faraday future uncovers a self driving electric car ff91

American start-up technology company, Faraday Future, has unveiled a super fast electric car that the company says can accelerate from 0mph to 60mph (97kmph) in 2.39 seconds.

Intelligent electric cars company, Faraday Future, claims the new FF91 speeds up faster than Tesla Motor’s Model S or any other electric car in production. The new self-driving electric car FF91 was displayed by Faraday Future at the CES (Consumer Electronic Show) tech show in Las Vegas, United States.

The newly unveiled FF91 was presented via a live demo, in which FF91 drove itself around a car park and successfully backed into an empty space. A pre-recorded video also displayed the car accelerating from standstill to 60 miles per hour in only 2.39 seconds. Tesla Motor’s fastest vehicle Model S did it in 2.5 seconds on the same track. 

The senior vice president of Faraday Future, Mr. Nick Simpson, joked about the first failed attempt by saying “OK, it seems like it's a little bit lazy tonight." However, the second attempt revealed the true potential of the car.

The car designer Richard Kim tagged FF 91 as "weird-pretty". As per Faraday executives, it is basically a luxury electric SUV that will be the supreme technologically advanced vehicle in the electric car market when it goes into production in the early months of 2018. Advance reservations for this super fast car, as the company said will retail for about $180,000. 

The perspective buyers were contacted that they would be able to connect to the forthcoming electric car via a virtual account “FFID.” 

This event came a year after the corporation’s first press conference, where Faraday Future showed off a futuristic-looking model of the same vehicle. Numerous commentators criticized the model at a time for failing to give more detailing about what it was actually working on.
