Lucid Group announced initial customer deliveries of the Dream Edition launch versions of Lucid Air, which sets new benchmarks in range and efficiency for electric vehicles. The first group of Dream Edition reservation holders are invited to take delivery of their vehicles on Saturday, October 30. Highlights will be shared on Lucid’s social media channels throughout the weekend. The Dream Delivery event follows the company’s start of production last month at Lucid’s factory in Casa Grande, Arizona, the first greenfield, dedicated electric vehicle manufacturing facility in North America.

All Dream Edition models are equipped with a special 118kWh version of Lucid’s long-range battery pack, featuring 22 modules totaling 6,600 cylindrical cells with a chemistry engineered to optimize performance and range. The Dream Edition Range achieves an estimated 520 miles on a single charge according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), making it the longest range for any electric car rated by the organization. It delivers 4.4 miles per kWh, a mark surpassed only by another version of Lucid Air, the Grand Touring, which features a 112kWh battery pack and achieves 4.6 miles per kWh. The Dream Edition Performance model offers 1,111 horsepower, achieving a 0-60 mph time of just 2.42 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 9.67 seconds (with the 21″ wheels and tire package) – while still capable of an EPA-estimated 471 miles of range (with the 19″ wheel and tire package).

Lucid plans to deliver 520 customer-configured Lucid Air Dream Editions, followed by deliveries of Lucid Air Grand Touring versions. Touring and Pure models are anticipated for delivery to customers during 2022.
