1 place: Bright air

There can only be one champion, and that fool! The 2022 Lucid Air Dream Edition Range covered 505 miles of its estimated range of 520 miles on our lap, and we wouldn’t envy the 16-plus hour driver. In addition to this monumental result, this car also makes 933 horsepower and accelerates to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds—a remarkable result considering it was riding on performance-oriented all-season tires. That kind of perfection doesn’t come cheap, though—one of these early Air models will set you back more than $170,000. There’s a more affordable Lucid Air Pure on the way, and it’s estimated to get 406 miles for about $80,000.

Lucid’s focus is clearly on the Mercedes EQS, with the top-of-the-line AMG EQS priced at more than $150,000. This EQS still doesn’t match the power of the Lucid, but it beats it when it comes to luxury and build quality. Then again, Mercedes has had over a century to perfect it, while the Lucid name has only been around for a few years. If his first record is any indication, Lucid is a force to be reckoned with.
