Watch Lucid Air Performance Testing: 0-60 MPH And 1/4 Mile – InsideEVs

It’s time for some drag racing of the newly launched Lucid Air Dream Edition – Performance version – which has a system output of about 1,111 hp (828 kW) and 1,025 lb-ft (1,390 Nm). Comparable to the Tesla Model S Plaid.

DragTimes recently had an opportunity to overview and test the car, which is actually one of the first independent tests of the Lucid Air.

“We head up to Hennessey Performance to review and test out the all new Lucid Air Dream Performance edition with John and Sanjay.”

According to the manufacturer, the car should achieve (on a prepared track surface) a 0-60 mph time in 2.42 seconds, while the quarter-mile time is 9.67 seconds @149.87 mph.

In the test, the results, measured by dragy, were slightly lower, but still amazing, as the car – in Sprint Mode and Launch Control – achieved 0-60 mph in 2.88 s and 1/4 mile in 10.04 s @ 142.59 mph. With a subtracted rollout it would probably be close to the manufacturer’s claim.
