One of the newest automakers on the scene, Faraday Future, says that is has 64,124 reservations for its new all-electric FF 91 SUV.

All of those reservations rolled in within 36 hours of the FF 91 being revealed, but there is a catch. Faraday didn’t break down how many of those were priority reservations, which require a refundable $5,000 payment, versus how many are the free standard reservation. After running into money troubles, the brand could certainly use a nice influx of cash.

Faraday Future halted development of its massive plant in Nevada in Novermber, 2016 after the company missed multiple payments to its contractor. At the time, Faraday said it was focusing its efforts on the unveiling of the FF 91 at CES, saying that construction would restart sometime in 2017, though it seems the company will have to come up with some money to do so.

If all of those reservations are paid, than the company stands to make over $320 million, but that doesn’t seem likely, as it is easier to sign up for free to just stay updated on the FF 91’s progress. It is clear at least that Faraday has piqued people’s interest.

The FF 91 claims to be able to hit 60 mph in 2.39 seconds while also being capable of driving 378 miles on a single charge.

Pricing for the FF 91 hasn’t been announced, while production is said to begin in 2018.
