Lucid Motor is an American automotive brand that specializes in electric cars. Bt have you ever heard of their vehicles. Well, Lucid Motors is going to turn the tables with the most innovative design ever.

Lucid Air Sedan: Most Aerodynamic vehicle ever…

Yes, Lucid Motor’s first production electric car will be the most aerodynamic vehicle in the world. It means that it will have the least aerodynamic drag ever…!!!

So what is Aerodynamic drag???

The aerodynamic drag coefficient is a measure of how well a vehicle can reduce air resistance. A lower number translates into a quieter cabin with less wind noise and is typically associated with luxury cars.

For an electric vehicle, a lower drag coefficient can increase the overall range by reducing air resistance. Boxy trucks and buses have a much higher drag coefficient, so there is a high air resistance level when the vehicle is moving. Trucks can have a Cd as high as 0.45. A sedan typically measures a Cd of 0.22–0.4. The famous Tesla Model S achieved a Cd of 0.24 in 2014, which was among the lowest among the auto industry. In 2017, the Model 3 completed an even better Cd of 0.23. Thus, the Lucid Air sedan will break the last record of Tesla Model S and achieve an unbelievable 400-mile range by reducing aerodynamic drag.

“Aerodynamic efficiency plays a key role in achieving world-beating range and performance and is particularly valuable to an EV. It provides a “smart range” independent of battery pack size,” said Peter Rawlinson, CEO, and CTO, Lucid Motors. “Our aero team worked seamlessly with design and engineering counterparts, establishing aero efficiency as a core tenet of Lucid Air from its very inception, enabling us to achieve this new standard.”

The Lucid Air sedan underwent testing at North Carolina’s Windshear automotive wind tunnel. The automaker verified a coefficient of drag (Cd) of just 0.21, making the Lucid Air the world’s most aero-efficient luxury car, according to Lucid.  

About Lucid Air sedan

Lucid Air will be a 1000-hp claimed electric vehicle starting at a price tag of $160,000. It will be a fierce competition for the Tesla Model S, but its price speaks a little more “expensive” to Tesla. It is also speculated that Lucid Air will include twin electric motors front and rear with a wide range of LIDARs for full autonomous capabilities.
