The Lucid Air Dream Edition was recently rated by the Environmental Protection Agency with an estimated driving range of 520 miles on a full charge. This is the longest range of any battery-powered car yet rated by the EPA, including Tesla’s Model S Long Range. The Air goes an estimated 115 miles farther on a charge than the Tesla variant, going every farther than most gasoline cars go on a full tank.
For any locals considering getting their hands on this $169,000 vehicle, this means that you can cross Malta from side to side around 30.5 times on a single charge. Lucid’s chief executive Peter Rawlinson however stated that the distance isn’t actually important. Rawlinson thinks that efficiency will determine the winners and losers of the electric car future. The greater energy efficiency will make such vehicles more accessible at all price ranges.
