Lucid Air Points At Tesla Model S With Amazing Design, 1,000HP, 400 Mile Range

Published

Lucid Air Electric Vehicle

Silicon Valley-based startup Lucid Motors has unveiled its new Air electric sedan in concept guise in what is a clear respnose to the Tesla Model S.

In addition to being stunning to look at, the Air is quite a piece of tech. It is powered by two electric motors — one at the front and the other at the rear — that produce over 1,000 horsepower and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in only 2.5 seconds, matching the Tesla Model S P100D’s ‘Ludecrous’ mode time.

Do we now have your full attention? Good! Keep reading then…

The Lucid Air can be equipped with either a 100 kWh or 130 kWh battery pack, the latter providing a range of up to 400 miles on a single charge — better than any electric car currently on the market, let alone the Model S.

Although the Air has yet to be revealed in production-guise, the concept car and the prototype revealed to the press feature a stunning exterior with a futuristic and glamorous interior that will surely turn heads. Some design highlights include a long, streamlined profile, stumpy hood, sleek LED headlights, and vertical daytime running lights.

The windshield stretches over the driver’s head, not unlike seen on the Tesla Model X, and is nicely complimented by a massive panoramic glass roof. Both give true meaning to the name “Air”.

At the rear, we see a short decklid and an extended roof line that increases interior space.

Inside, the Air is the very definition of opulent. A minimalist dashboard is dominated by two screens and a large square display at the base of the center console that seems to be used mainly for navigation purposes. Rear passgengers are surrounded by glass and are treated to reclined rear seats covered in white leather, as well as a number of interactive displays for infotainment duties.

Like the Tesla Model S, the Lucid Air won’t come cheap, with the first examples expected to carry a price tag of around $160,000. However, a more affordable model costing around $65,000 will join the lineup later on.

Production begins in 2018 in the U.S. state of Arizona.

Is Alfa Romeo Giving Birth To A Baby SUV?

Published

Blue Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV

Stelvio might be getting a little brother.

Alfa Romeo will reportedly release a brand-new crossover that slots below the Stelvio compact crossover.

Sources famaliar with the vehicle revealed to Greece’s that the model will ride on a model-specific version of the Giorgio platform that underpins the aforementioned Stelvio and the Giulia, meaning it will be rear-wheel drive or, optionally, all-wheel drive.

Power will likely come from a turbocharged, four-cylinder engine and, as unlikely as it might be for the small crossover segment, possibly a V6.

A sub-Stelvio crossover was a centerpiece of the five-year product plan Alfa Romeo presented in June 2018, so this is more than just a rumor. In fact, previous reports claim it will share platforms with either the Jeep Renegade or Compass rather than with the Stelvio.

If designed and built right, the little Italian high-rider could become the company’s best-seller, and releasing it as quickly as possible would help the company reach its goal of selling 400,000 cars annually by 2022.

Bentley Bentayga Speed Nabs “World’s Fastest SUV” Title

New Bentley Bentayga Speed, fastest SUV

The luxury SUV can launch to 62 mph in under 4 seconds.

Bentley proudly boasts that, with a top speed of 190 mph (306 km/h), the Bentayga Speed is the world’s fastest production SUV.

The 6.0-liter W12 engine found in the standard Bentayga has been tweaked to put out 626 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, providing enough propulsion to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in just 3.9 seconds.

It’s worth noting that the 641 hp, V8-powered Lamborghini Urus is actually lighter and more powerful yet has the same top speed. The fact that the two SUVs are closely related makes us think there were some politics behind this head-scratching outcome.

In addition to the extra power, the Bentayga Speed provides a more dynamic driving experience than the regular Bentayga thanks to a retuned Sport mode and a stiffened suspension, while the exhaust note is throatier.

Designer gave the exterior a performance-theme characterized by dark-tint headlights, blacked-out grilles, a tailgate spoiler, and unique 22-inch wheels available in three finishes. Inside, one finds contrast stitching on the diamond-quilted upholstery and Alcantara trim, the first time the material has been used in a Bentayga.

The Bentley Bentayga Speed goes on sale in the second half of 2019 after making its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
