Lucid Motors is eventually prepared with branded extras. The California EV maker tapped the same members who designed the Air to work up the initially 4 aftermarket possibilities, keeping a coherent aesthetic with the six-determine electrical sedan. Most likely the most welcome merchandise for entrepreneurs will the Related Residence Charging Station costing $1,200. The modest, smooth, Wi-Fi-enabled black box maxes out Amount 2 AC charging capability, supporting the 19.2-kW charging the Air is able of and injecting 80 miles of variety into the battery pack each individual hour. It is also bi-directional, able to return juice to a residence vitality storage process by means of the “lightweight” 24-foot cable. The station doubles the charging ability of the cellular charging cable all Air trims arrive with, which tops out at 9.6-kW and is fantastic for 40 miles of variety for just about every hour plugged in.

It is not reasonably priced, but this is priced like a luxurious merchandise for a luxurious car, and it truly is still a lot less than Ford’s Cost Station Professional that operates $1,310 retail. Tesla’s reworked its charging options these days, placing out a 3rd-gen Wall Connector for $400. That one is compatible with nearly all EVs, but it tops out at 11.5 kW, down from the 2nd-gen charger’s 19.2-kW ability.

The relaxation of the add-ons accommodate the “lively way of living” people carmakers frequently pitch as the perfect demographic. The $500 black aluminum Crossbars hook cleanly into slots on the roof. They can assistance 165 kilos, are reported to have “nominal impact on aerodynamics,” and operate with a variety of standard Yakima mounts to maintain outdoorsy gear. The Cargo Capsule was manufactured to sit on these bars, incorporating 11.47 cubic toes of storage place to the Air’s previously voluminous 32.5 ft of inside load room with the next row seats up. It really is a shame what the wind and factors will do to the Capsule, although the gloss and matte black end on the Ab muscles shell is genuine purdy. The situation can be opened from either facet of the car, and is fitted with inside lights to allay rummaging in the dim. We’re continue to not positive why the Capsule expenses $2,000, but we would like to come across out.

At last, a $250 set of all-temperature mats will assistance hold the Earth outside the motor vehicle as a substitute of getting part of the Air’s carpeting. Major obligation, non-slip, water-proof, with lifted edges to stop spillage of grime, they’re shaded to match the Air’s inside options in hues of Ceramic, Graphite, Saddle, and Black.   

Frankly, the previous a few bits of equipment seem like planning for the Lucid Gravity SUV supposedly coming up coming calendar year, though press photos for the Gravity featured a slimmer rooftop box than the Air device. 

The components can be ordered now at Lucid’s keep, deliveries slated to begin right before the close of the yr. The house charging station is the only constrained item, advertising in confined quantities right until 2023.
