A Car of Concepts
Advanced design and extreme technology geared to serve the driver. Glimpse into the future of pure, connected driving.
Unveiled at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the Faraday Future FFZERO1 Concept is an amplified exhibition of the same design elements we are developing in our production vehicles, intensified to match FFZERO1’s high-performance engineering. It is more than a concept car—it is a car of concepts.
A key element of FFZERO1 user experience (UX) is the vehicle’s user interface (UI), which displays important information attractively, unobtrusively, and preemptively for greater driver safety. The UI visualizes velocity and the flow of data both to and from the vehicle in an intuitive, organic way.
The driver's smartphone can be connected directly into the car, allowing for real-time data visualization and interaction. Used separately, the smartphone app enables remote setup, customized vehicle configurations, and adjustable power outputs.
Sculpted Around You
Our goal was to build a car with a sixth sense for its driver’s needs—an advanced vehicle that offers thorough personalization, seamless implementation of vehicle configurations, and effortless access to real-time data.

- ADVANCED ERGONOMICS
- UNIQUE MATERIALS
Zero Gravity Driving Position
Inspired by NASA zero gravity design, the driver’s seat allows for a true sense of weightlessness. Rising from the exposed carbon fiber vehicle structure itself, the seat drastically reduces the stress on the driver’s body at high speeds.
Every element of this vehicle has been sculpted around the driver’s form. This includes the signature asymmetric instrument panel that runs seamlessly into the halo safety structure.
Highlighting the contrast between dark and light, matte and high gloss, and smooth and three dimensional textures, the interior blends holistically with elements of the exterior to create a strikingly clean, elegant, and pure way of conveying confident power.
A Dynamic Foundation
Variable Platform Architecture (VPA)
We engineered our powertrain from the ground up to support a varied fleet of vehicles. The result was the Variable Platform Architecture (VPA) — a powerful, adaptive framework that features a modular battery structure.
Sculpted by aerodynamics for driving performance and efficiency, the smooth, flowing surfaces of the FFZERO1 morph from one unique element to another, creating volumes that tightly embrace the driver.
- AERODYNAMIC TAILFIN
- AERO TUNNELS
- CARBON FIBER SHELL
Aerodynamic Integrated Tailfin
This angular structure provides directional stability and enhanced aerodynamics, while doubling as a digital canvas to display vehicle charge level, driver name, and track position.
Twin tunnels course through the heart of the vehicle, allowing air to flow through the body. This unique design reduces drag, improves power efficiency, increases top speeds, and helps cool the battery and motor surfaces.
Carbon Fiber Shell
The lightweight composite carapace minimizes drag and maximizes energy efficiency, while its exceptional structural integrity helps protect the driver.
