Lucid Motors is currently selling the Air, a large electric sedan
The second model, which will be called Gravity, will be a smaller SUV that will be launched in two years
Automaker believes 3,000 and 4,000 horsepower cars will be available in three to four years
Lucid Motors recently unveiled its plans for the future and predicts a model that will compete with the Tesla Model Y in the hotly contested mid-size SUV segment.
The young company launched the Air electric sedan a few months ago and is currently developing its second model.
This next SUV, called Gravity, was previously announced, but now we know it will compete with the Tesla Model Y and other midsize electric crossovers on the market.
According to one of the automaker’s executives, this model will have the same advantages as the Air over its competitors, which means it could have more interior space, more power and more range than any other SUV from its category.
It is important to remember that the Lucid Air now holds the record for the longest electric range of a production vehicle and that it was the first (and the only one to date) to cross the bar of 805 kilometers of autonomy.
That will apparently remain the brand’s biggest selling point, meaning expect the Gravity to have a lot more range than any current electric SUV.
Another selling point could also be performance, as the Lucid Air is currently one of the most powerful vehicles on the market, with peak power reaching 1,111 horsepower in the limited-production Dream Edition model.
The same executive also said that his company does not see the end of the power war that is currently taking place between manufacturers of high-end electric vehicles and he believes that cars with 3,000 and 4,000 horsepower will be available as soon as three or four years.
It’s unlikely that the Lucid Gravity will have that much power when it hits the market in about two years, but that does suggest it will be positioned at the top of its segment in terms of power.
