What do you know about Lucid

Sorry if other posts already addressed this topic, but Lucid is coming out with an EV with 400+ miles of range and 0-60 in 2.5?

Is this the first real competitor for Tesla?

I have never heard about his company until today. If anyone has any info, I would be glad to hear about it . . .

If real, then congrats to Lucid! The more EVs the better IMO.

@BuffaloBillsFan: heard about them for years. They have also produced nothing for years, except a lot of strained checkbooks for investors.

They've recently broken ground on their factory here near Phoenix ( ) . I wish them all the best; but at this stage I don't see them as anything other than a bright spot on the horizon. They appear to have somehow acquired a copy of Tesla's Secret Master Plan from back in 2006 ( ), and seem to be following a similar path.

Thanks for the feedback. I guess there is a reason I haven’t heard of them. Wish them the best of luck, though . . .

@Frank99. Thanks so much for the links! I have not seen the super-secret Tesla Master Plan, written in 2006 before. I think it is fair to praise Mr. Musk for doing what he set out to achieve with the Model 3.

1% chance of success

Like Tesla had in 2002

BuffaloBillsFan -
I've always loved that blog post; first for the tongue in cheek humor ("just between you and me"), and second for the clear presentation of a corporate goal and the execution that brought it about. Tesla wasn't about a bunch of motivational posters on a wall, or a corporate goal written by a consulting company commissioned because all successful companies had a goal; it was about a bunch of people with a clear understanding of a clear corporate goal that furthered humanity. Probably the reason that I stood in line with 1000 of my best friends back in 2016 to put a reservation down on a car that I'd never even seen and was going to cost more than any other car I'd ever bought.
