The Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance uses the same 118 kWh battery pack as the Air Dream Edition. That pack is 6 kWh more than the 112 kWh battery pack found in the regular Grand Touring version.
To note, the Lucid Air Grand Touring Sedan comes with 819-horsepower and a range of up to 520 miles on a single charge. The Lucid Air Grand Touring can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in three seconds.
Meanwhile, the Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance can accelerate from 0-60 miles in 2.6 seconds, almost half a second faster. Both models are equipped with an ultra-fast 900 volt+ charging system that can add 300 miles to the battery in 21 minutes with a 350 kilowatt DC fast charger.
Last year, Lucid sold a limited edition Lucid Air Dream Edition which only sold 520 units. The Lucid Air Grand Touring will be a test for manufacturers to compete in the EV market with several old automakers already stating their electrification targets.
Peter Rawlinson, CEO of Lucid Group, said that the Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance answers consumer demand for higher-performance variants.
The Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance includes the latest technologies such as a 34-inch floating glass cockpit with 5K resolution; LED Intelligent Micro Lends Array headlights, Lucid's self-developed solid-state system and DreamDrive Pro, Lucid's first automotive lidar advanced driver assistance system.
The Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance will be priced at $179,000 and will begin shipping in June.
