Formidable Competitor For Tesla And Porsche Taycan

Lucid Motors, a California-based company controlled by Saudi Arabian investors, has unveiled its first production electric car, the Lucid Air sedan. In terms of design, the production-ready version of the model turned out to be almost an exact copy of the show car shown to the public back in the sixteenth year.

The car has narrow strips of headlights and lamps, but its main feature is the almost completely transparent roof: the windshield here reaches right up to the B-pillars, while another glass section is provided above the heads of the rear passengers.

At the same time, the electric Lucid Air 2021 also has thoughtful aerodynamics, and the developers proudly report that its drag coefficient is only 0.21.

Compared to the aforementioned concept, the interior of the production model has become somewhat simpler. It has a traditional layout with two front seats and a three-seater rear sofa. However, in the future (from 2022) the car can be ordered with separate second-row seats.

The laconic front panel of Lucid Air houses a 34.0-inch wide display, conventionally divided into three thematic sections. Plus, the developers have installed a large touchscreen on the center console, but the number of analog buttons has been reduced to the required minimum.

The sedan is built on the basis of its own LEAP (Lucid Electric Advanced Platform) platform and has a layout quite traditional for electric cars with a traction battery located under the floor. The suspension design uses conventional springs and electronically controlled shock absorbers.

The four-door reaches a length of 4,975 mm, while the wheelbase is 2,960. The main (rear) trunk has a volume of 456 liters, and the additional (front) – 202 liters. The cars are driven by compact, but very efficient electric motors. According to the developers, the unit weighing 74 kg is capable of developing up to 670 hp. and spin up to 20,000 rpm.

In this regard, the new product from Lucid Motors simply has no competitors. For example, the Tesla Model S electric motor weighs 134 kg and produces 429 forces, and the 170-kg Porsche Taycan unit develops 449 “horses”.

The new Lucid Air model will be offered in four different models, with the base variant coming later in 2022. Its characteristics have not yet been disclosed, although it is likely that such an electric car will receive a single 395-horsepower electric motor on the rear axle.

It will receive power from Samsung batteries with a capacity of 75 kWh, which will provide a range of 386 kilometers (according to the American EPA cycle). The basic electric car will cost less than $ 80,000 (almost 6.0 million rubles at the current exchange rate).

The base version will be preceded by an all-wheel drive Lucid Air Touring worth $ 95,000 (RUB 7.1 million). It is equipped with two electric motors with a total capacity of 620 hp, as well as a traction battery of 75 kWh. It is reported that the 0-60 mph (97 km / h) Touring modification is capable of accelerating in 3.2 seconds, and its top speed reaches 250 km / h. The power reserve is declared at 653 km.

The first two top versions to appear on the market are the Lucid Air Grand Touring and the Air Dream Edition. The start of their sales is scheduled for the second quarter of 2021, with the first option estimated at $ 139,000 (10.4 million rubles), and the second at $ 169,000 (12.6 million rubles).

For the modification of the Lucid Air Grand Touring, electric motors with a total capacity of 800 hp are announced. and a battery with a capacity of 113 kWh. From 0-60 mph (97 km), it accelerates in 3.0 seconds, reaching speeds of up to 270 km / h. A car can travel as much as 832 km on a single charge.

In turn, the Lucid Air Dream Edition boasts a performance level of 1,080 forces. Thanks to this, such an electric car “shoots” from 0-60 mph in just 2.5 seconds. On standard 19-inch wheels, the four-door can drive up to 810 km without recharging, and on optional 21-inch wheels – up to 748 km.

Without exception, all versions of Lucid Air have a quick charger, with which you can replenish the 480 km range in just 20 minutes. For the model, a second level autopilot is also promised, which in the future can be upgraded to the third. 32 sensors and a frontal lidar are responsible for its performance. Plus, the list of equipment includes eight airbags at once, among which there are two knee airbags (for front riders).

Lucid Motors has already started accepting orders for its first child, while they plan to release the model at their own plant in Arizona, whose construction is nearing completion. At first, the production capacity of the enterprise will make it possible to annually produce 20,000 cars, but then the volume of production of electric cars will increase to 130,000. However, this is not the limit – in the future, up to 380,000 cars per year will roll off the assembly line.
