On the heels of the all-electric Lucid Air sedan, California EV startup Lucid Motors also released a handful of shadowy images of its upcoming all-electric SUV. 

As a reminder, the Air is the luxury EV that can beat a Tesla Model S on paper and will have a super spacious interior. Prices for the base model will start at $80,000, which will be available in 2022. The mid-tier version will be available in Q2 of next year.

A company spokesperson declined to provide any specifics on the SUV but did say that it's currently called Project Gravity. Project Gravity will be built on the same platform as the Air — Lucid's LEAP skateboard EV architecture. The company aims to bring the SUV to market in 2023.
