It has nearly 500 employees in 40 countries and most of its employees have worked for some of the biggest brands in automotive industry such as Tesla, BMW, Ford, GM and SpaceX. In the future, the company plans to build a 3 million-square-foot production facility in Northern Las Vegas which reported to cost about $1 billion.
As for the vehicle itself, Faraday Future car most probably will be producing car similar to Tesla or most probably better. The company promised that its car’s battery pack will have 15 percent higher energy than Tesla’s Model S. Tesla Model S battery pack is about 85 kWh and it is able to travel about 270 miles on a full charge. However, Tesla does offer an upgrade of 90 kWh which able to travel about 286 miles on a full charge. If it is true then we can expect the battery pack for Faraday Future production car to come in around 98 kWh.
