Dissecting the new EVs on the block. Faraday Future and Lucid have several things in common. Both companies employ several of Tesla’s former employees and both of their cars use similar technology and chassis design as Tesla. In our First Ride, we noted that both vehicles feature an electric motor at each axle and a lithium-ion battery pack between them. The FF 91 features a flat battery pack under the floor – much like the Tesla Model X crossover and the Tesla Model S sedan, while the Air features a stacked battery pack under the center console. But in terms of styling, they’re worlds apart. The FF 91 more closely resembles a crossover in profile, while the Air is undoubtedly a sedan. Despite these discrepancies, we want to know which one you think is the better looker. Check out the styling differences between the Faraday Future FF 91 and Lucid Air below and tell us what you think. Up front, the FF 91 features a blunt fascia with a low center air intake flanked by two higher air intakes on each side. Those narrow slits sit below the slim LED headlights with LED accent lighting that spans the full width of the front and curves up at the sides. A propitiatory periscope with the lidar scanner sticks out of the hood that features a blacked out center section. In comparison, the Air features LED headlights that frame a slim front grille. The lower fascia has a low oval-shaped center air intake flanked by a set of vertical LED accent lights. The hood is relatively flat with the exception of two heat extractor vents above the headlights. Along the side, both cars sport short hoods due to the lack of a combustion engine, which contributes to more interior space. The Faraday Future crossover uses rearview cameras mounted on slim stalks, while the Lucid sedan integrates its cameras into traditional side mirror housings. While both cars have a similar creased lower body line that bows up toward the B-pillar area, the FF 91 features the automaker’s angled “FF” emblem pattern along the lower flanks. Both cars’ rear quarter windows are aft of the rear door. Not only does the FF 91’s roof reach farther back than that of the Air, its blacked out upper D-pillar gives it a floating roof look. Around back, the FF 91’s rear glass slopes back into a small integrated duck bill spoiler above the full-width LED taillights in the automaker’s emblem pattern. There is also an integrated roof spoiler just above the rear window. The rear fascia mimics the front fascia with a lower center intake flanked by two higher air intakes at the corners. In contrast, the Lucid Air sedan’s sloped rear glass is finished off with a short rear deck lid. With the hinges above the rear glass, the Air is technically a liftback. The LED taillights span the width of the rear hatch opening. We’d love to compare interior styling, but Faraday Future has yet to release images of the FF 91’s cabin. Which startup EV automaker’s design language do you prefer, the Faraday Future FF 91 crossover or the Lucid Air sedan? Share your thoughts in the comments below. Last week, we compared the 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack to the Subaru Outback. There were proponents of both cars. Commenters in the Volkswagen camp include smartymarty1965, who said, “Based on looks alone, I would pick Volkswagen…” And primetractor agreed saying, “Unfortunately, Subaru hasn’t made an attractive car since the ’90s, and there is no sign of that changing.” Subaru proponents like Skynet6 said, “I vote for the Subaru, all of Volkswagen’s current offerings just look dull and boring to me. The Subaru is no head turner but it isn’t the bland, drive-right-past-you-without-even-noticing Volkswagen.” Big Black Rock agreed, saying, “Subaru all the way in terms of looks…I know what looks good because I am not a brand snob.”
