Description from YouTube channel Tech Vision :
California company Lucid Motors is expected to become a big name in the future of car manufacturing, joining rivals Tesla at the top of the electric car market. Tesla, though, have had cars on the market since 2008, while Lucid have been biding their time for the 13 years since their foundation, dabbling on other markets and waiting for the time to strike.
