Now that we have an idea of sales volume (via info released at the recent test ride event) for 2019, Lucid Motors seems less like vaporware and more like the real deal.
Lucid projects sales of just 255 units in 2019, a modest figure for sure. This is unlike other startups who promise us the moon, but never deliver.
According to Lucid, the automaker plans to construct a $700 million manufacturing factory in Arizona. This site will be ready to begin small-scale production in 2018.
Come 2019, Lucid hopes to deliver 255 units of is "launch edition" Lucid Airs to buyers. Each of these high-end Airs will cost ~ $165,000.
Quick specs for "launch edition" Air::
- 1,000+ horsepower
- 0 to 60 MPH in just 2.5 seconds
- 130 kWh battery for 400 miles of range
