    Looks like the Lucid Air will have a much nicer interior and more luxury features than the Model S/X. Assuming this makes it to market, the biggest question I have is this: Will there be a long distance charging network?

    This car sounds like an incredible deal. I hope they are able to produce in scale and have a charging network

    I think it's important to note that they mention BMW and Mercedes instead of Tesla. There is plenty of room in the future for many EV manufactures. ICE manufactures? Not so many.

    It would be really interesting to hear Tesla reaching out to them regarding the superchargers. Competition and volume towards the mission is a good thing.

    The trunk is tiny and the Frunk is HUGE in this video p-review of the Lucid Air:



    I look forward to seeing what happens to the trunk space when we see a bench seat vesrion without the airline 1st class recline stealing so much of the trunk's space.

    Those had better be three really close friends! That's approx. 2.5x5x2.5 = bathtub.

    Why? To compete with a car that won't be on the market until 2020 even if all goes well?

    Most likely their QC will be the SAE CSS/Combo which some are showing up already at 350KW charge rate though no car now can handle that so it is really a wash. But if the lucid car build theirs with that charger in mind, and help with the QC expansion I can see where they can succeed.

    Oh, I thought it meant "Quality Charge"... or was it "Quick Control"? :)

    Wow! The Chief Technology Officer is the former Tesla Model S engineer and their website is a total copy of Tesla. Even the fonts! Looks like a cool car though and I will definitely be interested if they go to production. The interior design is significantly more futuristic then Tesla.

    Why post this in the Model X forum when there are perfectly good threads on Lucid over in the Electric Vehicles forum?

    I don't the see the similarities between the Lucid and Tesla website. Same goes with the font. It looks like every other "modern" website design. Tesla's website also draws inspiration from the Apple website. (Thats a good thing)

    How is this:

    Similar to this:

    Tesla would be wise to take notes on the interior quality.

    I can't imagine how they can make it for less than $200k a piece.

    I don't see any EV will work unless they have superchargering stations like Tesla. I know there are public fast chargerimg stations out there, but they are very limited.
