The Lucid Air electric sedan has just been rated by the EPA to have a maximum range of 516 miles on a single charge, making it the production electric vehicle with the longest range available today.
The top Grand Touring model starts at $125,600, but is eligible for a $10,000 credit, bringing the effective starting price down to $115,600. For that high price, buyers get some truly impressive electric vehicle range and performance specs:
- 516 mile EPA estimated driving range with 19” wheels
- 819 horsepower
- 0-60 mph acceleration in just 3 seconds
- DC fast charging adds up to 200 miles of range in just 12 minutes
- All-wheel drive is standard
No other electric vehicle from Tesla, Porsche, Audi, or other luxury automakers can match the Lucid Air’s 514 mile max range. The next longest range EV is the Tesla Model S Long Range at 405 miles.
The key to the Lucid Air’s class-leading driving distance is its industry-leading aerodynamic design and motor design. Lucid also developed their own compact 112 kWh battery pack and power electronics, avoiding off-the-shelf solutions.
For those looking for both extremely long electric range along with blistering performance in a luxury package, the Lucid Air delivers an unmatched combination. It’s weird that in 2024, only 1 company crazy enough to make EV with 500 miles range.
