When MotorTrend tested the Model S Plaid in 2021, they broke all production car records. 0-60 in 1.98 seconds — with a long list of unique variables, including a prepared surface with VHT (glue), and deleting the first foot of rollout. Astonishingly, the Lucid can match that number, on a public road! The Lucid Air Sapphire’s acceleration is certifiably bonkers.

Jason Fenske and Jason Cammisa will talk through the various systems that make this car possible, and how it achieves such insane results. Questions covered include:
1). Why is the 1,234 HP Lucid so much faster than the 1,111 HP Lucid?
2). Why is the Lucid’s 0-60 time (acceleration) faster than its 60-0 time (braking)?
3). Why are the fastest EVs the heaviest EVs?
4). What is your favorite thing about the Lucid Air Sapphire?
5). What is your biggest complaint of the Lucid Air Sapphire?
6). Is the Lucid Air Sapphire worth $250k, especially considering the Tesla Model S Plaid is $90k?
