First Camo-Free Drive In A Lucid Air Pleases The Boss

A drive through California’s Bay Area shows that the Lucid Air is ready for the buying public


  • The driven car is the final pre-production version.

  • The Boss is Lucid Motors CEO Peter Rawlinson.


Clearly, we can’t take everything Lucid Motors CEO Peter Rawlinson says about the Air as the absolute truth – he has something of a stake in the car’s success. In a first camo-free drive of the Lucid Air, we do, however, get a sense that car is going to be good to drive.

Lucid Motors has tweeted a video of CEO Rawlinson taking the final pre-production version of the Air sedan on a road test. The commentary indicates that the ride quality is up to his expectations only a few minor tweaks need to completed before the car is ready for delivery.

The tested car was assembled at Lucid’s factory in Arizona. Based on the simple “it’s got 1,000 horsepower” comment and the visible wheels around the 2:24 mark, we assume he’s driving the limited-run Lucid Air Dream Edition.

The Dream Edition will be the first to officially leave the assembly line. It’s the Dream Edition because the $169,000 car gets the 1,080 horsepower dual-motor setup. The 0-60 mph sprint flies by in 2.5 seconds and 7.4 seconds later, the 1/4 mile is over and done with. The maximum range for the Dream Edition is set at 530 miles, or 809 km.
