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-
