Luxury Electric Sedan Lucid Air To Follow Tesla Into Energy Storage
California based electric vehicle start-up Lucid Motors Inc has come up with fastest charging EV air sedan. It has capability to charge at the rate of up to 20 miles per minute when connected to a DC fast charging network.
The great mind behind this star-tup is an Ex Tesla Inc, model S chief engineer Peter Rawlinson. So you should not be surprised if you find many similarities in their specifications. Peter Rawlinson is the CEO and CTO of Lucid motors.
Report says the deliveries of the new pure-electric luxury sedan will start by second quarter of 2021, though perfomance testings are on
With up to 1,080 horsepower, Lucid Motors claims to date, it is the only electric sedan able to achieve a quarter-mile time under 10 seconds. Lucid Air can hit zero to 100 kms in less than 3 seconds. The power of the Lucid Air is complemented by an available extended-range capability that achieves an estimated EPA range of up to 832 kms on a single charge. It has an in-house developed, compact 113kWh extended-range battery pack.
Lucid Air sedan has a futuristic design. The headlamps have a Micro Lens Array system comprised of literally thousands of “light channels." Developed entirely in-house, this technology
provides the brightest, most precise and advanced lighting system ever. Digital steering of light direction is possible by digitally switching light channels in different directions, revolutionising visibility and enhancing safety.
Like many existing OEMs with new battery electrical vehicles on the market, Lucid has also partnered with Electrify America so the owners will get three years of free DC fast charging. LM has collaborated with Amazon to bring an advanced Alexa Built-In implementation. This enables owners to enjoy the full Alexa experience on the go – including navigation, calling, streaming media, smart home control, and adding items to a shopping cart or to-do list – all while keeping their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel.
“With the Lucid Air, we have created a halo car 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, Lucid Motors.
However, the price tag of the Lucid Air, which is seen as a ‘Tesla killer’ by many, will cost one a fortune. Lucid Motors officially unveiled its Lucid Air electric sedan, which will be priced between $US80,000 and $US160,000 depending on options.
“Lucid Motors is driven to make the electric car better, and by doing so, help move the entire industry forward, towards accelerated adoption of sustainable mobility,” said Peter Rawlinson in a statement to the press.
“The goal of this relentless approach to developing the world’s most advanced electric vehicle is to benefit all mankind with sustainable, zero emission transportation, and to also attract new customers to the world of EVs.
