The Faraday Future FF91 electric SUV has been revealed at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The FF91 will roll out onto the streets in Spring 2018.

Faraday Future will allow customers to book their FF91's for free for a standard reservation or for $5,000 (Rs 3.41 lakh) for a priority reservation which will allow you to get one of 300 personalised "Alliance Edition" FF91s.

Part of the $5,000 fee will be donated to an environmental protection fund which will be named at a later date.

The FF91 is powered by a 130kWh battery pack from LG Chem, which Faraday Future claims is the densest automotive battery pack on offer today.

 

The power output of the battery pack is 1,037bhp (1,050hp) and Faraday Future claim that the FF91 can sprint from 0-60mph (0-96.5km/h) in just 2.39 seconds, a new world record.

The battery pack gives the FF91 an EPA range of 378 miles (608 kilometers) on a single charge and supports both regular and fast charging capabilities. Faraday Future stated that drivers will get 500 miles of range per hour of charge from the 200kWh fast charger.

Design wise, the FF91 features wraparound LED headlights and tail lights along with LED lights on the front bumper which tells other commuters if the electric SUV is in autonomous mode. 

Also present, are scissor doors and flying buttresses along with rear-facing cameras instead of door mirrors. The SUV also has a 0.25 drag coefficient.

Inside, the SUV's seats will intuitively know and learn your individual preferences using profile identification with "seamless entry" that relies heavily of the company's FF ID ecosystem.

The FF ID mentioned uses Bluetooth and facial recognition to unlock the doors of the SUV when it notices the id holder stepping up to the car.

Faraday Future claims the FF 91 features 10 front and rear facing cameras, 13 long and short range radars, 12 ultrasonic sensors and one high definition 3D LIDAR which guide its autonomous driving capabilities including autonomous parking.

The first FF91 will be auctioned off in March 2017.
