SF Motors Unveils Advanced Intelligent Electric Vehicle Technology to Accelerate Global Access to EVs

Tomorrow, SF Motors will show off what it believes is the next generation of intelligent, safe, and connected EVs at its Santa Clara, California, headquarters. The event will also be streamed live online. The big reveal event is the culmination of two years of planning, team building, and strategic acquisitions that have brought the company to this point.

Tomorrow, SF Motors* will show off what it believes is the next generation of intelligent, safe, and connected EVs at its Santa Clara, California, headquarters. The event will also be streamed live online. The big reveal event is the culmination of two years of planning, team building, and strategic acquisitions that have brought the company to this point.

Leading up to the event, SF Motors has been dropping teasers to whet the appetites of gearheads and EV enthusiasts alike. A pair of beautiful LED lights frame up the front of the car while a side profile photo reveals curves that hint at an aero sedan with unique lines in the front fenders that tug at the imagination.

Rewinding the clock, SF Motors is the brainchild of 29 year-old Founder John Zhang, who launched the company in Silicon Valley in 2016. Shortly thereafter in January of 2017, its parent company Sokon Industry Group was granted permission by the Chinese government to start production of electric vehicles, giving the SF Motors team early insights to electric vehicle manufacturing.

In March of 2017, SF Motors inaugurated its headquarters in Santa Clara, California, where it has continued to grow, adding another 100 employees in 2017 alone. The facility was remodeled to communicate the design ethos of the company out to the world. Keep an eye out on the livestream of the big unveiling tomorrow for some of the beautiful design features of the headquarters, where the event will be hosted.

The team is reaching to the corners of the globe, having launched 7 strategically located research and design centers in many of the world’s automotive R&D hubs — including Ann Arbor, Michigan, the heart of the German auto industry in Stuttgart, and another on the way in Tokyo, Japan.

In order to bring all of the tech together into a production vehicle, SF Motors acquired the retired Humvee plant in Indiana in November of last year. All the while, SF Motors has continued to push the envelope with innovative solutions, as evidenced by its real-world testing of its autonomous vehicle technologies out on the streets of California, where it holds a CA AVT Permit.

With its impressive R&D footprint and deep connections in the US and China, SF Motors has the potential to be a big player in the domestic and global automotive markets.

That brings us to today. SF Motors is now on the cusp of taking the wraps off of its baby. After two years of working quietly behind the scenes, the SF Motors team is finally ready to offer a glimpse into their vision for what an electric car should look like. What it believes the future will look like.

With the unveiling of its first production vehicle tomorrow, we are looking for details. When will the vehicle be moving into production? How far will it go on a charge? What kind of power will it be packing under the hood … or between the axles? How much will it cost? And of course, when can I buy one?

There are a lot of details that so many of us are pining for, but from what we know today about SF Motors’ capability, we are excited for the big reveal tomorrow and thanks to an exclusive arrangement with the SF Motors team, CleanTechnica will be there in person, covering the event live.

Tune in at SFMotors.com or come hang out with us at CleanTechnica.com on Wednesday, March 28 at 7:30pm PST (10:30pm EST), where we’ll be livestreaming the event and sharing all the juicy bits.
