Lucid Air wins a 1035hp Grand Touring Performance model Car News

The Lucid Air got a new Grand Touring Performance model, which the American electric vehicle manufacturer claims is the most powerful electric vehicle in North America.

The model is powered by two electric motors producing a total output of 1035 hp for a 0-100 km/h sprint in just 2.6 seconds. The firm claims a range of up to 446 miles.

It’s an improvement over the already powerful standard Grand Touring model, which has 819bhp and a 0-62mph time of 3.0 seconds. The Grand Touring also offers a slightly longer range than the Performance version, with a claimed maximum distance between charges of 516 miles.

Peter Rawlinson, CEO and CTO of Lucid Group, said: “The Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance responds to the strong demand we continue to see for higher performance versions of the Lucid Air.

“The remarkable speed with which we are able to design and bring this model to market is only possible because of Lucid’s high degree of vertical integration and the in-house production of our proprietary EV powertrain and battery technology. .”

As standard, the Grand Touring and Grand Touring Performance are equipped with a canopy glass roof, a 34.0-inch cockpit screen with 5k resolution, heated front seats, LED headlights and more than 30 driver assistance functions.

Each car sits on 21-inch wheels with bespoke Pirelli tyres, but the Performance model gets an exclusive alloy design. Five exterior colors are available: Stellar White, Cosmos Silver, Zenith Red, Infinite Black and Quantum Grey.

Both variants can charge at speeds of up to 350kW, which Lucid says can add up to 300 miles in 21 minutes.

The Air Grand Touring Performance is priced at $179,000 (£137,000) in the US, where first deliveries are due to start in June 2022. However, there are no plans to sell it in the UK.
