One article said that there hard dedicated hard buttons for temp control and fan speed (and radio volume?)!!! YES!!!
The S-Class interior to be is very ostentatious (not in a bad way). The Lucid interior looks more like it was meant to be useable, rather than to be impress your passengers.

Yes! The design is both retro and futuristic, which is quite an accomplishment. I like it overall and, if I had the $, I think I might prefer something that's clearly "special" w/o as "obvious" attention getting as an S-Class, 7-Series, etc.
As far as the Zenith roof goes (I think the name Opel gave to its version?).... I like the idea but wonder how useful it will be in practice. I sit upright enough that sunroofs don't do much for me b/c I can't "see" it while driving. A Zenith roof doesn't have that issue, but I imagine the glare from the sun when driving westbound in the afternoon would be... blinding (unless there's some sort of glass-opacity control). I'm also a bit worried about rollover integrity.
It will be very interesting to see if the lower priced variants can capture market share from Tesla. This Lucid seems almost too conventional to do so.
