Introducing the Lucid Gravity: Redefining the Electric SUV
- The new Lucid Gravity heralds the dawn of a new era for electric Sport Utility Vehicles: an unprecedented combination of attributes previously unseen in a single vehicle and a projected range in excess of 440 miles1.
- Lucid innovations in EV technology and packaging deliver an expansive, luxurious interior for up to seven adults and their belongings, without the huge exterior and poor maneuverability often associated with traditional full-size, three-row SUVs.
- Featuring a brand-new SUV platform and next generation of Lucid's award-winning, proprietary electric powertrain, Gravity will deliver an exhilarating driving experience.
- Lucid proved its capability in producing an extraordinary, acclaimed luxury EV sedan; now Gravity opens Lucid to the far larger SUV market.
- Lucid Gravity lands in late 2024. As with
Lucid Air, pricing for Gravity will start under $80,0002.
"The Gravity SUV represents a significant leap forward for Lucid's world-leading technology and design. Customers will find an unprecedented combination of space and maneuverability, luxury, and versatility, all seamlessly integrated into one remarkable vehicle with the driving experience and range of a true Lucid," said
Gravity Design: A Balance of Form and Function
"At Lucid, we believe in pushing the boundaries of design. We have leaned into this belief to maximize spaciousness, aerodynamic efficiency, and utility, resulting in an electric SUV with a previously unseen blend of attributes," said
Lucid's commitment to design excellence, spacious interiors, and versatility further sets Gravity apart from the competition. The exterior design choices are a testament to Gravity's fusion of aesthetics and utility. A focus on efficiency has led to a target coefficient of drag of less than 0.243, an aerodynamic profile unsurpassed by other three-row SUVs. With a commanding presence supported by a substantial frunk, sleek profile, elongated cabin, pronounced shoulders, and sporty tail spoiler, Gravity showcases its ability to meet the diverse needs of the daily driver.
Inside, Gravity impresses with ample and flexible cargo areas. The cabin offers spacious seating, with the added convenience of second and third-row seats that fold flat to reveal more than 112 cubic feet of total usable cargo space for an effortless combination of comfort and cargo capacity. The sliding second row seats combine with integrated convenience tables for an elevated back-seat experience. Remarkable legroom is carried through to the third row, enabling a comfortable seven-passenger configuration, making it the ideal vehicle for every adventure.
Gravity represents a definitive evolution of Lucid's user interface, called Clearview Cockpit, featuring an intuitive 34-inch curved and uninterrupted OLED display that floats above Gravity's innovative new steering wheel, closely matched with the driver's line of sight. Lucid's
Gravity's exceptional performance starts with a brand new platform developed from the ground up as a sporty SUV. This is seamlessly integrated with the next-generation of Lucid's proprietary, ultra-compact powertrain technology, including the most power-dense EV motors in production globally, and an evolution of its 900V electrical architecture. Gravity is not just a luxury SUV; it's a powerhouse, accelerating from 0-60 mph in less than 3.5 seconds while providing a substantial payload capacity of over 1,500 pounds and an additional 6,000 pounds of towing capacity4.
With the Gravity SUV, performance extends beyond paved roads as Lucid introduces Zero Gravity, an enhanced optional air suspension package that automatically adapts to various terrain needs, ensuring a smooth and comfortable ride on any surface. Manual adjustments also offer the ability to raise Gravity to maximize off-road capability or lower it to maximize performance and range.
"Lucid's design and engineering philosophy has always prioritized doing more with less. Gravity applies this principle to offer customers more of what they need – more space, more utility, and more range – while avoiding excess battery cells, added cost of ownership, and unnecessary weight," said
The Gravity SUV is not just efficient; it sets new standards for SUVs with a smaller, lighter, more sustainable battery pack while offering exceptional range, projected to be in excess of 440 miles1. Gravity adopts an evolution of the company's renowned over 900V architecture and ultra-fast charge rates, making it one of the fastest EV charging systems globally. Customers can add up to 200 miles of range in about 15 minutes5, ensuring convenience and minimal downtime during long journeys. Lucid Gravity sets a new benchmark for SUVs, proving that efficiency, luxury, and high performance can coexist.
"Gravity will take our customers farther with less batteries and therefore using less precious energy," added Rawlinson. "Its smaller, lighter, and higher technology battery pack means fewer precious metals and minerals, less energy to charge, less electricity consumed, less pressure upon the grid, and a lighter weight and more dynamic vehicle. When we say we're here to advance the technology, this is what we mean – this is truly sustainability in action."
The Gravity Human Experience: Beyond Surface Luxury
Gravity's luxury in-car experience is exceptional, designed for both the body and the mind. From meticulously chosen materials, exceptional fit and finish, and thoughtfully placed accents, every aspect of Gravity has been sustainably crafted with intention and eco-consciousness.
