Efficiency Watch: The 500-Mile Lucid Air Has a 113 kWh Battery Pack

It wasn’t too long ago when Tesla Model S broke the 400-mile range barrier and became the most efficient production EV. Then came Tesla’s party pooper, the Lucid Air, which claimed to beat the Model S’ range with ease. Many people expected it to beat the 402 miles of range by just a small margin, but Lucid Air achieved an EPA-estimated range of 517 miles, which is almost 30-percent more than its rival. There was a lot of speculation surrounding the size of the battery pack, but we now know that it was achieved on a 113 kWh pack.
