The Lucid Air Dream Edition Just Might Be Elon Musk’s Worst Nightmare

Sometimes you witness something, and the only thing you can think to describe it is “yep, they got it.” That’s the feeling I had when I saw the Lucid Air Dream Edition in person this week. “They got it.” By “it,” I mean they may have actually cracked the secret recipe for what makes a great electric vehicle (EV).

They specifically do a lot of recruiting, and gave us the below chart of the number of jobs they were working throughout the last twelve months (blue line), along with the number of jobs/recruiter they had at any given time this year (red line).
