Faraday Future Steers into 1M-SF Central Valley Production Facility
Torrance, CA-based Faraday Future signed a lease on a new one-million-square-foot manufacturing facility in Hanford, CA. Last week, more than 300 Faraday Future employees and supporters voluntarily drove from Los Angeles to Hanford to begin the process of site clean-up, and embrace the company’s new manufacturing home.
The production facility, which is strategically located between the country’s two largest EV markets, Los Angeles and Silicon Valley, is moving forward with site preparations, including planning, refurbishment, and permitting. Once the current tenants move out in late November, Faraday Future expects significant movement to ramp-up on site in early 2018.
The facility, which will employ up to 1,300 workers, marks another significant step forward for the company in delivering its first production vehicle, FF 91, to market by the end of 2018.
