First Customers Picking Up Lucid Air EVs at Oct. 30 ‘Lucid Rally’

Lucid Motors, a company that originated in Silicon Valley, doesn’t let its factory’s remote location in the Phoenix suburb of Casa Grande, Arizona, keep it from pulling off Instagram-ready product positioning. The startup EV maker held a splashy start-of-production event at the plant in September, and on Saturday, October 30, it will bring together a group of customers in California to pick up their Dream Edition EVs, the launch version of the luxury Air sedan. As part of the “Dream Delivery” event, the customers get to participate with company executives in a Lucid Rally, then take home their personally configured cars.

These first Lucid owners will be those who placed reservations for the inaugural Dream Edition in either Range or Performance spec, starting at $169,000. Both cars are dual-motor, all-wheel-drive models that have an 118.0-kWh battery pack. The cars promise a top speed of 168 mph. Claimed range on the 1111-hp Performance model is 451 miles for the car with 21-inch wheels, or 471 miles with 19-inch wheels. As its name suggests, the 933-hp Range version offers more miles between charges: 481 or 520 miles, depending on wheel choice.
