Lucid says its first electric car drove 445 miles from Los Angeles to San Francisco without charging

  • Date: 08/25/2021

Electric-vehicle startup Lucid Motors is on the cusp of delivering its first vehicle: the Air sedan. But it still faces the daunting task of convincing shoppers to go with an untested upstart over a proven EV maker like its biggest rival, Tesla.

There's one key edge that Lucid may have over Elon Musk: range. Lucid proved that the Air gives Tesla's best cars a run for their money and then some during a recent journey in the car with Motor Trend.

Lucid claims the limited-run Air Dream Edition, its first vehicle, can travel up to 517 miles on a full battery, over 100 miles more than the Tesla Model S, which has dominated the range game for years.
