Pushing for a record break and actually breaking a record is worth all the time spent in actualizing it, Lucid Group would celebrate after Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certified Lucid Air Dream Edition Range Model as the longest range travelled by EVs with 520 miles in a single charge. This feat is worth celebrating after keeping to their word. Lucid Air Dream Edition Range Model 520 miles run on a single charge beat Tesla’s Model S Long Range by 108 miles.
Peter Rawlinson, Lucid’s CEO and CTO, said: “I’m delighted that our Lucid Air Dream Edition Range has been officially accredited with a range of 520 miles by the EPA, a number I believe to be a new record for any electric vehicle. Crucially, this landmark has been achieved by Lucid’s world-leading, in-house electric vehicle technology, not by simply installing an oversize battery pack.” Peter Rawlinson worked for Tesla during the development of Tesla Model S Long Range, so it’d definitely be a joy to him personally that one of his works beat another.

With its 19-inch wheels Lucid Air Dream Range Edition reaches 520 miles but on a 21-inch wheel reaches 481 miles; Lucid Air Dream Performance Edition can go 471 miles on 19-inch wheels and 451 miles on 21-inch wheels; Lucid Grand Tourer goes 516 miles on 19-inch wheels and 469 miles on 21-inch wheels.
