Lucid’s special motors delivered up to a wild 1,111 horsepower. The result was a 0-60 mph time of as little as 2.5 seconds: that’s significantly quicker than a Lamborghini Huracán Tecnica, which does 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds. The top speed is 168 miles per hour.
Part of the Air Dream Edition’s charm was its rarity: Lucid only planned to make 500 of the cars. However, that didn’t mean it was giving up on all-electric performance.
Next came the Air Grand Touring, with deliveries beginning in 2022. With up to 1,050 horsepower on tap in Performance trim, it’s slightly slower than the Dream Edition — 0-60 mph arrives in as little as 2.6 seconds, though the 168 mph top speed carries over — but it has the advantage of no longer being a limited edition. Still, if outright pace is your guiding star, you might want to save your money for an even faster iteration of the Air.
