Tesla… what’s a Tesla? Seems like Faraday Future wants in on the pure electric vehicle market and is getting ready for a turf war with Tesla. Faraday Future is an American technology start-up firm founded in 2014 and headquartered in Los Angeles, CA.
Tech nerd and YouTube tech Lord, MKBHD, got a preview of Faraday Future’s development model, the FF91, the 2017 CES Show.
The irony is that Faraday Future’s company named is directly influenced by the English scientist Michael Faraday who developed the law of induction way back in 1832.
The law of induction is a basic law of electromagnetism predicting how a magnetic field will interact with an electric circuit.
This in turn produces an electromotive force (EMF)—a phenomenon called electromagnetic induction.(sic)
Electromagnetic induction is at the very heart of Faraday Future’s propulsion philosophy and the FF91 EV will be the first such vehicle to offer this technology reinvented for the 21st century.
The FF91 has a rated power output of 1,000bhp and can catapult from 0-62mph in 2.6 seconds, faster than pretty much any supercar or hypercar currently available.
Will Faraday Future go by the way of Karma or will it end up like Tesla? The company is said to be financially sound and recently received a $215 million dollar tax incentive from the Government.
With a planned production facility in North Las Vegas Faraday Future could develop upto 4,500 jobs. The first product is expected to launched this year, that’s 2017 folks.
