A new electric car is coming. This car will be unique in terms of its range. The car belongs to California start-up company Lucid Motors. Its name is Air Electric sedan. According to a report by The Sun, this car from Lucid Motors runs 517 miles (about 832 km) in full charge. Shipments of this car will start in 2021.
Speed of 100 km in 2.5 seconds
According to the report, the range of this car from Lucid Motors will be more than the top-end cars of Tesla. The company says that the Lucid Air electric car accelerates to 100 kmph in less than 2.5 seconds. Also, its top speed exceeds 200 miles per hour. Lucid had been working on this car for many years. The company announced on Tuesday that its new sedan would have an estimated range of 517 miles (832 km).
The price of this car can be so much
Lucid Motors CEO Peter Rawlinson says the Air Electric sedan will initially cost more than $ 100,000 (about Rs 75 lakh). Currently, the highest-range car is Tesla’s Model S, which runs over 400 miles (about 640 kilometers) in a single charge. The price of Tesla Model S sedan starts at $ 75,000 (about Rs. 56 lakhs).
The company will also install cheap variants of electric car
Lucid CEO Rawlinson said that the low-cost variants of this electric car will also come later. The company says that the range of this car has been verified in Independent Testing. He said that after Lucid Air, the company will bring an SUV in early 2023, which will be built on this vehicle platform. Tesla’s Model 3 has a range of about 518 kilometers. While the Jaguar I-Pace has a range of about 470 km in a single charge.
According to the company’s website, this car will be introduced on September 9, 2020, on the occasion of the 170th founding anniversary of California.
