Lucid unveiled a high-performance EV that can go from zero to 60 mph in less than two seconds
Lucid Motors announced the new Lucid Air Sapphire Edition, a top-of-the-line sedan that can go from zero to 60 mph in under two seconds, zero to 100 mph in under four seconds, and the quarter-mile in under nine seconds.
That’s huge in a full-size, all-electric luxury sedan, and it might make the new sapphire blue vehicle the most powerful production sedan on the market, surpassing the previous record-holder, the Tesla Model S Plaid.
The new Sapphire Edition, which was unveiled on Friday at Monterey Car Week, combines many elements from Lucid’s lower trim vehicles, including the Dream Edition and the Grand Touring Performance Edition. First, the new Air has three engines, two in the back and one in the front, which Lucid claims increases the projected horsepower to 1,200.
