0-60 MPH and 1/4 Mile

It's time for some drag racing of the newly launched Lucid Air Dream Edition - Performance version - which has a system output of around 1,111 hp (828 kW) and 1,025 lb-ft (1,390 Nm). Comparable to Tesla Model S Plaid.

DragTimes recently had the opportunity to survey and test the car, which is actually one of the first independent tests of Lucid Air.

"We're taking up Hennessey Performance to review and test the all-new Lucid Air Dream Performance edition with John and Sanjay."

According to the manufacturer, the car should achieve (on a prepared track) a 0-60 mph time of 2.42 seconds, while the quarter-mile time is 9.67 seconds @ 149.87 mph.

In the test, the results, measured by dragy, were a little lower, but still amazing, as the car - in Sprint Mode and Launch Control - achieved 0-60 mph in 2.88 s and 1/4 mile in 10.04 s @ 142.59 mph. With a deductible rollout, it would likely be close to the manufacturer's claim.

Test 1

  • 0-60 mph in 2.93 s
  • 1/8 mile at 6.77 s @ 112.59 mph
  • 60-130 mph in 5.62 s
  • 1/4 mile at 10.21 s @ 143.37 mph
  • 100-150 mph in 5.52 s

Test 2

  • 0-60 mph in 2.91 s
  • 1/8 mile at 6.67 s @ 114.03 mph
  • 60-130 mph in 5.46 s
  • 1/4 mile at 10.09 s @ 142.92 mph

Test 3

  • 0-60 mph in 2.88 s
  • 1/8 mile at 6.61 s @ 114.72 mph
  • 60-130 mph in 5.50 s
  • 1/4 mile at 10.04 s @ 142.59 mph

In the next episode, the Lucid Air Dream Edition Performance will drive against a Tesla Model S and Porsche Taycan.
