The electric crossover allegedly debuts at next year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV.
Faraday Future has released a new teaser video of its forthcoming electric crossover. The model is still heavily camouflaged, but a few gaps reveal the crimson paint underneath the concealment. The still-untitled model features a blunt nose and steeply raked rear. It looks ready for a fight against the Tesla Model X.
Faraday Future is keeping details scant about the crossover. It purportedly uses a 98-kilowatt-hour battery, which would put the vehicle in direct competition with the 100 kWh Tesla Model X P100D. The company claims the CUV could go at least 300 miles (482 kilometers) on a charge – just a little more than 289 miles (465 km) from the range-topping Model X.
While it’s still not officially confirmed, Faraday Future’s vehicle may have a sophisticated autonomous driving system. Over-the-air software updates would follow Tesla’s method of keeping the software on the cutting edge. The company received permission for testing the tech from California regulators earlier this year. Spy photos later showed the sensors on the road on a Lincoln MKZ test mule.
Faraday Future will reportedly reveal the electric crossover (and give it a name, we hope) in January at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Assembly will allegedly take place at a newly built factory in the state.
While Faraday Future hasn’t yet sold a vehicle, the company has built quite a leadership team. For example, the firm hired a former leader of the Apple Car program, and the business also recruited former Ferrari North America CEO Marco Mattiacci.
The automaker debuted its wild looking FFZero1 supercar concept at CES last year. The vehicle was never meant for production but grabbed headlined because of an output of over 1,000 horsepower (746 kW). A video during the model’s premiere offered an early tease of the crossover’s shape.
