– Continued Progress at Hanford Manufacturing Facility –
– Launch of Community Outreach and Jobs Fair for Hanford Hiring Program –
– Announcement of Munro & Associates as Co-Creation Partner –
– Additional Tier 1 Supplier Announcements –

Los Angeles, CA (May 13, 2022) - Faraday Future Intelligent Electric Inc. (NASDAQ: FFIE) ("FF”, “Faraday Future”, or “the Company"), a California-based global shared intelligent electric mobility ecosystem company, today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and full-year ended December 31, 2021. Results were delayed as a result of the previously disclosed Special Committee review.

“We made significant progress during the fourth quarter with several important milestones reached at our Hanford manufacturing plant and new Tier 1 supplier and partner agreements. In a challenging logistics and supply chain environment, we are working closely with our partners and remain on track for launch in Q3 2022,” said Carsten Breitfeld, Global CEO of Faraday Future.

Dr. Breitfeld continued, “After 2021 year-end we signed an agreement with Myoung Shin for FF 81 production in South Korea, securing our path to high volume production and cash flow breakeven. We also received our dealer license from the State of California, allowing us to sell our cars online nationally. We remain confident that we will launch the FF 91 in the third quarter of 2022, and when we do, we expect Faraday Future to redefine the state-of-the-art in intelligent, electrified mobility.”

Dr. Breitfeld added, “The Special Committee, made up of independent Board members, completed its previously announced review of past disclosures and allegations and submitted its findings and recommendations to the full Board. The Board accepted the findings, and implementation of remediation actions is well underway. On behalf of the entire management team, I want to thank the Special Committee, our financial and legal advisors, and my fellow Board members for their hard work and for their commitment to holding the Company to the highest standards of ethics and conduct. I also want to thank all of my fellow employees, our suppliers, and our investors for their support and confidence. I believe that this review and the changes we are making will help make us a better, stronger company.”

Faraday Future continues to make progress toward launch of the FF 91 in third quarter 2022 and toward its long-term business plan, making the following announcements during the fourth quarter:
Completed the installation of pilot equipment in the pre-production build area of its Hanford, California facility. The Hanford manufacturing facility is approximately 1.1 million square feet and, once it is built out, is expected to have the capacity to support production of 10,000 vehicles per year. Based on the current timeline, FF management anticipates production at the Hanford facility will commence in the third quarter of 2022.
Received its final Certificate of Occupancy (“CO”) for a dedicated area for pre-production manufacturing at the facility in Hanford, California. The CO allows FF to begin crucial construction activities, including the building of additional pre-production vehicles at the facility.
Started foundation construction for all remaining production areas in the Hanford facility, including body, propulsion, warehouse, and vehicle assembly. Interior foundation work in the production area is essentially complete, and major mechanical systems, including electrical and plumbing, are being installed.
Announced program with Munro & Associates, which will serve as an FF co-creation consultant and will assist with the production-readiness process of the FF 91 through comparative analysis and quality assessment.
Held a Community Day and Job Fair at the Hanford Civic Auditorium on November 3, 2021, and November 10, 2021, respectively.

Announced HSL Italia as Exterior Lighting Supplier. HSL Italia will work with the Company throughout the production process to ensure a premium and innovative exterior lighting display.

Subsequent to December 31, 2021, FF accomplished several major milestones and made a number of organizational changes:
Announced that Myoung Shin Co., Ltd., an automotive manufacturer headquartered in South Korea, has been contracted to manufacture Faraday Future’s second vehicle, the FF 81, with start of production scheduled for 2024.
Unveiled the first production-intent FF 91. This marks Faraday Future’s manufacturing Milestone #4, pre-production builds for final engineering validation and certification, now referred to as production-intent vehicles.
Received dealer and distributor license from the State of California, allowing national online sales.
Signed the lease for FF’s flagship store in Beverly Hills, California, and confirmed the design firm for the store. The initial term of the lease is 126 months, with two five-year tenant extension options. Further, FF announced the active search for a second flagship store in the U.S.
Appointed Susan Swenson as Executive Chairperson and Jordan Vogel as Lead Independent Director of the Board of Directors. FF’s Board of Directors consists of nine directors, five of whom are independent under applicable rules.
Announced that Mathias Hofmann became the new Head of Global Supply Chain after the retirement of Benedikt Hartmann effective February 25, 2022. Mathias comes to FF after a nearly 30-year career with BMW, where he served as a Vice President with global responsibilities in purchasing and plant management. He has worked on four continents, including China, and was most recently Plant Director in Brazil. He has extensive experience in both plant operations and direct and indirect purchasing.
Appointed Becky Roof as Interim Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and engaged an affiliate of AlixPartners to accelerate the implementation of Special Committee recommendations including, but not limited to, financial controls and material weakness remediation. Ms. Roof is a seasoned financial executive who has served in an interim CFO capacity at numerous public and private companies.
Completed additional investigation work of the Special Committee and implemented additional remediation actions as recommended by the Special Committee. The findings and remediation actions are summarized in our Form 10-K filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), and available on our website.
Announced 401 preorders as of March 31, 2022. Preorders are fully refundable, non-binding, paid deposits for the FF 91 Futurist Alliance Edition and/or the FF 91 Futurist vehicles available initially for sale to customers in the US and China. FF 91 Futurist Alliance Edition preorders require a $5,000 deposit for customers in the US and an RMB 50,000 deposit for customers in China. FF 91 Futurist preorders require a $1,500 deposit for customers in the US and an RMB 20,000 deposit for customers in China.
Marked Production Milestone #5 at its Hanford, California manufacturing facility, with the start of installation of all mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems to support equipment installation.

Operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2021, were $354 million compared to $65 million for the year ended December 31, 2020. The increase is primarily due to an increase in engineering, design, and testing (“ED&T”) services as the Company re-engaged suppliers and made significant purchases for ED&T services to progress the manufacturing of the FF 91; a significant increase in headcount and employee related expenses; a sublicensable license to use a platform from Geely Holding; an increase in professional services and legal expense; and a loss related to the abandonment of certain construction in progress FF 91 program assets, primarily vendor tooling, machinery, and equipment, due to the redesign of the related FF 91 components and implementation of FF’s cost reduction program.
Net loss was $517 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, compared to net loss of $147 million in the prior-year period. The change in net loss is attributable to the significant increase in operating expenses as well as to the change in fair value measurements from conversion premiums included in notes payable and related party notes payable and

changes related to the carve-out of original issue discounts and the fair value of warrants issued on select borrowings; and to an increase in loss at settlement of related party notes payable, notes payable, and vendor payables in trust, net due to the settlement of certain related party notes payable, notes payable, and vendor payables in trust with the commitment to issue shares of Class A Common Stock at the July 2021 closing of the merger with Property Solutions Acquisitions Corp. at a price below the fair value on the date of settlement.
Cash was $505 million as of December 31, 2021. The cash balance as of March 31, 2022, was $276 million. The decrease in cash from December 31, 2021, to March 31, 2022, was due in part to a scheduled $97 million note and accrued interest payment.

The Company plans to host a conference call open to investors after it files its Q1 2022 results in mid-May.
