Lucid is set to reveal its second electric vehicle (EV) – the Gravity SUV – in the coming days, and has revealed more of its exterior design on social media in the interim.
YouTube channel Throttle House has posted a photo on Instagram in front of the rear quarter panel of a Lucid Gravity.
The vehicle has a two-tone paint job with large alloy wheels that are machine-finished. There’s also a Gravity wordmark on the D-pillar of the large electric SUV.
The new electric SUV from the US-based EV startup will be revealed on November 16 as part of this year’s Los Angeles motor show.
First previewed a year ago, reservations for the Gravity has been open to North American buyers since early 2023 ahead of customer deliveries starting in 2024. Confirmation of European and Middle Eastern deliveries will follow.
There’s no word yet on Australian launch for the brand, but a report earlier this year suggested right-hand drive production was on the cards.
The Gravity will be produced alongside the Air sedan at Lucid’s Casa Grande plant in Arizona, which is being expanded to accommodate the new vehicle.
At this stage no vehicle specifications have been revealed, however the company has made some bold claims about the SUV.
Lucid has said the Gravity will have “the driving dynamics of a sports car” and previously confirmed it’ll have air suspension.
The brand has also said it will offer better aerodynamics than any SUV in the world. For that it would have to beat the drag coefficient of 0.25 claimed by both the Tesla Model X and Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV.
Lucid promises the Gravity’s range will exceed anything else of the market, except for the company’s own Air.
Under the stricter US EPA test cycle, the Air offers between 660km and 830km of range depending on the variant.
The Model X, for context, offers a range of 536km (Plaid) or 560km (standard) on both the EPA and WLTP test cycles.
Expect the Air’s 900V electric architecture to carry over the the Gravity, which supports DC fast-charging at rates up to 300kW.
The Gravity will be available in either two- or three-row configurations, with “flexible” seating configurations for five, six or seven people.
More storage will be found in the “frunk” – or front trunk – while Lucid also promises bi-directional charging and available towing capacity.
The Gravity will also debut the next generation of Lucid’s Glass Cockpit high-resolution displays, which use the Lucid UX interface.
