The 10 best features of the Lucid Air electric car

Yes, the Lucid Air is an excellent choice for those with environmental concerns. You could hook one up to a field of solar panels, and it would be an incredibly green mode of transportation. But that shouldn’t overshadow the fact that most of its specs put it on par with some hypercars.

The 1,111 horsepower is nothing to sniff at. The air also offers face-destroying acceleration levels, from 0-60 in just 2.5 seconds. That’s just 0.2 seconds slower than a Bugatti Chiron, at about 1/20th the price. lucid says the Air will cover a quarter of a mile in less than 10 seconds.

The only thing that keeps a Lucid Air from competing with hypercars on all fronts is its top speed. It will max out at “just” 168 mph. Buyers also have to choose between performance and vehicle range; you can’t have both. Or, more precisely, both cannot be pushed to their absolute limits on the same model. While the top speed remains at 168 mph, it doesn’t matter which version you choose.
