Faraday Future showed up out of nowhere last year with a lot of money from its Chinese investors; the company blew everyone’s mind with its concept car and then proceeded to disappear.
The company, since then, has been on a roller coaster; in the past few weeks alone there have been scathing reports of the company’s unpaid bills, millions of dollars in unaccounted liabilities and departure of key staff. The construction of its $1 billion manufacturing facility in Nevada was also delayed.
That’s all seems to be irrelevant to the marketing department; Faraday Future has been teasing everyone with a brand new car that it claims will hit production later this year. This time, it’s not just a concept.
Just as the last year, the company is promising great things this year; teasing that its cars can talk to each other, has more torque than Tesla’s Model S, and even a bit of A.I.
The A.I. bit, of course, is what could overlap with Microsoft’s vision; after all, Cortana is meant to be the be-all and end-all of all artificial assistants.
Cortana, in fact, is expected to be at the Nissan keynote in a few days – will be interesting to see what they can do with a car.
The promises, once again, seem to be piling up; whether the company can deliver on them will be something only time can answer.
The event, of course, is in Las Vegas; but you don’t need to get on a plane to see what Faraday Future has to offer.
Faraday Future will be live streaming the event on their website. Here’s the live stream:
