Five years have passed since Faraday Future unveiled the FF 91 at CES in 2017.
While the model was originally slated to go into production in 2018, the crossover has routinely been delayed as the company has faced crisis after crisis, including some of their own making. However, the journey appears to be reaching its conclusion as Faraday Future has announced plans to unveil the “production intent” FF 91 on February 23 at 4:00 PM PST (7:00 PM EST).
It remains to be seen how much has changed in the past five years, but the company’s website still claims the vehicle will have a tri-motor powertrain that develops 1,050 hp (783 kW / 1,065 PS) and enables the FF 91 to rocket from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 2.39 seconds. The company has also claimed their “lithium-ion battery cells achieve the world’s highest energy density – nearly double that of a production automotive battery” and said this will allow for a range “well in excess” of 300 miles (483 km) on a single charge.
We are 7 days away from the unveiling of the 1st Production Intent #FF91! This achievement marks Production Milestone #4 – production intent builds for final engineering validation & certification.

While we should learn more next week, the company has previously said the FF 91 Futurist Alliance Edition will come equipped with 11 different displays including a 17-inch screen for the front passenger and a 27-inch display for rear seaters. Other highlights are slated to include class-leading legroom, NASA-inspired zero gravity seats, and a relaxing “Spa mode.”
Earlier this month, Faraday Future said the FF 91 is scheduled to go into production in the third quarter of this year. If that happens, it will be good news, but only a handful of people are actually waiting as the company recently admitted statements about receiving “more than 14,000 reservations for the FF 91 vehicle were potentially misleading because only several hundred of those reservations were paid, while the others (totaling 14,000) were unpaid indications of interest.”
