Lucid Motors (previously Atieva) have created their first EV and it looks like it will be a beast.
What is particularly impressive is its charging rate. Lucid Motors have claimed it will have a charging rate of up to 20 miles per minute (faster than any Tesla). It also has a max range of 517 miles.
Not only is the charging impressive but Lucid Motor’s new EV is also rapid. The top of the range model, The Air Dream Edition, can reach top speeds of 168mph and can go 0 to 60mph in 2.5 seconds.
The basic model starts at around $80,000 and the top of the range model is a whopping $169,000. Comparatively, a Tesla Model S is currently around $85,000 but a Cybertruck is around $40,000 (I want one of these).
(Apologies for the pricing in Dollars)
It will be really interesting to see how much EVs improve over the next few years (particularly the batteries and charging capabilities) and how challengers to Tesla will develop their tech to stand out.
