It's the first 14 minutes after the intro.

For those that don't want to listen, here are the highlights (prototype DE R version with production level software tested):

Tom split 500 miles into 20% segments. He didn't do a 70 mph range test so he didn't want to list miles gained in charging.

118 kWh usable, doesn't know total capacity.

5 minutes to get first 20% (so 100 miles)

12 minutes to get to 40%

21 minutes to get to 60% - close to the Lucid claim of 300 miles in 20 minutes.

Tom is at Porsche right now and can't work on the charging video so won't have it out until Monday or Tuesday. Lucid has promised him a car to do the 70 mph test soon.

Something interesting he talked about is that at the factory commissioning, the cars were detuned to protect against people going 0 - 100 in 5 seconds on public roads. He did several launches in a P version with production software and said it was definitely faster.
