– Instead of your traditional EV charging stations, NIO relies on battery-swap stations. – Lucid originally built EV batteries and powertrains under the name Atieva.
Pros: NIO has no shortage of EVs on the market — they’ve released more than half a dozen so far with plans for more coming soon. Cons: NIO is only available in Asia and Europe, with no immediate plans to arrive in the States.
Pros: The Lucid Air is a rock-solid EV, offering up to 520 miles off of one charge. Cons: Slow to get more models on the market, $100,000 price tag is way out of reach for many consumers.
