Today, Lucid Motors announced that all Lucid Air electric vehicles will now be equipped with Apple’s wireless CarPlay system. As a result of Lucid Air’s support for wireless CarPlay, owners who also use the device will find that their iPhones automatically connect to CarPlay upon entering the vehicle, negating the need to plug in the device.
CarPlay allows users to access Apple Maps, Apple Music, Messages, and other Apple products and services. The user interface of CarPlay is modeled after that of the iPhone, providing iPhone owners with an experience that is intuitive and instantly recognizable.
