Taking a unique approach to the drivetrain, the Lucid motor and transmission have been designed as a integrated system. Entirely developed by Lucid, the resulting solution is smaller, more efficient and more power-dense than competitors, while potentially more reliable.




Autonomous driving and active safety systems both increase convenience and reduce everyday accident risk. Lucid vehicles will be delivered autonomous-ready with a comprehensive sensor suite able to scale to complete autonomy through ongoing software upgrades.




Nearly ten years of battery pack development have led to best-in-class energy density. Our battery is capable of 1,000 horsepower and enabling up to 400 miles of range. Additionally, a unique battery chemistry provides breakthrough tolerance to repeated fast-charging.




Packaging perfection allows for unprecedented comfort via rear executive seats with up to 55 degrees of recline. This luxury option offers a first-class aircraft seating experience.
