Cold weather can do a number on an electric car's battery, which is why Lucid Motors trekked out to Minnesota with its new EV.
Lucid's latest blog post talks about its recent trip to Minnesota for cold-weather testing, where temperatures dipped as low as -18 degrees Fahrenheit. But the cold wasn't the only reason Lucid took its Air sedan out there -- it wanted to get all drifty in the snow, too.
