FARADAY FUTURE FFZERO1 CONCEPT
This was a big one. Faraday Future (or FF as people kept shortening it to) talked a lot of smack about the biggest player in the electric car game, Tesla, before the unveiling of their concept at CES. They said it wouldn’t only be more efficient, but it would be quicker as well. Four quadcore electric motors were to propel the FFZERO1 to over 200 mph, zero to 60 in less than three seconds and boast over 1,000 horses.
When I got to FF’s display, it was packed. So many people standing around the FFZERO1. So many people getting in the way of my camera… I couldn’t blame them too much though – I mean, just look at it. It’s gorgeous!
So, you may be asking, “When can we see one of these things on the road?” Well, the answer is never. This concept doesn’t run and there is no production version planned. What FF is planning, however, is a modular vehicle platform that can be extended or shrunk to accommodate a full vehicle lineup; from a sports coupe to a full-size SUV. They could be the company to give Tesla a run for its money – if they can produce something that runs by 2017, that is.
