The Lucid Motors Air Dream Edition sedan is an all-electric powerhouse and coming to a road near you soon. The new car will officially debut on September 9th, but until then Lucid continues to keep the excitement high with more information and big numbers. The latest is a 9.9 second 144.4 mph 1/4 mile run down the Sonoma Raceway dragstrip, absolutely smoking a Tesla Model S Performance.
With this run, Lucid Motors is claiming the “World’s Quickest Production Sedan” title. We think that’s a bit optimistic, as the Lucid Air is not yet a production car. We are impressed by its speed, however!
Lucid Air Dream Edition
“With up to 1,080 horsepower available in a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive package, the Lucid Air Dream Edition has achieved quarter-mile times as low as 9.9 seconds on a consistent basis, making it the world’s quickest production sedan. This performance is wrapped in an uncompromisingly luxurious package, offering room for five passengers with class-leading interior and storage space.” – Lucid Motors
Along with massive power, especially in the dual-motor Dream Edition of the car, it is also supposed to offer up truly impressive range. Over the summer Lucid had the Air tested by an independent organization, to EPA test cycle standards. The result was an estimated EPA range of 517 miles. Range-anxiety be gone!
Would you buy a Lucid Air over a Tesla Model S, if the price was similar? We’re not sure yet, but we’re itching to get behind the wheel.
