In response to a query from the Sacramento Business Journal, Faraday Future e-mailed to say it is "actively working on establishing a global network of manufacturing facilities, beginning with the United States." For the moment the domestic choices appear to be California, Nevada, Louisiana, and Georgia.

Nevada looks to be swinging hard to get win the bid. In mid-August, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval told the Associated Press that he'd met Faraday Future representatives regarding "a factory in Southern Nevada." On top of that, his spokesperson said there are "ongoing discussions" between the electric car company and the Governor's Office of Economic Development, and North Las Vegas officials believe the facility being discussed could create 4,000 jobs. At least one member of the State Assembly has said he's ready to support an incentive package, and that an electric car factory in the south would help diversify the state economy and "certainly benefit the south as Tesla has benefited the north."

Yet talks are certainly ongoing with the three other states, too, it's just that those other states have been quiet about it. When asked about the situation, California declined to comment. Faraday spokesman Marcus Nelson has said that by the end of September we'll know where that factory will be built, but it turns out Faraday Future isn't totally secretive: Nelson hosted a cocktail and wine reception on behalf of the company in San Francisco this June, themed around the UN70 celebrations and a better world for all.

The all-electric that FF wants to build is almost as unknown as the possible factory location. We've got all of the details here, but if you don't want to click, then the important rumored numbers include a 98-kWh battery and 300 miles of range.
