Faraday Future unveiled an ambitious electric prototype FFZERO1 at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas
Faraday Future FFZERO1 is a high performance electric car built upon a modular engineering system that is slated to be the basis for all future production vehicles. The 1,000-horsepower car was unveiled during annual CES event in Nevada. The wonder vehicle can accelerate from zero to 60 in three seconds, with a top speed of more than 200 miles per hour.
The FFZERO1 concept is an amplified version of the design and engineering philosophies informing FF’s forthcoming production vehicles. This project liberated our designers and inspired new approaches for vehicle forms, proportions, and packaging that we can apply to our upcoming production models. – Richard Kim, Head of Design at Faraday Future
Faraday Future FFZERO1 concept is expected to demonstrate a modular design approach. Dubbed Variable Form Architecture, it allows any number of body styles to be built atop the same chassis. To implement the new driver-focused proportions, a Chinese-backed electric vehicle company, used some innovative lightweight materials and composites to push the canopy forward to achieve an ideal aerodynamic teardrop profile. Running through the interior length of Faraday Future FFZERO1 prototype, aerodynamic tunnels make air flow through the car, thus reducing drag and improving battery cooling.
Faraday Future features 4 Quad Core Motors, one at each wheel, that delivers over 1,000 horsepower. Its single-seat configuration not only defines the interior but offers a comfortable, weightless body position, holding the driver at a 45 degree angle, ensuring efficient blood circulation.
Faraday Future is expected to break ground in a few weeks on its $1 billion Nevada factory, and FFZERO1 concept illustrates what the company may be capable of building. Moreover, the company claims that it has prototypes testing aspects of the electric-car technology that Faraday will use to build a real car.
