Faraday Future暂停建设10亿美元电动汽车

Kirsten Korosec 2017年07月13日

公司接受《财富》采访时表示,将寻找新厂址。

随着Faraday Future背后的支持者、中国亿万富豪贾跃亭的经济问题不断加剧,这家神秘的电动汽车公司已经终止了之前在内华达州斥资10亿美元建立工厂的高调计划。

上周,上海法院因贾跃亭未能偿还数家金融机构的贷款,冻结了这位中国传媒集团乐视生态的创始人的资产。

Faraday Future接受《财富》采访时表示,公司“短期内”将暂停在内华达州建立工厂,他们会寻找能够更快生产电动汽车的新厂址。公司之前计划在2018年推出全电动汽车FF91,预计一次充电的行驶路程为378英里。

在一份充满行业术语和承诺的声明中,Faraday Future表示,公司正在经历商业战略转型,“将公司定位为一家用户个人移动行业的领导者——这种汽车使用的模式,将重新构想用户移动的方式。”

Faraday Future本计划在拉斯维加斯北部900英亩的园区内建立一座占地300万平方英尺的工厂,建设费用中有3.35亿美元来自国家的激励政策。项目于2015年12月首次公布时,内华达州州长布莱恩·桑多瓦宣称,该工厂将在未来20年内给地区带来1.3万个直接和非直接岗位,产生7.6亿美元的税收和850亿美元的经济效益。

据报道,去年11月,由于资金不足,工厂项目已经缩减了规模。Faraday Future仍然拥有着这片900英亩的园区,并在声明中表示会继续建造工厂。

公司计划在接下来几周内披露更多有关新战略的细节。(财富中文网)

Secretive electric car company Faraday Future has ended plans to build a much-hyped $1 billion factory in Nevada as the financial problems of its backer, Chinese billionaire Jia Yueting, continue to escalate.

Last week, a Shanghai court froze the assets of Yueting, founder of Chinese media conglomerate LeEco, for missing loan payments to several financial institutions.

Faraday Future told Fortune that it decided to put the factory in Nevada on hold for "the near term" in favor of a new site that will provide a faster path to producing an electric vehicle. The company has previously said it plans to produce the FF91, an all-electric vehicle with an estimated 378 miles of range sometime in 2018.

In a statement filled with jargon and promises, Faraday Future said it was shifting its business strategy to "position the company as the leader in user-ship personal mobility—a vehicle usage model that reimagines the way users access mobility."

Faraday Future was supposed to build a 3-million square-foot factory on a 900-acre site in North Las Vegas—a deal that included a $335 million incentive package from the state. When the project was first announced in December 2015, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval boasted the factory would lead to more than 13,000 direct and indirect jobs in the region, and generate $760 million in tax revenue and $85 billion in economic impact over 20 years.

The factory project was reportedly scaled back in November due to a lack of funds. Faraday Future still owns the 900-acre factory site and said in a statement that it remains committed to the buildout.

The company plans to share more details about its new strategy in the coming weeks.
