And what better way to put it through some rigorous demands than by drifting it in the snow in the freezing Minnesota winter?
With temperatures as low as minus-18-degrees, Lucid Engineering Manager David Lickfold explains their reasons for testing in the abnormal conditions: “This extreme environment allows us to build upon extensive simulations and climate chamber development, and to perform grueling real-world cold-driving testing and validation of our powertrain, battery, thermal, body, and chassis systems. ”
There have been a multitude of electric car company startups in recent years, and it’s neat to see one like Lucid testing their prototypes in some extreme conditions like snow — and putting it sideways, too.
Lucid hopes to have the Air in production by the end of 2018 so you can do your own 1,000-horsepower snow drifting in an electric car yourself.
