With our pre-production vehicles continuing their on-road testing, the team at FF has been continuously enhancing the In-Vehicle Infotainment experience for the FF 91. I’m delighted to introduce a few product highlights we have built out.

A flexible Driver Control framework

In OTA (over-the-air) update enabled consumer products, the software has been known to outgrow its hardware capability constantly. While building the steering wheel control experience, we have chosen to replace the conventional single-action hardware buttons with generic 5-way controllers and designed a contextual-aware digital user experience to work hand-in-hand with the controllers. This effort allows drivers to control the…


Since 2014, when Faraday Future (FF) was founded, we have been committed to developing innovative technologies that not only redefine mobility and connectivity in the automotive space but also serve to improve people’s health. We believe everyone has the right to breathe clean air. But in too many parts of the world, the predominant view is of a skyline thick with smog and pollution. As a forward-thinking leader in clean energy electric vehicle “EV” technology, we are confident we can reverse this adverse trend. …


Part two of a four-part series detailing the creation of FF91’s user experience. Part one explored Seamless Entry and Intelligent Lighting, and part two introduces Kinetic Vehicle Controls.

FF 91’s Third Internet Living Space is built around the notion that “every seat is a great seat,” where each seat is a highly customizable zone dedicated to the passenger sitting in that zone. …


Safety vs style. Usability vs design. Compromise vs steadfast. These are decisions that need to be made with the direction we want to take with our solutions. Luckily, we at Faraday Future (FF) want to have a ‘user-first’ mentality where we take the experience and break the established automotive mold to deliver a truly remarkable and innovative automotive experience.

The infotainment industry takes to heart to deliver their solutions for all users at all occasions, not compromising due to difficulty or effort in design. From the beginning, we make the driver’s experience our priority and leave no holes to be…


My work as an Aerodynamicist is where art and science meet, come together and do a delicate dance. It’s then about marrying the two to yield a product that’s both beautiful and aerodynamic.

At Faraday Future, aerodynamics development commences not with engineers, but with our studio designers. As soon as pencils touch paper, designers are sketching our future vehicles with aerodynamics in mind — from sleek silhouettes to hidden ducts that redirect air to favorable places around the vehicle.

Instilling the science of aerodynamics in the mindset of our studio designers facilitates the harmony of both engineering and aesthetics —…


What exactly is Snell’s law? And why is an electric car company interested in its dynamics? Snell’s law (also known as Snell–Descartes law and the law of refraction) is a formula used to describe the relationship between the angles of incidence and refraction, when referring to light or other waves passing through a boundary between two different isotropic media, such as water, glass, or air. The law is used in optical ray tracing to compute the angles of incidence or refraction and in experimental optics to find the refractive index of a material.

Faraday Future (FF), recently introduced the concept…


We can all play a part in saving the planet from adverse climate change. From small efforts like recycling, reusing and minimizing waste and energy usage to developing new technologies and products to make an even bigger impact on climate change. For the last 25 years, I’ve been lucky enough to do both — I’ve been able to help make electric vehicle technology viable and bring many exciting electric vehicles into production. The instant torque and acceleration you feel in an EV is an addicting thrill and will undoubtedly put a smile on your face. …


FF Multi-User Multi-Display Solution Overview

Users driving and riding in FF 91 will feel more rested, energized, and more productive even after being stuck in traffic or driving in long commutes for hours. The rear seats deliver industry-leading 60-degree rear-seat reclining angles, putting passengers in the biomechanically and ergonomically optimal position for comfort. This first-class rear seating experience provides lower leg, lumbar, and upper back adjustments and support. The seats also offer massage, heating, and ventilation for cooling. Like a private jet on 22-inch wheels, FF 91 is designed to ensconce its passengers in a relaxing, lounge-like experience, from departure to destination. Every element of…


What will the future of driving look like? How will humans interact with their vehicles as technology incorporated into vehicles evolves? On average, people spend one hour every day in their vehicles. And while people generally enjoy their digital life to the fullest at home and at their destination, the time in transit is generally considered wasted, especially when stuck in traffic. At FF, our aspiration is to give back that one hour on the road by creating a “third internet living space” between a person’s home and destination. …


It has been a privilege for me to define FF 91 ‘s user experience in the past four years. Today I would like to share our unique design perspective about how we define user experience of FF 91. When buyers are on the hunt for a new car in 2020, they’re not going to find a car that’s designed to satisfy both drivers and passengers. Today’s cars and their infotainment systems are heavily focused on the driving experience, while passengers are an afterthought.

With FF 91, we took an entirely different approach and set out to create the ultimate in-cabin…
