FF 91 - The First of its Kind
The “All-Ability aiHypercar” FF 91 2.0 is a newly evolved silicon-based species, which features incredible vehicle configurations, unparalleled luxury features and exhilarating performance. Possessing three motors with 1050hp; 1977Nm of electric motor output torque, and the largest in the class battery pack energy: 142kwh; it has an EPA (U.S.) certified range of 381 miles, the farthest in class.
From the beginning, the FF 91 2.0 was developed to be an All-AI, All-Hyper, All-Ability vehicle. FF accomplished this through its 6x4 Architecture. The architecture has 4 Technology systems, supported by, and integrated with 6 Technology platforms. Together in FF 91 2.0, these systems and platforms deliver the ultimate experience to FF’s users. The 4 technology systems that are the foundation of the FF 91 2.0 are comprised of the Magic-All-In-One, Hyper Multi-Vectoring, 3rd AiSpace/FF aiPal, and AiDriving. In addition, these 4 systems are supported by FF’s 6 Technology Platforms which include, FF Open App for open application development, FF aiOS for User Interface Systems, FF aiHW 2.0 is FF’s second-generation computing platforms, FF Mechanical are the structural, EV, and safety systems, FF Cloud is for computing and Storage and FF AI is for Language and other AI systems.
In terms of safety, the FF 91 2.0 has a “moat body structure” + “moat pack structure”, creating a side impact crumple zone. The "moat structures" are integrated with the aluminum body, providing the largest-in-class battery crumple zone. The “moat design” is intended to balance optimal occupant protection and high voltage battery protection as well as providing optimal packaging space for the vehicle design.
The FF 91 2.0 vehicle successfully passed the U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) crash test requirements. FF has performed the highest severity crash tests and has passed all of these tests successfully, including front, side and rear crash tests.
FF 91 2.0 also boasts the longest interior space among ultra-luxury vehicles with a similar wheelbase + Zero-Gravity seat with the industry's largest recline angle of 60 degrees, bringing the comfort level of first class to land. With an acceleration time of just 2.27 seconds for 0-60 mph (96 km/h), the FF 91 2.0 takes the top spot in terms of acceleration-to-weight ratio of 0.78, surpassing traditional and electric vehicle competitors alike. This performance capability has been proven, including the FF 91 2.0 setting lap time class records at two American racetracks, Button Willow Raceway and Willow Springs International Raceway.
As with everything at FF, the platforms are continuously being upgraded and improved. Future development plans include integration of third-party developed plug-ins via the open platform, and to utilize the vehicle as part of a generative AI database. FF is also actively working on enhanced performance packages, and AI Racing technology for improved track experiences. These systems will continuously improve via internal strategies and with our Co-Creation partners.
