Lucid Group (NASDAQ:LCID) has announced initial customer deliveries of the Dream Edition launch versions of Lucid Air, a luxury all-electric sedan. The first group reservation holders are invited to take delivery of their vehicles on Saturday, October 30.

The Dream Delivery event follows the company’s start of production last month at Lucid’s factory based in Arizona.

Upon receipt of their cars, these initial customers will embark upon the inaugural Lucid Rally, hosted by members of the company’s leadership team on a route that showcases the vehicle’s ride, handling, and performance capabilities.

All Dream Edition models are equipped with a special 118kWh version of Lucid’s long-range battery pack, featuring 22 modules totalling 6,600 cylindrical cells with a chemistry engineered to optimize performance and range.

The Dream Edition Range achieves an estimated 520 miles on a single charge according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), making it the longest range for any electric car rated by the organisation.

It delivers 4.4 miles per kWh, a mark surpassed only by another version of Lucid Air, the Grand Touring, which features a 112kWh battery pack and achieves 4.6 miles per kWh.

Lucid plans to deliver 520 customer-configured Lucid Air Dream Editions, followed by deliveries of Lucid Air Grand Touring versions.

Touring and Pure models are anticipated for delivery to customers during 2022.

Peter Rawlinson, CEO and CTO, Lucid Group, says: “Creating the Lucid Air has truly been a labor of love, with customer deliveries representing the culmination of years of endeavor from the entire Lucid team. So I’m truly excited to hand the keys to our first dear customers and accompany them on an inaugural drive through the iconic California countryside.”
