Faraday Future, a California-based electric car start-up, unveiled its first consumer model, the FF91, at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
The FF 91 is the company's first production model. Fitted with a 130 kWh battery, Faraday Future says the car has a range of 378 miles (608 kilometers).
Faraday Future drew crowds of admirers at the CES in 2016 with the futuristic FFZERO1 concept car.
Attendees of the launch watched a video of the FF 91 electric vehicle racing a Tesla Model S. Faraday Future claims the FF91 can go from 0-60 mph in 2.39 seconds, marginally quicker than the Tesla S -- which does it in 2.5 seconds.
The company also showcased the car's "Driverless Valet" parking feature. Owners would also be able to summon the vehicle to pick them up at a specific location and time.
Faraday Future's "Variable Platform Architecture" (VPA) is a powertrain system designed to be flexible. The chassis and body are a single form which improves the overall vehicle rigidity, safety and handling of the car, the company says.
The FF 91 combines the performance of a supercar with an interior designed for comfort and luxury, the company says.
The car is expected to cost upwards of $100,000.
Buyers can reserve a FF 91 with a deposit of $5,000.
Faraday Future is also involved in Formula E, the all-electric racing series, partnering with Dragon Racing to form the Faraday Future Dragon Racing team for the 2016-17 world championship season.
"We're creating technology that has never existed before," Nick Sampson, a senior vice president, said at the CES launch.
The first FF 91 cars are expected to be delivered in 2018 at the earliest.
