Lucid Motors ensures that there is no shortage of a necessary element to mount a self-contained level 5 car: radar, lidar, cameras.

The electric propulsion system distributes power in two engines, one for each train, and is able to develop a power of 1000CV.

Imagine the benefits that can be achieved, similar to the Model S fattest, the P100D. For now the 0 to 100 swallows it in 2.5 seconds.

Possibly the most important in these projects are not pure and hard benefits, but autonomy. There will be two battery configurations – 100 and 130 kWh – both arrivals factories Samsung.
