Electric Faraday Future will compete with Tesla in the race Pikes Peak Source:

Pikes Peak International Hill Climb — an annual competition where participants compete in speed uphill. Last year's race was a landmark for Tesla Model S, which set a record among the cars in its class, reaching the finish line in 11 minutes, 48 seconds. This year the champion will compete with the machine of Faraday Future FF 91.

Pikes Peak is in Colorado (USA), her height is about 4 thousand meters. Cars with internal combustion engines have some difficulties while climbing to the top, but electric cars have no such problem, so the machines with electric motors, often take part in this competition.

Faraday Future FF 91 was first introduced to the public in January 2017. Developers cars said that this AWD crossover is equipped with a powerful motor of 1050 horsepower, accelerates to one hundred kilometers per hour in two seconds and can travel without recharging of about 700 kilometers. However, the car is still in development. Mass production are going to start only in 2018, so the cars in the race clearly could spring a surprise, because the Tesla Model S — the production car, which has long been run in and tested, can not be said about FF 91.

The Race will take place in July 2017.
