    Well, it's started . . .

    Since I'm well over 18, these fractional acceleration differences strike me as boring...not that I have any interest in Tesla any longer. Been there done that. ;)

    So far I haven’t had any issues with the Audi’s wireless CarPlay (knock wood)

    Interesting Tech Piece

    The piece about regenerative braking in the Audi is not true. I have the E-Tron now for about a month and you can most definitely set it so that lift off from the accelerator begins regenerative braking. There are varying levels of regenerative braking that can be set. The Audi also has an...

    These robotic narrations, with countless mispronunciations, drive me nuts. With that said, it was an interesting video.

    Hmm, better get my deposit back before.....

    Transport Evolved Video: We Ride In The Lucid Air Sedan With NYSE: CCIV's David Lickfold

    To be honest, if they scrapped it because they couldn't get it to work properly, that would be a bit of a concern too. Almost any high-end automaker knows how to develop and implement adjustable air suspension. Why not Lucid? I agree with you that if it was ditched due to cost, shame, shame...

    Transport Evolved Video: We Ride In The Lucid Air Sedan With NYSE: CCIV's David Lickfold

    I'm not going to rationalize, this car at this price should have air suspension...at least that's how I feel about it. I've had it in several cars and have not had any issues. I think it unquestionably improves the ride and provides the opportunity for adjusting ride height.

    Transport Evolved Video: We Ride In The Lucid Air Sedan With NYSE: CCIV's David Lickfold

    I find the lack of air suspension, if true, to be absolutely incredible in a car of this price. My just purchased Audi E-Tron Sportback most certainly has air suspension and its ride & sound supression are absolutely delicious. I just plugged in at an EA charger and put on about 125 miles in...

    Transport Evolved Video: We Ride In The Lucid Air Sedan With NYSE: CCIV's David Lickfold

    I went back and took another look at the video and you’re 100% correct. Somehow those narrow windows had eluded me. I don’t know the height of the reviewer, but it’s clear he has adequate headroom, so I doubt he’s 6’6”. You’re correct, this issue is also manifested when he’s in the driver’s...

    Transport Evolved Video: We Ride In The Lucid Air Sedan With NYSE: CCIV's David Lickfold

    They need to iron out the many issues that are painfully obvious in these videos. If not, certainly at this price point, I will lose all interest. If these QC issues manifest themselves in the final product, Lucid won’t survive.

    All of this is very concerning. It’s getting late in the game, folks.

    Transport Evolved Video: We Ride In The Lucid Air Sedan With NYSE: CCIV's David Lickfold

    Yes, I too was concerned about obvious panel misalignments. In addition to yours, there was yet another with the driver's side doors. Aside from misalignments, there was a disturbing 'clunk' that the retractable center screen made as it hit the center console area as he brought it to its...

    Lucid Air vs. Mercedes EQS

    I really dislike quilted leather or, for that matter, quilted anything.

    I can’t imagine why. ;) Concurrently, you may take that 500 mile range down to 50. :)

    First Uncamouflaged Drive

    I'm only 5'7", so not the best person to ask about rear seating position. In my standard rear seat testing prior to purchasing the car, it seemed to be better than my MS and probably on par with the I-Pace, but more leg room. Since the car is only a few days old, I haven't had the opportunity to...

    First Uncamouflaged Drive

    Do you know the E-Tron has many of these same functions? This morning I told the Audi I was cold and it asked, ‘What temperature should I make it?’ If you say ‘I’m hungry’, the car responds, ‘Where would you like to eat?’. It’s an extremely accurate voice recognition. Overall, I’m far happier...

    First Uncamouflaged Drive

    In the meantime I bought an Audi E-tron Sportback. It's probably the quietest most serene ride I've felt with a truly lovely interior. Car & Driver called the noise suppression superb and only bested by 1db from a $355,000 Rolls. Sure, not the power or range of the upcoming Lucid, but at my age...

    Lucid Air vs. Mercedes EQS

    Let's be honest, until we get actual vehicles in the hands of testers, this is still vaporware. We can conjecture range & efficiency all we want, but until these cars are tested in real-world conditions, it remains supposition. Continued delays do not inspire confidence.

    I could somehow struggle by with 620hp. ;) But I'll wait for the Air Pure. Call me cheap.
