The company says that when the Air launches, it’ll come with 19 of a planned list of 27 ADAS goodies, with the remaining eight coming over-the-air.

Lucid has also kinda/sorta said that Level 3 autonomous driving is in the works for the car, or, at least, that software to enable “Level 3 driving in certain conditions” is in development.

That may just be enough for the folks who are eyeing up a Lucid Air as an alternative to that pricey Mercedes they’re gazing toward.

One other interesting safety system of note is that the Air has a fully-redundant connectivity platform that should offer drivers a backup should the primary system fail.

Of course, a spec list is no substitute for seeing the Air actually driving around, which we expect to happen on September 9th.
