A California Startup Claims It’s Built the World’s Fastest Electric Vehicle

A California startup presents what it claims to be the fastest fully electric vehicle on the planet.

Faraday Future revealed its FF91 self-driving electric sports car at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

A prerecorded video shows it go from zero to 60 miles per hour in 2.

39 seconds, beating Tesla's Model S by more than a tenth of a second.

Faraday Future hopes to release it by 2018.

And if you think you want to buy one, you better be ready to dish out the $5000 deposit.

Just be sure to do your research.

The company has faced financial trouble in recent months, and during a demonstration of the vehicle's self-parking ability, the car failed to move.

Ok, uh, it seems like it's a little bit uh.

The official price of the car has not yet been released, but the deposit is refundable.
