Video Description (below): Lucid Air Test Mules show up at CANDCAV

It was wet today, but that didn’t stop Lucid Motors from testing their new 1,000hp (Yes. Can you believe that?! Watch out, Tesla!) Lucid Air. It attracted a lot of attention. The Lucid Air is currently being tested all around California. About one week ago, all of these test mules were at SF. I am thinking that the cars are being tested in the wet today (Obviously).

Quick spec:

  • 1,000+ horsepower
  • 0 to 60 MPH in just 2.5 seconds
  • 100 kWh battery for 300 miles range (130 kWh option for 400 miles)

OK, that’s just great. Why wait until 2018 (or beyond) for a car when you can have a 100D today? Oh, a few more HP. So they’ll sell 5,000 or so.

Except a P100D isn’t anywhere near a luxury class interior. Not even close to feeling like an S class. At least the Air feels like money well spent.

The Air feels like money well spent from viewing a YouTube video of it? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

Tesla’s new interiors feel amazing and look very nice and simple and clean. You don’t know luxury. Tesla is simple luxury. Mercedes is over the top. Simple is always better.

Compare the interior of the Model S or X to a Cadillac ELR, Lexus RX, Audi, or Mercedes, and the Tesla loses completely. Only a Tesla fanboy consider a “simple” (i.e., featureless) interior to be luxurious! And I *own* a Model X (and previously had an ELR). There’s no comparison, but I didn’t buy the X for it nonexistent luxury appointments, but for the 250 electric miles, AutoPilot, and size. Heck, the car can’t even drive as quiet as my old Rav4 EV, let alone as silent as a Lexus. Teslas are NOT luxury cars.

Refreshing to see someone call it as seen … I wish other people would be able to do the same.

1,000 HP and its still slower than a P100D with 680 hp LOL!

Priced well above a P100D I would bet…

Yeah, it’s the ultra. Probably at least 100k over the Model S, but hey we need a top end luxury model.

I counted 5 LCD screens.
You will feel like you are working at NASA ground control while driving.

Ride events make SO much sense,
people are thinking at Lucid.

Having a 1000 hp motor is completely pointless if the battery can’t deliver enough power to produce 1000 hp. Tesla is already limited by the battery in their P100D so I very much doubt Lucid have managed to overcome this limitation. So 1000 hp, 2000 hp or 5000 hp makes no difference at all, it just becomes an expensive ornament.

Just because Teslas battery can’t produce 1000hp, doesn’t mean Lucids battery can’t. Tesla doesn’t offer a 130kWh battery.

It is surprising that Lucid can put 130 KWh in the car and apparently not Tesla but the Model S 100D is available now while the Lucid air won’t be for a few years, so it is possible that by then Tesla will offer a more energetic battery too. We will see. At least we know that it won’t be less.

NIO someone manages to pull 1MW (1340hp) out of its batteries in the EP9.

With a motor for each wheel torque vectoring will be as smooth as silk.

Only four seats and I have three kids and a wife, question which one do I leave at home?
or do I just buy a Tesla or a Bolt?

A normal five seat version will be available too and at a lower cost, according to Lucid info.
