Lucid Motors has announced that its forthcoming pure-electric luxury sedan, the Lucid Air, will launch with the most powerful and compact electric drive units ever, with a quarter-mile time of 9.9 seconds.
It will also offer an estimated EPA range of up to 517 miles per charge. To date, it is the only electric sedan able to achieve a quarter-mile time under 10 seconds.
The production version of the Lucid Air will debut in an online reveal on September 9, 2020.
Peter Rawlinson, CEO and CTO, Lucid Motors, says: “Our watchword has been ‘focus’ since day one at Lucid – a focus on sound engineering principles, a focus on creating efficiencies, and a focus on maximizing power to create a world-class EV. When the Lucid Air comes to market next spring, the world will see that we have developed the best electric vehicle technology possible by a wide margin and effectively created a new benchmark for EVs. The result is nothing short of a technological tour de force in every facet upon which a luxury performance car is measured.”
Customer deliveries of the Lucid Air, which will be produced at Lucid’s new factory in Casa Grande, Arizona, will begin in early 2021.
