stranded.
But the FF91 is bent on eliminating range anxiety with its battery, which delivers a maximum charge of 381 miles.
Tesla’s Model X, by comparison, has a range of 348 miles.
The average American driver will be driving just over 30 miles a day by 2022, reports The Zebra.
Faraday Future’s FF91 also has 1,050 horsepower, while Tesla’s Model X maxes out at 1,020 horsepower.
Tesla is a leader in developing autonomous (driverless) technology in its vehicles. Still, the FF91 is ready for self-driving, allowing new technologies to be incorporated into the SUV at launch.
The interior of the FF91 further differentiates itself from its Model X competitor with neutral-posture rear seats for ideal weight distribution that provides greater driving comfort.
Deliveries of FF91 will begin in late April 2023, according to Reuters.
