The Lucid Air all-electric sedan combines forward-looking design with groundbreaking technology to establish an entirely new class of luxury vehicle. As a new entrant to the EV market, Lucid Motors has adopted an innovative simulation-centered design approach, exploiting the best-in-class practices and tools, without being hindered by legacy methods. This allowed Lucid to develop the Air from scratch in just a couple of years. The pioneering approach includes housing the teams working on each discipline involved in electric vehicle design — electromagnetics, thermal, structural, aerodynamic, etc. — in a single room to encourage collaboration from the beginning of the design process. ANSYS has been chosen as a core simulation platform to solve encountered engineering challenges, to promote teamwork across different engineering teams, and to expedite the whole engineering process. Simultaneous optimization of all the different subsystems of the vehicle in a multi-level and multi -disciplinary context was therefore possible. The final product, the Air, offers incredible performance and dynamics, yet still offers remarkable space and comfort while meeting all regulatory requirements. In this section, we describe how Multi-Physics simulation and in particular ANSYS have been implemented and leveraged at Lucid Motors.
