- “I have Bitcoin, Tesla has Bitcoin, SpaceX has Bitcoin,” says Elon Musk
- Tesla collects 285,000 cars upon detection of collision risk
- Elon Musk: Tesla Autopilot remains safer to drive than any human
The test was run on two Lucid Air Dream Edition cars by MotorTrend and the company’s CEO Peter Rawlinson. Motortrend’s Lucid Air managed to cover the 716km between the two cities with a single charge, arriving at the destination still with 48km of autonomy.
Rawlinson’s car will have arrived in San Francisco still with 115km of battery life.
Note that the tests were done with the Range version of the Lucid Air, a vehicle that still has 933 horsepower. The autonomy of electric car batteries continues to be an issue for many interested in acquiring this type of vehicle, with Lucid having here a strong argument to be considered in the future.
Lucid Air will begin shipping at the end of 2021.
