Lucid Motors brought its alpha prototype of its first production luxury EV to CES 2017.

We wanted it to be like the dazzle ships in World War I, said Lucid CTO Peter Rawlinson.

Then he pointed out that the camo is actually the word Lucid exploded across the side of the car.

The result is a vehicle that has been designed from the ground up to maximize the space that an electric powertrain allows.

Thanks to Lucid s development history, the car will have a 300-mile range, with the option to up that to around 400 miles.

The key, Rawlinson said, was Lucid s breakthrough technology that allows the batteries to be repeatedly charged at high-powered fast chargers and not degrade as quickly as competitors systems.
