Lucid Air vs Tesla

So what do you guys think about the Lucid Air? Apparently it starts at around $52K with 400 horsepower (after federal tax credit). This could make it stronger than the base model S and it is bigger than the Model 3 and looks better, though the exterior styling is a little odd. The top line version is superior to the model s with 1000 horsepower and is faster to 60 than the P100D and potentially better range. There's also a demo car that was demonstrated to exceed 200 MPH. It seems these EV's keep getting better and hopefully more affordable. I'm looking to maybe get an EV at some point but not sure when I'll do it.

True for straight line speed. Put it on a track and M will eat it.

I like the design of the Lucid a lot, but that Porsche is absolutely stunning.

Good idea. 400 mile range, affordable. Look for the government rebates to vanish any day now though. That's a last administration tax on us that's surely on the chopping block.
