Faraday Future is a California-based automaker. Jia Yueting, the founder of LEtv (which is also known as Netflix of China) is supporting the company. The company is also thinking of opening a $1 billion production plant in Nevada, where it will concentrate on the production of self-driving electric vehicle.

This year in January at Consumer Electrics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the company introduced its 750 kW, 320 km/h, futuristic looking single-seat concept car, the FFZero1. The company noted, “It is more than a concept car—it is a car of concepts.”

This car’s user interface has been developed in such a way that it displays important information to the driver in an attractive and unobtrusive manner. This user interface gives information about the velocity and other related aspects of the car.

Driver’s seat has been developed on the basis of NASA zero gravity design; thereby, reducing the stress on driver while driving the car at high speeds.

In June, the company received an Autonomous Vehicle Testing (AVT) Permit from the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). According to the reports on Yahoo Tech, the company would start selling its cars.

… And again, it is still a concept car. Let’s see what would be the original product.
