Lucid's second model, the upcoming Gravity SUV, has entered a new development phase with tests taking place on public roads throughout the US.

With its sights set on being the longest-range electric SUV while providing a huge amount of interior space, demand for the Gravity may quickly surpass that of the Lucid Air sedan. Neither come cheap, but the public loves a good SUV and especially one with the attributes Lucid is promising.

With seating for up to seven adults and room for all their gear, the Gravity will build on the Air's comfortable and expansive cabin. The Gravity will reportedly usher in new versions of Lucid's Glass Cockpit hi-res displays powered by a new generation of the Lucid UX operating system. Sports car driving dynamics are also being promised for the big SUV.

“I am excited to see the Gravity SUV moving forward so quickly in its development, as it builds upon everything this company has achieved thus far and drives further advancements of our in-house technology to create a luxury electric SUV like none other. The Lucid Air redefined the sedan category, and as our technology continues to evolve and lead the market, we are in a place where the Gravity is positioned to change the world of SUVs.” - Peter Rawlinson, CEO and CTO, Lucid Group

In a recent interview with YouTube's MotoManTV Lucid's SVP of Design and Brand Derek Jenkins discussed the way that the Gravity has been designed, like the Lucid Air, with space efficiency as one of its major focuses.

Despite having a greater wheelbase than the Air, the Gravity will reportedly not be much longer than its sedan sibling overall. The Gravity, unlike the Air, will be available with air suspension giving it the ability to raise up for light off-roading and lower itself to achieve better range on the highway. Despite its larger size the Gravity will use the same battery packs as the Lucid Air ranging from 112 kWh to 118 kWh.

The Lucid Gravity SUV is due to enter production in 2024.
