Lucid wants to Target the Tesla Model Y with its Second Model

Lucid is working on an upcoming electric SUV and it revealed a little about its plans for the future.

  • Lucid Motors currently makes the Air, a large electric sedan

  • The second model, to be called Gravity, will be a smaller crossover that will launch in two years

  • The automaker believes 3,000 and 4,000 horsepower cars will be available in three to four years

Lucid Motors revealed plans for its future recently and they call for a model that will compete with the Tesla Model Y in the hotly contested mid-size SUV segment.

The start-up company launched the Air electric sedan a couple of months ago and it is now developing its second model.

This upcoming SUV, called Gravity, had already been teased but we now know it will compete with the Tesla Model Y and the other mid-size electric crossovers on the market.

According to one of the automaker’s executives, this model will feature the same advantages as the Air over its competition, which means it could have more interior space, more power, and more range than any other SUV in its class.

It is important to remember that the Lucid Air now holds the record for the longest electric range in a production vehicle and it was the first (and only as of now) to break past the 500-mile (805 kilometer) range mark.

This will apparently remain the brand’s main selling point, which means that the Gravity should be expected to have a lot more range than any current electric SUV.

Another selling point could also be performance, since the Lucid Air is currently one of the most powerful vehicles on sale, with a maximum output that can reach 1,111 horsepower in the limited production Dream Edition model.

The same executive even said that his company doesn’t see an end to the horsepower war that is currently going on between makers of high-end electric vehicles and he believes 3,000 and 4,000 horsepower cars will be available as soon as in three to four years.

The Lucid Gravity is unlikely to have this much power when it arrives on the market in about two years’ time, but this hints that it will be positioned in the upper end of its segment in terms of output.
