Faraday Future, a California-based company, has introduced the next generation of their FF 91 electric hypercar.
The unveiling of the FF 91 2.0 comes six years after the launch of its predecessor. Alongside the regular FF 91 2.0 model, the company has also released a limited edition version called the FF 91 2.0 Futurist Alliance, with only 300 units available for purchase at a price of $309,000. While the pricing for the regular model has not been announced, it is expected to offer similar features.
Faraday Future has not only launched the FF 91 2.0 but also introduced a mobile ecosystem product called “FF aiHypercar+.” This product will be available through an annual subscription of $14,900 in the United States and China. The ecosystem comprises various components such as software, internet connectivity, vehicle services, personalized AI algorithms, and even specialized hardware tailored to specific user needs. The company’s statement emphasizes the comprehensive nature of their mobility ecosystem products.
The new generation FF 91 2.0 Futurist Alliance boasts a three-electric motor setup, offering an impressive combined power output of 1050hp and 1977Nm of torque. These figures surpass the industry’s current standards. Additionally, the vehicle features the largest battery pack in its segment, rated at 142kWh, which provides an EPA-certified range of 381 miles (613 kilometers).
In terms of performance, the FF 91 2.0 sets new benchmarks, with an acceleration time of 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in just 2.2 seconds. In addition, its acceleration-to-weight ratio of 0.78 outperforms both traditional and electric competitors. Furthermore, the FF 91 2.0 offers a spacious cabin with a wheelbase of 3,200mm and overall dimensions measuring 5,250mm in length, 2,283mm in width, and 1,598mm in height.
Ensuring safety, Faraday Future has implemented innovative features in the FF 91. The vehicle incorporates a “moat body structure” and “moat pack structure” that create a side impact crumple zone. By integrating these structures with the aluminum body, Faraday Future aims to strike a balance between optimal occupant protection and high voltage battery protection, while also providing efficient packaging space for the vehicle’s design.
Moreover, the FF 91 has successfully passed all the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) crash test requirements.
Faraday Future has also introduced their next-generation technology architecture, the FF aiHyper 6×4 Architecture 2.0. This advanced operating system focuses on vertical integration and horizontal penetration across the company’s six technology platforms and four technology systems. Faraday Future aims to achieve seamless cross-platform integration and maximize performance by integrating platform components at the system level. In addition, the integration of AI algorithms, AI engines, and AI services enables comprehensive AI capabilities, facilitating end-to-end integration with platforms and systems.
With the introduction of the FF 91 2.0 electric hypercar, Faraday Future aims to redefine the standards for intelligent EVs. Additionally, the introduction of the FF aiHyper 6×4 Architecture 2.0 showcases Faraday Future’s commitment to advanced technology integration and performance optimization. The FF 91 2.0 represents a significant leap forward in the electric hypercar market, showcasing the company’s dedication to innovation and pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the world of electric vehicles.
