A Private Jet On Four Wheels


Lucid Motors took the wraps off its luxury, high-tech car dubbed Lucid Air recently. The vehicle which is expected to be priced around $160,000 is aimed to be "a private jet on four wheels."

The Lucid Air includes twin electric motors front and rear that combine to produce a staggering 1,000 horsepower; a wide array of Lidar, radar and cameras to enable autonomous driving; and a range of 300 miles that can be increased to 400.

The front seat area features a series of screens that project driver-related data. Lucid has an initial production target of 10,000 vehicles, eventually ramping up to 60,000 "in three or four years," says head of marketing Zak Edson.
