Hot on the heels of reports from China claiming that Tata Motors had invested $900 million in Faraday Future for a 10 per cent stake in the electric startup, a Tata spokesperson has completely denied any investment.

DNA India reached out to Tata about the Faraday Future investment and were told, “The news is not true and hence we do not have any comment.”

It was initially reported that the investment would provide Tata Motors and Jaguar Land Rover with access to the advanced technologies created by Faraday Future, including connectivity systems it’s developed with Chinese backer LeEco.

The Tata investment would have come at a particularly tumultuous time for the electric startup promising to take on Tesla. Not only have a host of high-ranking executives left Faraday Future in recent weeks, but the company has tried and failed to attract any substantial investments.

Faraday Future Reportedly Receives $900 Million From Tata 14

After months of turmoil, it appears as though electric car startup Faraday Future has caught a huge break following a healthy investment from Tata Motors.

Chinese media outlet Gasgoo claims that the carmaker has attracted $900 million in funding from Tata Motors for a 10 per cent stake in the company, essentially valuing it at $9 billion.

While neither firm has commented on the reports, such an investment could prove fruitful for both carmakers. Not only could such a substantial chunk of money keep Faraday Future above water, it could also give Tata access to many of FF’s advanced technologies, including connectivity systems it has developed with Chinese backer LeEco.

Just a couple of days after unveiling its first proposed production model, the FF 91, Faraday claimed it had received over 64,000 reservations but failed to reveal how many of those orders included the optional $5,000 refundable deposit.

Yesterday, reports surfaced that the startup has lost five key executives in recent weeks.
