The FF 91 has a futuristic design – was created by Richard Kim, the pen behind the i3 and the BMW i8 – and according to FF, has four electric motors of up to 783 kW that equals 1060 hp, which would allow it to move from 0 to 100 in 2.39 seconds.

Faraday Future, a company founded a couple of years ago made up of former Tesla and BMW employees, returned to the floor of the Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show to silence those who questioned its ability to create a viable car after its 2016 FFZERO1 will steal the show.
The FFZERO1 was an electric concept and, according to Faraday Future, autonomous, with four electric motors that would deliver more than 1,000 horsepower, but when it was presented many doubts were in the air.
