Lucid Air Hits The Road In All-New Video Demonstation

4 months ago by Mark Kane 12

Lucid Motors has released a video with its all-electric car – the “Air”, driving around the San Francisco Bay Area, a location where the latest EV was caught out driving earlier this week.

Cruising the San Francisco Bay Area in the All-Electric Lucid Air

From the video, the Air (full details) looks certainly looks encouraging.

The Air is scheduled for production late in 2018 according to the company.

“The Bay Area is a fascinating place for a drive. One moment, you are driving the streets of downtown San Francisco, surrounded by tall buildings, packed sidewalks, and streetcars. The next, you find yourself cruising the undulating roads of the Marin Headlands or San Gregorio, with the Pacific Ocean at your side.

The Lucid Air has been designed and engineered in the Bay Area, and it shows in Lucid’s vision for the vehicle. The 1,000 horsepower, all-electric powertrain and performance-tuned suspension make the Air a great driver’s car. An innovative cabin design gives the Air luxury-sedan space in a midsize footprint that is perfect for city driving. The breakthrough UX keeps occupants informed and engaged throughout the drive. By combining these elements, the Lucid Air provides the driving dynamics, excitement, and efficiency of a smaller car without giving away any of the comforts and luxury of a long-wheelbase sedan.”

    It’ll be interesting to see how many people chose the 130 kWh battery, and how many the 100 kWh.

    Also, I suppose they plan to use a CCS plug???

    So if you were a big fan, would you be a
    “Lucid Air-Head?”.

  4. MikeG says:

    Cuz everyone needs 1000+ horsepower in their daily driver. Especially when climbing the hills on “The Streets of San Francisco”.

    Back end looks like someone has run into it. Is that intentional?

      GM is officially the king of autonomous vehicles.

  6. kubel says:

    Does anyone here honestly believe this company has the slightest chance of a future that does not end rather quickly in bankruptcy?

    1. Rob Stark says:

      Yes, I give them a 20% chance to be selling cars in 2027.

      All new vehicle startups are likely to fail(51% plus chance).

      But in the chaos created in the transition to BEVs there will be at least a few that make it and at least a few legacy automakers that disappear.

    It’s so funny, there were a lot of Tesla doubters back in the days when they started off with the roadster. This is no different. If anything, they will be more successful as a lot of their employees carried lessons learnt when they did the model S. Now those same people decided to leave Tesla and make their own Model S 2.0 without Elon breathing down their necks every nanosecond.

      SOMEBODY had better be breathing down their necks if they hope to make it in this business!

    Terrible video. In the only shot with other cars in it those other cars are closing the gap to the Air.
    OK, maybe I watch too many car races, but still….
