The Hanford manufacturing plant, a cutting-edge facility encompassing one million square feet, boasts a combination of skilled craftsmanship and advanced automated production techniques. Currently, this facility is the epicenter of production for the Ultimate AI TechLuxury FF 91 2.0 Futurist Alliance. It strategically resides between the technology hub of Silicon Valley and Faraday Future’s Global Headquarters in Los Angeles. Once the ongoing factory build-out is completed, the plant is anticipated to have the capacity to manufacture around 10,000 vehicles annually. Earlier this year, Faraday Future celebrated a significant milestone with the commencement of production and the successful roll-out of its inaugural production build vehicle at the FF ieFactory California.
Matthias Aydt, the Global CEO of Faraday Future, emphasized the integral role of the Hanford manufacturing facility in the company’s operations, stating, “Our Hanford manufacturing facility has been instrumental in producing series models of our FF 91 2.0 Futurist Alliance since earlier this year. This agreement will help us make the necessary continued investments and improvements to the Hanford plant that will facilitate increased production and deliveries of the FF 91 2.0 Futurist Alliance.”
In addition to this expansion, Faraday Future recently confirmed the continuation of its Co-Creation program and shared preliminary plans for FF 91 2.0 Futurist Alliance deliveries slated for October, a pivotal part of their ongoing ‘Delivery Co-Creation Day’ initiative. Notably, the company has already completed the delivery of the FF 91 2.0 Futurist Alliance to its founder, YT Jia, and anticipates subsequent deliveries to global icon and entrepreneur Chris Brown, as well as world champion race car driver Justin Bell. Scaling up deliveries remains a paramount strategic objective for the company.
This strategic move to secure the Hanford facility underscores the commitment of Faraday Future to fortifying its manufacturing capabilities, setting the stage for an exciting phase of growth and innovation in the intelligent electric mobility sector.
