Lucid Motors announced that it will offer two versions of the Dream Edition of its upcoming Air electric sedan: one now with over 1,000 hp of power and one with a range of over 500 miles.
After some delays, Lucid is now maintaining its goal of starting deliveries of its first vehicle, the Air, by the end of the year.
The first version of the Air was supposed to be the Air Dream Edition, which listed 503 miles, 1,080 hp, and 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds on a single charge.
Today, the automaker has announced minor changes to the plan.
Lucid now plans to offer two versions of the Dream Edition, one focused on performance and the other on range:
“Dream Edition Performance Will feature a powertrain optimized for speed and acceleration with 1,111 horsepower. Dream Edition Range Will deliver 933 horsepower embodying the Lucid’s precise focus at max range. EPA Category certification is currently in process and will be announced for each version of the Dream Edition when completed. Although official EPA ranges are not yet available, the Lucid recently completed a real-world evaluation campaign with Motor Trend. During the drive, a pair of Dream Edition range cars drove from Los Angeles to San Francisco at highway speeds through central California, and then to Lucid’s global headquarters in San Francisco Bay, traveling 445 miles on a single charge. Of. Upon arrival, the cars displayed 30 miles and 72 miles of balance (for a total of 475 and 517 miles, respectively).
Since the EPA hasn’t released an official range yet, Lucid isn’t confirming it, but it does expect the Dream Edition range to achieve over 500 miles of range on a single charge.
Here are all the other specs for the two variants:
|dream performance||dream range|
|motors||Dual Motor, AWD||Dual Motor, AWD|
|Power (Total, F&R)||1,111 horsepower||933 HP|
|Torque (Total, F&R)||1000+ Nm||1000+ Nm|
|0-60 mph||2.5 seconds||2.7 seconds|
|top speed||168 mph||168 mph|

Lucid notes that the 500+ miles announced for the Dream Edition range is based on its EPA estimated range when the car is equipped with 19” wheels.
Your actual range can change based on a number of factors, including driving habits, charging habits, temperature, and more.

The automaker says it will soon contact Dream Edition reservation holders regarding the new choice:
Lucid will soon be contacting Dream Edition reservation holders to update their configuration with their preferred version, both of which remain fully equipped for a price of $169,000 ($161,500 after a potential $7,500 US federal tax credit). .. In September, Lucid will begin hosting media tours of its factory in Casa Grande, Arizona, before delivery to customers. Deliveries of both versions of the fully-reserved Lucid Air Dream Edition will begin later this year, with the Lucid Air Grand Touring soon followed.
Lucid has previously revealed that reservations for the Dream Edition are sold out, and it plans to produce about 500 of them before shifting production to less expensive versions of the Air electric sedan.
