Faraday Future teases first production car

Faraday Future, an American automotive start-up which operates in the electric mobility space, has released a set of teaser images of its first production vehicle. The company has announced that the car will be officially revealed on 3rd January 2017, and will then be showcased at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The two teaser images released appear to showcase the car's front and rear profiles. Though the images don’t reveal much about the car's overall design, they clearly indicate that the company has given their first production car a futuristic character. A long LED DRL strip runs above the front bumper and merges the two headlight assemblies. The rear also gets a wide LED strip that runs across the width of the car. Faraday Future's logo has been embedded in the V-pattern on the front as well as back of the car.

Media reports suggest that the new car from Faraday Future will be a crossover that will compete against the Tesla Model X. It will be powered by a 98 kWh battery pack and will have a company-claimed travel range of 482 km on a single charge.

The company had previously released a teaser video of its first production car, where it was shown silently pacing down a track.
