Dedicated to the development of fully-electric vehicles, Faraday Future has revealed a new battery-powered concept car at the CES technology show in Las Vegas.

With the future in mind, the FFZero1 features technology such as a smartphone dock on the steering wheel and the ability to project information over the driver's view – safely.

The firm’s research chief also formerly worked as an engineer for Tesla – the established electric saloon car company.

The FFZero1 set to launch in 2018 and will be built in a factory near Las Vegas, in which Faraday Future is investing more than £679m – with the hope to employ more than 4,500 workers.

Reported to develop 1,000bhp, the FFZero1 is rumoured to have the ability of reaching 200mph, accelerating from 0-60mph in less than three seconds.

But Faraday Future will have some tough competition as BMW, VW and Chevrolet plan to unveil electric car concepts at the CES show over the coming days.
