Faraday a Finalist for Fast Company Design Awards

We’re very excited to announce that the Faraday Porteur has been selected as a finalist for the Fast Company “Innovation By Design” Awards, the winner of which will be announced October 16th in NYC.  It’s a true honor to share the finalist position in the Transportation category with the likes of Ford, Boeing, Fisker, and Ossur – true leaders in the development of novel transportation solutions in everything from prosthetic limbs to airplanes.

Check out the competition and nominees in other categories at the Fast Company website.

We’re looking forward to attending the award ceremonies in New York and excited at the prospect of adding another award to Faraday’s growing list of accolades!

  • Our NEW Porteur S in grey on its way to work this morning. This bike has a 25% larger battery for up to 25 miles of range on a single charge. It's also our lightest bike yet. Link in bio. #sfbart #commuter #betteronabike #lakemerritt
  • Production update: We know you all are excited to get your hands on our new step-through Cortland model. Here's a recent shot of the frame being painted in Stingray Blue. Workers are using paint guns here to coat each frame individually, and there's a negative air flow and water stream to safely collect the discarded paint. Can't wait to see these beauties once they're fully built!
