Lucid’s SUV, Codenamed Project Gravity, Is Set For Launch In 2023

The Lucid Gravity could become the SUV with the longest range and quickest acceleration times when it launches.


  • It will be built on the LEAP platform, or the same one as the Air.

  • The Lucid Air sedan breaks cover this evening.

  • Will likely be as luxurious and powerful.


Lucid’s been on something of a roll this past summer. Every week, they released new pieces of information on their anticipated Air sedan, all of which will culminate this evening at the official reveal. At the same time, Lucid was working on their planned SUV, known as Project Gravity, and got some financial backing from the Saudi Wealth Fund to help build their factory in Arizona.

We know nearly everything about the car at the moment and we’ve received confirmation that the SUV will share the Air’s platform. More than likely, this also means that powertrain configurations and output will be identical or very similar. As far as range is concerned, we expect that it will drop slightly for the SUV.

A member of the lucidowners.com forums shared images of the Air and the SUV and quite frankly, the Air looks very much production-ready, as does the “Gravity”. In fact, although the Air will be produced first, many might put their orders on hold and wait for the fairly attractive-looking SUV.

The Lucid Air will be introduced this evening and we expect that Lucid will also introduce the SUV, as hinted in their recent Instagram post.
