Jay Leno has a test drive of the new 2022 Lucid Air Dream up on Jay Leno's Garage. Lucid is a new auto startup out of Arizona. They are set to deliver about 500 vehicles this year with a ~$95,000 price tag. That's still a pretty hefty price point, but should be interesting to see how they compete against Tesla. They have designed their own "miniature" electric motors.

Also, an interesting comment from the Lucid exec during the test drive...Ford is now selling a "crate" electric motor. I wonder if that will spur some interesting retrofits, like the one below...

They have a lot of potential. They have poached some of the best engineers from Tesla and other companies. Their production facilities will continue to improve. The plant in Casa Grande is huge and rolling cars off. Once they start production of their cheaper model to directly compete with Tesla on price things could get interesting.

I am not a car guy at all but for some reason enjoy these guys out of Canada who do reviews. They did the Lucid last month

A better car than the Model S, but also far more expensive. Like a mix of MS and the new Mercedes EV.

Looking forward to their tri-motor and SUV
