There’s maybe one person on Macrumors who is close to being able to afford a Lucid Air.



Edit: My apologies to all the landlords we have here in our group. Please don’t raise my rent!

This is.... news? I've had wireless CarPlay in my BMW for years now and wireless is the standard for BMW as well.
It is news for Lucid owners or people who where thinking of buying a Lucid.

MKBHD review.


Sorry, but that looks like a paid advertisement for Lucid. The intro was just yeah. I’m not saying it’s not a nice car, but that was just an advertisement.


He’s comparing the $89,000 Tesla “base” Model S to the upgraded $139,000 Lucid Air GT. You mean for $50,000 more it’s going to be a better car? Shocking! A more reasonable comparison would be comparing the $109,000 Tesla Model S Plaid to the $107,000 Lucid Air Touring.

Ive got one, and a Tesla model Y. The Tesla is a better electric car. The air is a lot more comfortable though. Excited for carplay. Hope to have the update when i get back home this weekend.

You underestimate this audience. I bet quite a few people here could easily afford one. I’m not on that list of course ?
