EV maker Faraday Future appoints new global CEO to boost FF 91 production

Asian Tech Press (Nov 29) -- California-based EV startup Faraday Future (NASDAQ:FFIE) on Monday appointed a new global CEO to boost production of its flagship FF 91 electric sedan.

Faraday Future said in a statement that the company's board of directors has appointed FF China CEO Xuefeng Chen to replace Carsten Breitfeld as global CEO.

Chen has worked in the automotive industry for nearly 20 years, and served at Ford Motor Co.'s Chinese joint venture Changan Ford, Mazda Motor Co.'s Chinese joint venture Changan Mazda, Ford's Asia Pacific Product Development Centre and Jaguar Land Rover Automotive PLC's Chinese joint venture Chery Jaguar Land Rover before joining Faraday Future.

As global CEO, Chen's top priority is to bring the FF 91 Futurist to market, delivering on its promise to shareholders, investors, global partners, users and employees, the electric car startup said.

Faraday Future said in an SEC filing last week that the first deliveries of its FF 91 electric car are "uncertain" and "not expected to occur in 2022." Previously, the electric car maker had scheduled deliveries of the car for the end of this year.
