- Detroit/ Beijing: China-backed electric vehicle startup Faraday scales back US plans

Electric luxury car startup Faraday Future, one of several Chinese- funded companies efforts are directed at Elon Musk’s Tesla Inc, and it is back on plans to build vehicles in the United States, the company’s public officials said.

Faraday, an affiliate of Beijing-based Leshi Internet Information and Technology Corp, has also reduced its product plan portfolio from seven to two vehicles, reported. The Faraday will build a smaller auto assembly facility (around 650,000 SQ.FT) in North Las Vegas, Nevada starting late 2017, which originally it was planned to take up 3 M square feet. In December of 2015 Faraday announced plans to built its first auto factory in Nevada, with an annual capacity of 150,000 with an investment of $1.3 billion and planed to open in late 2017. Faraday’s finance team prepared the documents for Chinese investors in early 2016 that previously made public show the company was pitching a $1 billion. Rumors said, future production of most Faraday vehicles, Chinese sister brand LeSee, likely be centered in China’s Zhejiang province, and may open in 2019.
