After first showing off a wild 1000 hp electric race car concept at this year’s CES, electric vehicle startup Faraday Future promised its next car would be the production-ready SUV-like thing.
We know next to nothing about the vehicle itself, but Faraday Future has begun releasing extremely brief teasers.
The latest one, shown in this video, is just as short as the last one, and instead of giving us any answers, and it actually raises more questions.
Specifically, what’s the deal with the concept’s wheels? And you barely get to see any of the vehicle and instead mostly see wheels. But unlike the wheels on most test cars, these are camouflaged.
Which is weird. If they are just wheels, what is there to hide? Then there is the statement Who said don’t reinvent the wheel? Normally, we would assume it was the reference to the vehicle being electric and likely offering some sort of the self-driving mode.
But in the teaser that’s so focused on camouflaged wheels, it seems more likely that a phrase is literal. Well, what we can’t figure out, though, is what’s so special about these wheels. Could Faraday Future have developed dampers that recover energy from a road like Audi is working on?
Possibly, and that wouldn’t require the wheels themselves to be any different. And could these wheels be designed to suck air through them to better cool the brakes? And again, it’s possible, and it wouldn’t be groundbreaking. BMW did the same thing years ago.
