            Make it bigger, put in more batteries => longer range. Easy. But the efficiency drops because the weight increases.
            There is also always a market for ugly cars. People want to own something different than their neighbour.
            But it's just a BEV, I think. No Autonomous Drive or even AutoPilot...
            No way! But I wish them success. We need as many BEV's as we can get.

            Hmmm... The design seems to be one part Subaru, two parts AUDI...? Not exactly BAD, I'd say. It just looks like it should be badged as 'ARENTAL' for Generic Motors.

            I actually used to sort of like the Subaru SVX:
            [​IMG]

            This is a 1996 Subaru Legacy:
            [​IMG]

            And here's the LUCID image I'm comparing them to:
            [​IMG]

            But apparently that was its best angle, as the LUCID AIR Sedan isn't so impressive otherwise:
            [​IMG]

            Idunno. It seems to be sort of running away from itself. Maybe longtime SAAB fans will like it?

              Apart from the opinion on the looks of the car, which will always be driven by personal preference (and I'm in a very similar spot as @Red Sage on this - great post #11 BTW!!) I really like this article which immediately dismisses the notion of 'T≡SLA killing', anticipates a response from Elon & friends and highlights the remaining key advantages of the overall T≡SLA offering to the world...! Yes, a new entrant is good and may they all be successful. The future market for BEV will be large enough and composed of enough taste (and budget!!) diversity to make more than a couple of carmakers succesful!!

              Yes. Definitely a good article. Balanced. Gives the good, the bad, and the ugly. Well written. I found the original article after reading it on Yahoo! here:
              http://www.thedrive.com/new-cars/6528/lucid-motors-reveals-their-tesla-killer-but-is-it-really

              Still not my style, but it is just this side of conservative on the interior, and just far enough to the 'different' side on the exterior to allow it to get those 'exclusive' level dollars from people looking for something that isn't in the driveways of 'everybody else' in the neighborhood.

              I realized that from that rear quarter view it reminds me of both the Toyota Venza and the original Chrysler Pacifica... Thus, I expect that though they attempted to diminish the effect on the AIR show car, the final version of the car will likely have massive blind spots at the rear.

              I really rather despise the presence of the longitudinal dividing wall between left and right sides of the car. I wish designers would find something else to do with that space, instead of presuming everyone needs an analog for a coffee table or ashtray lounge within a car.

              The photos that accompany the article do a good job of capturing flattering angles of unique features, without shocking you with the whole design at once. I get the impression the car might have been designed that way too, with a bunch of little pieces made to look good individually, that don't necessarily look quite as good when put together.

              It's nice that they opened up the cabin so much, and in the original article it seems no one error corrected the spelling as was done at Yahoo!, where the word FRUNK was changed to TRUNK instead. But it would have been nice to see a photo of the open frunk to accompany the one for the trunk.

              The website The DRIVE does have a YouTube channel, so I'll check that out to see if any further content is added in the next few days. Chris Harris used to write and do videos for them, but I think he is currently a sort of roving reporter for 'Top Gear' on BBC television instead now.

                  When it comes to their brand name, I get them impression that someone wanted to match T-E-S-L-A with a five letter, two syllable word that had two vowels and wasn't likely to offend. Hence, 'LUCID'. I wonder what other options they considered before changing their company name from 'ATIEVA'.

                  KWATT... too technical...
                  POWER... too plain...
                  VAPOR... too confrontational...
                  So maybe LUCID is not so bad after all...! :D

                    I was thinking TOTAL... But I think that might be one of the petroleum vendors that support ICE racing. I'm not sure.
