Lucid Motors launches pre-orders for its Air electric sedan

December 20, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

Currently, an electric car can be pre-ordered by paying $ 1,000. Serial production of the long-awaited new items is scheduled for the end of next year.

Remember Lucid Motors? In 2016, she introduced her first prototype of the Air electric sedan. The stylish car had a capacity of 1000 horsepower (745 kilowatts), a power reserve of 643 kilometers and a price tag of $ 60 thousand. Since then, we have heard almost nothing new from this brand and its car.

 But in a recent email from a brand press service a couple of minutes ago, Lucid entices customers to make a $ 1,000 refundable deposit for the production version of the Air sedan. The message says that the assembly of the electric car is scheduled for 2020, although initially, the start of mass production was scheduled for 2018.

“As we approach the start of mass production of Lucid Air, which will take place at the end of 2020, we continue to make great strides here at Lucid Motors,” the company said in a statement. “We will regularly share new information in the coming months. We hope you had the opportunity to read the latest articles about our plant, which is under construction, and our beta prototypes, which are currently being tested. ”

 It is worth noting that since its initial introduction to the global automotive community in 2016, the company has achieved some significant success. Last year, Lucid received an investment of $ 1 billion from a Saudi sovereign wealth fund. And most recently, the company completed the first successful test of a prototype of its electric car.

“Our Lucid Air electric sedan is a new generation car,” said Peter Rawlinson, CEO. “He embodies all the achievements of the past few years, and, in particular, our power plant is now tested in races.” The Air prototype was already able to prove that it can move at a speed of 378 km / h.
