Apart from the eight or nine motors, the electric sedan also got three different battery packs so far. Luckily for Von Gemmingen, these replacements were done under warranty. We suspect that having to buy a new battery pack would end the career of this Model S as it did with Tuomas Katainen, who blew up his 2013 Tesla Model S in Finland after receiving a €20,000 bill to replace the battery pack in his used EV.
Von Gemmingen also has a Roadster. The last time we checked, it had 700,000 km (434,959 miles). Despite his love for Tesla vehicles, he seems to be interested in a Lucid Air at the moment. For someone traveling as much as he does, a car with a 520-mile range that can charge at high speeds would indeed be the perfect match.
For Lucid, giving Von Gemmingen an Air would be a genius marketing stunt. With official brand support, the man that reached the more miles with a Tesla would probably be happy to promote electric mobility with a vehicle that travels further and charges faster. If it did not have to replace the battery pack or the drive units as much as the Tesla had to, that would also show Lucid did much better than the legacy EV maker in that regard.
For Von Gemmingen, he would not have to fight to keep his car moving anymore. Since Tesla could not care less about his effort to show how much an electric vehicle can last, Lucid may be interested. Will we see a Lucid Air beating the Model S mileage? That would be an interesting plot twist.
