Tesla’s Main Competitor Does Not Intend to Argue with Elon Musk

Recently, the whole world held its breath before the release of the most anticipated electric car of our time from Lucid Motors.

The Lucid Air is called a Tesla killer because of its fantastic performance and specifications, but the company itself does not think so at all. The sedan can go into production in 2021, thanks to a huge investment of $1 billion from the Middle East. However, according to the company's CEO, the model is not planned to be a killer of Elon Musk's electric cars at all.

Peter Rawlinson, who, by the way, was Tesla Vice President before his move to Lucid Motors, made clear the company's intentions in a recent interview.

Please don't describe us as a Tesla killer. The world's big enough that we can both thrive and prosper alongside each other.

he said.

It's a justifiable comparison in one respect, because I think that Tesla is undeniably the leader in electric powertrain technology today.

Rawlinson added. After that, Peter finally put things right, having said that the main competitor of the Lucid Air is not even the Tesla Model S, but the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Construction of our factory started at the very end of last year, and it was completed last week. If this is not a record time, then at least this is an approximate result

the CEO says. As soon as the factory is completed, the company will begin creating the first prototypes, which are expected to be available for sale by the end of 2020. Rawlinson also mentioned that the Air sedan will have a 900-volt architecture, which is even bigger than that of the Porsche Taycan, which is currently the only 800-volt EV on the market.
