Faraday Future announced on Thursday that will partner with Meta System to become the supplier of on-board power management module products. FF 91 EV and the upcoming FF 81 vehicles will be equipped with Meta System’s onboard battery charger. The system will feature 15.2 kW AC charging capability.

“Meta System’s deep understanding in power conversion of electrified powertrain systems, combined with its technologically advanced products with higher efficiency and safety standards, will allow the FF 91 to offer industry-leading AC charging capabilities, giving our drivers more time to spend behind the wheel,” said Geng Niu, Global Senior Director, Powertrain, for Faraday Future.

The onboard power management products have already arrived at FF’s Hanford, Calif. plant on schedule, leading to the launch of the FF 91 in Q3 2022. With a focus on onboard charging, FF 91 will be outfitted with a fast, reliable system to ensure the vehicle is always ready for use. Meta System’s partnership will further enhance FF’s technical strength, product quality, and more.

“We are thrilled to work with FF and supply the FF 91 with our state-of-the-art electric propulsion technologies,” said Alessandro Ciccone, Sales Director from Meta System. “We are big proponents of green energy and are excited to help bring another electric vehicle to market and support the company to the way of the future.”

Earlier this week, Faraday Future announced the launch of its “Born in California, Global DNA” brand campaign showcasing the company’s global partners for its flagship vehicle, FF 91. The FF 91 is designed and built in California and is “on track” to be launched in Q3 2022.

Last week, the company filed a Form 12b-25 notifying the SEC that the Company is unable to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 within the prescribed time period, and does not expect to file it by the extended filing date pursuant to SEC Rule 12b-25, as a result of delays related to internal investigation work and remediation efforts.

The California-based company recently announced that the Nasdaq Stock Market has accepted its plan to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), which permits the continued listing of FF common stock and warrants on the Nasdaq Global Select Market. On February 23rd, the company unveiled the first production-intent FF 91 ultra-luxury EV remaining remains on schedule for the FF 91 start of production in Q3 2022.
