Tesla’s most serious rival will arrive in France this year

The Californian brand Lucid Motors has finally taken off. A few weeks after the Air model was released in the United States, the manufacturer confirmed its arrival in Europe. This was planned from the launch of the vehicle, in 2020 in New York, without further details. The details are not yet known for the fifteen countries concerned, including France, but the deadline is approaching. Indeed, it was on Twitter that Peter Rawlinson’s brand confirmed that the expansion to the European market would take place this year.

More power and more range than Tesla

This announcement comes as the Lucid Air has just received the title of car of the year from the prestigious American magazine Motor Trend. The magazine’s jury hailed ” the technological tour de force realized by the engineers of Lucid Motors who managed to achieve a rare combination of power (1111 hp) and range (653 km) on the Dream edition of the vehicle. It is also this recipe that makes the success of the brand in the United States and which could seduce European customers. On the other hand, the latter will not have access to this famous Dream finish. Only the Pure, Touring and Grand Touring versions will be sold on the Old Continent.

Reservations for the first model of Lucid Motos are already open on the manufacturer’s website. In France, you must agree to a refundable deposit of 300 euros to block an entry-level model. This amount increases to 900 euros for the Touring and Grand Touring versions. As for the real prices of the vehicles, they are still not known. But again, the suspense should not be very long.
