See 2022 Lucid Air Dream Edition In Jay Leno’s Garage

In one of the latest episodes of Jay Leno’s Garage, we can take a closer look at the 2022 Lucid Air Dream Edition, the Performance version.

We must admit that this particular episode, in which Jay Leno was joined by Lucid Vice President of Design Design Derek Jenkins and Lucid CEO Peter Rawlinson, was one of the better ones.

Besides the general overview of the car, there were a lot of interesting insights about the company.

One of the main points underlined a few times is that the Lucid Air is an American product, designed and developed from the ground up in California and manufactured in Arizona. It has in-house developed and produced core components, including electric motors, inverters/power electronics, battery systems and software.

achievement. This car has more than 500 miles of range on a single charge, outstanding acceleration (geared for highway driving, rather than just 0-60 mph), can recharge at very high power, and also brings luxury to the next “modern” level (a bit different than the traditional approach).

Lucid still has a long way to go with the ramp-up phase in 2022, to maybe someday become as big as Tesla. But one thing is sure, having Lucid, Rivian and Tesla in the EV segment, should make us all – EV enthusiasts – really proud. Especially since over 10 years ago we often heard from the automotive industry gurus that EVs are just glorified golf carts. Remember, it is still just the beginning.
