That’s it, the production of the Lucid Air is launched. Initially, the manufacturer’s plant in Arizona will be able to build up to 34,000 cars per year!
This time that’s it, it’s official! the american builder electric cars Lucid Motors launches production of its first electric car: the Lucid Air! The first customers are expected to receive their cars at the end of October.
In Casa Grande, in the state of l’Arizona, the first vehicles of the series Lucid Air came off the assembly lines. Initially, the manufacturer will deliver to the first sponsors the 520 units promises of the edition « Dream », particularly expensive. Deliveries are expected to begin at the end of October. It was only later that the other variants of the luxury sedan would be produced.
According to the manufacturer, the American start-up has already recorded nearly 13,000 pre-orders for this model. For now, the plant – built in just one year – will be able to produce up to 34,000 cars per year. After expansion work, this number should increase to 400,000 copies afterwards.
The Lucid Air, as a reminder, in its most expensive version ” Air Dream“, Develop 1 111 ch thanks to these two high performance electric motors. Everything is coupled to a battery of 112 kWh. All the power is sent to the 4-wheel drive with a range advertised at nearly 520 miles, or approximately 837 kilometers. The equivalent of a Paris – Marseille in a single charge! However, these figures are only given for the version fitted with the “small” 19-inch rims. Those of 21 ″ offering less autonomy even if the latter remains quite honorable with 774 km.
When it comes to pricing, you need an envelope of $ 169,000, which is close to 144 000 €. We could compare it to the Mercedes EQS with his few 523 ch and 770 km promised for a price of around 152 800 €. Without forgetting the Tesla Model S Plaid, displayed for a price of 129 990 €, proposing 637 km of autonomy and 1020 hp.
We can also push the comparison even further, especially with regard to huge batteries of the Lucid. Displayed at 112 kWh, this is once again a record since its two competitors respectively adopt batteries of 108 kWh and 100 kWh.
If there Lucid Air is so effective and that it logically places itself in front of the Tesla Model S, it is not due to chance. Indeed, the boss of Lucid Motors, Perter Rawlinson, was the chief engineer of Model S… When the boss of production, Peter Hochholdinger, also worked for Tesla.
Lucid does not intend to stop there and has already planned his second model. On the menu, a SUV called Gravity scheduled for launch in 2023!
