Ultra-luxury electric vehicle maker Faraday Future completed a 2,270 mi. road test of its FF 91 model as the company prepares for production.

The test along the historic U.S. Route 66 gathered data from real-world conditions and user behaviors, stretching from Chicago, Illinois to Santa Monica, California.

“This testing journey along historic Route 66 allowed us to put FF 91 through many diverse environments and conditions found only in the central and southwest portions of the U.S. and allowed us to capture real-world data on FF 91,” said FF Global CEO Dr. Carsten Breitfeld. “FF’s overall testing and validation strategy will ensure best-in-market performance, safety, and user confidence, and to make sure the battery, electric propulsion, chassis, suspension, and other vehicle systems perform under these harsh conditions, while also ensuring a smooth and comfortable and connected experience with the driver and passengers in the FF 91.”

The company said the test, which included evaluations of the battery and propulsion components, validated the FF 91's production timeline to launch in 2022.

The FF 91 is equipped with interior cameras and microphones to support videoconferencing through a Rear Seat Display. The vehicle features a 130 kWh battery pack.

FF was listed on NASDAQ last month as FFIE.
