A computer-literate friend and I were discussing EVs, and I mentioned that Lucid was initially teasing a Launch Edition of 255 cars, which I thought was an odd number. He told me that one byte can store numbers from 0 to 255 and is consequently one character slot in a database.
Could that be why Lucid chose 255? Maybe an inside joke among the engineers . . . and a dog whistle to those in the know that everything about Lucid is engineering-oriented?
Will be interesting to see if Lucid acknowledges how many Dream Editions will actually be produced. I have my deposit in and am anxiously awaiting the Sept 9th unveil to determine if I will follow through on ordering the Dream Edition. It is impossible to obtain any info currently. Believe me I have tried.
