Faraday Future has revealed plans to build a state-of-the-art production facility in North Las Vegas, Nevada.

Faraday Future has revealed plans to build a state-of-the-art production facility in North Las Vegas, Nevada.

Roughly a seven hour drive from Tesla's GigaFactory, the location was selected because the area has an enthusiastic workforce, an encouraging tax environment, and is in close proximity to the company's headquarters in California.  Faraday Future also notes being located near Las Vegas will enable the company to provide plant tours and other "engaging experiences" to the countless throngs of people who visit the city annually.

The plan calls for Faraday Future to invest $1 billion to build a modern production plant that covers 900 acres and features a three million square foot workshop.  The plant will be located in the APEX industrial park and Faraday Future expects the plant will create 4,500 new jobs.

While Faraday Future wants to begin construction as soon as possible, the company is waiting on the Nevada Legislature to evaluate the specifics of the project and approve tax abatements.  A special session has been called to convene on December 16th and if the Legislature favors Faraday's requests the company will begin planning construction.

Faraday Future is still a bit of a mystery but the company intends to "redefine the automotive experience by delivering a range of intelligent, electric vehicles and unique ownership arrangements that will fit the needs of tomorrow’s population."  That's not much to go on but we should learn more when the company introduces a concept at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.
