Faraday Future has unveiled a new feature in its FF91 electric vehicle: a 27-inch rear seat screen with video conferencing function.
Even though it was a project that immediately fascinated me, I never wrote much about Faraday Future. Its "hybrid" nature, halfway between a frontier idea and a product ready to end up in dealerships, has always kept me in suspense. But now things are finally starting to move faster, and FF's electric car is about to make its entrance.
Company is expected to strike a deal with Property Solutions Acquisition Corp to get the financing needed to bring its FF91 electric car into production. The FF91 is an ultra luxury vehicle. It is a sort of hyper-compact limousine, in the dimensions of a large sedan. Much of the user experience of this Faraday Future car is built around the back seat, and now the company has revealed that it will be equipped with a huge screen, and mobile video conferencing functions.
From the press release
California-based global shared smart mobility ecosystem company Faraday Future announced today that its FF91 luxury electric will now have additional passenger-focused features. Rear seat passengers in the FF 91 will activate the exclusive 27-inch Rear Passenger Display (RSD) with a voice command, and will also have the ability to conduct video conferences inside the vehicle during the journey. “
