Is Faraday Future a Threat to Tesla?

Is Faraday Future a Threat to Tesla?

If Back to the Future was a movie coming out this year rather than in the 1980s, what could substitute the hoverboard today? Not literally, of course! After all, hoverboards are inimitable! But still, what is the innovation that has sparked both excitement and suspicion in present days? Something that used to seem so far away and is yet so close?

The first big thing that comes to my mind is electric vehicles! Next, I find myself speculating about what possibly could play a role of a “hoverboard” today.

What is Faraday Future?

Faraday Future is a rather new disrupter in the traditional automakers’ markets whose goal is to create premium electric vehicles with sleek design and technology of latest fashion. It is my equivalent of the hoverboard not because it’s so spectacular and new, but because it adds up a dose of excitement to what we have already seen out there in terms of gadgets and design. Skateboards were new, but they weren’t levitating at that time yet, right? To some, seeing yet another player on the market might seem a rather late move or the last hope to catch the wave of EVs.

Brave, yet hopeless.

So many automakers were once talking about EVs that this concept did not stand out with anything in particular, apart from the smartphone dock in the steering wheel (which may not even pass safety regulations).

Is it possible for Faraday Future to catch up with Tesla?

To this, I would ask: Are they even competing? Faraday Future claims to be a growing company whose goal is to develop premium highly connected vehicles. And if you have been following Elon Musk and his Master Plan, you would know that Tesla Motors is already on the way to surpassing the phase of competing on the luxury sports car market.

At CES 2016, Nick Sampson, at that time the senior vice president at Faraday, claimed the first model of FFZERO1 would be in production in 2018. In 2018, however, Tesla had already released model X, which sold 57,327 units through September 2018 in the US market. In 2019, it also announced the release of model Y. While Fraday went through bankruptcy in 2017, and only in November 2019 “relaunched its first production EV, the FF 91”. Therefore, if we ever considered FF as Tesla’s competitor, it started out late and with a small portfolio, which currently is easily being outcompeted by Tesla’s rapid development.

Is it truthful to consumers producing both sports electric vehicles and pick-up trucks?

Would people driving pickups want features such as full automation and self-driving? Or will they stick to the manly image that drives women insane at the sight of a man in an old-fashioned pick-up? A user-centric company should have consumer attitudes and habits in mind not only when it comes to the design and interface of the vehicle, but the vehicle format and functionalities as well.

The image that Faraday Future is building for their brand speaks to drivers who fancy high-tech and enjoy playing with gadgets. If you are to devote to an EV, would show-off design be the reason that leads you to the right brand? Maybe, if you need another status symbol in your life. Tesla, on the other hand, is a brand with a mission. A brand that aims to change the world for the better. After all, there is a reason why the hoverboard is not a thing anymore today, right?

Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice. I'll recommend this great Company to anyone that is thinking to relocate a vehicle. Thanks Corsia logistics for your honesty and professionalism!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Excellent Organization

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
