“Receiving this COO is an incredibly important step in our production roadmap for our flagship FF 91 and it's our second recent major milestone at the plant,” said FF Vice President of Manufacturing, Matt Tall. “We’re laser focused on meeting our production milestones and getting the Hanford manufacturing plant equipped to launch the FF 91 by July 2022.”

The first COO opens the gates for FF employees to build additional pre-production vehicles for final testing and validation before production officially begins. Previously, only construction-related resources and personnel were able to work out of the facility. The Hanford plant will be a state-of-the-art facility that uses leading-edge automated production processes and highly skilled craftsmanship to rival the top luxury automakers of the world. FF is also ramping up hiring at the plant, as well as across more functions such as engineering, supply chain, design, marketing, brand, sales and other areas.

In October, FF laid out seven production milestones leading up to SOP in summer 2022. Now, after receiving the first COO, FF has five remaining production milestones:

  • Milestone #3: Start foundation construction for all remaining production areas including body, propulsion, warehouse and vehicle assembly.
  • Milestone #4: Pre-production builds for final engineering validation and certification vehicles.
  • Milestone #5: Start all major mechanical electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems to support equipment installation.
  • Milestone #6: Complete construction and equipment installation in final vehicle manufacturing areas.
  • Final Milestone: SOP - summer 2022.
