PostHeaderIcon Faraday Future Gets GoFundMe Campaign to Keep Employees, But Diagnosis Looks Terminal

The state of Faraday Future has officially turned depressing. It’s bad enough that the company has fallen on hard times and is desperate to raise more money to keep operations afloat, it’s another level of misery when its employees resort to setting a fund-raising campaign on Go Fund Me just to keep their own families afloat. The $50,000 campaign was started by Hector Padilla and Asim Sher, both of whom work for Faraday Future. At the moment, the page has raised over $17,000 since it launched on November 1, 2018. The goal, according to the campaign, is to “help all of those Manufacturing Team members that are in need of financial support because of lay off or mandatory furlough.”

PostHeaderIcon It’s Time To Say Goodbye to Faraday Future

Nick Sampson, one of the three co-founders of Faraday Future, has quit the company. Sampson’s departure comes a day after Peter Savagian, the company’s senior vice president of technology and product development, made his own beeline for the exits. If these departures aren’t bad enough, Faraday CEO Jia Yueting announced the anyone who started working for the company after May 1 would be placed on unpaid furlough. According to a report from CNBC, the furloughs begin in November, becoming the latest in a series of layoffs and salary cuts that have happened in recent months.

PostHeaderIcon Faraday Future Completes a Pre-Production Build of the FF91…Finally

After a rough couple of years, Faraday Future appears to have finally completed its first pre-production FF91. Thanks to the recent cash inflow, Faraday has made some progress with the electric vehicle. The car has been assembled at the company’s factory in Hanford, California. Faraday plans to start delivering production models of the FF91 in the first half of 2019. The company celebrated the milestone by sharing a picture of the build, where we also get a slight sneak-peak of the factory.

PostHeaderIcon Faraday Future Teases a New Model, the FF81, at a Supplier Meeting in California

Faraday Future took a bold step last week when it reportedly gave a preview of its second model, called the FF81. The reveal occurred at a supplier’s meeting the company hosted in its California headquarters. Not much is known about the car, but it is expected to be a smaller SUV compared to the FF91. The concept is being lined up to make its debut this year, and signs point to it taking place at the 2018 Beijing Motor Show in China this April.

You have to give credit where it’s due. Despite being engulfed in one issue after another, Faraday Future is pushing on with its business endeavors. At the very least, the supplier meeting that reportedly included over 100 suppliers, including Bosch, LG Chem, and Ricardo, is a positive sign that the company is still working to achieve its goals, outside noise notwithstanding. According to reports, the meeting also included discussions about the production timetable of the FF91, as well as talks about the company’s global strategy and future production plans.

If there’s one startup automaker that’s had the wildest roller coaster ride since its launch, it has to be Faraday Future. We’ve already documented the many ups and downs the company has been on in recent years, but it appears that it again has solid financial footing after receiving a series of investments in recent months, including a $1.5 billion investment from an investor based in Hong Kong.

“For now, the main concern is to kickstart production of the FF91, which the company is working on with the refurbishing of its facility in California.”

It remains to be seen if Faraday Future can get back on course with its production timetable. For now, the main concern is to kickstart production of the FF91, which the company is working on with the refurbishing of its facility in California.

It’s great news if Faraday really is out of the rut it’s been in the last year or so. The automaker made headlines last year when it unveiled the FF91 at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show. It’s been tough sledding since then, but with these new investments and new product plans, brighter days may be on the horizon for the company. Let’s all hope Faraday sees the sunrise before another thunderstorm develops.

PostHeaderIcon Faraday Future FFZERO1 Unveiled at CES

Faraday Future FFZERO1-0

The 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is the ideal place for the debut of an all-electric super car which is challenging the crown of all the big boys in the gasoline league. This is Faraday Future FFZERO1 concept, and it’s an electric race car claiming some seriously big numbers.

Now, we have seen concepts like this, created by visionary but often overly ambitious startups, coming and going before without offering something of practical substance. But that doesn’t seem to be the case with Faraday Future FFZERO1. For starters, it is created by a team of eccentric looking pioneers which is always a good sing. What’s more, the idea is so crazy, it might just work.

Faraday Future FFZERO1-2
Faraday Future FFZERO1-3

The powertrain in Faraday Future FFZERO1 is a quad-core electric system which means it has one electric motor per wheel with a total output of over 1,000 horsepower. That power has to carry a lightweight and extremely aerodynamic body made from carbon fiber and composites, shielding an interior that features stuff like smart-phone integrated steering wheel, augmented reality, and NASA-inspired zero-gravity driver’s seat for optimum comfort and reduced fatigue during a race. The car claims a 0-60 time of 3 seconds and a top speed of over 200 mph.

Faraday Future is planning to build a mega factory in Las Vegas and then get busy producing electric vehicles based on the technologies used in the FFZERO1.

Faraday Future FFZERO1 highlights:

Powertrain

    4 Quad Core Motors with over 1,000 horsepower

    0-60 in less than 3 seconds

    Top speed: +200MPH

Interior

    Single seat occupancy surrounded by newly developed high-performance materials

    A fully-connected car featuring intuitive UI for integration between virtual and head-up displays

    Smartphone-connected remote vehicle setup and anticipatory personalization; capable of live analysis of vehicle systems

Exterior

    Innovative carbon fiber and lightweight composite construction

    Advanced high performance racing suspension

    Advanced vehicle dynamic control and torque vectoring

    Radically reduced drag and battery cooling through aero tunnel design
