Back in 2007, Atieva was nothing more than a back-up singer, producing electric batteries for other vehicle manufacturers. One decade and a re-brand later and Californian-based Lucid is main stage with their first production car, the Lucid Air (due Jan 2022). Mixing sustainability, luxury and efficiency is their goal, focusing solely on EV innovation. Even their factory is low emission. While the Air is their only current model, there have been whisperings of an electric SUV version called Project Gravity. Watch this space for Lucid to hit the UK.
The Tesla Model S had better watch out. Come 2022 the Lucid Air will be hot on its tail. Lucid’s all-electric super saloon will rip up the rule book of what it means to drive electric. Think ridiculous range, even more ridiculous acceleration and all the tech you could wish for.
