1,000-HP Lucid Air Sedan Is a Nice Way To Get Around SF – Video

If you’re one of the well-heeled denizens of Northern California and want a sleek electric sedan not so ubiquitous as a Tesla, Lucid has a car for you.

Or, rather, plans are in the works for later this decade, but meanwhile a one-minute spot of a scenic ride in the 1,000–horsepower, luxuriantly appointed lifestyle statement shows possibilities.

“The Lucid Air has been designed and engineered in the Bay Area, and it shows in Lucid’s vision for the vehicle,” says a company blog post. “The 1,000 horsepower, all-electric powertrain and performance-tuned suspension make the Air a great driver’s car. An innovative cabin design gives the Air luxury-sedan space in a midsize footprint that is perfect for city driving.”

Indeed, with a focus as strong on back seat comfort as front – ideal for the Chinese market which is financially backing the startup – the Air makes quite a statement.

The company is accepting reservations for either $2,500 or $25,500 for the Launch Edition, but has not nailed down a price.

More details will follow as it looks toward a projected 2018 launch that may not be until after that as it continues the work in progress.
