FARADAY FU­TURE FF91 Pro­duc­tion start­ing in 2018

Faraday Fu­ture has fi­nally un­veiled some­thing be­yond a con­cept — its first pro­duc­tion ve­hi­cle, the FF91. It has some amaz­ingly nifty ca­pa­bil­i­ties, such as doors that recog­nise users/driv­ers, even ad­just­ing seats to their spec­i­fi­ca­tions, and a cam­era sys­tem rather than mir­rors. It also claims to ac­cel­er­ate from 0–100 km/h in less than 2.5 sec­onds, which is faster than any other elec­tric car in pro­duc­tion. Al­though it won’t be in pro­duc­tion un­til 2018, the com­pany ap­par­ently re­ceived over 64,000 global reser­va­tions within the first 36 hours of show­ing it off.

TOY­OTA CON­CEPT-I Pric­ing and avail­abil­ity TBC

As the name may sug­gest, the Toy­ota Con­cept-i is very much a con­cept at this point, with no fore­see­able pro­duc­tion date or price, it’s more of an ex­er­cise in de­sign than any­thing. Dif­fer­ing from other smart-cars, The Con­cept-i is said to fo­cus more on the driver and oc­cu­pants, with an im­pres­sive in-car AI called ‘Yui’ that learns and adapts to your driv­ing habits. An ex­am­ple given by Toy­ota was that Yui will of­fer to take the wheel if it senses you are fa­tigued from your long drive.
