2018 Lucid Motors Air Spotted In San Francisco

 

Originally published on CleanTechnica.

The recently unveiled Lucid Motors “Air” is a beautiful car (beautiful as far as cars go, anyways), but we’ve yet to see much of it in the wild (outside of promos and car shows), leaving those with a potential interest perhaps a bit hungry for more media.

With that in mind, one of the company’s all-electric prototypes was recently spotted in San Francisco, so it seems worth reposting media of that here. Here’s a video:

The prototype was apparently in San Francisco for a promo shoot, in anticipation of a marketing push that’s expected to begin later this year, going on unnamed sources that spoke to Teslarati.

Here’s more from that coverage:

“The Silicon Valley-based electric car maker, headquartered less than 10 miles away from Palo Alto-based Tesla, began taking online reservations for its ultra-luxury 4-door sedan last year and expected to make a large marketing push in the coming months. Putting test mules on the streets follows the typical design cycle that Tesla used when refining the Model S and Model X ahead of its official public launch.

“The design of Lucid’s Air fairs well against the San Francisco architecture. Designed from the ground up to be a 400-mile range electric car with all wheel drive, it’s exciting to be able to see Lucid’s Air coming to life.”

I can’t disagree — it’s a good looking sedan.

In related news, the company recently released a new teaser video via Twitter that I may as well post here as well. The teaser doesn’t really add much, but may still be of interest to some of those reading this.
