Lucid Air thrashes Tesla Model S with sub-10 second quarter mile time
That makes it the world's quickest production sedan with over 1,000hp!
Ever since it came out back in 2012, the Tesla Model S has pretty much been the quickest thing on the road. Its EV battery packs made it so quick off the line and helped it perform so well in drag races that everything else struggled to keep up with it.
However, we are not in 2012 anymore, this is 2020 and more and more electric vehicles are being made. One of which is the Lucid Air and it has just knocked the crown off of any production Tesla.
Lucid Motors has released a video of its Air electric sedan thrashing the Tesla Model S in a quarter-mile race with an insanely impressive 9.9-second time. To put that into perspective, the Bugatti Veyron does it in 10.1 seconds.
But this isn't the only thing going for the Lucid Air as it has also just been tested by the EPA who managed to complete 517 miles on one charge, making it the highest range production EV money can buy. This is all thanks to its impressive charging capacity and battery pack architecture.
Lucid Motors claims the 'Air' has up to 1,080 horsepower available with the dual-motor and all-wheel-drive package. And that 'the Lucid Air Dream Edition has achieved quarter-mile times as low as 9.9 seconds on a consistent basis, making it the world’s quickest production sedan.'
The Lucid Air also claims to have battery technology from Formula E which comes as no surprise when you see how it performs.
The official production car is to be revealed on September 9th and Tesla should be worried because from what I can see, Lucid Motors seem to have it all.
