First sight: Lucid Air

Lucid designers take us behind the scenes of the Silicon Valley startup’s first production car, a luxury electric saloon set to disrupt the competition with new proportions and more than 500 miles of range.

California-based Lucid Motors have finally revealed their first production model, the Air saloon that offers the space of a large luxury car in a reimagined, midsized package. Closely based on the concept car we saw in 2016, the Air is a departure from traditional luxury flagships with its cab forward-design and short nose, enabled by the Air’s compact, proprietary electric drivetrain. The Air is putting other carmakers on notice with a 518-mile range and a drag coefficient of only 0.21 Cd, the lowest of any production vehicle, usurping the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.
