Lucid has revealed its long-awaited Gravity electric SUV at the Los Angeles Auto Show this week, with deliveries of the limited Dream Edition model slated for late next year. The Gravity will come in seven-seater and five-seater configurations, and just like the Air sedan, more affordable models are expected to follow.




The Gravity's handsome design takes after the Air sedan, and its smooth silhouette allows for an incredibly slippery drag coefficient of under 0.24 for typical highway driving. The SUV's sleek looks are thanks in part to a compact motor design and low positioning for the battery, allowing for sufficient space inside without the need for an awkwardly tall roofline. In fact, the Gravity slips just below 6 feet in height. Compared to the Lucid Air, the Gravity features a lengthened wheelbase, which is said to be shorter than an Audi Q7, and its stacked batteries have been stuffed under the front seats as opposed to the rear ones.




As expected after hearing about its careful powertrain placement, stepping inside the seven-seat Gravity reveals enormous amounts of space in all three rows. Wide rear doors, which can open up to a whopping 90 degrees, allow access to the rearmost row, where Lucid claims there is enough space to comfortably accomodate a pair of adults. The roominess is further amplified by an expansive glass roof, much like the one found inside the Air sedan. The cargo area features a very low floor for easier loading, and the third row seats can fold completely flat into the cargo floor. The same is true for the second row seats, which also fold into the floor thanks to the battery pack's low positioning. Cargo space sits at a maximum of 112 cubic feet for the seven-seater model, while the available five-seat configuration enables up to 120 cubic feet of trunk space.


The Gravity also features a small luggage area up front, filling in the gap that would usually house a combustion engine. This hollow space opens very low, allowing two adults to sit in the front trunk. Those who will find use in this feature can opt for Lucid's accessory seat cushions, and there are also cupholders molded into either side of the frunk area.




Much like its exterior, the Gravity's interior doesn't stray too far from the cabin found inside the Air. However, its larger footprint and higher roofline lend it an extra airy feel compared to the sedan. In front of the driver sits the brand's new Clear View cockpit setup, which places the wide OLED display above the squircle-shaped steering wheel for easier viewing. There's also an available head-up display, which displays augmented reality projections with the help of laser technology. Meanwhile, the lower OLED display, which floats beside the steering wheel, is larger than the central screen found in the Air. It moves to a more intuitive landscape format, which is much more welcoming to features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The display's metal-clad lower bezel cleverly houses physical climate and volume controls, though that's about it in terms of analog switchgear.





All of the nifty screens are powered by Lucid's latest UX 3.0 software, which was created fully in-house. It places an emphasis on fewer driver distractions and more intuitive controls, including some fun gestures such as thumb-operated swipes on each spoke of the steering wheel. "Sanctuary" is another notable feature, which puts together a relaxing combination of sights and sounds, along with curated temperature and massage settings, for a more enjoyable charging experience.


Resting below the dashboard is an expansive center console, which takes full advantage of the Gravity's spacious footprint. The front section features a sliding drawer that reveals a large storage compartment, which includes configurable modules known as "Bentos" over at Lucid. The rear half of the console, meanwhile, features a rear-hinged armrest.



The Dream Edition launch model is said to use a version of the dual-motor all-wheel drive system that powers the Dream Edition, Grand Touring, and Touring versions of the Air sedan. While Lucid didn't provide exact power specs for the Gravity, we don't expect them to disappoint, especially given that the Air Dream Edition pumps out 1,111 horsepower and a blistering 2.5-second 0-60 sprint. The automaker did confirm that range would sit at around 440 miles, coming from an upgraded version of the company's 900-volt architecture. While that trails behind the 520 miles of range offered by the Air Dream Edition, it still surpasses those of the Tesla Model X and Rivian R1S by a large margin. Additionally, this impressive amount of range comes in spite of the fact that higher-end Gravity models will be capable of a 3.5-second dash to 60 mph from a standstill. Even if its blockier shape and additional weight drain range faster than the Air, hooking the Gravity up to a DC fast charger will allow it to regain roughly 200 miles of range in around 15 minutes.


The Gravity will be plenty capable in more strenuous conditions as well, with a shortened final-drive ratio that will enable decent off-road performance and an impressive tow rating of 6,000 pounds. This beats the Tesla Model X's 5,000-lb capacity, but falls short of the 7,700 lbs offered in the Rivian R1S. Meanwhile, performance off the pavement is assisted by an available Zero Gravity air suspension, which has around four different height settings. The driver can select the higher modes manually for off-road conditions, while the lower settings are largely based on speed and other factors. It's also worth noting that the Gravity Dream Edition rides on large 22-inch wheels, which are wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Elect PZ5 summer tires and include six-piston and four-piston rear brake calipers.



The Gravity will come in nine exterior colors at launch, with six of them coming from the existing Air sedan. New shades exclusive to the SUV include Aurora Green, Lunar Titanium, and Supernova Bronze. Inside, you'll find the same Mojave and Tahoe color schemes found in the Air, along with new Yosemite and Ojai color combos. Two of these color options include vegetable-tanned nappa leather, while the other two are wrapped in non-leather materials.


In all, the Lucid Gravity looks to be a roomy three-row SUV with plenty of clever trickery, while maintaining a relatively compact footprint on the outside. The brand claims that the SUV's starting price will undercut $80,000, though the initial Dream Edition is sure to reach six figures.

2025 Lucid Gravity Packs Truckloads Of Space Into A Sleek, Feature-Rich Package

Even with more range than Tesla's Model X, the Gravity still undercuts it in price.
