Californian EV manufacturer eyes first factory location
Faraday Future, which describes itself as a “well-funded” mobility company, said it is developing a full range of 100% electric vehicles with a technology-first approach and a high level of connectivity, claiming that “today’s cars simply do not meet today’s needs”.
The company employs over 400 people from the automotive and technology industries, with many of its senior staff coming from Tesla Motors and BMW’s i electric vehicle division. It says its cars will offer unique ownership and usage models, autonomous driving and in-vehicle content.
Nick Sampson, senior vice president of Faraday Future, and former director of vehicle and chassis engineering at Tesla Motors, said: "Selecting the right location for the future FF manufacturing facility is critical to our overall goals. Producing our forward-looking and fully-connected electric vehicles not only requires the latest technology, but the right community partner.”
California, Georgia, Louisiana and Nevada are under consideration for the factory.
