Special Edition Lucid Dreams Involve Plenty of Power, Range



Lucid has two new versions of the limited-edition Dream Edition in queue — one that focuses on power and one that focuses on range.

Naturally, their names reflect this focus — they are the Dream Edition Performance and Dream Edition Range.

The former has 1,111 horsepower (not a typo), while the latter makes 933 ponies. Official range estimates from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are currently being worked out, but the company touts a real-world test it conducted with Motor Trend as showing estimated ranges of 475 and 517 miles for the two cars involved. Those estimates are based on the computer’s suggested remaining range after the drive. Both cars traveled 445 miles, and one showed 30 miles of remaining range while the other showed 72.

“As a technology company, we seek to exceed expectations and this is clearly evident with our Lucid
Air Dream Edition Performance and Range variants,” said Peter Rawlinson, CEO and CTO, Lucid
Group, in a statement. “I’m delighted to provide our Dream Edition customers with this additional choice and breadth of capabilities.”

If you hold a reservation for a Dream Edition, expect to hear from Lucid soon regarding which version of the $169,000 car you’d like. As a reminder, both vehicles use a dual-motor setup and all-wheel drive.

Deliveries of the Dream Edition are slated to begin late this year, with the Lucid Air Grand Touring following shortly behind.
