By Staff Writer November 22, 2021 188

Lucid Air, a highline EV with technology wholly designed, developed, and manufactured in-house, has won MotorTrend’s Car of the Year award.

“Earning this coveted distinction for Lucid Air, our very first car, is a resounding endorsement of our ability to deliver the most advanced electric vehicles in the world,” said Peter Rawlinson, CEO/CTO, Lucid Group. “Our objective of achieving range through efficiency and technical innovation is crystallized in Lucid Air, and we’re elated that this effort has been recognized by MotorTrend against such formidable competition from well-established automakers.”

MotorTrend Car of the Year judges evaluated six key criteria for Car of the Year: efficiency, value, advancement in design, engineering excellence, safety, and performance of the intended function. The Lucid Air was evaluated side by side with 24 highly regarded vehicles, coming out on top against finalists that included the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Mercedes-Benz EQS, Porsche Taycan, Honda Civic, and many more.

“With the longest driving range of any electric vehicle on the market, an EPA estimated 520 miles, and over 1,100 horsepower available, the Lucid Air is a technological tour de force,” said Ed Loh, MotorTrend Group. “The sleek futuristic Lucid Air sedan looks like nothing else on the road, while its gorgeous, smartly packaged interior sets the standard for the next generation of luxury cars. Against our award’s criteria, there could be no doubt—the Lucid Air is MotorTrend’s 2022 Car of the Year.”
