Faraday Future’s First Car is Nothing Like its Concept


Faraday Future is making progress on its first production car.

After making a surprise debut earlier this year with an outrageous concept car, Faraday Future’s first production vehicle will be a lot more pedestrian and geared towards the everyday commuter. The company’s first production model will make its grand debut at next year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and now, Faraday Future has teased that car in a short video.

The car looks to be a crossover of sorts, as reports have suggested, and will be built on the Variable Product Architecture (VPA) platform that the FFZero 1 concept rides on that bowed at CES 2016. But the FFZero 1 wasn’t meant to preview a production model, but rather just how versatile the platform can be.

An agreement earlier this month with LG Chem revealed Faraday Future’s vehicles will use LG batteries, and with the company conducting on-track testing, expect the model to pack plenty of performance, at least enough to take on the likes of the Tesla Model X.

Funded by a Chinese billionaire who originally founded LeEco, Faraday Future is spending $1 billion on a manufacturing facility in Las Vegas and looks to be working quickly on bringing a car to market.
