Faraday Future, a company dedicated to building electric vehicles but often stymied by cash problems, has apparently answered one its biggest questions: where its cars of the future will be built. The company has acquired a 55-year-old former Pirelli factory in Hanford, California, around 200 miles north of Los Angeles.
It’s a victory for Faraday, which has seen its share of ups and downs. For every 1,000-horsepower concept car shown on stage, there have been problems getting the cars to self-park. For all the Tesla employees Faraday has poached, the company has yet to produce an actual, mass-produced car.
