Another potential contender in the EV space. With all of these "real potentials" happening and some serious R&D I have to wonder why anyone would say the EV is not going to last.

It will never take the top speed of a special EV: the four Lunar Rovers (made by GM), which traveled at over 22,000 MPH on the way to the Moon during the Apollo project. Seriously, who will buy a BEV just for the speed? Only a racer, not the average laypersons.

I'm guessing that the culture in Puerto Rico is a bit different from the continental United States.
Along with other types of racing, "EV RALLY" is growing FAST.

Lucid and Faraday are both pipe-dreams. Tesla can't make any money so how can these two. They each have no factory or any support structure for the cars they sell. If you think Tesla has issues, wait til these 2 try and produce a "production car". They will be lucky to even match Fisker which was the first car "producer' that couldn't support the products they sold. In case no one noticed, there are too many car companies now. These 2 companies are just looking for money from anyone- neither one has any technology that isn't already out there already.

What's with your constant negative attitude? Where do you expect these companies to start from? How do you expect competition and new technology to be born?

Why don't we go back the horse drawn carriage while we are at it since everything is doom and gloom.

It's proof of concept. It's meant to be a demonstrator. Why shouldn't EV's show of their performance and abilities just like any other car? If they don't, they'll never be recognized for much beyond being big golf carts.

Sorry for pissing you off. I thought you could voice opinions on this forum. I will stay out of future discussions

Everyone said Tesla would fail by now. While they haven't "made" money, they are still around. Their support structure is getting there, but still has a lot of work in that regard. (especially the availability of parts).

Hopefully Lucid succeeds where some others have failed. It takes a lot of coin to get a car company off the ground and have a nationwide support network. Waiting for the AWD/4WD Suv/Truck EV Variant to come out en masse and affordable. (over $100k just isn't affordable for most people, me included). We have "sports cars" and passenger cars now... that is the missing segment, which I might add is the "fatest" segement in the US as to what people want to drive.

Until Tesla came along, no one took EVs seriously outside of a small percentage of the population. (enthusiasts)

You can voice any opinion you want. But all you do is be negative. And not for any particularly good reason. If you have an argument to make, make it but state some facts along with it. Not simply whining.

Regardless of whether Lucid or Faraday or Tesla are successful or not, their existence pushes other car makers to get off their arses and make better cars. Where would we be right now if Tesla didn't exist?
