In under three seconds, the FFZERO1 should sprint to 100 paces. The electric supersporter was shown in 2016 by Faraday Future at the electronics trade fair CES. The Faraday Future car, which will be unveiled at the upcoming CES (5 to 8 January 2017), will be even faster. The orientation is rather bourgeois, it is a van-like SUV. The first pictures show an elongated, aerodynamically sophisticated car.
The manufacturer designates the new car simply as FF Prototype. However, FF is not for the model name, but for Faraday Future. The car should be faster than a Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous. A video of the company shows an acceleration competition in which a camouflaged Erlkönig crosses the finish line in front of the rival. At the same time, the electric Tesla sprints to 100 km in 2.5 seconds. Faraday has also launched the vehicle against the Tesla Model X, the Bentley Bentayga and the Ferrari 488 GTB - a reference to quite different competitors.
Car-to-car communication and more
As it is a future-oriented car, the FF novice has more modern technology besides the electric drive. So obviously he has a car-to-car communication technology, it should "connect with any other car", so FF on its Facebook page. It should also be a "new type of autonomous vehicle". Also, the car has cameras instead of mirroring and particularly ergonomic seats. In addition, the light pattern held in the look of the X-shaped company logo on the front and rear - which is good, does not explain FF yet.
Specially developed inverter
There are also very few details on the electric drive and the batteries. But the new version has the inverter patented by FF, called Echelon Inverter. It comes with very few components and thus offers a 20 to 30 percent higher power density than previous inverters. The inverter is responsible for the control of the electric motor (including recuperation) in the case of electric vehicles. This makes it decisive for the overall efficiency of the vehicle.
Founded in 2014 - with Chinese in the background
Founded in 2014, the US start-up company Faraday Future now has around 1,000 employees and is based in Gardena, California. However, the donors are located in China - it is the electronics company LeEco, as the Los Angeles Times revealed in November 2011. FF also participates in Formula E in the 2016/2017 season with its own team called FF Dragon Racing. The used vehicle is to accelerate with its 270 hp in 2.9 seconds to 100 km / h
