The new source is hinting that the company may miss a shipping deadline, MailOnline reported. The new development is another one in a long list of bad news for the new company. Just a few days ago we learned Faraday Future had halted the construction of its Las Vegas factory.
The reason was a lack of financial backing and resources. The factory would have reportedly cost a $1 billion. so as of now Faraday Future does not have anywhere to mass produce its first car before releasing them into the market. The construction of the factory began back in April 2016 and at the time the Governer of Nevada Brian Sandoval had called it a new beginning. However Automotive News reported, Faraday Future is behind on a $21 million construction payment.
The new report was first issued by the Financial Times. The media agency states a former Faraday Future employee has said meeting the 2017 timeline is ‘not possible’ for the company.
