Take a look at the Lucid Air: a new sedan that is potentially a great choice for those who want a luxurious electric sedan. It’s got the longest-rated range of any EV, ever, easily setting it apart from other electric vehicles.
You can also get affordable car insurance to counteract the eye-watering $169,000 starting price.
The 2022 Lucid Air is a range record-breaking luxury sedan
Green Car Reports noted that the 2022 Lucid Air official efficiency and range have been posted by the American EPA.
The luxury sedan is estimated to have a range of 520 miles. This is a new highest record, as it surpasses the Tesla with the highest range by more than 100 miles.
The EPA has never rated an EV with such a long range before. However, having the longest range doesn’t necessarily mean this will be the best electric sedan ever.
The Lucid Air is not the most efficient vehicle in terms of miles per kWh. While it beats any Tesla Model S in rated efficiency, it falls behind the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus.
Detailed specs of the Dream Edition Lucid Air
The Lucid Air will launch with a sweet, exclusive Dream Edition that comes in two variants.
According to Car and Driver, the two variants are the Performance and Range models.
The Performance powertrain will be optimized for speed and acceleration, whereas the Range will, obviously, focus on maximizing range.
|Horsepower||1111 hp||933 hp|
|Efficiency in city/highway||110 MPGe/111 MPGe||130 MPGe/132 MPGe|
|Time to hit 60 mph||<2.5s||2.7s|
|Standard wheel setup||21-inch||19-inch|
|Top speed||168 mph||168 mph|
|Torque||737 pound-feet||737 pound-feet|
|Range||481 miles||520 miles|
Both models will start at $169,000, so in the end, it’s down to personal preference which one you want.
The Range does win out in terms of efficiency as it has a considerably higher combined efficiency rating. The Lucid Air’s record-breaking range is found in the Range configuration, too.
If you value power over efficiency, then perhaps the Performance is the variant for you.
The car is scheduled to be delivered later this year as COVID-19 did cause the automaker to suffer chip shortage-related delays.
Lucid continues to create EVs based on innovation, luxury, and sustainability (while not sacrificing style).
