Faraday Future electric SUV will sprint to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds

In under three seconds, the FFZERO1 should sprint to 100 km/h. The electric supersporter was shown in 2016 by Faraday Future at the electronics trade fair CES. The Faraday Future car, which will be unveiled at the upcoming CES (5 to 8 January 2017), will be even faster. The orientation is rather bourgeois, it is a van-like SUV. The first pictures show an elongated, aerodynamically sophisticated car.

“FF Prototype”
The manufacturer designates the new car simply as Faraday Future Prototype. However, FF is not for the model name, but for Faraday Future. The car should be faster than a Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous. A video of the company shows an acceleration competition in which a camouflaged Erlkönig crosses the finish line in front of the rival. At the same time, the electric Tesla sprints to 100 km in 2.5 seconds. Faraday has also launched the vehicle against the Tesla Model X, the Bentley Bentayga and the Ferrari 488 GTB – a reference to quite different competitors.

Car-to-car communication and more
As it is a future-oriented car, the Faraday Future novice has more modern technology besides the electric drive. So obviously he has a car-to-car communication technology, it should “connect with any other car”, so Faraday Future on its Facebook page. It should also be a “new type of autonomous vehicle”. Also, the car has cameras instead of mirroring and particularly ergonomic seats. In addition, the light pattern held in the look of the X-shaped company logo falls on the front and rear – which is good, does not explain Faraday Future yet.

Specially developed inverter
There are also very few details on the electric drive and the batteries. But the new version has the inverter patented by Faraday Future, called Echelon Inverter. It comes with very few components and thus offers a 20 to 30 percent higher power density than previous inverters. The inverter is responsible for the control of the electric motor (including recuperation) in the case of electric vehicles. This makes it decisive for the overall efficiency of the vehicle.
