A NEW SPECIES IS BORN WITH THE LAUNCH OF FF 91 


FARADAY FUTURE’S FIRST PRODUCTION VEHICLE WILL REFORMAT THE FUTURE OF MOBILITY 


LAS VEGAS, January 3, 2017 – Faraday Future (FF)  has revealed FF 91 (“nine one”), its first production vehicle, at an  exclusive event prior to the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Built  upon the company’s Variable Platform Architecture (VPA), 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. 


Starting now FF will start accepting reservations for FF 91  through the company’s newly redesigned website, FF.com. Reservations are  $5,000 and are fully refundable. The first 300 orders will have the  option to upgrade their reservation in March 2017 to join an exclusive  launch series, the Alliance Edition. 


THE NEW PERFORMANCE

FF’s proprietary VPA is a flexible  powertrain system featuring a monocoque vehicle structure in which the  chassis and body are a single form – providing measurable improvements  in overall vehicle rigidity, safety and handling. An available all-wheel  drive system offers greater traction, control and precise power  distribution. The VPA also houses class-leading battery technology,  multiple motor and battery configurations, as well as the company’s  first patent: the FF Echelon Inverter


FF 91’s powertrain features a multi-motor setup, enabling  real-time torque vectoring to the rear wheels. This technology delivers  superior acceleration, safety while leveraging rear-wheel steering for  agile cornering, allowing drivers to confidently execute maneuvers like  merging onto freeways or accelerating out of dangerous scenarios. Peak  motor power is 783 kW, equating to 1050 HP, delivering a record-breaking  0-60 mph time of 2.39 seconds. 


FF 91’s battery technology doesn’t sacrifice range for  performance. Outfitted with a 130  kWh battery, FF 91 achieves an  estimated range of 378 miles on the EPA cycle and over 700 km on the  NEDC cycle 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, with the ability to charge at more than 500 miles  per hour. The home charger, included with the vehicle, achieves 50  percent to full charge in under 4.5 hours at 240V. 


DESIGN WITHOUT BOUNDARIES, FIRST CLASS COMFORT

Exterior 

FF 91’s design philosophy is driven by aerodynamics. The sleek,  rounded front fascia and edgy, angular rear create a striking form that  improves aerodynamic efficiency to increase range. The signature UFO  line that runs around the mid-section of the vehicle provides FF 91 with  a unique but simple, stabilizing design element. Similarly, the wide  stance and long wheelbase deliver a spacious and luxurious interior  environment. 


FF 91’s gateway doors blend form and function by providing a  stylish entry system with easier accessibility. Each door can open  automatically and independently, allowing for quick and convenient  passenger pick up. Sensors prevent the doors from opening too wide and  making unwanted contact with the surrounding objects. 


FF 91’s exterior lighting is focused on communication. The  vehicle reimagines lighting systems by creating a deeper connection  between car and driver. When users approach FF 91, the vehicle’s rocker  panel illuminate with an owner confirmation sequence that brightens  based on proximity – FF 91 recognizes and welcomes you. 


The system uses intuitive patterns to communicate messages to its  users like welcome sequences and charging states, as well as autonomous  driving mode prompts. By design, the lighting system will improve  safety by informing pedestrians and other drivers when FF 91 is driving  autonomously. 


Interior 

Riding in FF 91, users will feel more rested and energized, even  after being stuck in traffic for hours. The rear seats deliver  industry-leading rear-seat reclining angles, putting passengers in the  biomechanically and ergonomically optimal position for comfort. This  first class rear seating experience provides lower leg, lumbar, and  upper back adjustments and support. The seats also offer massage,  heating, and ventilation for cooling. 


FF 91’s panoramic roof includes smart dimming glass technology.  The glass roof, rear and side windows all feature PDLC (Polymer  Dispersed Liquid Crystal) glass, which is operated by users tapping on  the glass, providing instant privacy and shade from the exterior  environment. 


NEXT-GENERATION CONNECTIVITY, SEAMLESS PERSONALIZATION

Through  its strategic partnership with LeEco, a global Internet company that  seamlessly blends devices, content, applications and distribution into a  first-of-its kind ecosystem, FF 91 offers the ultimate in-car  connectivity. FF EcoSystem integrates users’ digital lives into FF 91,  giving access to the apps and content, while learning user’s preferences  over time to create a smarter, more personalized experience. 


Creating a FFID account establishes a global profile that travels  with users through the FF EcoSystem and remembers personal preferences,  such as seating positions, favorite music and movies, ideal  temperatures, and driving style settings to ensure users have a  consistent experience across the FF EcoSystem powered by multiple in-car  modems.

 

FF is also introducing advanced facial recognition technology –  called Arrival Interface – allowing drivers and passengers to unlock the  car without a key. A camera installed in the B-pillar between front and  back seats can accurately identify the user’s face to grant vehicle  entry. Similarly, interior cameras use this technology to recognize  users and automatically adjust interior settings to their preferences.  FF 91 can not only recognize faces, but also facial expressions and  moods it uses to auto-prompt an experience to match, using music,  temperature, scent, content, massage and more. Users’ facial recognition  data is saved natively and securely in the vehicle. 


In addition to adjusting interior preferences via facial  recognition or mobile device connectivity, FF 91 is the first car where  you don’t need a key. The keyless welcoming system recognizes users as  they approach the vehicle, greets users by opening the door and  proactively adjusting to customized FFID settings inside. Similarly, the  FFCTRL app allows users to customize and control their in-vehicle  experience, get real time vehicle status reports, summon your vehicle,  and more. 


INTELLIGENT SAFETY

FF 91 will be the first production  vehicle to feature retractable 3D lidar, a critical component to FF’s  multi-layer redundancy features for autonomous driving. Lidar is part of  a complex sensor system including 10 high definition cameras, 13 long  and short range radars and 12 ultrasonic sensors. FF 91 possesses  significantly more sensors compared to other vehicles, and  industry-leading computing power to quickly extract data from all those  sensors and correct driving decisions. 


The standard rearview mirror has been replaced by a high  definition display that merges the live feed from the side mirrors and  rearview camera into a single, seamless image. The camera’s strategic  placement provides a much better vantage point of what’s surrounding the  vehicle, virtually eliminating blind spots. Combined with the views  from the exterior mirror cameras, the overall system improves safety by  creating a wider exterior field of vision from inside FF 91. 


The Driverless Valet parking feature enables FF 91 to park itself  after the driver has exited the vehicle. Powered by the FFCTRL app,  drivers can also summon the vehicle from its parking spot or schedule a  pick up at a desired time and location. Today, the system is capable of  parking FF 91 in private parking lots and roads. As legislation advances  to allow for public use of this technology, FF 91 will be able to park  itself anywhere users go. 


RESERVATIONS START NOW

FF will begin accepting  reservations for FF 91 through the company’s newly redesigned website,  FF.com. The first 300 customers will have the opportunity to upgrade to  an exclusive launch series, the Alliance Edition, in April 2017. A  portion of the proceeds for each Alliance Edition will be donated  towards an environmental fund which closely aligns with FF’s  sustainability efforts. Additionally, the opportunity to purchase the  very first unit of the FF 91 Alliance Edition will be auctioned at a  gala in March. All proceeds from the first Alliance Edition’s auction  will also be donated to the environmental fund. 


The production of FF 91 is planned to start in 2018.
