Lucid Air has released a video of its incoming Air electric car which has beaten a Tesla Model S in a quarter-mile run. It clocked an insane 9.9-second time, beating the car by the world's most valuable company. 

"With up to 1,080 horsepower available in a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive package, the Lucid Air Dream Edition has achieved quarter-mile times as low as 9.9 seconds on a consistent basis, making it the world's quickest production sedan. This performance is wrapped in an uncompromisingly luxurious package, offering room for five passengers with class-leading interior and storage space," said the company in a release.

The Lucid Air is expected to be launched next week. This car has been in the works for a very long time. The EPA has given it a very impressive rating of 832 km which makes it better than the Tesla Model S. This was achieved by the Lucid Air Dream edition, though the video features a production prototype. 

One of the most interesting bits about the Lucid powertrain is that the drive unit and the inverter alone can pack 650 hp in a very small package. "Lucid's line of powerful, compact, and ultra-efficient motors are combined with integrated transmission and differential, as well as our high voltage, silicon-carbide MOSFET inverter, to create a state-of-the-art electric drive unit. Each unit packs over 650hp and can spin to 20,000RPM, yet weighs only 163lb (74kg) and is small enough to fit inside a standard aeroplane carry-on bag," said the company.
