We're not sure whether to call it an SUV or a sedan — its feature list reads more like a concept — but the Faraday Future FF 91 is definitely interesting. Built on an all-electric, flexible powertrain system, its chassis and body are a single form for better handling and safety. That's doubly important since its multi-motor all-wheel drive system and 130 kWh battery are capable of producing 1,050 hp, a 0-60 time of under 2.4 seconds, and a range of 378 miles. The rest of the tech is equally impressive. Pop-up 3D lidar headlines an autonomous system that also includes 10 high definition cameras, 13 long and short range radars and 12 ultrasonic sensors. Facial recognition cameras on the exterior unlock the door for you automatically, then adjust settings like seating position, temperature, and driving style to suit your preferences, while an expression- and mood-sensing camera on the interior can prompt an experience to match or improve your mood, using music, temperature, scent, content, massage and more. Production starts in early 2018, with reservations available now for $5,000 a unit.
While Tesla has its eyes on the lower end of the market with the Model 3, the Lucid Air is ramping up to give them some competition on the high-end. This all-electric luxury vehicle has a motor and transmission that were developed in house, with a battery pack capable of outputting 1,000 horsepower, pushing the car from 0-60 in just 2.5 seconds while providing 400 miles of range. Autonomous driving systems and OTA software updates are also in the mix, and the interior promises to be extremely comfortable, with executive seats in the rear, high-end materials throughout, and a 29-speaker audio system that uses active noise cancellation to keep the cabin as quiet as possible. Production starts in late 2018 with deliveries expected to start soon thereafter.
