Me & THE STIG test drive the 1,050hp Lucid Air!

Is the Lucid Air a worthy competitor to the Tesla Model S Plaid? Well, Mat’s about to find out!

He’s teamed up with Ben Collins, AKA The Stig, to put the Lucid Air through its paces up the Goodwood hill, and trust us when we say it’s absolutely out of this world!

But then again, it’s no surprise when you look at the stats. Powered by two electric motors, the Lucid Air is able to produce 1,050hp and 1,250Nm of torque. What’s more, even though it’s pretty heavy (weighing in at 2.4 tonnes), it can still hit 60mph in just 2.4 seconds!

However, the Lucid Air hasn’t just been produced for performance. Out on the road, it has a claimed range of 446 miles! So what do you think – is the Lucid Air better value for money over the Model S Plaid, with its starting price of $77,400? It’s time to find out!
