The nearly 70,000 reservation number that the company is talking about includes people who have made free registration as well as others who have registered with deposit money. The company’s tweet that boasts about overwhelming from worldwide customers does not reveal the actual number of people who did free and paid registration.
Faraday Future will give priority access to people who paid $5,000 deposit amount for registration over the ones who have done free registration. Moreover, customers who have done paid registration will also have a chance to purchase FF 91’s limited edition that is named as ‘Alliance.’
Customers who have done free registration do not need to commit anything. Speculations have it that the huge number of customers have registered mainly includes people who have free reservation. However, it is interesting to note that the tech startup has managed to find at least a few customers who have opted for paid registration.
At the launch event CES 2017, Faraday Future had revealed a plenty of information on FF 91 electric car that is built to take on rivals like Tesla Model S and Model X. Rumors have it that the electric car will cost around $150K to $200K
