Having 1,000-horsepower, all-electric zero emissions sedan Lucid Air has been unveiled by Lucid Motors last month in Los Angeles. Covered in techno-camouflage in a brief appearance, it is estimated to have a range of 400 Mph.
Yielding to the requirements of the driver, in addition to the passengers and the road, Lucid Air provides an extraordinary driving experience. Lucid Air is expected to have a range of at least 300 miles, and is to be compatible with a larger, 130 kWh battery pack that would speed up to 400 miles. In comparison to the Model S which can achieve 183 to 215 miles on a full charge, Lucid Air will be the first car to eclipse the range and battery capacity of Tesla’s electric vehicles.
Robert Baldwin, who drove the Lucid Air recently, holds the view that the interior design and technology are quite remarkable as well:
“The Air is a bona fide luxury vehicle, with leather trim and wood accents throughout the interior. The metal exterior gives way to a swooped-back glass roof, creating the feeling of more space to the already roomy passenger cabin. I’m six foot, three inches, and finding a car with ample room in the front is difficult. The Air’s front and back seats accommodated my long legs and rather large head with no problem. That’s not surprising since the car is aimed squarely at the BMW 7 Series, which also has a spacious interior. What was a surprising addition was the back seat that reclined, similar to the seats in the first-class aircraft?”
As a battery company named Atieva, Lucid Motors was opened in 2007 and since then they have continued to improve unique battery chemistry such as they do with Lucid Air again. The new battery provides breakthrough tolerance to repeat fast-charging and improving energy productivity as well.
According to the company, Lucid Air has maximum capability with minimal effort:
“Ensure that time you spend with your car is time well spent. Experience the time-saving convenience of robust fast charging and automated driving systems. Interactions with the vehicle become fluid through elegant visual design, easy to reach screen array and natural voice systems. Time is precious, so when charging on the go, you can get back on the road quickly. While many batteries age prematurely if fast-charged regularly, you can fast charge a Lucid battery at will without worries.”
The well-optioned models will retail for over $100,000. Future models will be available from about $65,000 either. As the company defines itself; “We’re a completely different company.”
