Production of the Lucid Air is slated to start after the first production phase of the factory is complete, in late 2020. The luxury sedan, which has been garnering a lot of buzz, will have a driving range of 400 miles and reach 0 – 60 mph in 2.5 seconds. But the Lucid Air’s luxurious high-tech interior will likely be the sedan’s biggest draw when it takes the in New York.
The New York International Automobile Show opens April 10, 2020 to the public, and runs through April 19.
