I have been searching for a MagSafe solution for the Lucid that would accommodate 2 iPhones and provide 15W fast charging. After doing a bit of research, there's a company called Course Motorsports that develops vehicle-specific phone mounts
and have them for a number of vehicles. Their general concept is to unclip the dash panel(s) and find existing mounting points. From there, they create a bracket that simply mounts to the existing screw and the bracket then accepts a variety of mounts (including MagSafe and 15W MagSafe Charging) to the exposed bracket. The beauty of their solution is that it looks factory installed and is completely reversible - to remove simple unclip the dash panel and remove the bracket.
Looking at our interior, I would like to see a mount created for both the driver's side and passenger side (of course, you can choose to install one or both depending on what you prefer. Here is a video of the mount they developed for the Ford F150
- this is a great example of exactly what I would like to see them develop for our Lucids. The bracket for that truck can be used on both the driver and passenger side.
I reached out to them and they said they would be happy to develop mounts for our cars but would need a a Lucid in their shop for a day. They are in Milton, VT, so not exactly a major metropolitan area
. I just got this email from them:
"We are located in Milton, Vermont. I'm not sure but my guess would be the nearest Lucid dealer might be Montreal Canada or possibly Boston, Massachusetts. This is respectively a 3 and 4 hour drive from our facility which I believe is the reason we have not seen any around our area yet. If you wanted to reach out and someone was willing we would gladly cooperate with them. If anyone can leave the car with us for the day, they would receive the prototype mount and the head option of their choice installed in the car free of charge."
If a fellow owner in the NE is willing to bring their Lucid in for the day, you would receive the prototype mount and whichever head you wanted for the mount. I'm attaching pictures of two areas I think this mount would work great on both the driver and passenger side of the Lucid. If anyone is interested in donating your Lucid for getting this developed, PM me with your email and I'll introduce you in a reply email back and you can then get the visit scheduled.
I believe this will be a great solution for those of us looking to mount and possibly charge our phones. The only other thing I would look to do is direct-wire the MagSafe chargers to the fuse block under the glovebox. This would then give us a great solution!
