Lucid Air Plans to Drop Your Jaw with 1,000 HP
Watch out Tesla, there might be a new sheriff in town! Electric automaker startup Lucid Motors has decided to make our holidays a lot better by revealing their first project, a marvelous concept called Lucid Air, which plans to raise the bar for electric supercars to the next level.
Ready to compete with the Tesla Model S and many other executive sedans out there, the Lucid Air will probably cost around $160,000 in the United States, which is not something we’d call cheap. But it’s surely worth every penny, since this EV will be powered by the outrageous electric motors, one for each axle, delivering a total of 1,000 HP.
All that power will be backed by either 100 kWh or 130 kWh of electric power, with the bigger battery pack promising 400 miles of traveling on a single charge. If you think that’s impressive, the 2.5 seconds time for a 0 to 60 mph (0-96 km/h) run will surely make you even more interested in this beast.
Unfortunately, there’s no clue about how the production-ready vehicle will look like, but the concept pictured here and the prototype revealed to the press is incredible. Futuristic and glamorous, with sleek LED headlights and vertical daytime running lights, this thing looks like it’s ready to move in for the kill.
The Lucid Air also shows off a panoramic glass roof, generous interior space and an opulent vibe about itself. Inside the cockpit you will find a set of reclined rear seats wrapped in white leather and surrounded by interactive displays, as well as a minimalist dashboard to balance everything off.
Please note that reservations have been opened already for customers willing to make a $25,000 deposit to get their own Lucid Air.
