Lucid air is the first electric car with a 520 mile EPA-rated Range – The air dream edition of lucid motors gets an environmental protection agency-rated range of 520 miles. This feat, therefore, makes it the longest-range electric vehicle to ever be rated by the agency.
Lucid Air Is the First Electric Car with a 520 Mile EPA-Rated Range
The lucid air has got over 100 miles more than what Telsa’s longest-range EV has got to offer. Over a year ago, the company lucid claimed that its then yet-to-be unveiled electric sedan would have the longest range in the industry.
With the EPA ratings now coming, the claim has now been certified. This certification comes as a big win for the CEO and CTO of the company peter Rawlinson. He once led the development of the models when he worked at Telsa. He said that the air will outmatch Telsa in various terms such as price, acceleration, range, and luxury.
Lucid Air Price
However beating the longest range Telsa, fans should know that the added range will come at a cost. The dream edition with 19-inch wheels will be starting at $169,000. But if you think that the price is too much for you, you can wait till next year as the company plans to unveil a base model starting at $77,400 or $69,900 with the federal EV tax credit.
The EPA rating company also rated various trim levels of the EV. The dream edition with 21-inch wheels (481 miles), dream edition performance with 19-inch wheels (471 miles), dream edition performance with 21-inch wheels (516 miles).
Lucid Air Specs And Features
This vehicle has got a 113kWh battery pack and it helps contribute to its impressive range including its aerodynamic design. The EPA estimates various criteria’s including the EV range. These are meant to serve more like a guideline when comparing vehicles by customers says the company on its official website. And just as your mileage varies on gasoline vehicles, your range will also vary for electric vehicles.
The range of electric vehicles is determined by the EPA and also Europe’s worldwide harmonized light vehicle test procedure (WLTP). The latter although is more optimistic when it comes to range determinations for EVs than the EPA.
The LUCID company that recently went public is getting ready to start the delivery of its first vehicles to customers late this year. The company has already got more than 100 nearly finished quality versions at its factory in Arizona. The company also will be hosting a production preview at its advanced manufacturing plant factory in Casa Grande, Arizona known as (AMP-1) at the end of September.
