Hi Forum dwellers
CraZ8 from highland Falls NewYork. I put a deposit down on a Grand touring three weeks ago. I saw a dream edition at classic car club in Manhattan which intrigued me enough to visit the new showroom in the meat packing district downtown. I was impressed with the car and the experience. I’m not a newbie to EVs as I have been driving a model S performance for seven years ( two back to back purchases) I was planning to buy a plaid but the new interior was still not much of an upgrade from the old model s
I frankly am tired of making excuses for the interior of a 6 figure car as Spartan or minimalist or Swedish inspired. I just did not want to drive the same car for another 4 years. The lucids interior and amenities are some of the nicest I’ve seen, so here I am

If you are referring to tesla chargers it’s pretty well represented around me with about 5 superchargers within 25 miles and I’m assuming this will be available to all EVs with an adapter by the end of this year.As far as lucid available chargers Electrify America has one about 15 miles away and another in construction at about the same distance. With the range of the lucid being 517 miles( OK say opting for 21 inch rims, driving at 80 mph, using a heater or ac maybe a realistic range of 350-400) there is still enough juice to get where I’m going and find a supercharger on the way I’m sure

I was just thinking about your comment. We have to see about Lucid UX, but most EV plan your trip including charging. So, unlike gas, the car tells you where to stop. Does this happen all the time regardless if you have set a destination?

If you set up a destination Tesla takes you automatically where you need to charge to reach your destination.
You don't need to know the location, address of such location.
Also, because of weather or hilly travel if the vehicle notices that you can't reach your destination it tells you to slow down to xx mile/hour so that you can actually reach home or the next charging location.
It happened to me coming from AZ to San Diego. Due to extreme hot weather and mountain travel, the milage was used up quickly and asked me to slow down from 75m/hr to 45m/h so that I could reach home safely.

When are you getting yours? Did I ask you that already!

I am sure every owner of Lucid would enjoy.
Yes, out of Chicago, but we are planning to see Yosemite, Death Valley, Grand Canyon and Arches National Parks.
CHECK IT OUT-

Same here. As Tesla owner, I do not want to drive same stuff over and over so decide to order Lucid as second EV.

I talked to my sales rep yesterday about test drives. He said they were hoping for a car in a few weeks to a few months. I guess they don’t want us driving the preproduction fleet if there was tweaking to be done on the suspension and sound deadening. ( you get only one chance for a first impression) Also all the cars rolling off the line are the bespoke dreams going to anxiously waiting owners so do we have to wait for GT production for fleet cars? I hope not as that will be December at best.

It would make sense that the test drive cars should be Air GT since this will be going forward the only retail car available. I don't understand why you'd tease buyers with a car they cannot obtain? If you're on the Dream reservation list I get it, just be mindful this group only makes up at the most 6% of Lucid owners. A number that hopefully keeps going down as more of the AGT, AT and Pure are sold.

A Dream is basically the same as a Grand Touring Range with 133 extra hp. If you leave the drive mode in the two lower settings you won’t have access to that additional horsepower anyway. Why not make a dozen or so of these to be used as demonstrators at the various design centers for the next 4 months to boost orders before GT production then they can be relegated to senior executive cars?
