Faraday Future’s FF 91 starts down the assembly line

EV startup Faraday Future (FF) has announced that the first complete body-in-white for its upcoming FF 91 luxury EV has initiated full-vehicle assembly at the company’s new factory in Hanford, California.

FF 91, first introduced at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show, has undergone over two years of validation testing.

“It is honestly inspiring to see how hard we as a team are working to achieve FF 91,” said Hector Padilla, Tooling and Equipment Manager for Body-in-White. “And it is not that we must push people to work, but everyone is more and more eager to do so as they see the complete car become a reality.”

Faraday is using several innovative manufacturing technologies on the new model, including: self-piercing rivets for joining the aluminum body structure; aluminum resistance spot welding; cold metal transfer welding; flowform screw technology; Flexweld resistance element welding that facilitates aluminum-to-steel welding; and wireless transducerized torque tools.

The order book for FF 91 has been open since the beginning of this year, and the first deliveries are due to begin in December.

“Everything we do relies on our proven User Planning to User approach,” said FF founder and CEO YT Jia. “FF will redefine the meaning of customization – each user in the near future will have the opportunity to provide input and witness the creation of their own personal FF 91 along the bespoke production line at FF Hanford.”
