Lucid is determined to beat Tesla by adding another SUV weapon to its arsenal

Lucid Motors is determined to beat Tesla and in order to do that, the company is working on a new SUV called Gravity.

According to Lucid, it will be faster than most supercars.

Just like the Air sedan, the Gravity will rely on performance and range to beat its main rivals.

As things stand, the best-performing Lucid in the line-up offers 520 miles of range.

And Lucid says the Gravity SUV will have “more range than any other EV on the market” except for the air.

CHECK THIS OUT!

We don’t know what sort of powertrain it’ll use, but we do know that the range-topping Air delivers 1,200 hp from its tri-motor electric powertrain.

The Gravity will probably be available with an upgraded version of that electric engine.

The cabin will be spacious and lavish.

It will be available in either a two or three-row configuration, with five or seven seats.

The Glass Canopy roof is the best part here, giving you a wonderful uninterrupted view of the sky as you enjoy the ride.

The Lucid Gravity will be unveiled next year, and deliveries are scheduled for 2024.

But what about the Lucid Gravity SUV price?

Well, the Lucid Air starts at $87,400, while the Tesla Model S starts at around $106,000.

Considering the Tesla Model X SUV starts at $120,990, we can expect the Gravity to come in with a starting price somewhere between $95,000 and $105,000.

About Lucid Motors

The expression ‘Tesla Killer’ has been used to address a long list of EV makers and on the face of it, Lucid Motors deserves the title more than most.

Lucid Air was off to a shaky start when it was first founded as a start-up in 2007 under a different name.

It took the company a long time and several prototypes but in 2021, it finally began delivering its first vehicle.

The car was well received, both critically and commercially, and Lucid Motors went public with a so-called special-purpose acquisition company (SPAC).

After the Lucid Air sedan and the Lucid Gravity SUV, hopefully we’ll see a supercar at some point.
