Lucid to build 520 Dream Editions to commemorate record-breaking 520 mile EPA range

Lucid is increasing production of its Air Dream Edition in order to match its best-ever EPA range

  • EPA range for the Lucid Air Dream Edition is 520 miles (836 kilometers)

  • The company increased production of the limited Dream Edition up to 520 units

  • All of the 520 Lucid Air Dream Edition are already reserved

The Lucid Air Dream Edition is the most expensive version of the new Lucid Air electric luxury sedan that is set to arrive by the end of the year.

The EPA recently released its official range figures for the limited Dream Edition and as the company expected, its 520 miles (836 kilometers) is the best range ever tested by the EPA, besting the Tesla Model S Long Range by over 100 miles (160 kilometers)

To commemorate this achievement, the company decided to increase production of the fully reserved Dream Edition up to 520 units, which means a number of customers that were previously on the waiting list will be able to buy the car after all.

The Lucid Air Dream Edition can be ordered in two trims, the Dream Edition R, which provides the 520 mile (836 kilometer) range and delivers 933 horsepower, enough to power the large sedan to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 2.7 seconds.

The second trim, called Dream Edition P is focused on performance. Its motors produce 1,111 horsepower, which drops the acceleration time by 0.2 seconds. Its range is lower however, at 471 miles (758 kilometers).

Torque numbers haven’t been specified yet, other than both versions will have more than 737 lb-ft (1,000 nm) of it.

Something to be aware of is that the quoted range figures are tested with the standard 19 inch wheels, the optional 21 inch rims will drop range to 481 miles (774 kilometers) for the Dream Edition R and 451 miles (725 kilometers) for the Dream Edition P.

Since demand is strong for the Lucid Air, reservations are complete for the Dream Edition models, even with the new increase in production. Cheaper models that aren’t limited editions are available for pre-order and deliveries are expected in 2023 for the entry-level model, that will start at $70,000 in the United States.
