We additionally received a fairly first rate have a look at the corporate’s subsequent automobile, an all-electric SUV, nicknamed Venture Gravity, within the teaser pictures you see above.
Yesterday, we saw a single image, courtesy of Lucid’s twitter account, that confirmed only a nook of the SUV within the foreground with the Air sedan within the background. Now we now have extra pictures, some with the automobile totally in body, others specializing in particulars, and all in that very same dusky gentle of the image that was tweeted earlier.
We like what we see to date. It appears to sport a two-tone exterior in metallic shades, with the pillars and roof a lighter colour then the majority of the physique. We additionally see that lighter colour repeated on the door sills, on a trim piece throughout the rear and maybe on the wheel spokes. The door handles are flush with the physique, and the skinny headlights mimic the eyes of the Air. This prototype can also be sporting a roof field that seems to reflect the automobile’s two-tone end. It’s fetching in that California twilight, and the transient glimpses on the finish of the Air’s live reveal look promising, however we will not wait till Gravity sees the total gentle of day so we will additional scrutinize it.
