The first car from Lucid Motors, the Lucid Air electric car, will feature Dolby Atmos sound. It is implemented in the standard Surreal Sound audio system with 21 speakers.
Lucid Air’s audio equipment was created by Lucid in cooperation with Dolby specialists, and Capitol Records Studio was taken as a reference sound option. As a result, Dolby Music Director Tim Pryde said, “Lucid is trying to do something unique for the automotive industry” – and will be the first car to support Dolby Atmos.
The Dolby Atmos system in Lucid Air will receive not only ordinary, but also purely car audio applications. For example, when playing “non-Atmos” music (and such records are still the majority), the system will allow you to adjust the height of the “stage”.
In addition, the audio system in Lucid Air uses its properties for familiar car audio alerts. For example, the turn signal will be biased exactly in the direction of the turn, and the “fasten your seat belts” signal will be localized just above the seat with the person unfastened.
