Not to make this a bigger deal than it is, but I do find this a contradiction.The Dream Edition and Grand Touring were designed to maximize performance, range, and efficiency.
The Lucid Design and Engineering teams are actively working on improving the rear legroom and/or foot room for these models. Nothing has been committed to
The Dream, the top trim of a new manufacturer branding themselves as the EV S Class, was designed to maximize performance, range, and efficiency? That’s great, but it cannot be at the expense of basic luxury car staples if being sold at $170k.
Stepping back, I’m sure they have research that suggests it is range prohibiting EV (Model S) adoption by MB and BMW buyers more than it is luxury. As a 7 year EV user long removed from range anxiety, I tend to forget that
I’m guessing Lucid gets more test drives with 517 miles advertised, and once they’re in an EV, they’ll want it. I remember the blinding enlightenment of that first drive. It took me years before the haze from the instant torque honeymoon and tech in the S cleared and I found myself wanting more.
