The Lucid Air is the new kid on the block looking to enter into the small world or “luxury” electric vehicles. And the CEO of this company is Tesla's Ex Chief Engineer of the Model S Program, Peter Rawlinson. We got to meet up with Peter and pick his brain on the Lucid Air, and see what they did differently to make the world’s longest range EV. It turns out, it’s all about efficiency.

  • All good and dandy when its brand new. But we all know what makes cars fail when they get of age, mostly the expensive electrical system. And EV only have that system. Not much mechanical problems. Also dont crash a EV, its wrecked by the insurance company, as its cheaper to give money to a new one... even the smallest damage. The future of spend and throw away mentality that is increasing. Also now when poorer countries are getting in on the western lifestyle. Already now there are issues to have enough components for these inverters. So there is what the new climate neutral fuels come in, and no one like to talk about it, as that is the future of the world, not changing out all cars with electric, there is not enough materials to make that happen on this planet.

  • Lucid Air is ugly as shit. Once again someone makes an EV look radically different. People should stop over complicating things and just make a cool looking car with an electric drive train. Oh wait Tesla did that and they're selling more cars than they can make

  • Yes while lucid does top the battery ev design however they have not been able to produce the most effecient vechile. Great explaination and I hope lucid can continue to a more effecient vehicle. Remain lucubrative.

  • The Plaid accelerates faster and has a much higher top speed. The people at lucid said they could reach 200mph and would have 1800hp but both of those numbers are WAYYYYY off! The Tesla also has a longer range, is much cheaper, and has a better infrastructure and promised updates.

  • You definitely got paid for this one lol, first off your entire initial point from 2:45 to about 5:30 was explaining permanent magnet motors, a technology tesla invented. You go on to explain how tesla improved its own texhnology. Then in a long wind you explain some minor increases in efficiency that gives .5 miles more per kwh. Pretty cool since its like an 18% increase, but ehhh

  • I am so excited for Lucid to release their vehicles. I just want more EVs on the road man. Who cares what type. Personally, I am not that into Lucid because they're funded by the Saudis and oil interests might complicate the EV revolution. However, if it just turns out to be a money source and Lucid is still hardcore green tech, hell yeah! V2G is what I really hope Lucid incorporates in their lower end models in the future. Personally I love Tesla, hence SR+ in the name, but the real goal is EVs.

  • Dude, all great but if you would work in automotive industry you would know what this dude was all about. Also your story about motors is complete horse shit, because you keep talking about PM (Permanent Magnet) motors being superior and all the stuff, but you forget to mention than PM machines three extremely big problems with them: 1. when you are using magnets on the rotor your rotor is only limited to circa 120 Centigrade temperature, otherwise magnets will start slowly demagnetise (150C being a critical point) - if you decide to start cooling the rotor you will get such a poor reliability and increased friction - it's essentially not worth it 2. PM machines are limited in how high RPM you can get out of them before you will start hitting flux limits, and also when you will put a lot of magnets in the rotor your rotor will become very heavy and will start inducing strong gyro forces on the vehicle 3. PM are very expensive and Neodymium is available from only one country on the planet in sufficient quantities to make large amount of vehicle - China - and supply chain management 15 years ago when Tesla dev cycle was started had very large question marks around China. This douchebag wanted to lock Tesla to poor technology with poor reliability and dependant from supply in China. His departure was considered a right move even by the people that were outside of Tesla. Stator cooling is nothing new - it's just like saying that dude innovated with something that ev motors were doing for last 20 years ... Story about cogging torque is just a smoke screen, it was never considered a problem and dude is bragging with solutions that were used in the market for decades now. In ev world anything between 200V - 500V is considered "low high voltage", anything above 500V is considered "high high voltage" ... amount of problems you get when you start entering high high voltage is considered now a bad design practice due to servicing and life span. Having battery with more cells in series rather than in parallel makes single cell going of of specification, affect the battery more - the 900V configuration vs 350V configuration will be at least twice as badly affected by cell misbalance, and result in vehicle loosing range far sooner. Your magical transistors are all fun and games but are pice of shit in terms of longevity ... bad idea if you want to build a vehicle with them - this is why everybody is staying way clear of them for time being. So, slow clap to you guys ... how fancy was the hotel and perks for this vid (so you did not had to mention that it was sponsored according to US law)

  • Good breakdown. As you said at the end. Competition benefits the consumer's in the end. Also the lucid and most evs do not have a transmission per say. Rather it's just a single speed reduction gearbox. So far only the Porsche taycan and upcoming etron gt have a 2 speed rear gearbox.
