Lucid is a startup that has been killing it lately with its Lucid Air all-electric luxury sedans.
The company previously received global acclaim with the Lucid Air Dream P model of the vehicle. This limited edition variant had a jaw-dropping 1,111 horsepower.
The power was outrageous, but so was the price due to its super rarity as Lucid made only 520 of these cars.
So, What Now?
But that’s not all. As the company manufacturers its own motors and batteries, seeing the huge demand, it has decided to offer another vehicle with four-digit horsepower.
The Air Grand Touring Performance is the latest luxury sedan from the company. It claims to have 1,050 horses.
The new vehicle is the Performance version of the Lucid Grand Touring which is already available with 819 horsepower. This makes it another extremely compelling variant of Lucid Air, a vehicle that is already well known for its exceptional performance.
Let’s Talk Numbers
Cars like these are all about numbers. Thanks to the instant torque made available by the electric motors, the Lucid Air Grand Touring luxury sedan will have an exhilarating acceleration.
There She Goes
The car will go from 0 to 97 kph in just 2.6 seconds. While this might not match the 2.5 benchmarks set by the Performance version of the Lucid Air Dream, it is still pretty close.
However, the Tesla Model S Plaid with its 0 to 97 kph acceleration of 1.99 seconds still sits at the top of the food chain.
How Far Will It Take You?
One of the most debated topics about EVs is their range. The Lucid Air Grand Touring will have a range of 717 km. This is shy of the 758 km range of the Performance version but is still quite impressive.
It is pertinent to mention that this range is much more than that of the Tesla Model S Plaid which will take you around 637 km before calling it a day.
Fast Charging So You Always Have Enough Range
Thanks to the 900 Volt 350 kW DC Fast charging system, you’ll get more than 480 km of range with just 21 minutes of charging your vehicle.
When Will The Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance be Available?
The company is claiming that the US market will get the vehicle in June this year. If this is true, we won’t have to wait much for this high-performance luxury sedan.
How Much Will It Cost?
The starting price of the Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance will be €165,750 which might seem a lot.
But then, you get supercar level performance coupled with the luxury that you would expect from a high-end American luxury car.
Does it justify the high price? Well, I guess it does, because this means that you don’t need to have two separate cars. The Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance can be your daily driver as well as the weekend car.
Plus, it is super cheap to run and extremely green for the planet. So, if you do the Math, it looks like the vehicle does actually justify its high price.
The Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance is a great addition to Lucid’s lineup. The vehicle is likely to sell like umbrellas on a rainy day mainly because the other Dream Performance vehicle from the company has already been discontinued.
Thus, the Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance is presently the company’s most powerful vehicle in production.
