Or rather, with regard to the pedigree of this team of France, they know where it will be necessary to get the precious sesame.

The all-electric Lucid Gravity crossover was first announced by the startup last September along with the premiere of the Lucid Air electric sedan. Apparently, the production version of the SUV will look completely identical to the prototype, which is not surprising – the situation with the Lucid Air was exactly the same. It’s too early to talk about the technical characteristics of the new item, but we should expect that the model will show a power reserve of up to 800 kilometers on a single charge, fast charging and will be able to go from 10 seconds to a quarter of a mile.

Electric-vehicle manufacturer Lucid Motors is working on the Project Gravity SUV concept, which is expected to share much of its underpinnings with the just-revealed Air sedan. We expect it as a 2022 or 2023 model, so those yearning for a gorgeously designed, long-range electric SUV in the vein of the gorgeously-designed, long-range Lucid Air sedan will have to wait. Pricing and Which One to Buy. Lucid has made no mention of the Gravity 's price tag or trim levels yet—and the company probably won't for some time—but we're guessing it will cost slightly more than the Air to start and offer a

We won't really know about the Lucid Air until customers get their hands on the first production models, with first deliveries scheduled for later this month. Early reviews are promising, and the company says its second act is on track for release in 2023. That's the Gravity crossover, which will be built on the same platform as the Air, the Lucid Electric Advanced Platform (LEAP). VP of Design Derek Jenkins told Automotive News that the Gravity will be a thematic complement to the sedan as a city-living SUV, with a "strength and robustness" to its design and "respectable ground clearance," but it won't be "a rock-crawler."

  2023 Mercedes-AMG GT63 S E Performance Has 831 Horsepower The first plug-in hybrid from AMG uses a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 and an electric motor on the rear axle, and it'll arrive in the U.S. for the 2023 model year. The 2023 Mercedes-AMG GT63 S E Performance is the first of AMG's plug-in-hybrid models, which will also include the next AMG C-class. It's powered by a twin-turbo V-8 paired with an electric motor on the rear axle, and it has 831 horsepower and 1082 pound-feet of torque. It will arrive in the Mercedes-AMG has just revealed the first in its new product lineup of E Performance plug-in-hybrids. It’s called the GT63 S E Performance.

This Project Gravity name suggests the vehicle in the teasers is a concept version of the planned SUV. But considering the production version of the Air looks almost identical to its own concept version shown in 2017, it's safe to assume Lucid 's SUV headed to showrooms will closely resemble the shadowy one shown here. In an interview with Green Car Reports published in August, Lucid CEO and CTO Peter Rawlinson said the company was working on an SUV based on the same platform as the Air, and that production would start in early 2023 .

  Lucid Gravity crossover on track for 2023 release

We've seen the Gravity in European patent filings, in surreptitious shots from a video shoot for the Air, and in teaser images from Lucid. The crossover's relation to the sedan is clear, and it wears Lucid's design language just as well. Rumor has it the Gravity will be wider than the Air (!), but less than an inch longer.

The Air separated itself from the pack by being a sedan in a crossover world, and on top of that, an electric sedan in a year of electric pickups and SUVs. Lucid did that because it doesn't need enormous volume relative to the entire industry to be successful, and a sedan with amazing specs would be more impressive than a crossover with merely good specs. The Gravity, however, will be rolling onto the market with a number of other electric people haulers — the Ford Explorer and Hyundai Ioniq 7 on the mass-market end, for instance, the design-led Volvo XC90 Recharge, the Cadillac Escalade EV, Jeep Wagoneer electric, Mercedes EQS SUV, Lincoln, Lexus, and Range Rover EV crossovers on the luxury end. Jenkins suggested the Gravity could be more upscale than the Air, which sounds like a Range Rover fighter to us.

Under the codename Project Gravity , the Lucid SUV is coming to market in 2023 as a large, luxury electric crossover . Utilizing the Lucid Electric Advanced Platform (LEAP), we expect the Gravity to feature identical powertrains to the Air, with outputs of 480, 620, 800, and 1,080 horsepower derived from dual electric motors powering all four wheels. With the added weight and size of the Lucid SUV, we expect performance to take a slight hit, with 0-60 mph coming up in a little more than the Air’s 2.5-second blast and a top speed quite likely to be less than 168 mph in the most potent model.

Lucid has already teased the design of the Gravity with its Project Gravity concept shown last year in a video. The design in the patent drawings is almost identical, though the front overhang looks to be longer. The closeness of the two designs shouldn't come as a surprise as the production Air ended Gravity production should take place at the same plant in Casa Grande, Arizona, where pre-production versions of the Air are already being built. There's also talk of Lucid possibly opening a plant in Saudi Arabia. The Saudi government is the biggest investor in Lucid , having purchased a controlling stake

So far, though, only the Gravity among them will be offered with a mid-range dual-motor 1,080-horsepower powertrain. A tri-motor package lifts horsepower to about 1,300 ponies. CEO Peter Rawlinson having said the Gravity will deliver similar efficiency and performance as the Air, Jenkins saying the vehicle has to have exceptional range, which "means 400 miles plus" since it will "be a family workhorse in a lot of cases."

Lucid's already working on what comes after the Gravity as well, including another platform for vehicles at a lower price point, and a range of electric goods over the next decade that start with LEAP technology but span "a whole range of product possibilities," even those beyond automobiles.
