Lucid Group (NASDAQ:LCID) is quickly becoming synonymous with electric vehicle (EV) innovation. The company has been hard at work creating vehicles to rival those of industry leader Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA). InvestorPlace’s Luke Lango has long been bullish on LCID stock as well, praising the company’s tech and citing Lucid’s ability to pull ahead of Tesla in the EV race. Lango sees significant potential for Lucid to overtake its much larger competition in terms of sales and output:
“Lucid Motors will be selling hundreds of thousands of cars a year, at super-high price points, with extremely favorable margins. We’re talking a $20-plus billion revenue company by 2026, with 20%-plus gross margins.”
Today, Lucid gave investors and consumers yet another reason to be optimistic about LCID stock. The company revealed images of the new Lucid Gravity, a highly anticipated luxury electric SUV. The company also released a statement describing the many new and exciting features that the model will offer, including more range than all other non-Lucid EVs.
Let’s take a look at this exciting new vehicle and what it means for LCID stock investors.
