Less than a month is left before the world premiere of the new Lucid. On the eve of the debut, representatives of the company shared very interesting facts.

Lucid is due to present its innovative Air electric car on September 9 this year. However, we decided to announce some details in advance. Thus, the new electric car will receive the world’s fastest charging system – the power reserve will increase by 32.2 km per minute of charging. Thus, in 20 minutes it will be possible to provide a reserve of 482.8 km, which is an unattainable parameter for the main competitors.

This effect was achieved due to a combination of several factors at once – the use of a 900-volt architecture and new elements in the battery, as well as due to the efficiency of the motor and a balanced thermoregulation system. Lucid has created an innovative module called Lucid Connected Home, which is powered by AC and has bi-directional charging capability. Such a station can be used to store electricity for the home. For the first time, Lucid Air was mentioned in 2016, at the moment some details are known that can impress.

So, the total power of the maximum version of the electric car will reach 1013 hp, and it will take only 2.5 seconds to accelerate to 100 km / h.

The top speed of the car will be limited to 322 km / h, although on tests one of the prototypes showed a phenomenal speed of 379 km / h. According to preliminary data, the range of the Lucid Air will be 832 km according to the EPA cycle. Initially, a limited series of cars with maximum characteristics should go on sale – the cost of such a car will be $ 165,000

A little later, the basic configuration will appear, which, according to preliminary estimates, will cost $ 60,000, which is a fairly competitive indicator.
