The Lucid Air, the first luxury electric car from California-based Lucid Motors, was officially unveiled Wednesday evening. From the presentation, we learned that the model delivers an impressive maximal output of 1080 hp, a 0-96 km/h acceleration time of 2.5 seconds and 9.9 seconds for the quarter mile, and a top speed that can reach 270 km/h.
As for range, it's estimated at a maximum of 832 km by the EPA (Environment Protection Agency) and with a 20-minute quick charge, it will be possible to recover some 500 km of range.
These are the kinds of capabilities that could well change the game for electric cars.
"With the Lucid Air, we have created an industry-wide benchmark car that demonstrates the advances that are possible by pushing the boundaries of electric vehicle technology and performance to new levels," said Peter Rawlinson, CEO and CTO of Lucid Motors.
