The company behind the self-proclaimed longest range, fastest charging electric car on the market celebrated the grand opening of its 35th studio at the Village at Corte Madera on March 18. One of the company’s models, Lucid Air Grand Touring, features an official EPA estimated 516 miles of range or 1,050 horsepower. The Newark-based car company, which delivered its first car in October, 2021, received the 2022 Motor Trend Car of the Year Award for the first car it ever produced, the somewhat smaller Lucid Air.

With proprietary engine technology developed in-house, cars boast two carry-on suitcase-sized, synchronous motors and can charge 300 miles in 20 minutes. The smaller engine carriages mean more room for people and stuff – up to five people and luggage can comfortably fit in either car. “We have been eager to open a location in the North Bay, an area known for its expansive natural beauty and commitment to acting on climate change,” said Zak Edson, Vice President of Sales and Service, Lucid Group. Other Bay Area studio locations include San Jose and Millbrae.

After 20 years in the chiropractic and sports injury therapy business in Corte Madera, owner and Marin native Chappy Wood, D.C., opened a Red Light Therapy Room this summer. “Red Light Therapy has many uses to help people recover from physical, mental and chemical stressors,” says Wood. “It does this by helping you reduce cellular oxidative stress and it stimulates mitochondria.” Wood envisions room time as a sort of self-service — come by and do some therapy exercises and stretches to support recovery from mental and physical stressors, then use the Red Light Room to support healing.
