Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance first drive

WWe were impressed with the Lucid Air Dream Edition earlier this year despite it only being a pre-production vehicle. Well, the automaker gave time behind the wheel of its latest top-of-the-line Grand Touring Performance model with all the right bits of hardware and software ready to go. This is a Lucid you can actually buy – although the starting price is $179,000. We have to say it’s better than expected.

The Grand Touring and Grand Touring Performance deliver on Lucid’s promise to take on the German sports sedans in an all-EV package. The fledgling automaker was so confident in the 1,050hp performance trim level that it brought it to the Goodwood Festival Hill Climb and won the production vehicle category. The regular $154,000 Grand Touring model is a bit slower — it takes 3 seconds to hit 60 MPH instead of 2.6 in performance — but you get another 70 miles of range (516 total compared to the 446 of the Performance).

All in all, the Lucid Air GT models are more than just fast electric sedans. Check out the video below for the full story.
