Faraday Future provided further updates on the progress of its North American manufacturing facility and unveiled the official name of the production facility located in Hanford, California, which will now be identified as “FF ieFactory California”. .
This facility will lead production of the TechLuxury FF 91 EV, which will arrive later this year.
“We continue to make exceptional progress in the construction and development of our Hanford manufacturing facility, and we are moving closer to our start of production (SOP) later this year,” said Dr. Carsten Breitfeld, Global CEO of Faraday Future. “The main body lines, electronic coating systems and paint and transport ovens are all in place for the start of production and we continue to build production vehicles that will be used for testing and validation. additional.”
FF uses an electrocoating process in their paint shop which will help ensure a noticeably superior paint finish and durability. The FF ieFactory California team is in the final stages of commissioning the tanks used in this process.
In the body shop, FF is nearing completion of Stage 6, which is the completion of the construction and installation of equipment in the final vehicle manufacturing areas. The body shop robots are undergoing final commissioning and validation to support production activity. This area, like the factory balance, focuses on quality and precision manufacturing processes and will help ensure that the FF 91 is built to the highest standards. This facility will adopt a custom, high-quality, luxury-focused production setup for the flagship FF 91 EV.
“FF ieFactory California” is not limited to manufacturing an EV product. FF creates a larger “intelligent ecosystem”, hence the “that is” in the name. While this plant is very meaningful to FF, it is equally so to the community of Hanford. Faraday Future will hire more than 350 new employees at this plant as FF ramps up production.
