Who Is Faraday Future?
We’re hearing every update about Tesla on a daily basis. Every so often though, the name Faraday Future comes up. For example, when reading about Tesla’s Gigafactory in Nevada, we may hear that Faraday Future also has plans for a massive billion dollar factory in Nevada. This raises the questions; Who are Faraday Future? Are the making electric cars?
Faraday Future was established in 2014. It is a US-based, Chinese-backed, global company focused on the development of intelligent electric cars and mobility solutions. They are currently based in Gardena, California, with plans for a large factory in Vallejo and the state of Nevada.
Faraday Future expects to launch its first fully electric vehicle in 2017, with the intent of producing a larger range of vehicles over time.
