Will the Air go further than the 402-mile Tesla Model S?
Lucid just released a teaser video showing a range figure of some 442 miles for its upcoming Air luxury electric sedan. Will the Air beat the range of the Tesla Model S?
Recently, the Tesla Model S became the first electric car with an EPA-certified range of over 400 miles (402, to be exact) and while that’s surely an impressive figure, it looks like it will be outdone by the Lucid Air.
In a brief teaser video, Lucid hints at the range of the Air. You can watch the counter go up and up and up.
Though it’s hard to see, we did manage to catch the top number listed and it’s a shocking 442 miles (see screengrab below):
That’s a full 40 miles more than the Model S, but is 442 the limit? Or will the Air go even further? At this point we just don’t know. What we do know is that the Air had no problem covering over 800 miles on two charges. Just check out the video below for proof of that. Additionally, Lucid has claimed all along that the Air would exceed 400 miles of range, so 442 doesn’t seem so far stretched then.
Lucid is on track to launch the Air in 2021 with deliveries occurring then too. Pricing is not yet known at this point in time, but we suspect Lucid will offer multiple versions of the Air at various price points. The base version was once claimed to start at just $60,000, whereas the high-end launch edition will set you back something closer to $165,000.
