Lucid is now officially building the Air electric sedan at its factory in Casa Grande, Arizona. Now that the Air is rolling off the production line, Lucid will start the first deliveries in late October.
Lucid Air Dream Edition models will start next month, which will then be followed by the Grand Touring, Touring, and Air Pure models. Lucid says that it’s already received more than 13,000 reservations for the Air. The big news is the arrival of the Dream Edition Range model with its 520-mile range.
“The proprietary EV technology that Lucid has developed will make it possible to travel more miles using less battery energy. For example, our Lucid Air Grand Touring has an official EPA rating of 516 miles of range with a 112-kWh battery pack, giving it an industry-leading efficiency of 4.6 miles per kWh. Our technology will allow for increasingly lighter, more efficient, and less expensive EVs, and today represents a major step in our journey to expand the accessibility of more sustainable transportation,” said Peter Rawlinson, CEO and CTO, Lucid Group. “I’m delighted that production cars endowed with this level of efficiency are currently driving off our factory line.”
