The new Lucid Gravity electric SUV, revealed this week in Los Angeles, will receive a limited-edition range-topping 'Dream' variant set to offer well over 440 miles of range.
The Gravity has been revealed in just one form so far, with the brand only publishing limited technical details, but it has confirmed a maximum range for the standard car of 440 miles.
Asked if the firm will launch a longer-range Dream edition, as it did with the Air saloon in 2021, company CEO Peter Rawlinson all but confirmed it's in the pipeline: "I won't be denying it. Am I that predictable?" he said.
The 2021 Lucid Air Dream edition is certified as the longest-range EV on sale in America, according to that country's EPA homologation cycle, capable of 520 miles between charges, courtesy of a 120kWh battery pack.
As a reference to that number, its build run was limited to 520 units, and Rawlinson has strongly suggested the same will be true for the longest-range Gravity.
"With Gravity, it will be over 440 miles," he said, referencing the headline range figure revealed at the SUV's unveiling. "I'm not saying a number yet, because other people will announce other cars."
"If we were to do, hypothetically, a Gravity Dream Edition, it might be limited to over 440 units...".
The Gravity's claimed 440-mile range is already set to make it one of the longest-legged SUVs on sale, so a significant increase would put a Dream Edition variant well clear of its rivals.
Notably, the Air Dream Edition also brought a significant power boost to 1111bhp, to give the saloon a 0-62mph time of just 2.5 seconds, so it's likely that the similarly conceived top-rung Gravity will be one of the fastest SUVs ever produced.
Rawlinson stopped short of revealing when Lucid will reveal the Gravity Dream Edition, but the Air Dream Edition was detailed only two months after the standard car, in 2020.
Even as standard, the new seven-seater claims "sports car performance", with a 3.5sec 0-62mph time, courtesy of being equipped with "the most power-dense EV motors in production globally". Yet it's also able to carry more than 700kg onboard and tow loads of nearly three tonnes.
Chief engineer Eric Bach referred to the Gravity as "an environmentally friendly, versatile electric vehicle with the spirit of a supercar".
Like the Air, it comes with 900V charging hardware, which means 200 miles can be theoretically added in as little as 15 minutes - making it one of the fastest-charging production cars in the world.
