After Jia Yueting's dream of building a car hit the wall, only the last straw of FaradayFuture was left. Fortunately, this time, FF finally came to the forefront.
At 11:00 on August 28, US Western time, a ceremony was held at the Hanford factory in the United States to celebrate the first pre-production vehicle. It is understood that About 200 people from the management and core engineering team, including Jia Yueting, participated in the internal celebration. Although under the traditional practice of mature car companies, before the model mass production, will not be
Twists and turns of FF91
As the first mass production vehicle of FF, FF91 was last year's 1 moon phase CES exhibition in North America. Although the FF91 has some advantages in terms of technical parameters compared with the products launched by the start-up electric vehicle companies outside the current non-Tesla model, the development of FF is not smooth. Because of its founder Jia Yueting's financial problems, FF has also fallen into a financial crisis, in the last year has been exploding the core staff turnover, default supplier payments and other issues. The FF's predicament was eased by the admission of HK$6.7 billion to Evergrande and the completion of the first round of financing of US$2 billion this year.
It is understood that in the celebration ceremony, the FF specifically recognized from the production and manufacturing, product development and VLE, and other three major departments
In order to cope with the next mass production, FF is already building up talents for the future. Following the layoffs of more than 4,000 workers a few months ago, FF set up a recruitment team for Tesla, which has successfully recruited several key Tesla personnel, including a core Tesla executive, to provide talent protection for the final production of the FF91.
At the same time, the FF will be based in Hanford.
It is reported that FF recruits 20 to 25 technicians in each group for 40 hours of team building, decision-making, problem solving and leadership skills training to meet the needs of advanced manufacturing base. After that, workers will have further training in manufacturing jobs at Hanford plant. According to local media in Hanford City, the FF plant will provide more than 1000 jobs to the city.
10 years, 5 million planning needs refinement
According to the official plan, FF's first mass production vehicle FF91 will be launched at the Hanford plant, and the Guangzhou Nansha plant will provide capacity guarantee for FF's localized production in China and subsequent product manufacturing. At present, FF promotes two manufacturing projects simultaneously in Hanford, California and Nansha, Guangzhou.
American factory mass production advances, the industry is also very concerned about the FF domestic time node. After Evergrande took over, both the latter and its affiliated companies in China changed their names to Evergrande Faraday. For example, FF affiliate Ruitchi smart car (Guangzhou) co., Ltd
In mid-August, Evergrande Faraday Future Intelligent Automobile (China) Group officially unveiled in Guangzhou Evergrande Center. Peng Jianjun, chairman of the Faraday Group of Evergrande, said at the opening ceremony that Evergrande Faraday China Group will be fully responsible for Faraday's future technology research and development and all production and management in China.
According to him, Evergrande Faraday China has a clear quantitative goal for its future planning: the company plans to build five major R&D and production bases nationwide. Ten years later, its annual production capacity is planned to reach 5 million vehicles, and a series of multi-model products, such as FF91, FF81, are geared to the global market, covering high-end, middle-end and entry-level cities. The field.
However, the new energy automobile is a very big industry affected and volatile by the policy, any policy adjustment, will cause the industry fluctuation or even shuffle. Evergrande Faraday's future
