Lucid Motors introduced the Lucid Air all-electric luxury sedan

11 September 2020, 05:25:16

Lucid Motors introduced the Lucid Air all-electric luxury sedanLucid Motors has finally unveiled the Lucid Air all-electric luxury sedan, as promised. Based on the Lucid Electric Advanced Platform (LEAP) upon which all forthcoming Lucid vehicles will be built, it features Lucid's in-house developed compact and lightwaeight drivetrain. The Lucid Air will have a dual-motor AWD system with 1,080 hp output for quarter-mile times as low as 9.9 seconds on a consistent, repeatable basis. To date, it is the only electric sedan able to achieve a quarter-mile time under 10 seconds.

The power of the Lucid Air is complemented by an available extended-range capability that achieves an estimated EPA range of up to 517 miles on a single charge. It will also be the fastest charging EV on the market with rates of up to 20 miles per minute on a DC charging network. This range is provided by a 113 kWh battery pack with a custom Battery Management System (BMS), clever cell packaging, and world-class energy density. In addition, the Lucid Air has an impressive drag coefficient of 0.21.

Inside the Kucid Air there's a 34-inch curved Glass Cockpit 5K display that "floats" above the dashboard In addition, a retractable central Pilot Panel sits in finger-tip reach of the driver and passenger for deeper control of the vehicle’s systems and functions. To complement the digital displays, several highly tactile, precision-milled physical controls are present, including ribbed turbines for steering wheel functions, a volume control roller, and alloy toggle switches for tuning climate settings.

The Lucid Air’s advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS), Lucid DreamDrive, is a first-of-its-kind platform combining the most comprehensive sensor suite on the market with a cutting-edge Driver Monitoring System (DMS), all standard on the Lucid Air Dream Edition. It is the first system of its kind to offer 32 sensors, covering vision, radar and ultrasonics, plus the world’s first standard high-resolution LIDAR in an EV, all working alongside the standard DMS and geo-fenced HD mapping to provide the safest possible approach to Level 2 and Level 3 driver assistance technologies.

When it comes to lights, the Lucid Air arrives with a Micro Lens Array system comprised of literally thousands of “light channels.” Developed entirely in-house, this technology provides the brightest, most precise and advanced lighting system ever. Digital steering of light direction is possible by digitally switching light channels in different directions, revolutionizing visibility and enhancing safety.

The Lucid Air will be available initially in North America, offered in four model ranges: The Lucid Air Dream Edition will feature a unique combination of Lucid attributes and technology, combining incredible performance with exceptional range. The 1,080hp luxury EV sedan will be available in Stellar White, Infinite Black, or a Dream Edition-exclusive Eureka Gold finish. Each color will come with an exclusive “Santa Monica” themed interior trim package, including full Nappa grain Bridge of Weir leather throughout and silvered Eucalyptus wood accents. The Dream Edition will also feature a unique 21-inch “AeroDream” wheel design and be highlighted by special badging and trim that marks its position as a limited-production halo edition of the Lucid Air.

Reservations are open now for customers across the US and Canada, as well as in select countries in Europe and the Middle East. Those who are inspired can reserve the Lucid Air via a $1,000 USD refundable deposit or the limited production Dream Edition with a $7,500 USD refundable deposit. Production at the Lucid Motors factory in Casa Grande, Arizona, will begin in the coming months, with deliveries of the Lucid Air to North American customers to commence in spring of 2021.
