California startup Lucid Motors claims that its upcoming electric Air sedan will cover 517 miles, or 832 kilometers, in one charge. In this case, he will dethrone the current king – the Tesla Model S Long Range with a range of up to about 646 kilometers.According to available information, the production version of Air should be officially announced in September. The start of the first deliveries is then scheduled for the beginning of next year.However, Lucid Motors CEO Peter Rawlinson likes to say that he considers himself an ally of Tesla and not a direct competitor.“The world is big enough for us to prosper and thrive side by side,” he told Ars Technica in a June interview. “Please don’t call us a Tesla killer.” In connection with the above-mentioned commute, Rawlinson made it clear that he was proud of his company’s success to date. “Such exceptional efficiency, achieved with the help of our own technology, is undoubtedly a measure of a real EV technology company,” he said, among other things.
