Lucid Motors confirms pre-production version of new model will be shown on September 9

Lucid Motors has shown for the first time a teaser image of its second electric model, a crossover based on the Air sedan. Previously, we only saw a spy photo of this car.

The company also officially confirmed that the premiere of new items in one form or another will take place on September 9. Earlier, the CEO of Lucid, Peter Rawlinson, spoke about such a possibility, who argued that this was not a model, but a running prototype, which was already being tested.

Actually, the protagonist of the presentation on September 9 should not be a crossover, but a serial version of the Air sedan. That electric car promises to be the best in the world in aerodynamics, power reserve, charging speed and acceleration. True, and the price of Lucid Air is likely to be the highest among all production electric sedans.

The crossover will follow the same principles, Rawlinson said. That is, it will also have to become the most energy efficient, long-range and most dynamic electric vehicle in its class, surpassing the current leader Tesla Model X.

The startup has been preparing its electric vehicles since 2014, but only this year should the construction of the first Lucid plant in Arizona be completed and production begin. Following the expensive top-end models, the brand promises to prepare more affordable electric vehicles.
