Faraday Future Teases Crossover SUV For CES 2017 — Tesla Model X Rival?

Written By:

Faraday Future, the Chinese American carmaker has teased its first ever car ahead of the electric vehicle's debut at CES 2017 at Las Vegas in January.

In a very short video, the electric carmaker that hopes to rival Tesla showed off a heavily disguised version of its first ever model.

Looking at the video, the vehicle looks to be more of a crossover SUV, which would set the Tesla Model X as the first target for Faraday Future's engineering team.

The crossover SUV will be powered by batteries developed by Faraday and LG Chem which according to the two companies will be the "world's highest energy density for a production automotive battery".

The crossover SUV is based on a bespoke modular electric platform that will be the base for all of Faraday Future cars including the crossover.

The bespoke chassis was shown off the first time at CES 2016 when Faraday Future unveiled the FFZERO1 concept car.

The FFZERO1 was a single seater racing car that used four electric motors which pushed out around 1,000bhp.

According to Faraday, the FFZERO1 concept was capable of sprinting from 0-100km/h in under 3 seconds and could hit a top speed in excess of 320km/h.

The interiors featured a single seat which is angled at 45 degrees to improve driver comfort.

The steering wheel featured a mount for a smartphone which can be used to control some of the driving features.

So what do you think of Faraday's challenger for the Tesla Model X. Tell us your thoughts in the comments section below.
