Getting Carsten Breitfeld and Sandy Munro together to talk about cars and EV technology is a wonderful thing. Both of these guys have probably forgotten more about building cars than most of us will ever know.
In the video above Sandy interviews Breitfeld, the CEO of Faraday Future for nearly an hour, and they initially cover topics from Breitfeld's days at BMW where he was responsible for bringing the i8 to production to co-founding the EV startup Byton. However, the bulk of the conversation was about Breitfelds latest endeavor, taking over as CEO of Faraday Future.
I had the opportunity to chat with Breitfeld at CES in 2020 and also scored a ride up and down the Las Vegas Strip in an FF91. It's an extremely comfortable and luxurious car, as it should be for its $225,000 price. As a matter of fact, Breitfeld tells Sandy that he sees the FF91's competition as not Tesla or Lucid Motors, but Mercedes-Benz Maybach, Rolls Royce, and Bently.
