Faraday Future To Debut Electric Car At CES 2016
California-based Chinese-backed startup car company Faraday Future will make its first public appearance at the Consumer Electronics Show in January 2016. The company will be unveiling its first electric car concept at the said event.
A startup car manufacturing company known as Faraday Future will be making its first entry and appearance at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV. The company operates from a facility in Gardena. It will be showcasing its concept electric car on CES inspired by its design and the carmaker's engineering prowess.
The startup carmaker got its name from Michael Faraday, a British scientist who made innovations in electrochemistry and electromagnetism in the 1800s. Also, his greatest discoveries include electrolysis, diamagnetism, and electromagnetic induction, which is now commonly used by electric vehicles in charging processes.
Though Faraday is still in the early days, the company wants to offer electric vehicles tailored with seamless and smart connectivity preferences. Rather than just focusing on building and vending vehicles to consumers, the company is also developing other traits for its technology and automotive industries. This includes unique vehicle model ownerships, in-vehicle contents and auto-navigation.
One of the key persons behind the startup car company is Jia Yueting. He is a Chinese billionaire who runs a company named Letv, which has the same platform as Netflix. One of the many big partners of Letv is Aston Martin and Yueting said that he would like to introduce new connectivity technologies for Faraday Future's vehicles.
The car company also managed to get a number of people from well-known car companies like Tesla Motors and BMW. Richard Kim, who used to work for BMW, is now the startup's head designer. Former Tesla Senior Engineer Nick Sampson is now their research and development head. In addition, other company divisions like its manufacturing, purchasing and human resources are composed of ex-Tesla staff.
Faraday Future aims to launch a single model in 2017, but is eyeing at seven different car models for mass production. The Consumer Electronics Show will run from Jan. 6-9, 2015 in Las Vegas, NV, and the startup car company will debut in the said event to make their presence known in the automotive industry.
