Faraday Future’s real vehicle spotted for the first time but with heavy camouflage

ff test vehicle camouflaged

After unveiling a concept car not meant for production earlier this year, Faraday Future (FF) disappointed a lot of electric vehicle enthusiasts. But make no mistake, the company is developing a vehicle to bring to production and we have our first look at it today – albeit heavily camouflaged.

Earlier this month, we reported on FF’s prototype for its Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) program being spotted around Los Angeles, but they were using a Lincoln MKZ as a test mule.

Now we get to see the real vehicle they aim to bring to production – a fairly large SUV with a form reminiscent of Tesla’s Model X.

The vehicle was spotted by Everette Taylor, VP at on-demand car rental company Skurt, who shared the picture on Twitter without seemingly knowing what it was:

But we checked through our channels and we can confirm it’s a vehicle operated by FF.

It also matches the description of our previous report on the first vehicle Faraday Future aims to bring to production – though it’s obviously heavily camouflaged, but we can see that it’s a SUV or crossover. We previously reported that FF aimed to bring to market a large luxury crossover, which would likely sell for over $100,000.

We asked Faraday Future for an official comment and we will update if we get an answer.

Despite a very public debut at CES where it unveiled its FFZER01 concept and the also very public announcement of a $1 billion electric vehicle factory in North Las Vegas, the company has yet to comment on the vehicles it plans to bring to production at the plant other than releasing glimpses of its mule program.
