Beleaguered car startup Faraday Future has announced plans to introduce a compact electric SUV as its second model to the FF91.

This week, the company released an official sketch of the car. Placed against varying background shades of blue hues, with the car’s body lacking any detail, it continues the brand’s distinctive pattern of styling with ultra-aggressive curves, large wheel arches, and what appears to be one glass panel and no clear delineation between windshield, roof panel, and rear window.

No word has been revealed regarding specifications or timeline for production.

At a recent Global Supplier Summit conducted at its California headquarters with suppliers in attendance, Dag Reckhorn, senior vice president of marketing, also provided an update on the status of production for the FF91.

“Our Hanford factory project is developing according to our planned schedule. We are well into the process of design and permitting and have begun planning our recruitment cadence,” said Reckhorn. “We will move forward on construction and equipment by the end of the quarter. We remain on an aggressive, yet workable timeline of year-end delivery for FF91.”

The company also announced a recent $1.5-billion cash infusion from a Hong Kong-based company that has yet to be named, as reported by Business Insider, of which $550-million has been received so far. With the newly acquired funds, the company plans on constructing its first plant in Hanford, California, with work to start within the next 60 days. It is expected to open by Dec. 2018.
