For the longest time, the EV segment has been ruled by Tesla, and while many car manufacturers have rolled out their own EVs, nothing really ever challenged Tesla. That is, until now. When former Tesla VP Peter Rawlinson took over as CEO of Lucid Motors, his ambition was limitless, and the result of that is the vehicle you see here. Unlike Tesla, the Lucid Air isn't just meant for record-breaking speeds. No, the Lucid is very much a consumer-inspired luxury vehicle, meant to make anyone lusting after a German luxury sedan think twice before making their purchase decision. Many versions of the Air have been introduced since debut. One of the more recent is this 2022 Lucid Air Grand Touring, and while it may be a step down from the range-topping Dream edition, it's still very much a potent car. This example is currently up for sale, and with just 450 miles on the road, it's basically brand new.
Unlike most electric vehicles that will come with some 'repeated' characteristics to inform onlookers that their eyes are on an EV, the Lucid Air is its own personality. Elegant, simple, calming even, are some of the words that can be used to describe its free-flowing exterior design. But isn't just looks. You see, a crucial part of increasing mileage for any EV is its aerodynamic capabilities, and after achieving a drag coefficient of 0.21 (lesser than that of a LaFerrari), there's no arguing that this car slices through the air like a hot knife through butter. This specific 2022 Lucid Air Grand Touring comes in Infinite Black and is complemented by the Platinum Look package. There is also a set of 19-inch Aero Range wheels, designed to boost range from 469 miles to 516 miles! The cabin is equally, if not more remarkable than the exterior. It can easily be considered as a competitor for the S-Class, and most other EV competitors that tend to follow Tesla's approach of adding screens wherever possibly, Lucid has stuck to their own idea, where simplicity in luxury with a dash of innovative tech work harmoniously. Take, for example, the Surreal sound system and beautiful curved display fitted onto the Tahoe interior of this example, it truly showcases build quality of the highest order.
Ironically, there isn't one. Instead, this 2022 Lucid Air Grand Touring uses two electric motors (one on each axle) that produce a combined power output of 800hp when in Sprint mode. Don't worry, with a touch of a button, the Lucid Air can be sent into Smooth mode, bringing the power down to 536hp at will. The driving experience is enhanced on this car with options like DreamDrive Pro and the Lucid Air Experience with navigation.
