NEWARK, CA — June 21, 2022 — Lucid Group, Inc., (NASDAQ: LCID) today announced that the Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance will make its public debut at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed, from June 23-26. This all-electric luxury sedan will make multiple runs up the iconic Goodwood Hillclimb each day of the festival, piloted by professional driver Ben Collins.
With 1,050 horsepower (783 kW), the dual-motor, all-wheel-drive Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance is the most powerful electric vehicle currently available in North America – and with an EPA-estimated driving range of 446 miles, still more than any other brands’ electric vehicles, it doesn’t compromise.
Although the Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance is currently available only in the US and Canada, two Lucid Air models that will be offered in Europe will also be on display at the Electric Avenue area throughout the event: Lucid Air Dream Edition Performance, with 1,111 hp (828 kW) and an estimated 900 km* of driving range; and Lucid Air Grand Touring, Lucid’s initial volume product, with 819 hp (611 kW). Further information about Lucid’s launch plans for Europe can be found here.
The year 2022 is shaping up to be a seminal year for Lucid on a global scale, with deliveries of Lucid Air Grand Touring and Grand Touring Performance in progress to customers in North America, the opening of the company’s first European Studio in Munich, Germany, and the announcement of its first overseas manufacturing facility in Saudi Arabia.
