Startup Update: Faraday Future

Faraday Future hasn’t made a lot of noise since it’s launch at CES.

However, they just applied for three autonomous vehicle manufacturer license plates.

The Detroit News has the story:

The Michigan plate application is a significant milestone for the company, which made its public debut in January at the CES technology trade show in Las Vegas. It’s backed by Chinese billionaire Jia Yueting and has about 700 workers at a former Nissan sales office near Los Angeles.

Faraday Future has been testing “mules” — test cars used to analyze powertrain and chassis systems before full prototype vehicles are developed — for about a year now. The company told The News it’s tested in its home state of California, as well as Michigan and other locations that it declined to reveal.

There is also this:

Faraday Future has no working prototype car, and a representative told The News that it can’t confirm a timeline for introducing one.

Keep your eyes peeled.
