Lucid Gravity SUV Features and Price saves Time to Give Up on Lucid Company.

The Lucid company product pipeline with its upcoming Lucid Gravity crossover is another reason not to give up on Lucid just yet, the company is scheduled to launch its second vehicle, the Gravity crossover with the new offering starting under $80,000.

One could argue the biggest hurdle for Lucid so far has been selling only it’s one vehicle, the Air sedan. Part of the difficulty in selling the vehicle is certainly its starting price tag of around $170,000. That price tag puts Lucid’s only sellable product in a very high-end niche market, one that was quickly saturated.

But later in 2024, the company is scheduled to launch its second vehicle, the Gravity crossover. The new offering starts under $80,000, which gives the company access to a broader consumer base. However, it’s fair to note that this is still a fairly high price point, and it might not generate the demand needed at a time when other EV companies are trying to push prices down into the $30,000 range to tap into the mainstream consumer.

Gravity crossover features

If you’ve seen the Lucid Air, you have an idea about the overall design of the Lucid Gravity. The car is sleek and stylish, and while it’s not the most unique-looking car out there, it’s clearly a premium car overall.

On the front of the Gravity can be found two slim headlights and a swooping hood that arcs across the front. The side profile of the car slopes down toward the back, where you’ll find a rear light bar. In most color options, there’s a two-tone look, which some will love and others won’t.

In some ways, the Gravity looks simply like a taller version of the Air — but again, that’s not a bad thing. It’s not the most revolutionary design, but it still looks quite good.

The interior of the Lucid Gravity is premium too. There’s a nice stitched leather that in most of the images is a saddle brown.

Like in the Lucid Air, there are two displays at the front of the car. There’s one super-wide display that stretches along the front for lights and wipers, instrument monitoring, and mapping, and a secondary display that can be used for climate controls, driving modes, and other settings. This particular dual-display setup is somewhat unique to the Lucid Gravity and Lucid Air, and having driven the Air, I can say it’s relatively intuitive and easy to get used to.

The Gravity is, of course, more roomy than the Air — to the point where it offers three rows of seats. There’s also a center console for storage in between the two front seats, and a pair of tables can fold out from the front seats for the second-row passengers.

Lucid Gravity models

The Lucid Air came in a number of different models, and it’s entirely possible that the Gravity will eventually be available in a multiple trim levels too. Lucid has yet to announce the trim levels for the car, so we can only speculate.

If the Gravity is like the Air, it could come in a base “Pure” trim, ranging up to the Touring, Grand Touring, Dream Edition, and Sapphire packages. If those trims are planned, it’s unlikely they’ll all be released at launch — after all, Lucid only just recently launched the Lucid Air Sapphire.

Lucid Gravity range and charging speed

The Lucid Air is known for its excellent range, and thankfully, that continues with the Lucid Gravity. The Lucid Gravity, according to Lucid, will have a range of more than 440 miles — and while we do expect that figure to be for the highest-range models, even the base model will likely have a better range than most other electric cars out there. We’ll have to wait and see, though.

The charging speed will be excellent too. Lucid says that the Gravity will get up to 200 miles of range in 15 minutes via a 350-kilowatt charging station. That means that the Gravity will be one of the fastest-charging cars out there today, and will be able to take full advantage of the faster charging stations.

Lucid Gravity performance

The Lucid Gravity doesn’t just offer an excellent range — it’s super quick too. The Gravity will come with dual electric motors, with all-wheel drive being standard, at least at the beginning.

Exact numbers for the performance of the Gravity have yet to be revealed, but it’s likely that the Gravity will offer similar performance to the Lucid Air. That means that it’ll get around 480 horsepower in the base Pure model, 620 horsepower in the Touring trim, and 1,050 horsepower in the Grand Touring trim.

We’ll have to wait and see exactly how well the Lucid Gravity performs in the real world. But, if the Gravity is anything like the Air, it could end up being one of the fastest electric cars out there — the Lucid Air Dream Edition currently sits only behind the Tesla Model S Plaid on the list of fastest production cars.

Lucid Gravity price

Don’t expect the Lucid Gravity to save us from a lack of affordable electric SUVs — the Lucid Air starts at $74,900, and the Gravity will be in the same neighborhood. Lucid has said that the car will have a starting price of “under $80,000,” but we don’t expect it to be much under that.

Of course, that price will be for the base trim of the car, and higher-end models will certainly cost more. Just look at the Sapphire edition of the Lucid Air, which had a starting price of around $249,000. It’s hard to imagine that Lucid won’t eventually offer a similarly priced version of the Gravity.

Lucid Gravity release date

So when will you be able to get your hands on the Lucid Gravity for yourself? Unfortunately, you’ll still have to wait a while. Lucid has said that the Gravity will be available starting in late 2024, so it may still be a year out from consumer availability. You can order it now though, if you so choose — but again, it’ll be some time before you actually get it.

Further, after the company launches the Gravity, it plans to dive into a more mainstream luxury market with less expensive vehicles. The midsize platform is targeting a price tag around $50,000, and it’s thought the first vehicle on the platform will be a crossover designed to compete toe to toe with Tesla’s Model Y. Investors shouldn’t expect this next platform vehicle to drive into consumers’ garages until early 2026, but it’s a future that Lucid can sell investors on sooner, rather than later.

Time to give up on Lucid?

Investors watched how quickly things can turn south with Fisker, as its stock price plunged 99% year to date and the New York Stock Exchange has delisted the stock. That said, Lucid likely has the liquidity needed to survive a year or longer before things get as dire as Fisker, since the latter couldn’t even cover accounts payable recently.

Further, the industry is getting closer to the point when EVs will be much more price competitive with gasoline vehicles. In fact, Pedro Pacheco, vice president of research at technology analysis firm Gartner, said that EVs are predicted to be less expensive to build than internal combustion cars by 2027, thanks to innovative manufacturing techniques and declining battery costs.
