0-60mph in 2.39 seconds

It’s the fastest-accelerating electric car in the world, and it’s utterly bonkers. Meet the Faraday Future FF 91.

Power to the people

The FF 91 serves up an almighty 1050 horsepower – that’s 300 more than a Lamborghini Aventador! Add to that a grippy all-wheel-drive system and you get a kidney-kicking 0-60mph time of just 2.39 seconds (conveniently, that’s 0.01 seconds faster than the Tesla Model S P100D). Ludicrous.

Personal valet

Sick of searching for a parking space? FF 91’s Driverless Valet parking means you can hop out and leave the car to park itself. When it’s time to head out, you can use the FFCTRL app to summon the car to collect you, or even set a pick-up time and location. It’s like having your own personal chauffeur.

Top of the range

‘Range anxiety’ is the long-standing thorn in the electric car’s side. But with a fully charged battery, the FF 91 can cruise for 435 miles – that’ll get you from London to Paris with 150 miles to spare. Need to juice up? You can get 500 miles of charge in just an hour.

Are you sitting comfortably?

FF 91 majors on luxury. The seats offer heating, ventilation and even a massage function. And in the back, they even recline, so you can literally kick back and relax. Fancy a bit of shade? Tap the windows and the ‘smart dimming glass technology’ turns them to privacy glass instantly.

Safe fam

The FF 91 will be the first production vehicle to use a retractable 3D Lidar… cool. In fact, its safety tech sounds like something you’d find on a fighter jet – there are ten high-definition cameras, 13 long- and short-range radars, and 12 ultrasonic sensors. Together, that means autonomous driving is possible, and makes it damn difficult to crash, too.

Open sesame

Even getting into the FF 91 offers a sense of occasion. The ‘gateway’ doors open automatically and they’re loaded with sensors that stop them dinging the car next to you. That’ll come in handy, too, given that the FF 91 is more than six centimetres wider than a Range Rover.

In your face

Does a car need facial recognition? Faraday Future reckon it does. The FF 91 can recognise your face and unlock the car without a key, then adjusts the car’s settings to your preference. It can also read your mood, and can change temperature, scent, music, and massage functions to help.
