“The confirmation of our 381 miles of range by the EPA is truly exciting news for FF and validates what we know about the FF 91: the segment leading FF 91 will be the first high-end, high-performance, luxury, intelligent EV and will reset customer expectations for both driver and passenger experience,” said Faraday Future CEO Dr. Carsten Breitfeld.

“Our integrated propulsion system with a lithium-ion battery pack efficiently converts battery energy to power the vehicle and effectively recovers and reuses brake energy to optimize and extend range. FF’s segment leading engineering provides a significant step forward in electric vehicle technology, providing a tremendous increase in EV range.”

The FF 91 is in pre-production at the company’s ieFactory California in Hanford, and users can begin pre-ordering the EV at Faraday Future’s website or using its FF Intelligent app.
