Faraday Future reveals fastest-accelerating EV

Faraday Future has revealed FF 91, its first production vehicle, at an exclusive event prior to the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

FF 91 represents a bold new breed of electric mobility that combines supercar performance, precise handling, the comfort of an ultra-luxury passenger vehicle and a unique collection of intelligent internet features.

FF 91’s powertrain features a multi-motor set-up, enabling real-time torque vectoring to the rear wheels. This technology delivers superior acceleration and safety while leveraging rear-wheel steering for agile cornering. Peak motor power is 783kW, equating to 1050hp, delivering a 0-60mph time of 2.39 seconds.

FF 91’s battery technology doesn’t sacrifice range for performance. Outfitted with a 130kWh battery, FF 91 achieves a range of 378 miles (EPA est.) and over 700 km (NEDC est.) from the world’s highest energy density battery, engineered in partnership with LG Chem. Similarly, the system’s compact design enables more cabin space for greater comfort and safety. FF 91 also has the fastest charge speed currently available. The home charger, included with the vehicle, achieves 50 per cent to full charge in under 4.5 hours at 240V.
