    Here’s every angle of the all-electric Lucid Air in pictures

    I just noticed on the Lucid Motors website that the rear doors of the Air open a full 90 degrees, which is a very useful feature. I was thinking the power-operated doors were just a nice-to-have item. But with the rear doors opening that wide, it becomes more of a must-have unless someone has...

    Here’s every angle of the all-electric Lucid Air in pictures

    Out of Spec Motoring just did a live stream on the Lucid Air from the Classic Car Club of Manhattan. The two cars reviewed were a Zenith Red Grand Touring and a White Dream Edition. These are still not production-representative cars, but rather hand-built one-offs. (In fact, the reviewer...

    Here’s every angle of the all-electric Lucid Air in pictures

    Has anyone on the forum seen an actual car in the Eureka Gold? If so, what is your opinion of the color? I'm not excited about any of the three Dream Edition colors and had dismissed the gold out of hand as being too yellowish. However, in recent pictures it sometimes looks more subtle and...

    Lucid Motors Opens Studio & Service Center in Beverly Hills

    There are some things we want to see in that region, and we won't mind paying for charging as long as it's available from someone. We occasionally go to Vermont, and it's first EA station is just now under construction. I'm hoping that as more EV's switch to heating interiors with heat pumps...

    Lucid Motors Opens Studio & Service Center in Beverly Hills

    Just curious, LucidDreams. Have you looked at a map of Electrify America coverage? I wondering what other roadside charging options there are up your way? I ask because we have been thinking about some cross-country sight-seeing in the Air, and we were assuming we would have to avoid the...

    Lucid Motors Opens Studio & Service Center in Beverly Hills

    That's very good news, Zak. Thanks for the info. I get my Tesla serviced in Dania Beach which is about a 90-minute drive from Naples and easily accessible from the lightly-traveled interstate that connects Naples to the Miami area. Having to deal with traffic on the northward leg up to the...

    Rear Seating

    I sent this to Lucid Sales today with a request for the specific dimensions indicated. I don't doubt the Air will have plenty of longitudinal room between the front and back seats. I'm more concerned about long periods of unsupported thighs, which was the issue that appeared in the two videos...

    Rear Seating

    Thanks for pointing this out. I wonder if this is the final word on the rear footwells? If so, it appears that Lucid decided not to cup out the bottom of the front seats to allow for stretching the legs more forward to help lower the knee position. I wonder if they altered the rake of the...

    Lucid Motors unveils a $69,900 version of its long-range, luxury electric sedan

    I have owned two Mercedes SL's but never an S Class. However, I spent many hours in the backseats of S Classes during my working years being shuttled around. I own a 2015 Tesla Model S with the rare executive rear seating option, and I have test driven recent Model S's with the rear bench...

    Lucid Motors Opens Studio & Service Center in Beverly Hills

    For Florida reservation holders, I just checked the Studio and Service Center map. The Florida Service Center for Lucid will be in Riviera Beach, just north of West Palm. It seems there will not be a Service Center in the Miami area, at least initially. I assume that means there is a higher...

    Lucid Motors unveils a $69,900 version of its long-range, luxury electric sedan

    A lot of information has been coming out about the new 2021 Mercedes S Class in the past week. It will have two levels of rear-wheel steering, with the higher level giving it a turning radius of an A Class Mercedes. There will be an optional active suspension which can actually lift the wheels...

    Lucid Motors unveils a $69,900 version of its long-range, luxury electric sedan

    I was surprised at how much information Lucid had put out earlier about the Air that got no mention during the reveal. For example, Lucid once released a lengthy article discussing its work on cabin quietness. The article talked about use of acoustic glass and a 29-speaker sound system with...

    Lucid Motors unveils a $69,900 version of its long-range, luxury electric sedan

    I just looked at the most recent 36 videos that were posted on YouTube about the Lucid Air. 22 of them (61%) compared Lucid to Tesla. Not a single one compared Lucid to large German sedans, which Lucid claims to be its primary target market. In fairness, Lucid Motors was not the source of...

    Lucid Motors unveils a $69,900 version of its long-range, luxury electric sedan

    Within two years Mercedes will have its EQS AMG and BMW will have its all-electric 7 Series on the market. If Lucid is still chasing Tesla around the race track, hoping to peel away Model S Plaid buyers at a $30-50K+ price premium, and not going head-to-head with the German marques in interior...

    Lucid Air Designer Derek Jenkins Talks Tesla-Beating EV Super Sedan

    Is it just me, or does it look as if the center seatbelt buckle in the rear seat will cut into a left passenger's back or arm?

    Lucid Air Designer Derek Jenkins Talks Tesla-Beating EV Super Sedan

    Well, at least we now know what cars Derek Jenkins drives. Otherwise, this article is just a rehash of Lucid PR we've seen dozens of times in recent months. Despite the innumerable questions about many aspects of the Air that were not answered at the reveal but were forwarded to Lucid Sales...

    Donut Media Talks Lucid: Tesla's Ex Chief Engineer is Taking on Elon Musk

    I had already seen this video and found its presentation of the technology in the Lucid creative and entertaining. However, there was no actual new information in the video. The continuing stream of videos comparing Lucid to Tesla by people who have not actually driven a Lucid -- and in most...

    Rear Seating

    Yeah, Tesla can be annoyingly slow and also hard to reach. My front passenger door handle froze in the extended position last Saturday (Oct 3), and the door won't open from the outside. The earliest service appointment I could get was October 25. So add another three weeks to the couple of...

    Lucid Motors Opens Studio & Service Center in Beverly Hills

    It is. Thanks. Don't know why I couldn't find it in scrolling the homepage where I used to find it. I just wanted to check if they had taken down the specs for rear legroom since something seems to be in flux.

    Lucid Motors Opens Studio & Service Center in Beverly Hills

    I am having trouble finding the "Specs" section that was on the Lucid website. Has it been removed?
