Faraday Future Announces 381-Mile Driving Range

Faraday Future, a California-based EV startup, has been mired in controversy. However, the company is now poised to bring its FF 91 luxury SUV on the market. Customers may finally be able to get this long-awaited EV after a “production-intent model” was recently delivered from the assembly line. Faraday Future’s interior is impressive, with its 27-inch entertainment screen. This gives it another advantage to sell to investors and buyers.

The US Environmental Protection Agency has just given the FF 91 an official range rating, at 381 miles. Faraday Future’s initial estimates were lower. This is because the Tesla Model X’s most economical five-seat configuration, with its 20-inch Cyberstream wheels, can only travel 351 miles.

“Confirming our 381 mile range by the EPA was truly exciting news for FF. It validates what we already know about FF 91: The segment-leading FF 91 will become the first high-end and high-performance, luxurious, intelligent EV, and will reset customer expectation for both driver experience and vehicle performance,” stated Dr. Carsten Breitfeld.

“Our integrated propulsion system, which includes a lithium-ion pack battery pack, converts battery energy into power and efficiently recovers and reuses brake fuel to increase range and optimize vehicle performance. He said that FF’s segment-leading engineering has made a significant advancement in electric vehicle technology and provided a huge increase in EV range.

Faraday is quick and enthusiastic to point out the FF 91’s impressive range. However, this number is slightly lower when you consider that the 130-kWh battery pack used in the car is 30% larger than the one Tesla uses for the Model X. It sounds much more impressive than it is on the surface, with an additional 30 miles (8.5%) and 30 kWh. Faraday defends the FF 91 Futurist as it is more comparable to the Model X Plaid which can only travel 333 miles.

The vehicle comes equipped with three electric motors, which combine to produce 1,050 horsepower. They also generate 1,328 lbft of torque. This gives it a time of 2.39 seconds from 0-60 mph. Plaid is comparable at 2.5 seconds.

“Completing the certification by the United States Environmental Protection Agency was a significant step in getting the car into the hands of its users. I couldn’t have been prouder of my team. These outstanding results speak volumes about the quality of our design, product execution and we are thrilled,” Breitfeld said.

The company needs more cash funds to get the FF 91 into customers’ hands. We don’t know the exact price, but it is expected to be below $200,000 for top variants and about $120,000 for base models.
