Here is a 1000bhp Tesla beater, Lucid Air!
The Air will be able to go for 400miles per charge and they claim it will have fast charging batteries that wont suffer from degradation as a result of multiple charges. Samsung are apparently their battery provider though, so we will wait and see on that one!
Their battery tech is set to feature in Seasons 5/6 of Forumla-E, allowing races to complete without the current mid-race swap out, this I’m sure will give confidence to their shareholders should this be successful
Being an EV, has opened up plenty of design freedom for Lucid – “the interior space of a long wheelbase Mercedes-Benz S-Class [in a car] that’s a little bit bigger than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class [and] shorter, narrower, and lower than a Tesla Model S.”
As you can see from the pictures, the interior is certainly at the top end! It looks clean, sleek whilst still having plenty of tech!
The Air will be fully autonomous, powered by Waymo – but will allow for manual driving.
It will be available from 2018, we can’t wait to see this!
