  1. Faraday Future (FF) announced that the first complete body-in-white (BiW) for the FF 91, an all-purpose fully connected luxury EV, has successfully initiated full-vehicle assembly following its arrival at the new FF Hanford factory two days ahead of schedule.

    FF Tooling and Equipment Manager for Body-in-White, Hector Padilla, helps oversee this entire process on site and reports, "It is honestly inspiring to see how hard we as a team are working to achieve FF 91. And it is not that we must push people to work, but everyone is more and more eager to do so as they see the complete car become a reality."

    Several cutting-edge manufacturing technologies are used on FF 91 BiW such as:

    1,500+ self-piercing rivets for joining the aluminum body structure
    Among the several job-specific body-joining technologies: Aluminum resistant spot welding, cold metal transfer (CMT) welding
    Flowform screw technology allowing an innovative uni-directional joining process not possible with conventional sheetmetal joining methods
    Among first applications of Flexweld resistance element welding (REW) on "Class A" panels that facilitates aluminum-to-steel welding "“ a particular challenge
    Earliest use of wireless "transducerised" torque tools for all appropriate safety-critical points (a great help in comprehensive error-proofing, total process connectivity/traceability, and precision of assembly).

    Senior VP of Manufacturing for FF, Dag Reckhorn, said, "There is no question that this team and our suppliers have faced many significant challenges in getting FF 91 to this point, and even slightly ahead of schedule. This is really a huge accomplishment over these past two years. All while focusing on the true luxury and quality of the final product. Our constant focus on teamwork, avoiding functional "˜silos', has paid off."

    FF Founder and Global CEO, YT Jia, said, "This is one of many big milestones ahead for FF as we enter the final stage in introducing "˜our new species', the FF 91 flagship. In the truest FF spirit, our teams and global partners have gone above and beyond to get to this important phase ahead of schedule."

    "Everything we do relies on our proven UP2U (User Planning To User) approach. FF will redefine the meaning of customisation at a whole new in-depth, high-end, and personalised level "“ each user in the near future will have the opportunity to provide input and witness the creation of their own personal FF 91 along the bespoke production line at FF Hanford."
