Where’s Faraday Future’s $1 Billion Factory?

Back in late twenty fifteen, California startup Faraday Future announced its intent to build a massive $1 billion factory in the Nevada desert north of Las Vegas. It would, the company promised, be the place where it would produce multiple electric cars with performance, range and specifications to match Tesla’s Model S and Model X.

It even managed to gain $335 million in tax relief and abatements form the Nevada State legislature to help secure the deal.

But while Faraday Future had promised its factory would be well under construction by the start of Spring 2017, little more has happened than ground works. So where’s the factory, and what’s next for the Chinese-backed firm?

    FF chose the wrong path. They should make the FF91 in an existing plant – it’s a high price, low volume vehicle which (if they were to copy the Tesla road map) can be leveraged to build new facilities and lower priced, higher volume vehicles. As it is, they will succeed to fail. And others will try to say “see nobody wants to buy EV’s, except for the ‘Tesla faithful'” and use it as an excuse to abandon/reduce their endeavors.
