Faraday Future is already prepping for its second EV factory

by John_A

Faraday Future hasn’t even released its first vehicle yet, and it’s already thinking about expansion. Vallejo’s city council has approved the electric car maker’s acquisition of 157 acres of land on Mare Island to establish both its second factory as well as an experience center for test drives and pickups. It’s uncertain just why FF believes it needs the extra manufacturing capacity so soon, but the city isn’t likely to second-guess the move. Vallejo declared bankruptcy back in 2008, and it hasn’t been in the greatest of financial health since — an EV company setting up shop would be a gift. It’s still something of a gamble for the town, but it beats watching helplessly as a rival Bay Area city (Fremont) gets Tesla’s attention.
