Automotive suppliers account for 80% of the parts and components that go into cars. They are also a major source of technological innovation. Right now, they face a lot of financial pressures and economic uncertainty. But if just a few things fall into place, the future could look a lot more optimistic.

Ridealong with Faraday Future’s CEO – CES 2020

January 15th, 2020 at 3:26pm

SPECIAL GUEST: Carsten Breitfeld, CEO, Faraday Future

After wrapping up our scheduled interviews with Faraday Future CEO, Carsten Breitfeld, he asked us if we’d like to go for a ride in the all-electric FF91. With no other obligations at the time, we took him up on the offer. The crew slapped some microphones on and set the camera to record. We ask him all kinds of questions and at some point we think Mr. Breitfeld forgot the camera was on. It turned into a pretty candid conversation, including what it was like moving from a traditional OEM (BMW) to a startup (Faraday Future).
