The electric car space has been largely dominated by Tesla, but it’s about to get a bit more crowded, especially in the luxury space. And it’s not by the usual suspects on the luxury scene: Mercedes-Benz, Audi, BMW and Porsche. Nor is it from the usual electric players, Faraday Future or Fio, but rather lesser known Lucid Motors.
Lucid Motors is currently taking orders on two models, the Lucid Air and Launch. The lesser powered Air still packs a punch with 400hp and a 240-mile range, but it’s the Launch that is snapping necks with 1,000hp and a 315-mile ranger. In fact, this past April Lucid’s Launch was able to match Ferrari LaFerrari’s insane speed of 217mph. Not satisfied the team at Lucid tweaked the software, a perk of electric, and hit an astounding 235.44 on a 7.5- but recently they adjusted the software, removed the limiter and achieved a top speed of 235.44mph of the 7.5-mile oval track.
