Faraday Future has struggled to amass the resources to build a car, but following a recent influx of cash, the company says it still plans to introduce its $300,000 electric luxury SUV by the end of 2018. The company says it will have a 378-mile range from a 130-kwh battery. It is slated to have a 1,050 horsepower motor to blast from 0-60 in 2.4 seconds. As an ultra-expensive, super-luxury SUV, the FF91 will be a niche vehicle.

It narrowly misses our timeframe of the next 18 months, but as an electric SUV from a company with a track record of building cars, the VW ID Crozz is worth mentioning. It will be the third car in VW’s upcoming worldwide electric-car lineup, and is due in the latter half of 2020 as a 2021 model. VW says it will have a range of 300 miles from an 83-kwh battery sitting under the floor and will use two electric motors, a 200-hp rear motor complemented by a 100-hp front motor to give the ID Crozz all-wheel drive. The technology in the ID Crozz may trickle down to the hotly anticipated ID Buzz electric Microbus concept.
