Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Lucid Air. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

NOTE: Lucid has not released details about the on-board charger of the Air. The information below is based on estimatation of the most likely on-board charger.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Car Uses Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 38h30m 6 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 24 hours 10 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 12 hours 19 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 230V / 3x16A 11 kW 8h15m 29 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 230V / 3x16A 11 kW † 8h15m 29 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Fastcharging is only possible at public charging points. Fastchargers enable longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. As fastcharges will only charge a battery up to 80% of its capacity at full speed, the optimal fastcharge is between 10% and 80% SoC. The fastcharge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for fastcharging the Lucid Air.

NOTE: Lucid has not released details about fast charging the Air. The information below is based on estimated values of the most likely fast charging capabilities.

Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)
Charging Point Car Uses Time Rate
CCS (50 kW DC) 50 kW 1h15m 140 mph
CCS (100 kW DC) 100 kW 35 min 270 mph
CCS (150 kW DC) 150 kW 25 min 380 mph
CCS (350 kW DC) 150 kW † 25 min 380 mph

† = Limited by fastcharge capabilities of vehicle

NOTE: Most rapid charges are currently limited to 50 kW. Chargers with more power are expected in the near future.

All about the Lucid Air

Concept car

This electric vehicle is a concept: data marked with * are estimates and other data might not be officially confirmed. The text below is written as if the Lucid Air would be available today. Please note that data for the final production version might differ significantly from the concept. The purpose of listing this concept vehicle is to give an insight in upcoming vehicles and EV trends.

Pricing

The Lucid Air has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £65,000. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Lucid Air is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £4,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Lucid Air is £60,500.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Lucid Air is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The estimated maximum power of the Lucid Air is 300 kW (402 hp). The estimated maximum torque is 443 lb-ft. The Lucid Air is rear wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in an estimated 5.0 seconds. The estimated top speed is 140 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Lucid Air has an estimated total capacity of 75 kWh. The usable capacity is 75 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 230 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 11 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 8 hours 15 minutes. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 12 hours and a charge rate of 19 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 38 hours 30 minutes.

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection (expected). The maximum rapid charge power is 150 kW, which charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 25 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 160 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Lucid Air is about 325 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 124 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

CO2 Emission

The Lucid Air emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
