For the longest time I was considering a Model S as my first EV but that was until I saw the Air. The design drew me in because I think it looks so much better than the Model S but what sold me are the incredible performance numbers. I need to see the car in person first but I think the Air is going to be what converts me to EVs.

Welcome to the forum!

I guess we're all "Air Heads" haha.

Any idea when/where we'll be able to see one in person?

I hope by September 2021, we shall see; you have an 8 month lead on me so let us know when you get yours. Good news is that the final production test cars are being evaluated now.

I briefly considered the Tesla Model S or Y. I rented a Tesla using Turo when we were in Orlando on vacation. Had I not had two friends who own Tesla and the YouTube videos I doubt I would have been able to get it out of the parking garage. I was OK on the styling but I knew I wanted to buy an EV. When I saw the Lucid Air, I immediately planned to get one. I liked the Lincoln Continental that has been discontinued. I like the level of luxury of the Audi A8 and Mercedes. I am looking forward to this luxury EV.

Welcome @dawktah LucidGT! When you say that "I doubt I would have been able to get it out of the parking garage" with Tesla what issues did you have?

Most cars have a gear stalk or lever, that is intuitive. The Tesla you have to click the stalk down. If you just press it down it goes into Neutral. There is no indicator on it to give this info. New Model S has no stalk. Clearly not a car for us baby boomers (I'm 56) without a prerequisite course, LOL. Not to mention "creep" and regenerative braking.

I would definitely be annoyed with that as well. Sometimes I think Tesla does things for the sake of being "clever" rather than doing the things that makes the most sense.
