The car has three design principles – space, energy and time. The car is built entirely on these principles. The electric car platform is non-conventional. Hence, you can do many more creative things in the electric cars. Lucid Motors have taken the advantage of this non-conventional platform to design a luxurious electric sedan by creating a new class of electric cars.

 Lucid Air: Space

This car is a fully-electric luxury car. So it’s entirely free from the constraints of a traditional gasoline engine. The absence of the gasoline engine creates more space. So, it is more spacious for the same dimensions. The length of the car is less than Mercedes S550L and BMW 750Li. However, it has more space than both of them. The space advantage is real in the electric cars as the number of components is less than the traditional cars. Lucid Air takes the advantage of the same.
