faraday future announces sky high pricing for the ff 91 ev

Faraday Future was an early buzz-worthy player in the EV game, but its star has faded recently as it failed to deliver, well, anything and has had multiple brushes with bankruptcy and failure. Despite all of that, the company now has an actual vehicle to talk about, though the price tag will likely make it one of the rarest EVs around.

The FF 91 Futurist starts at $249,000, and the Futurist Alliance starts at a whopping $309,000. That’s more than the already-ridiculous Lucid Air and will exceed the bespoke Cadillac Celestiq in some configurations. That said, we’re talking about a powerful EV with 1,050 horsepower and 1,458 pound-feet of torque. It also delivers up to 381 miles of range.

Buyers wanting a Futurist Alliance model get unique benefits, such as an Apple Watch with a built-in Faraday Future app to control the vehicle. The company also said it would help owners customize their experience with the FF 91’s AI system. 

If you’re itching for an ultra-exclusive EV – and who isn’t – you’ll have to plop down a $5,000 deposit. The “lesser” Futurist model takes a $1,500 deposit, and the base FF 91 requires a $1,000 deposit. We don’t know how much options will cost, nor has Faraday Future confirmed delivery dates for the vehicle. We do know the first units will be delivered to an exclusive group of buyers, and the company has an event planned on June 6 for buyers participating in the Futurist Product Officer program, so we might start seeing the FF 91 on the roads soon.

    Might as well light 50 $100 bills on fire.

    Like an electric Duesenberg SJ, a vehicle not fit for the economic times it was born into.

    When the general public is upside down and 30 days late on an 84-month loan at 22.9% on their Kia Rio, this doesn't seem to be the answer to a question most people are asking.

      Including the sketchy starter-interlock device rendering the vehicle useless even IF the buyer turned in the third of three payments due per week to the BHPH lot from which they purchased said jalopy!

    This is actually the answer to the question I asked not that long ago.

    I just realized 80% of these EV vehicles producers are going to be liquidated within the next five years. It is not possible to survive by selling only 3000 vehicles a year. This reminds me of the dot.com bust of the late 90s and early 2000s. Those who don't learn from history repeat it.
