Lucid Air Hits The LA Auto Show Stage

NOV 30 2017 BY MARK KANE 18

Just hours divides us from the opening of the Los Angeles Auto Show to the public, but we’ve been lucky enough to get inside ahead of time.

Here is the Lucid Air, the luxury all-electric in Los Angeles captured by our own Tom Moloughney.

Lucid Motors hopes to secure the $700 million required to build a production facility in Arizona and demonstrating the prototype is one way to attract investors.

With its huge 130 kWh battery pack, the Air should be able to drive for up to 400 miles.

Quick specs:

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

Looks like an electric Lincoln. By the way, is it sitting outside?

William

Pictures are from outside the four star Luxe City Center Hotel in Downtown LA , near to the LA Convention Center/ Auto Show.

Exactly. I was walking by
and they just pulled up. Perfect timing!

GreenMD

It kind of looks like the FF91 with the long back window – not really my style. Regardless, I hope they succeed or get bought by a larger manufacturer. More electric cars = better.

KevinZ

And people will buy this instead of a Tesla because…

DJ

It’s better. Finished that thought for ya.

These guys need to crap or get off the pot. Time to actually start selling them.

Robb Stark

Vaporware is not better.

There is zero percent chance that vehicle makes it to market for $60k.

The soonest a deconteed version of Lucid Air can make it to market is 2 years from breaking ground on a factory.At least $80k base price. Model S will have an upgraded/refreshed interior by then.

And no Supercharger Network nor Porsche 350 kWh charging stations.

What’s going on with that driver’s door? Look at both pictures of the driver’s side and the door doesn’t line up with either the rear door or the frame of the vehicle. The second photo looks like the door might be ajar but when you look at the top photo the misalignment is still there. I know concept cars have quirks but by that much?

DJ

You aren’t allowed to talk about panel gaps here on IEVs 😉

Mark.ca

The door it’s open, dude! You guys are fricking crazy with your panel gap obsession.

Kimmo57

It’s cracked open.

Tom Moloughney

Yes, the driver’s door was slightly open. There were people inside.

stuart22

I like it. Lengthy interior space suggests it’s going to be a hit in China.

Paul de Wit

To me this is a classy looking car.
Futuristic, but not in a crazy Honda / Toyota style.

What DCFC does it use? If it’s CCS/Chademo, they are going to have tough time selling it in San Diego (and probably OC and LA as well) since all the chargers are taken up by free charging Bolt/Leaf/i3. Heck, even those who want to visit SoCal will not want “expensive EV” that must wait an hour for Bolt.

EVShopper

Vaporware. Never. Gonna. Happen.

EVShopper

Of course, I could be wrong. People used to say that about Tesla.

Mark.ca

They are still saying it. Some they live in their own “reality”. Great looking car, i hope they make it.
