Default AIR CONCEPT from LUCID (formerly known as Atieva)

google didn't show another thread and the article says "concept" so...
...sorry I'm too spacey to post in right section


Lucid Air Unveiled With Stunning Design, 1,000 HP And 400 Mile Range
CarScoops

Dec 14, 2016 | By Brad Anderson

Electric automaker startup Lucid Motors has just taken the covers off its very first model, dubbed the Air.

Teased on multiple occasions in recent months, the Lucid Air will directly target top-of-the-range Tesla Model S versions and a number of ICE executive sedans. Priced from around $160,000 in the U.S., it doesn't come cheap but does promise a lot.

For starters, the Lucid Air is powered by two electric motors, one driving the front wheels and one powering the rear, making for a grand total of 1,000 hp. Customers then have the option between a 100 kWh or 130 kWh battery pack, the latter of which provides a range of up to 400 miles on a single charge...

Moved to concepts

While it does look pretty daringand almost futuristic, the price will put this out of the reach of many people. Sure a cheaper $65K model will eventually launch but even then, still not sure how many people will opt for an such an expensive car.

That being said, the styling is a bit generic and one could plausibly stick any brand on the front and it would work.

Looks good. Calling a design generic, is inaccurate. We are so used to 'emblems', that anything without an emblem is generic. Hopefully more generic cars are going to come, and with this more diversity. 'Emblems' prevent diversity.

Probably vaporware, but hey, they say it's real!

But it does look generic, there is nothing that distinguishes it from other concepts that could be released by say a design house like Pininfarina or Bertone.

i want to know if they just keep cramming more heavy batteries into this or if they actually made more efficient batteries than Tesla, and the overall car weighs less. that's what would be impressive. I'm sure the 1000hp rating is similar to what got Tesla in trouble, where the engines combined output was added although in reality they can't make that power simultaneously.

I'm confused--isn't this being touted as the production version?

Generic means non-identifiable, it does not mean "the same".

I never said it was the same, the styling could be transferred to any other brand if you stick a new grill on it, example, Citroen and one could easily convince someone that it's another iteration of the cxperience concept.

Still going to call it generic, just like a generic drug is not identifiable as any brand name, neither is this car imo.
