Faraday Future or FF as they preferred to be called, is an innovative American startup that operates as an electric car company. It was founded in April 2014 and has its headquarters in Silicon Valley and Southern California. The company was named after the English scientist, Michael Faraday, who studied electromagnetism and electrochemistry and is known to have discovered electromagnetic induction.

Since its birth, the company has been a haven for high-profile executives like Stefan Krause- a BMW FFZERO1Veteran and Finance expert, Nick Sampson- Former Director of Vehicle and Chassis Engineering in Tesla, Dag Reckhorn- Former Director of Manufacturing for Tesla S Model, Allan Cherry- Former Senior Director of Human Resources in Tesla, and many others.

Faraday Future has lately gained popularity over their concept car,. The FFZERO1 is a single-seat sports automobile that was presented at the Consumer Electronics Show in 2016. The car was greatly adored by sports car enthusiasts all over the world. The car has an all-white interior, a smartphone enabled steering wheel and a 45-degree sitting position (that was specially created with NASA’s guidelines, to get the perfect angle for the driver’s comfort).

The car even has a head rest that pumps air and water into the driver’s crashed helmet as reported by Engadget. All these hi-tech enhancements come just shortly after Faraday Future revealed plans to produce future cars with sensors and internet connection.

Their production vehicle, FF91, was launched early this year at a Consumer Electronic Show, barely a year after the FFZERO1 was launched. Only 300 units of the FF91 are available for release in 2018. A total reservation of 64,124 was requested in the span of 36 hours after it was launched. The car boasts of an acceleration capability of 0-60 mph in under 3 seconds or 0-97km/h in less than 3 seconds. This dream car cost less than $300,000.
