Lucid Motors, a U.S. luxury EV maker, has revealed the Lucid User Experience – or Lucid UX – the technology designed for intuitive interaction with Lucid Air. The interior of the Lucid Air features two primary touch-control displays – the Glass Cockpit, a 34-inch 5K-resolution curved instrument display, and the Pilot Panel, the centrally located lower console display enabling further in-depth controls.

Both are contoured toward the driver and are positioned to be within easy reach.

Users can control many vehicle features simply by speaking, thanks to Alexa Built-in, the best-in-class voice AI. Lucid has also worked with outside tech companies to bring their popular features into the Lucid Air. Apple CarPlay, for example, will be available with a wireless connection.

For Android users, Android Auto will also be offered. In addition, several music services – including Spotify and iHeartRadio – can be controlled directly from the vehicle dash.

Lucid Air owners can receive Over-the-Air (OTA) software updates, bringing new features and even changes to pre-existing features that reflect real-world user preferences and feedback.

Derek Jenkins, Senior VP of Design and Brand, Lucid Motors, says: “In much the same way that a holistic, clean-sheet approach to design and engineering has made possible the revolutionary packaging and efficiency of Lucid Air, this built-from-the-ground-up strategy has also enabled the creation of Lucid UX, a truly innovative human-machine interface that is easy-to-use and aesthetically beautiful. Lucid UX retains specific aspects of a traditional physical interface and pairs those with an innovative digital form factor that’s highly advanced and ergonomic, providing intuitive access to all vehicle systems.”

Customer deliveries of the Lucid Air, which will be produced at Lucid’s new factory in Casa Grande, Arizona, are planned to begin in the second half of 2021.
