It's a sexy car, no doubt.

I wonder if the base model is lower than the S due to the S being almost alone in its class, with full reign of market space.

Lucid is also coming into a market that's been proven to exist with the S, and perhaps isn't as worried about lackluster sales requiring a higher per-car sticker.

Looks interesting, but it doesn't look like a killer of anything to me at this point.

Seems there is a fair amount of new hardware coming out. And plenty of it is quick, if not downright fast laugh

I think the Lucid will work. But the reclining rear seats will eat the truck space down to nothing ...

Like the 2019 Porsche laugh

The single most important feature about a plug-in electric vehicle is how long does it take for it to receive a replenish charge when on a highway trip. Touring efficiency if you will. No one wants to stop and cool their jets for two hours every 300 miles or so, and have to intricately plan their route to include sparsely available charging points.

Range anxiety.

And fast charge wrecks the batteries...Tesla limit how many Kwh you can pump in at 120KW, before dropping it to 90 and below.

You read the comments? The guy that was involved in the build posted there. It's a Model S donor powertrain into a GM truck chassis and was built to do brewery tours apparently. The owners plan on putting rooftop solar on it to aide in charging it.
