The Gravity will be the second car from Lucid Motors, after the Air sedan
It will share the same platform as the Air
It should have a range of over 400 miles (644 kilometers)
Lucid Motors is just about to release its first model, the Air, and rumours are already starting on the company’s second vehicle, the Gravity Crossover.
The automaker has confirmed things are shaping up for a 2023 arrival of the Gravity, which will be an SUV with “respectable ground clearance” and a rugged look, but it will be designed to be a city-living SUV, not an off-roader.
Some teaser images have been published and they show a squared-off design that is very wide, wider than the Air in fact, but relatively short, not even an inch longer than the sedan.
Since it will share its mechanicals with the Air (which now holds the record for the best EV range), the Gravity is likely to benefit from the company’s tri-motor setup that produces 1,300 horsepower, as well as a battery that can provide a range higher than 400 miles (644 kilometers).
Since the company has hinted the Gravity will be more upscale than the Air, which already costs upwards of $77,000 in the United States ($95,000 in Canada), it will be a competitor for the most expensive vehicles of the segment, such as Range Rovers.
Lucid Motors apparently decided to launch a sedan first because they thought it would generate more interest in a market were every new vehicle seems to be an SUV, and the company reportedly doesn’t need to sell many vehicles at first to stay viable.
The executives at Lucid are already talking about products that could come after the Gravity, namely a line of more affordable vehicles built on a new platform, but also various electric products unrelated to the automobile.
