LUCID(formerly known as Atieva)

CarScoops

Lucid Motors, formerly Atieva, has just released the first official image of its all-electric sedan wrapped in a unique camouflaged finish.
Codenamed the Atvus, the brand’s first model will debut in some form at the Los Angeles Auto Show and was recently pictured alongside a BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class, two of its proposed rivals.

As the main image below shows, the Atvus is significantly smaller than both these German offerings, but the company is reportedly aiming to offer similar cargo space to the S-Class and 7-Series alongside smaller exterior dimensions. In reality though, it will directly target the Tesla Model S...

...While visiting the company’s facility recently, Motor Trend learned that the model will be offered with two electric motors, similar to a selection Model S variants. All told, the available front motor will provide 400 hp while the rear will deliver 600 hp, making for a round 1000 hp, seemingly more than enough to give the Model S P100D a run for its money.

It has also been revealed that the chassis of the Atvus will be constructed mostly from lightweight aluminum while the door skins will be made from carbon fiber...

'Air'CONCEPT from LUCID(formerly known as Atieva)

Lucid Air Unveiled With Stunning Design, 1,000 HP And 400 Mile Range
CarScoops

Dec 14, 2016 | By Brad Anderson

Electric automaker startup Lucid Motors has just taken the covers off its very first model, dubbed the Air.

Teased on multiple occasions in recent months, the Lucid Air will directly target top-of-the-range Tesla Model S versions and a number of ICE executive sedans. Priced from around $160,000 in the U.S., it doesn't come cheap but does promise a lot.

For starters, the Lucid Air is powered by two electric motors, one driving the front wheels and one powering the rear, making for a grand total of 1,000 hp. Customers then have the option between a 100 kWh or 130 kWh battery pack, the latter of which provides a range of up to 400 miles on a single charge...

They said the same thing about Tesla long before electric cars were fashionable. I wouldn't be so sure.

Re: LUCID(formerly known as Atieva)

Interior is Mazda 3 meets Ford GT.

Front end is new VW design language meets new Dodge Charger and Honda Civic.

These aren't really bad things, but rather just my observations. The car is beautiful!

Tesla in the beginning was expensive (about 100k per roadster) but they had deep pockets and stuck to it and was able to offer the Model S at a lower rate. Tesla isn't out of it just yet they are having problems with the Model 3 now. $160k is a lot.

Lucid Motors Reveals ‘Air’ EV Super Sedan – Will It Be Rarefied or a Total Vacuum?
TTAC

By Seth Parks on December 15, 2016

Wednesday night, in a nondescript warehouse southeast of San Francisco, Lucid Motors revealed its first car, and the almost-production ready Air has far more to offer than its name implies. This low slung sedan is...

...neither groundbreaking nor tired. Based on the numbers, it should offer real sports-sedan driving dynamics. It follows a function-before-form design ethos featuring a dash-to axle ratio near zero, a roofline dramatically lower than anything else one might reasonably compare it to, and a hatch-cum-four-door coupe profile...

...The team has less than a year before the design is frozen, which is tomorrow in car years. This is not a concept car. We may expect the images seen here to closely approximate the final article, inside and out...

...We cannot yet report on how it drives, though the company provided engineer-chauffeured rides.
From the passenger seat the Air rides low, smooth, and quiet. And it accelerates like an F-16. Lucid asserts it is an uncompromising drivers car. We enthusiastically anticipate independently verifying their claim...
...The company says the car has a Mercedes E-class like footprint with an S-Class like interior volume...

...while Lucid is not a household name, neither is it a personal electronics maker or an internet search engine operator trying to break into a new industry. Lucid is a company with a singular automotive focus. It is stacked with auto industry insiders and has been active in the development of Lithium-ion Battery technology since 2007.

The company has existed for almost a decade, but was little known 11 months ago, and just gave itself a new name in October. The rebranding has now begun in earnest. The little company-that-may has been on a roll since releasing video in July depicting its re-powered Mercedes Metris minivan drag racing and defeating both a Tesla and a Ferrari. In November , Lucid brought the Air to the LA Auto Show, albeit under artful camouflage. The company announced in late November that it inked a deal to build a new $700 million production facility in Arizona. Then, three days ago, the company announced a development breakthrough made in conjunction with its battery partner Samsung SDI, enabling its tremendous 2.5-second 0-60 mph acceleration and Baltimore to Boston range...

...The Air will employ a standard 100 kWh battery pack, similar in size to Tesla’s most recent top-end unit. To achieve its promised 400-mile range, customers will need to opt for the optional 130 kWh battery pack. Lucid is not the only company aiming to deliver a battery pack capable of 400 miles on a single charge, but it may be the first to market if it delivers on its late 2018 production schedule. Pricing is predictably fluid at this point, though reservations are being accepted. Expect early high-content Airs to retail around $150,000 with later follow-on models at around half that.
