An interview with Peter Rawlinson from Lucid: “One thing of which Rawlinson is particularly proud is that the technology — from the motors to the inverters to the batteries — were all developed in-house by Lucid, not bought off the shelf as many other EV makers are doing. “It’s unbelievable that Porsche, even the mighty Porsche, buys its powertrain. It’s not its own in-house tech. It’s unbelievable, the man in the street is just oblivious to this. And the leader, the big beast of EVs, is Tesla and it does it all in-house. And so we’re taking it to another level, I believe. I know that we have more than 15% better efficiency (than Tesla) with our own in-house technology-complete system. Now, with just our own team, we’re really pushing the envelope in every aspect of this.”
If true, who builds them?
