For a long time, Tesla has been considered the leader in the field of electric vehicles with the longest range. For example, the Model S Plaid has a range of 637 km, while the Roadster is predicted to have 998 km. But until the model hits the market, Tesla has a rival.
Lucid Motors recently revealed two new variations of the Air – Performance and Range electric car. Both options will get a twin-engine layout with four-wheel drive. The maximum speed is 270 km / h. The Performance powerplant will deliver 1,111 horsepower. The Range variation will have 933 horsepower. Acceleration from 0 to 97 km / h will require 2.5 and 2.7 seconds, respectively.
For example, a Tesla Model S Plaid electric car with 1,020 horsepower can accelerate from 0 to 97 km / h in 2 seconds.
The final figures for the autonomy of the Lucid Air have not yet been disclosed. In a recent test drive, journalist Johnny Lieberman rode the Range 716 kilometers from Los Angeles to San Francisco on a single charge. Also, driving tests in California showed a real range on a single charge of 764 km (Performance) and 834 km (Range).
The launch of sales has not yet been announced. The price will be $ 169 thousand (approximately 12.5 million rubles at the current exchange rate).
