Camouflaged Faraday Future Electric SUV Spotted

Despite speculation to the contrary, it looks as though Faraday Future does indeed have something solid in the works, and it may well be fairly far along at this point. What appears to be a camouflaged Faraday Future SUV was recently spotted by a Twitter user by the name of Everette Taylor — reportedly giving us our first real look at what Faraday Future is up to.

I’d say that it’s a fairly normal looking SUV … which is a bit of a relief after that “Supercar concept” that the company showed off earlier this year at CES 2016. Ignoring the camouflage, the vehicle looks fairly normal, and like it would sell well if the specs and pricing are right. What do you think?

An unnamed source supposedly has confirmed that the picture is of a Faraday Future prototype, according to Autoblog, but no further details have been revealed as of yet.

That coverage states: “The profile of this heavily camouflaged crossover fits very closely to the teaser silhouette. What really gives the car away are the exposed hatch hinges protruding from the rear of the roof, which matches the teaser. … The vehicle has a low greenhouse and a steeply raked rear hatch. It’s also clear that this will be a relatively large and lengthy crossover that will be a more direct competitor to the Tesla Model X. Of course that’s assuming that this FF vehicle matches the range, performance, and price of the wing-doored Tesla.”

Going by what was revealed at CES earlier this year and what CleanTechnica was told in an interview with Senior Vice President of R&D Nick Sampson, every one of Faraday Future’s vehicles will make use of the Variable Platform Architecture chassis that the Supercar concept featured — which means that the battery pack is located under the floor of the vehicle seen above, as makes the most sense, of course.
