Company Expects Canadian Deliveries in Spring 2022; Announces Collaborates with Electrify Canada
NEWARK, Calif. – Lucid Group, setting new standards with the longest range, fastest charging electric car on the market, today announced the official opening of its newest Studio location at the Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto, Ontario. This location serves as the second location in Canada and 23rd in the company’s growing North American retail network. The company expects to begin Canadian deliveries of the Lucid Air in Spring 2022.
The company has collaborated with Electrify Canada to offer those who reserve a Lucid Air by June 30, 2022, two years of complimentary charging on the rapidly growing charging network. Designed to Combined Charging System (CCS) standards and compatible with any open DC fast charging station, the Lucid Air Grand Touring is capable of the fastest charging speeds of any production car available today.¹
With 150 kilowatt (kW) and 350 kW chargers, Electrify Canada provides some of the fastest charging available in the country, allowing Lucid Air owners to charge up to 350 kilometers in just 15 minutes for models with 900+V architecture connected to 350kW chargers.
“Opening a Studio at the largest shopping destination in Canada will help us elevate the brand in Canada as we continue to expand in North America,” said Zak Edson, Vice President of Sales and Service, Lucid. “We are looking forward to seeing the longest-range EV driving, and charging, on Canadian roads soon.”
Designed in Silicon Valley and produced in Arizona, Lucid Air delivers next-level efficiency from Lucid’s in-house developed and manufactured powertrain technology. The lineup features models offering 516 miles (830 kilometers) of EPA-estimated range on a single charge and industry-leading efficiency of 4.6 miles (7.4 kilometers) per kWh on Grand Touring models.
Every Lucid Studio offers a digitally oriented luxury experience tailored to each customer’s preferences, whether they visit in-person, make inquiries entirely online, or combine the two. It allow customers to experience the brand and obtain information about its products in locations that underscore the company’s unique design aesthetic.
