The brand’s second model will share some of its design with the Air electric sedan.
Lucid says the Gravity will offer more range than any electric SUV currently on the market.
Production is expected to begin late next year in Arizona.
Earlier this week, Lucid Motors confirmed that the Gravity SUV, its second model ever, will be fully unveiled in November.
This upcoming product has been expected for a while now since a prototype was spotted on the road all the way back in 2020 and the company started teasing it last year.
Based on the same platform as the Air, the Gravity also appears to share many of the sedan’s styling cues, such as its front lightbar and horizontal headlamps.
The automaker hasn’t said much about the Gravity’s mechanical elements, but the LEAP platform on which it will be built can support two motors and a large battery, for a maximum output of over 1,200 horsepower and range estimates over 500 miles (805 kilometres) on the Air.
Of course, the Gravity will be larger, heavier, and less aerodynamic than the sedan, which means its maximum range is expected to be shorter. Nevertheless, Lucid claims this model will benefit from more range than any electric SUVs currently on the market.
While this has not been confirmed, the Gravity could also be more powerful than any other production electric SUV since it could receive a high-performance variant like the Air Sapphire, which generates 1,234 horsepower.
Inside, buyers will be able to choose between three seating configurations that will be suitable for five, six, or seven passengers in three rows.
A glass roof and a new-generation infotainment system have also been hinted at by Lucid in recent communications.
The company is expected to begin taking reservations for the Gravity following its public debut in November, but production is not scheduled to start before the second half of 2024, at which point the SUV will join the sedan on the assembly line in Arizona.
