Lucid Says its New Electric Car Can Outlast Tesla on Single Charge
Luxury electric car manufacturer Lucid is set to give Tesla a run for its money with a new set of wheels the company says will be an industry leader in miles per charge.
The Lucid Air will get an estimated 517 miles per charge, the company recently announced. That would outlast the Tesla Model S Long Range Plus, the current industry leader that gets about 402 miles per charge, according to Jalopnik.
California-based Lucid credits engineering and proprietary technology for the long-distance battery capacity.
“I believe that our 900-volt architecture, our race-proven battery packs, miniaturized motors, and power electronics, integrated transmission systems, aerodynamics, chassis, and thermal systems, software, and overall system efficiency have now reached a stage where they collectively set a new standard and deliver a host of ‘world’s firsts,’” Lucid Chief Executive Officer Peter Rawlinson said in a statement announcing the charging power.
Lucid expects to begin production on the cars in Arizona in the coming months and begin shipping vehicles to customers in Spring 2021. The Lucid air comes with an expected price tag in the $100,000 range.
Legal Rights for California Car Owners
The Lucid news is a testament to the power of advances in technology and engineering. But it comes at a time when many of the world’s largest and best-known car manufacturers are still having a lot of trouble putting safe cars on the road.
Car companies recall millions of vehicles each year for a wide range of defects, from seat belt and steering snafus to exploding airbags. These problems can not only leave cars at risk of breaking down but also pose serious safety hazards for everyone on the road.
That is where the California lemon law comes in. The Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act requires car manufacturers to perform certain repairs on vehicles while they are under warranty. The law also forces a company that is not willing or unable to fix a covered car to buy the vehicle back or replace it.
The lemon law additionally obligates a car manufacturer to pick up the bill for any legal fees that an owner incurs enforcing his or her rights.
