But the roominess! Rawlinson explained it was because of the way the car’s battery pack is stacked. Rather than lay the batteries flat across the chassis like some electric cars, Lucid has “sculpted” the battery pack to enhance the interior space. That makes the Air narrower, shorter, and lower than a Model S, but with the interior space of a long wheelbase S class Mercedes.
“This is kind of a paradigm buster,” Rawlinson said. “It’s great to ride in and it’s great to drive.”
