Faraday Future, a California-based electric vehicle startup, has unveiled the all-new FF 91 2.0 Futurist Alliance. Positioned upmarket, this upcoming EV will serve as a competitor to the Cadillac Celestiq.
Limited to just 300 units, the FF 91 2.0 EV Futurist Alliance features three electric motors that develop a maximum output of 1,050 horsepower, allowing for a 0 to 60 mph dash of just 2.3 seconds. Equipped with a 143 KWh battery pack, this upscale luxury crossover also boasts a range of 381 miles off a full charge.
Of course, the interior of the FF 91 2.0 EV Futurist Alliance is also exemplary, and features multiple driver-facing displays, three 5G cellular modems, a 27-inch rear display, and the aiHYPERCAR+ software ecosystem. More specifically, this software allows the vehicle to learn user habits and create a more integrated experience. However, this AI system comes at a cost, and requires a yearly $14,900 subscription to access.
Speaking of pricing, the FF 91 2.0 Futurist Alliance is tagged with a $309,000 price tag. Notably, the EV startup is asking for a $5,000 deposit – as well as an undisclosed destination freight charge – for customers to secure their own 91 2.0 Futurist Alliance.
For prospective customers who don’t want to pay full price, FF also offers the FF 2.0 Futurist for “just” $249,000.
Owning to its positioning in the luxury EV market, and its steep asking price, the FF 91 2.0 EV Futurist Alliance will likely serve as a competitor to the 2024 Cadillac Celestiq. The uber-luxurious Caddy offers customers the ultimate level of customization, as prospective buyers have the ability to outfit their Celestiq as they see fit. The high-tech features list is extensive, and includes the likes of a 55-inch edge-to-edge center screen and an all-glass roof panel using Suspended Particle Device (SPD), to name just a few.
The production-spec Celestiq uses a 111-kWh battery pack to power an advanced all-wheel drivetrain. Total output is a GM-estimated 600 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque, yielding a 0-60 acceleration of 3.8 seconds. The new flagship rides on the GM BEV3 platform, with handcrafted production expected to officially kick off in December 2023. Availability will be by waitlist only.
