Faraday Future (“FF”), a California-based global shared intelligent mobility ecosystem company, today announced that its class defining ultimate-intelligent tech-luxury electric FF 91 will now have additional passenger-focused features available at launch. Rear seat passengers in the FF 91 will lower and raise the unique 27-inch Rear Passenger Display (RSD) with a simple voice command and also have the ability to conduct in-vehicle video conferencing while commuting.
FF believes the AI-enhanced voice experience will lead the future of connected vehicle interactions. FF is immersing its first-party voice assistant, the FFAI, deeply into the vehicle OS, enabling it to work continually with as many user touchpoints as possible. Carrying this mission forward, rear-seat passengers will now be able to use this voice experience to lower and raise the 27-inch RSD that descends from the cabin roof with simple commands.
FF 91 is also equipped with in-cabin-facing cameras that support videoconferencing features. When the RSD is turned on, users can access their contacts through conferencing applications to keep connected with friends, family, or business associates while on the road. The applications will run natively on the in-vehicle computer and be mirrored to the users’ mobile devices for remote control.
FF 91’s initial design phase for the rear passenger experience sought to create a conduit between the home and office, the third internet living space. The rear passenger experience in FF 91 is more than simple transportation from Point A to Point B. With enabled videoconferencing, passengers can now experience a level of comfort, enjoyment, and resourcefulness that until now has not existed in a passenger vehicle.
“FF will deliver the latest and most advanced user-focused capabilities in the FF 91. These voice control and video conferencing upgrades are a crucial part of our third-internet living space experience,” said Hong Rao, Vice President, I.A.I at FF. “We continually seek out and discover new ways to enhance both the user and the unique mobility experience of the FF 91, and with these features, we believe our users will truly benefit from the advanced technology we are incorporating into our vehicles.”
FF is currently preparing to merge with Property Solutions Acquisition Corp. (“PSAC”) (NASDAQ: PSAC), a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC). The previously announced merger, expected to close in the second quarter of 2021, will result in the combined company listing on the Nasdaq Stock Market under the new ticker symbol “FFIE”. FF’s flagship electric vehicle (“EV”) – FF 91 – is planned to be launched within 12 months of the closing of the merger.
As the only next-gen intelligent internet EV product, the FF 91 will deliver a unique intelligent Internet electric mobility experience which combines extreme technology, ultimate user-experience, and a holistic ecosystem. Featuring an industry-leading 1,050 horsepower, and a 130-kWh battery with submerged liquid cooling technology, FF 91 achieves 0-60 mph in less than 2.4 seconds.
