The Lucid Air knows how to be expected on the Old Continent. We have gathered all the information on the electric sedan from the United States!
In Europe, the very select club of high-end electric sedans will soon have a new member. Almost a year after its launch in the United States, the brand Lucid wants to sell his luxury sedan Air first in Germany.
Here is all the latest information about it!
A very high-end electric sedan
In the United States, Lucid is currently causing a stir with the version ” Dream Edition » of Air, which costs the equivalent of €149,900. Limited to 520 copies, this first series can cover up to 837 kilometers in a normalized cycle thanks to its 118 kWh battery.
The performances are also not to be outdone: with its two engines which total 1,111 hp, the Lucid Air thus accelerates 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds and reached 260 km/h before the electronics throttle the car.
The builder claims that this luxurious liner is also fast in terms of charge : With a power of 300 kW, the Lucid Air takes in the best case only 20 minutes to cover some 500 kilometers.
Several versions available
Prices should start at around €100,000 and the sedan is expected to compete with vehicles such as the Tesla Model Sthe luxurious Mercedes EQS as well as twins Porsche Taycan and Audi E-tron GT.
For the future top model Grand Touring, which costs the equivalent of 123,293 euros, Lucid promises 800 hp and 830 kilometers! Still a little patience…
Record autonomy in the segment
Already marketed in the United States, the Lucid Air received its EPA autonomythe equivalent of our WLTP. And it’s quite simply a record for the American!
Where a restyled Tesla Model S fails at 652 km, and a Mercedes EQS at 770 km despite a very large battery and a worked aero, the Lucid Air does much, much better: 520 miles, or 837 km! The newcomer therefore atomizes the competition.
To achieve these record autonomy, no secret: Lucid relies onhuge batteries, announced at 113 kWh for the Dream Edition. This is also a record since the Tesla Model S offers 100 kWh, and the Mercedes EQS 108 kWh. This record number of 837km is achieved with a Lucid Air Dream Edition Range, with 19 inch rims. The same car, but on 21-inch rims, stops after 774 km.
See you at the end of the year to see the big sedan land on our roads!
