What Is The FFZERO1?
The FFZERO1 is an electric car from the company Faraday Future that was revealed at the 2016 CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas.
The FFZERO1 has 1,000 horsepower and can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under 60 seconds. The car has four motors – one at each wheel – and has a top speed of 200 miles per hour.
The car also is Internet-enabled and has the ability to learn the driver’s preferences and adjust to them over time.
The steering wheel of the FFZERO1 is smartphone enabled, allowing the driver to remote vehicle setup, real-time feedback and visualizations.
The FFZERO1 is currently a concept car, and Faraday Future does not expect to have production cars on the road until 2020.
It is the first car that will be produced using the company’s Faraday Future’s Variable Platform Architecture (VPA), which allows them to use a skateboard-style chassis for multiple arrangements of vehicles and styles.
The car also uses Faraday’s battery system that allows for “strings” of batteries to be added or removed from the car as needed.
The first batch of online impressions of the Faraday FFZERO1 have compared the vehicle’s stylings to the Batmobile from the Batman comic books.
The Faraday Future line of cars is expected to compete with Elon Musk’s Tesla, the biggest current brand in the emerging electric car market.
The company will be building their cars at a factory in North Las Vegas, Nevada.
