Intriguingly, Lucid guarantees the Gravity will supply “supercar ranges of efficiency”, implying that tempo will probably be a precedence. 

Additional info will probably be launched when Lucid begins taking reservations early subsequent yr, however it’s secure guess that will probably be priced to compete with equally positioned luxurious EVs from established marques, so count on the line-up to open at round $80,000 (£67,000) within the US.
