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||Max. Power||Power||Time||Rate|
|Wall Plug (2.3 kW)||230V / 1x10A||2.3 kW||56h15m||7 mph|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||35 hours||12 mph|
|1-phase 32A (7.4 kW)||230V / 1x32A||7.4 kW||17h30m||23 mph|
|3-phase 16A (11 kW)||400V / 3x16A||11 kW||11h45m||34 mph|
|3-phase 32A (22 kW)||400V / 3x32A||22 kW †||6 hours||68 mph|
† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.
Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)
Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge 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 rapid charging the Lucid Air.
Lucid has not released details about rapid charging the Air. The information below is based on estimated values of the most likely rapid charging capabilities.
- Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
- Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
- Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
- Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
|Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)|

Actual charging rates may differ from data shown due to factors like outside temperature, state of the battery and driving style.
All about the Lucid Air
The Lucid Air has an estimated On The Road Price (OTR) of £150,000. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Lucid Air is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Lucid Air is 805 kW (1080 hp). The maximum torque is . The Lucid Air is all wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in an estimated 2.8 seconds. The top speed is 168 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Lucid Air has an estimated total capacity of 113 kWh. The usable capacity is 110 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 405 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.
For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 295 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 565 mi.
Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 22 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 6 hours. 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 17 hours 30 minutes and a charge rate of 23 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 56 hours 15 minutes.
Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection (expected). The maximum rapid charge power is 300 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 240 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 25 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 280 miles of range.
The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Lucid Air is about 270 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 149 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. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 370 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 190 Wh per mile.
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.
