The new Lucid Air has been making a significant impression on the luxury electric vehicle sector with its futuristic technology, unbeatable driving range, and supercar-like performance. With prices for this next-gen EV starting at $89,050, this modern and stylish luxury sedan makes a lasting impact on anyone who interacts with it. If you have had your mind on an opulent new vehicle, here’s why the Lucid Air is the right fit for you:
World’s longest EV driving range
The car is offered in a choice of 5 different motors and trims – the Pure, Touring, Grand Touring, Grand Touring Performance, and Sapphire. The Lucid Air Touring offers the world’s longest EV driving range, with the ability to go up to 516 miles on a single charge.
The entry-level Air is fitted with a single electric motor that can produce up to 480 horsepower and has an estimated driving range of up to 410 miles. All other models of the Lucid Air are equipped with dual electric motors. The Air Touring can generate 620 horsepower, and has a driving range of 425 miles per charge, while the Grand Touring can generate 1050 horsepower and be driven up to 516 miles. The top model, Lucid Air Sapphire, powered by three electric motors to improve acceleration performance, generates upwards of 1200 horsepower and can reach a top speed of 200 mph.
When plugged into a fast charger, the Lucid Air can recover 300 miles of driving range within 21 minutes, saving drivers tons of time on their trips.
As a modern-age luxury sedan, the Lucid Air is packed with expensive-looking interiors, quality materials, and cutting-edge technology. It has a large back seat that can comfortably fit 3 adults. You can also make it more comfortable by opting for the Executive Rear Seating option to recline and relax. The cabin is lush with storage space, cup holders, a large center-console bin, as well as smartphone slots. In addition, the sedan has a glass roof that aids visibility.
Designed to be an effortlessly intuitive system, the Lucid Air’s infotainment system has a 34-inch Glass Cockpit display, and an additional, retractable tablet-like lower touch screen called the Pilot Panel to supplement with deeper controls. The advanced voice-recognition software responds well to natural speech patterns, and the car has 21 carefully-placed speakers with Dolby Atmos technology to deliver high-quality audio. Additionally, Lucid Air constantly receives new updates and enhancements via its Ethernet-ring data network to stay up to date and bring the most current innovations to its drivers.
While the car has not reached self-driving status yet, the Lucid Air is equipped with a range of other safety features, when fitted with the Advanced Driver Assistance System. Some of these features include a driver monitoring system, front and rear cross-traffic protection, automated emergency braking, forward collision warning, blind spot warning, lane departure protection, rear pedestrian collision protection, traffic sign recognition, traffic drive-off alert, adaptive cruise control, automatic perpendicular and parallel parking, rear view monitoring, highway assist, and more.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
One of the biggest reasons behind the shift to electric vehicles and greener technologies has been the rise of carbon emissions and global warming. The Lucid Air helps you live worry-free, as it has combined carbon-di-oxide emissions of 0 grams per mile – ensuring superior energy efficiency and powerful drive.
Despite being a newcomer in the market, the Lucid Air offers a competitive warranty. The Limited Warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles, while the Powertrain warranty covers eight years or 100,000 miles. In addition to these brilliant features, new Lucid Air owners can also enjoy 3 years of free fast charging at Electrify America charging stations.
