So happy to have this forum. Great info as I have little knowledge on evs. Just reserved a touring in Quantum Grey. Live in Manhattan and have a vacation house a couple of hours outside the city. I will install a charger at my vacation home and hope I won't have to worry about charging in the city. I sometimes go up to three weeks before going to my home and hope the charge will hold.

Nice. You should be fine. When I lived in Greenwich Village I sold my car and didn't buy a car again until I moved out. I used the subway, cabs and walking. My guess is that you are not using your car a lot (I sometimes jumped in a cab to go uptown and often ended up paying off the cabby around Herald Square and getting in the subway...traffic made using a car just too damned slow).

My only concern is size when you are using it in Manhattan. My current car, a BMW 5 series, is fine where I live (Scottsdale AZ) and is approximately the same size as the Lucid Air. But in NYC's tight spaces, it will be a challenge.

Thanks. Yeah, I won't be driving much in the court and fortunately have an indoor space. Just how I won't have to worry about losing charge.

Thanks. Yeah, I don't use my car much in the city. Lucky enough to have an indoor parking spot. Just hoping I don't lose too much battery life as it sits idle.

About 0.75% /24 hrs depending on weather. I lose about 0.25%/24 hrs in southern California in a garage.

My garage in NYC has a Tesla destination charging station which I use from time to time. I believe there is a converter so the Lucid can be charged. I understand there are quite a few Tesla chargers in garages. Perhaps they would put one in. Even a regular plug is better than nothing. I'm guessing you will need to top off the car from time to time unless you visit your vacation home during all seasons.
