MotorTrend announced Nov. 15 the Lucid Air has won the 2022 MotorTrend Car of the Year, the first instance in which the initial product from a new automotive brand has been awarded the "Golden Calipers." 

MotorTrend's Car of the Year award is considered one of the most prestigious in the automotive industry. The win affirms Lucid Air as the new EV benchmark, with the most advanced electric powertrain available today---technology wholly designed, developed and manufactured in-house.

 

"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, with Lucid Air excelling at each: 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 MotorTrend Group Head of Editorial Ed Loh. "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."

 

Lucid recently started customer deliveries of Lucid Air, an EV with a revolutionary approach to automotive layout and engineering packaging that capitalizes on the miniaturization of Lucid's in-house developed EV powertrain and battery pack. The result is a large and luxurious interior cabin within a beautiful, streamlined exterior design along with a relatively compact footprint.
