Lucid’s Luxurious Tesla-Killing EV Is Ready For 2021 With A 517-Mile Range

Auto manufacturers are an optimistic breed when it comes to their projected performance specs. All-too-often, they make promises they have no intention of keeping (it’s hard to make good on an impossible claim). Billed as the car that would take down Tesla, the Lucid Air has long teased us with what’s to come. However, this isn’t some publicity stunt — Lucid aims to deliver. And with evidence.

With the announcement of the 2021 Air comes a new era of EV — Tesla may have changed the game, but Lucid is here to crash the party. Offering some 1,080hp in its top-trim model, the Lucid Air boasts a quarter-mile time of just 9.9 seconds. But don’t confuse the Air for some one-trick pony — it features a Tesla-crushing estimated range of up to 517 miles on a single charge. And if things couldn’t get worse for Elon Musk, the Air will also be the fastest charging electric vehicle bar none. With the ability to charge up to 20 miles per minute, or 300 miles in 20 minutes, EV range anxiety will be thing of the past. The Lucid Air comes in four trim levels ranging from $80,000 to $169,000 with delivery starting in 2021. Reserve yours for $1,000 for the base model or $7,500 for the Dream Edition.
