The future of electric cars is about to heat up.
In a brief teaser posted to YouTube, Faraday Future shows of its new vehicle as it rounds corners and speeds along a test track. The car itself is covered in the kind of masking that many manufacturers use to hide the true look of new vehicles while they’re being tested in real-world conditions.
“Can’t hear the engine?” the video teases. “You’re not supposed to.”
That makes sense, of course, because the electric drivetrain of the car doesn’t require a combustion engine, and thereby creates a silent ride, just like that of current electric cars.
Faraday Future has yet to formally launch any product, and the vehicle you see in the video is expected to hit roads in 2017. The company, headquartered in California, showed off an all-electric race car concept called the FFZERO1 at CES earlier this year. The vehicle was claimed to produce 1,000 horsepower with a top speed of 200 mph, though the company hasn’t announced plans to put that car into production.
