The summit was attended by world-class suppliers such as Bosch, LG Chem, Fuji industrial technology Miyazu, laser radar supplier Velodyne, British automotive engineering company Ricardo Ricardo and Fanuc, one of the world's largest industrial robot manufacturers.
FF founder Jia Yueting at the supplier summit said: FF 91 is not just an electric car, it is a new species, but also a third Internet space.
Jiayue Ting said FF could not design and manufacture a product like the FF 91 without the cooperation of so many top suppliers. The involvement of these vendors will help FF promote product development and provide a high level of product experience.
FF executives fully introduced FF's global strategy, vision, business layout and project progress to suppliers and fully opened its R & D center during the vendor summit to arrange face-to-face seminars for multiple business units and suppliers.
Pablo Ucar, Vice President, FF Supply Chain, said: "The goal of our event was to get suppliers reshaped their confidence in our production plans and funding, and we've achieved that from the feedback we received. "
Pablo Ucar said the FF 91 is a revolutionary and very complex product with more than 2000 parts and components, so partnering with suppliers is crucial to achieving the goal of delivering FF 91 successfully by the end of 2018. "
After the FF 91, its first model, unveiled CES in 2017, FF plans to deliver the first FF 91 at its plant in Hanford, California.
At the meeting, the company also shared the latest progress of the recent Hanford factory project delivered by FF 91 and said that the plant will be progressively launched at the end of the quarter.
Dag Reckhorn, FF Senior Vice President, Global Manufacturing, said: "The Hanford plant project is now on schedule and thanks Hanford for its support and we are now in the design and licensing phase and ready for a full hiring job. "
According to Dag Reckhorn, as of February 1, the original tenants in the factory have all been moved out and FF will finish construction and equipment related work by the end of the quarter. "We are still fully committed to deliver FF91 by the end of the year as originally planned.
