Lucid Offering Range and Performance Versions of Air Dream Edition

Pick your preference with new Lucid Dream Editions

  • Do you want 1,111 hp, or just 933 and 80 km more range?

  • Both versions offer around 1,000 hp, extremely long range


Upstart automaker Lucid has just announced two special Dream Editions of its Air electric vehicle, and the company is bringing you choice. The Lucid Air will offer Range and Performance dream editions, letting you pick either more power or more range for your dollar, though neither the range nor power versions are lacking in the other half of the equation.

The 2022 Lucid Air Dream Edition Performance boasts 1,111 hp from its dual-motor powertrain, giving it a quoted 0-100 km/h time of 2.5 seconds. The estimated range on that one will be about 80 km shy of the Range model. Tick the box for the Dream Edition Range and you get a measly 933 hp. Yeah, ok, that’s probably still more than enough, and the 0-100 should take just two tenths less and the cars offer the same top speed. Lucid predicts the range model will offer “500+” miles, or around 805 km on a single charge, which is a massive range for an EV. It’s not an official range estimate, though, as Lucid says it’s still working on EPA numbers.

Normally, the thought of trading 178 hp for 80 km of range would be a non-starter for us, but when the low-power option still has more power than just about anything you can buy, it changes the equation. Both models get the same battery, as well, a massive 113 kWh pack, helping them hit the long distances. It’s not clear exactly what changes happen to customise the two models, but we’ll assume they aren’t extensive. Both models are set to start from $169,000 in the US when they go on sale.

While there’s still no EPA range figure for the cars, Lucid put editors from Motor Trend behind the wheel of a pair of Dream Edition Range models to travel from LA to San Francisco. With those hot-shoes behind the wheel, one car offered 475 total miles of range and the other 517.
