Tesla competitor will use same batteries as Chevrolet

Faraday Future has announced a partnership with LG Chem to supply the batteries for its electric vehicle.

LG Chem also supplies the lithium-ion batteries used in the Chevy Bolt.

The companies said the partnership represents a joint commitment to collaborate on the development of electric vehicle battery technology, resulting in the world’s highest energy density for a production automotive battery.

Faraday Future said these cells will be incorporated into its VPA platform, the company’s universal scalable modular battery structure, which will form part of the company’s future product portfolio.

Not much else is known about Faraday Future’s first electric vehicle, but earlier this year it unveiled a concept car called the FFZER01 – which promises to do 0-100km/h in 3 seconds and have a top speed of over 320km/h.
