Faraday Future Selects NVIDIA DRIVE Orin to Power Flagship FF 91 Luxury EV for Next-Generation Autonomous Driving
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Faraday Future (“FF”), a California-based global shared intelligent mobility ecosystem company, announced today that it is deploying the NVIDIA Drive Orin platform in its flagship ultra-luxury FF 91 electric vehicle.
Moving to this next-generation DRIVE Orin system-on-a-chip (SoC) reflects the automaker’s close collaboration efforts and seamless ability to leverage the continuous improvements and performance leaps across generations of the NVIDIA DRIVE platform. FF 91 plans to achieve advanced highway autonomous driving capabilities and advanced parking and summon features when it goes on sale in 2022.
“FF aims to deliver the latest and most advanced computing capabilities on the FF 91. We’ve selected the NVIDIA DRIVE Orin with its seamless upgrade path for our autonomous driving system,” said Hong Rao, Vice President, I.A.I at FF. “NVIDIA’s world-renowned expertise in AI and autonomy are crucial for our product and technology architecture. The reliability of their product and high quality of support will further advance FF 91’s capabilities in autonomous driving as we ramp up to the launch.”
The leading choice for automakers’ 2022 production timelines, NVIDIA DRIVE Orin contains 21 billion transistors and integrates the NVIDIA Ampere GPU architecture, 12 Cortex-A78 ARM 64CPUs, along with deep learning and computer vision accelerators. As a result, NVIDIA DRIVE Orin can deliver 254 trillion operations per second of performance.
With this high-performance, energy-efficient compute capability, FF will target more advanced autonomous driving and parking features on its future FF 81 and FF 71 vehicles, which are expected to be available in 2023 and 2024, respectively, and also powered by NVIDIA DRIVE Orin.
FF 91 delivers a unique mobility experience with its product DNA, combining extreme technology and a complete ecosystem to deliver the ultimate user-experience. With an industry-leading 1,050 horsepower, the largest battery pack of 130 kWh equipped with submerged liquid battery cooling technology, 0-60 in less than 2.4 seconds, and a unique rear compartment intelligent internet system, FF 91 delivers internet connectivity at high speed via its super mobile AP.
The FF 91 also achieves the industry’s largest reclining angle of 60 degrees with its zero-gravity rear seats, and provides a revolutionary user experience, designed to create a mobile, intelligent, and luxurious third connected living space and user mobility ecosystem platform.
FF is currently preparing to merge with Property Solutions Acquisition Corp. (“PSAC”) (NASDAQ: PSAC), a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC). The previously announced merger agreement, expected to close in the second quarter of 2021, will result in the combined company listing on the Nasdaq Stock Market under the new ticker symbol “FFIE”. FF’s flagship electric vehicle – FF 91 – is planned to be launched within 12 months of the closing of the merger.
