There’s a Full-Size Luxury Cabin in the Lucid Air’s Agile, Mid-Size Body
The Lucid Air is the first true luxury car ever designed from the ground up as an EV — and from the start of its development we used the Lucid Space Concept to maximize interior space. This new approach to sedan architecture takes full advantage of Lucid’s miniaturized EV drivetrain to deliver full-size interior volume with a mid-size exterior footprint.
As a result, when we begin customer deliveries early next year, the Lucid Air will offer class-leading interior space, a sculpted 113kWh battery pack, and the largest frunk ever offered in an electric car.
“It’s relatively easy to achieve more range by adding progressively more batteries but gaining ‘dumb range’ that way increases weight and cost, and reduces interior space,” said Peter Rawlinson, CEO and CTO, Lucid Motors. “Lucid Air has achieved its remarkable range whilst also reducing battery size through its in-house technology, resulting in a breakthrough in overall vehicle-level efficiency.”
In addition to unprecedented interior passenger space for its compact exterior footprint, the Lucid Air also comes with the largest frunk ever offered in a production EV. With a capacity of over 280 liters, the Lucid Air’s frunk is 89 percent larger than the current leader in its vehicle class and 40 percent larger than the current EV leader in the SUV class. In combination with its trunk, Lucid Air offers a total of 739 liters of luggage space, best in class for both electric and internal combustion engine vehicles by some margin.
The luxurious space and comfort realized by the Lucid Space Concept layout is tangible once inside the Lucid Air. The LEAP (Lucid Electric Advanced Platform) skateboard platform, integrates Lucid’s race-proven battery technology beneath occupants while the glass canopy roof opens its cabin to the sky, enhancing the Space Concept’s luxurious sense of space as it sweeps over passengers.
