Faraday Future Readies for Phase Two

Faraday Future announced today it is one step closer to restarting construction on its North Las Vegas site.

The second phase of the Stage 1 manufacturing project at Faraday’s Apex site entered the competitive bidding process, and Faraday officials said they have five proposals from U.S. and international contractors and will continue the bidding process.

Faraday Future's FF 91 (shown above) has peak motor power of 1050 horsepower, delivering 0-60 mph time of 2.39

“We look forward to starting the construction of our Phase 2 plant as soon as possible,” Faraday officials said in a press release.

Phase 2 construction includes an additional facility which will be built onsite to deliver the company's flagship vehicle, the FF 91, including the ultra-luxury limited Alliance Edition models.

"This plant is an extra investment made to facilitate the orders Faraday Future received, which far exceeded expectations after the CES reveal of our first production car," the company said.

Faraday halted construction on the facility in November after the company said it needed to focus on developing and presenting its flagship vehicle.

Faraday said its commitment to Nevada and its $1 billion investment in the region over the next few years has never wavered.

“We’ve completed the initial preparations of the site, which included the removal of 2.5 million cubic yards of dirt and grading of the entire site,” the press release said. “Our initial investment of $120 million in Nevada has also created hundreds of jobs locally.”
