Lucid Motors is keeping a low profile about its upcoming Gravity SUV, despite teasing the vehicle last November. Gravity has made great strides in its production and is now testing on US public roads. The latest photos of Gravity’s testing reveal it in camouflage with a space theme, despite Lucid revealing the car at the end of last season. Details on the startup’s upcoming SUV are still scarce.
2024 Lucid Gravity Electric Vehicle Review
The Gravity is expected to offer seating for seven people and features a more advanced version of the Glass Cockpit. This will be accompanied by an updated Lucid UX system. The company claims that the luxury SUV’s driving dynamics will be on par with those of sports cars, and its electric range will be better than any other EV SUV sold today.
We don’t know any performance numbers, so we can only go by Lucid’s words. The Gravity is expected to have the same range of power options available on the Air. This includes three levels ranging between 480 horsepower and 1050 horses for the Grand Touring Performance.
We think that the Gravity sedan will have many of the same specs as the Air when it is produced. According to EPA estimates, the Air currently has the longest driving range of any electric car on the market. Air Grand Touring had the longest range of all the EVs we tested at 75 mph. The Air Grand Touring can also add up to 300 miles in less than 20 minutes by plugging into a rapid charger. Gravity’s impressive range will be hampered by the added weight and size of an SUV, but if Lucid’s first attempt at the Gravity is any indication, it will offer plenty to enjoy.
According to the timeline given by Lucid in November last year, the configurator for Gravity and the ordering books should open in 2023. Production is expected to start in 2024. Lucid was contacted for confirmation of this timeline. We will update the story if they respond.
Lucid confirmed that the Gravity would be an SUV. The Gravity will be available in two- or three-row configurations, with seating for up to 7 passengers. Lucid promises a spacious cargo space with a trunk. The brand claims it is the most aerodynamic vehicle to ever hit the market.
Lucid has proven its range in a sedan. They plan to do the same with an SUV. We expect that Gravity’s range will be less than the Air’s. Lucid still claims that it will be the longest-range electric SUV available, meaning more than the Tesla Model X’s 348-mile maximum range.
According to Lucid, Gravity will have the next-generation Lucid user interface. The Gravity will feature a “glass cockpit” with high-resolution displays and an “intuitive and elegant software interface.”
2024 Lucid Gravity Electric Vehicle Price & Release Date
Lucid confirmed the Gravity was in preproduction and prototypes were testing on public roads. The brand has confirmed that we’ll see the EV SUV in 2023, but no specific date has been given. It will be available in 2024.
We do not know. Lucid hasn’t announced pricing or trim levels for Gravity yet. We expect that it will begin at least a little higher than the Air. The Air starts at $87400 for the Pure base model and goes up to $107400 for other trims.
