Faraday Future has released a short video teaser of an all-electric SUV, which we believe will be its first production vehicle.

Earlier this month, the company confirmed on Twitter that it's first production vehicle will make its debut at CES 2017, which takes place at the beginning of January in Las Vegas.

First teased in April and then spied in August on the streets of Los Angeles, Faraday's SUV is expected to be pitched against the Tesla Model X.

The company has yet to reveal any specifications about the car. We do know, though, that it will be based on the company's VPA architecture, which can be scaled to vehicles of different sizes, and can accommodate between one and three electric motors.

Faraday Future has also announced that the car will use a lithium-ion battery pack from LG Chem with the "highest energy density for a production automotive battery". Among other clients, LG Chem supplies batteries for the Chevrolet Bolt electric hatch.


The company will build its production vehicles at a new US$1 billion ($1.3 billion) factory outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. Last week, a report emerged showing that Faraday Future had fallen behind on payments to contractors building the facility.

Although Faraday's first production car is set to debut at CES — a year after it launched its first concept, the FF-ZERO1 — it's not known when the vehicle will start trundling out the factory gate, nor what type of sales model the company will adopt.
