 Lucid Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: LCID), setting new standards for luxury electric experience with the Lucid Air, America’s most awarded new luxury vehicle,¹ announced details about the 2024 Lucid Air Grand Touring, with an array of enhancements to help people drive farther and charge faster in a broader range of environments and conditions.

The 2024 Lucid Air Grand Touring features:

  • Range to Spare, Even in Cold Air: EPA electric range test procedures recently became more challenging, but the 2024 Air Grand Touring still delivers, with an EPA-estimated range of 516 miles² – the longest range of any EV in the U.S. market today. Now equipped with the heat pump from the Air Sapphire, the GT is even more capable of delivering outstanding range even in extremely cold conditions.
  • More Efficiency, More Sustainable Performance: Enhancements to Lucid’s proprietary motor design, battery cell chemistry, and thermal characteristics reduce energy wasted as heat and enable the car to perform at its best even during sustained spirited driving.
  • Faster Fast Charging: Get back on the road more quickly, with about 15-30% faster DC charging.³ Improved automatic preconditioning en route to the charging station enables faster charging once you plug in.

“The Air Grand Touring is our longest-range car – in fact the longest-range EV available today – and is now further optimized with a multitude of powertrain updates, including the Air Sapphire heat pump.” said Peter Rawlinson, CEO and CTO at Lucid. “The Air Grand Touring has retained its 516-mile range estimate, achieving this despite more-stringent EPA testing. More importantly, it delivers improved range and efficiency in a broader range of everyday, real-world conditions.”
