Lucid Air Will Deliver Late October As Tesla Model S Sales Falter – MotorBiscuit

Lucid will start delivering its sedans in late October, it announced on Tuesday evening, mounting a challenge to its closest competitor, Tesla. The Lucid Air’s street-wide arrival is long overdue. It was announced in 2016, was supposed to arrive in the second half of 2021, and faced additional delays, until finally, Lucid announced its imminent arrival in the third quarter.

News broke recently that Lucid’s Air can go 520 miles under its top-end “Dream Edition Range” trim. The Model S is only capable of 405 miles to a charge, as advertised on Tesla’s website. For this capability, the Model S starts at $90,000, while the Lucid Air Dream Edition Range starts at $169,000. It’s a considerable hike in price but has a lot more power. Lucid has accepted more than 13,000 reservations of the Air and ceased taking orders of the Dream Edition Range.
