The California-based electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer is currently in search of a Senior Product Manager, Media Partner Management, tasked with overseeing responsibilities as the Product Owner for media app partners like Apple and Amazon Music, as specified in the job listing.
In essence, this move could mean that the Lucid Air sedan and the forthcoming Gravity SUV might feature built-in controls for these popular audio streaming platforms, in a manner similar to Tesla's direct integration with Apple Music, Tidal, Spotify, and more.
For further insight into this development, we contacted Lucid Motors for an official statement, and we will provide updates to this article once we receive their response.
It's worth noting that Lucid already offers Apple CarPlay (both wired and wireless) as a standard feature in the Air EV. As such, these new app integrations, if realized, would serve as supplementary enhancements. In contrast, Tesla owners rely on the listed streaming services and traditional Bluetooth connectivity.
The Lucid Air has an entry-level starting price of $78,900 for the Pure RWD version, equipped with a single rear-mounted electric motor delivering 430 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. This power enables the sedan to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 4.5 seconds, with a top speed of 124 mph. The 88-kilowatt-hour Long Range battery pack boasts an EPA-estimated range of up to 410 miles on standard 19-inch wheels. However, for those seeking more options, Lucid offers a range of different versions.
At the pinnacle of their lineup is the Air Sapphire, priced at $249,000, equipped with a robust 1,234 hp tri-motor setup. This configuration positions it as one of the most powerful production four-door sedans in history, according to Lucid. With such immense power, the EV can accelerate from 0 to 60 in a mere 1.89 seconds, surpassing the Tesla Model S Plaid by a tenth of a second, and can reach a top speed of 205 mph.
