2017 Faraday Future FF 91 news, pictures, specifications, and information
Faraday Future is a California-based company that has partnered with Chinese EV startup LeEco and financed by Chinese billionaire Jia Yueting. Their first concept car was the FFZero1. It was shown in 2016 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). It is a high performance electric vehicle built upon FF's Variable Platform Architecture (VPA), a modular engineering system optimized for electric vehicles, on which all future FF production vehicles will be based.

The VPA will enable FF to minimize production costs, deliver exceptional quality and safety, dramatically increase its speed to market, and could easily support a range of vehicle types and sizes. FF applied the high performance FFZERO1 Concept to the VPA in order to maximize the platform's potential and showcase its flexibility.

The FF91 is claimed to be a production-ready vehicle that has a body style that is similar to a minivan and a crossover. It has 10 cameras around the car, 13 short and long range radars, 12 sensors, and a three-dimension LIDAR system that pops-up from the hood when the car is in fully-autonomous driving mode (when the technology becomes road legal and available).

The car has 1,050 horsepower, 378 miles of driving range, and 130 kWh high-density battery packs. There is an exterior lighting system which communicates with other drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians when in autonomous mode and replaces the side mirrors with high-definition cameras. The rearview mirror is also removed to eliminate blind spots.
