Electric carmaker Faraday Future says it has received 64,124 reservations for its all-electric FF 91 it revealed at CES within 36 hours of the event.
Faraday didn’t said how many of those were “priority” reservations for the 1,050-horsepower FF 91, which require a refundable $5,000 payment, versus how many are the free standard reservation.
The first 300 orders will have the opportunity to upgrade to an exclusive launch series, the Alliance Edition, in March 2017. A portion of the sales proceeds for each Alliance Edition sold will be donated towards an environmental fund which closely aligns with FF’s sustainability efforts. Additionally, the first unit of the FF 91 Alliance Edition will be auctioned at a gala in March. All proceeds from the first Alliance Edition’s auction will also be donated to the environmental fund.
“Standard reservations confirm the intent to reserve a non-priority spot in line when the FF 91 becomes available for purchase. Priority reservations require an initial fully refundable deposit of $5,000 to secure a priority spot in the reservation line, as well as provides eligibility for upgrading the reservation to the exclusive FF 91 Alliance Edition this spring,” Faraday Future said. “While we are thrilled to receive such overwhelming interest in FF 91, we are unable to provide specific details with regards to reservation type.”
Faraday claims the FF 91 can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in a mere 2.39 seconds.
FF 91’s battery technology doesn’t sacrifice range for performance. Outfitted with a 130 kWh battery, FF 91 achieves a range of 378 miles (EPA est.) and over 700 km (NEDC est.) from the high energy density batteries, engineered in partnership with LG Chem.
FF 91 also has the fastest charge speed currently available, with the ability to charge at more than 500 miles per hour. The home charger, included with the vehicle, achieves 50 percent to full charge in under 4.5 hours at 240V.
Pricing for the FF 91 hasn’t been announced. If all goes well, the production of FF 91 is planned to start in 2018.
