Lucid vs Tesla: Why Tesla has something to worry about

Lucid has made a splash recently with its streamlined sedan and 1000Hp electric car claim and when it comes to comparing with Tesla it stands as a serious challenger to Tesla Motors. I was able to see the car up close on Wednesday at the NY International Auto Show at the Javitz Center in New York City.
