Faraday Future's FF 91 has accrued more than 64,000 orders since the model was revealed two days ago.
The electric car maker's long campaign of previews seems to have paid off, as the car mimics the runaway success of the Tesla Model 3, albeit to a lesser degree - the Tesla accrued nearly 400,000 orders in the weeks following its reveal.
This does not necessarily mean that Faraday Future has secured over $320million (around £260million) in $5000 deposits; Jalopnik received communication from Faraday Future that only priority spots on the waiting list require a deposit, and the site explained that users are able to make more than one non-priority reservation. Faraday Future has not stated how many orders are paid, high-priority ones.
Nevertheless, Faraday Future is only currently accepting orders from the US, Canada and China, so this figure may rise once European and other areas of orders open.
The FF 91, which was revealed earlier this week at the Consumer Electronics Show, is on course to be the quickest accelerating car on sale with a 0-60mph time of 2.39sec, which would beat the current record-holder, the Tesla Model S P100D, by 0.01sec.
The all-electric four-door SUV was revealed last night at a build-up event for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), with reservations being taken now before production begins in 2018.
The car makes use of a multi-motor set-up to enable real-time torque vectoring to the rear wheels. This technology boosts traction and allows for rear-wheel steering. So far, the only output revealed for the drivetrain is peak power, at 1050bhp.
The FF 91 is powered by a 130kWh battery and uses Faraday Future's patented FF Echelon Inverter, which it says can transform more energy while using less space. The car can gain 500 miles worth of charge per hour and comes with a home charger that can fill the battery to 50% in less than 4.5 hours at 240V. Faraday Future says it predicts the car will offer a range of more than 435 miles on New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) tests.
The FF 91 is 5250mm long and 2283mm wide - 4mm longer and 383mm wider than a Mercedes-Benz S-Class - and 1589mm tall, which is 9mm shorter than a BMW X1. It features four automatically opening passenger doors that use sensors to prevent them from hitting surrounding obstacles.
