The company has now announced that they have successfully tested the limits of FF 91 in its first attempt to challenge the 4,720-foot ascent of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

The FF 91, driven by FF Principal Engineer Robin Shute, finished with a time of 11:25:083, beating last year's Tesla P90D by 20 seconds.

Production of the FF 91 is planned for 2018, and we will see whether the company will stick with that schedule. The $180,000 priced electric car can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.39 seconds and comes with many interesting features like facial recognition technology, NASA-inspired zero gravity seats, and of course - the FF 91 can park itself.

The company also stated that they would invest $1B in the State of Nevada over the next few years which is where the manufacturing facility is located.
