Lucid Motors shows off autos to be manufactured in Pinal County


Derek Jenkins, VP of design at Lucid Motors said: ‘Lucid Air ushers in a new era of luxury mobility that delivers a distinctly elevated level of integrated design and technology’.

Inside the cabin, space has been the number-one priority for designers with the brand claiming the Air to have “a full-size luxury-class interior while maintaining an agile, sport sedan footprint” as well as the biggest “frunk” of any electric vehicle, however an exact capacity has not been quoted.

“Lucid Motors is driven to make the electric auto better, and by doing so, help move the entire industry forward towards accelerated adoption of sustainable mobility”, he said.

Lucid Air has been in the news for quite some time now.

“With the Lucid Air, we have created a halo vehicle for the entire industry, one which shows the advancements that are possible by pushing the boundaries of EV technology and performance to new levels”, said Peter Rawlinson, CEO and CTO of Lucid Motors.

The developers have called the concept of the layout of the cabin Lucid Space Concept, it is based on the miniaturization of engines, transmission and battery in order to increase the free space of the cabin.

It’s the second base variant of the Lucid electric auto. It’s a holistic, clean-sheet approach to advanced EV construction, without using existing “off the shelf” solutions so often seen in EVs from legacy automakers. Like other trims, it features a dual-motor AWD powertrain.

Deployed and streamed from the cloud, the configurator allows customers to choose between a number of interchangeable California-inspired backgrounds – complete with life-like features, such as moving waves and chirping birds – as they build their Lucid Air on any device.

If you look at the Air Dream Edition and Air Grand Touring, then it’s clearly far more expensive than Tesla Model S. However, Lucid Motors made Air and Air Touring variants keeping in mind nearly every aspect of Tesla Model S. Whether it be price, electric range, design or features, it competes against Tesla in all segments.

“When we embarked on this journey at Lucid Motors and the development of our first vehicle, the Lucid Air, we refused to compromise. With the cloud, we are reshaping the way the world buys cars”. It is just like creating an avatar for a game, but you will be designing the vehicle that you will get.

“The Lucid brand was created with a progressive, post-luxury mindset ideally suited to meet the rapidly evolving needs of the most progressive buyers”. “We consider Lucid to be at the forefront in a shift in consumer preferences toward new brands that offer direct relationships alongside products featuring entirely new levels of technology, performance, and design”.

AM understands that prices for the Lucid Air will start at around £40,040 (including US EV incentives) when it goes on sale in its home market. However, the company recently announced that it will bring its “Lucid Air” series of cars in 2021.

Zerolight has created what it claims is “the world’s most advanced car-buying journey” to deliver United Kingdom sales of the record-breaking Lucid Air – a Tesla rival claiming the world’s longest electric vehicle (EV) range.

That buys a 400PS rear-wheel-drive version claiming a 240-mile range from a 75kWh battery pack.

The development of the Lucid plant along with Nikola Motors has been a talking point for Pinal County and Arizona economists for years. It took 10 years to develop this electric vehicle.

Lucid Air’s premium electric vehicle is now pre-ordering customers in the United States and Canada, as well as select countries in Europe and Asia.

Air Dream Edition (1080 hp) is a limited edition with a price tag of 169 thousand dollars.
