I've been in the Model S. I haven't been in this Lucid, and neither have you. Not saying you're wrong, but I'll reserve judgement until the car is actually on the road. At the moment, it's just a vehicle up on a pedestal. And also you have to remember, the Model S is how many years old now? I'd hope this vehicle is better than the aging Model S.

Re: LUCID(formerly known as Atieva)

The Model S in many areas including my own is so ubiquitous that to me it is no longer truly desirable. The Lucid Air appeals to me on a level that the Model S has long since failed to. I fully understand that everyone may not share my viewpoints on desirability.

Re: LUCID(formerly known as Atieva)


I kinda think the goal of the Model III is to become like blue jeans
not only ubiquitous
but mandatory
where everyone not driving one better have a darn good excuse

I myself may in fact be a Model 3 customer but I will wait a year or so past its debut to make sure that I am not a marginally paid beta tester.

Early adopters are quite the fickle bunch, and I can guarantee that slots will be opening within a year of the launch. If not a slightly preowned Model 3 may be an alternative.

With as many reservations as they have, it'll be at least a year to get one anyway, even if a good chunk of the reservations end up backing out.

Many of my coworkers have the Model 3 preordered. But I work at SpaceX so that isn't very surprising hahah.
