The Faraday Future FF91 Gets an EPA Range of 381 Miles

The Faraday Future FF 91 has now been certified by the EPA.

  • The company says this vehicle is inching closer to production after many long delays

  • The electric SUV will be capable of driving 381 miles (613 kilometres) on a charge according to the EPA

  • The automaker says the first production units could be made before the end of 2022

Faraday Future is one of the numerous start-up automakers that have presented their first model in the past few years.

The automaker’s FF91 luxury electric SUV has been delayed many times since its public debut, but it now appears to be closer to production than before since it has received its official certification by the EPA, a necessary step before any vehicle can be sold in the United States.

According to the government agency, this model will have a range of 381 miles (613 kilometres), which is much more than was originally intended by the company.

Indeed, Faraday Future had previously said the FF91 would have a range of over 300 miles (483 kilometres). This also means that the FF91 will have more range than most of its competitors such as the Cadillac Lyriq and the Tesla Model X, which have a range of 312 miles (502 kilometres) and 348 miles (560 kilometres) respectively.

This is assuming the FF91 makes it to production before more advanced competitors of course. As of now, the SUV has been delayed years from its originally planned release date, but the automaker says that its new factory in California is almost complete and has already begun manufacturing production intent vehicles.

The company is now expecting the first customer vehicles to exit the assembly line towards the end of the year after all testing and certification processes have been wrapped up.

Once it arrives on the market, the FF91 will not only have an advantage in range since it is also expected to be one of the fastest and most powerful SUVs in its segment.

This is due to its tri-motor powertrain that will develop 1,050 horsepower, which should be enough to make for a 0 to 60 mph (0 to 96 km/h) acceleration time of only 2.39 seconds, about 0.1 seconds faster than the Tesla Model X Plaid.
