Tesla Motors have achieved a lot in the sphere of electric vehicles. So it doesn’t come as a surprise that many drivers see this company as the future of electric cars. Competitors of Tesla also see them as a strong rival on this market. However, things are likely to change now that Lucid Motors (you could’ve heard of them as Atieva before) have introduced their new electric vehicle. According to the latest rumors, the new model is going to be incredibly powerful.
Lucid Motors Electric Car Specs
The car Lucid Motors are working on is known as Lucid Air. Judging from Lucid car pictures it is an executive sedan with something promising inside. As far as we can trust to the news Lucid electric car is already in progress and we will be able to see the first results soon. It’s going to be a really strong rival on the market because standard version of Lucid Motors electric car will provide at least 1000 HP.
It will also be equipped with a hundred kilowatt-hour battery pack. It’s estimated that Lucid Motors Air vehicle can provide around 300-mile range as the standard version. These parameters match the most powerful battery used by Model S by Tesla. In addition, Lucid Air has a potential to exceed its competitor’s maximum output of power. If the model still lives up to the expectations it will make it from 0 to 60 less than in 3.0 seconds. For example, the most powerful model by Tesla makes it in 2.5 seconds.
By the way, all characteristics described belong to the base model of Lucid electric car. Does it mean that we can expect something more powerful? Perhaps, yes. According to the company, they plan to produce the car using the 130kWh battery pack. In this case, Lucid Motors electric car will offer 400 miles of range which is a significant number.
