Lucid: E-car Air Sapphire accelerates to 100 km/h in 2 seconds

Lucid presents the Air Sapphire, its most powerful electric car to date. It should even be able to outshine Tesla’s S Plaid model. The car was unveiled at the Monterrey Car Week.

From 0 to 100 in two seconds

The product presentation particularly emphasizes that the electric car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in about two seconds. This is worth mentioning not only because it is an e-car, but also and especially because the Air Sapphire is not a small sports car, but a fully equipped sedan.

Acceleration is made possible by three motors, two of which are mounted at the rear and one at the front. According to the manufacturer, the total output of the e-car is 880 kW. Lucid has not yet commented on the torque. The dual drive at the rear can distribute power individually to each rear wheel. This is intended to ensure particular stability and control over the car. In addition, the powertrain features new heat exchange technology and an increased coolant flow rate compared with the predecessor model. This allows waste heat to be dissipated more effectively, which benefits the engine in the long term.

For the brakes, Lucid relies on carbon ceramic technology. The (familiar) features are rounded off by 20-inch wheels at the front and 21-inch wheels at the rear. On the other hand, nothing is yet known about the battery used and its range – particularly interesting factors.

Price and availability

It is not yet known when the vehicle will be available. Lucid is currently struggling with huge supply chain issues. In early August, the company announced that it had again lowered its forecast for this year’s production numbers. While Lucid originally planned to produce 20,000 vehicles this year, the forecast is now 6,000 to 7,000 cars. So it is quite possible that interested parties will have to wait some time here. The price for the vehicle will start at $249,000. A Euro price has not yet been announced.
