Initially, the launch of the production of the first electric Lucid Air was planned in 2018. There are a lot of rumors about an American startup, and he constantly comes across the news about financial problems.
Almost three years ago, the American startup Lucid Motors introduced its own stylish Air sedan. The company officially recognized the funding problem in 2017. Since that time, numerous rumors about financial problems began to appear on the Web. Periodically, news appeared about the desire to sell the project to Ford. However, all this turned out to be just rumors.
Financial problems were resolved thanks to the Saudi Arabia Sovereign Wealth Fund, which invested $ 1 billion in the company. Since then, Lucid has continued to develop its own plans and has already begun construction of a plant in the city of Casa Grande, Arizona, USA. Now is the construction of the foundation.
According to startup representatives, the plant will begin its work in 2020. Experts consider these plans to be ambitious, but things have already moved forward. The initial cost of electric Lucid Air will be about $ 52,500
An electric transmission with a capacity of about 400 horsepower will be installed on the sedan as a power unit. The power reserve will be from 380 to 640 km, depending on the configuration. Later, one can expect the appearance of a 1,000-hp “charged” modification.
