A study on the speed of charging within 20 minutes found that Tesla is not the fastest to charge its electric vehicles, as Lucid clearly outperformed it.
Tests by B3 Relay showed that Lucid Air Grand Turing could recover up to 208 miles (335 km) of range during a 20-minute cargo session and recovered 124 miles (200 km) of range within 10 minutes.
Thanks to this performance, Lucid Air Grand Turing overtook the second-ranked Tesla Model S Blade by more than seven percent, recovering 193 miles (311 km) of driving range in 20 minutes.
Lucid’s real feature was the battery capacity that she successfully recovered within the second 10 minutes of the charge period.
During the first half of the session
During the first half of the session, Lucid recovered a battery capacity of only one mile (1.6 km) more
than Model S Blade, and three miles (5 km) less than the Kia EV6 LR RWD, which finished third.
During the second half of the cargo session, Lucid was able to obtain 84 miles (135 km) of range,
an increase of 14 miles (22 km) compared to Tesla, and 20 miles (32 km) compared to Kia.
B3 Group asserts that a 20-minute shipping session is an important criterion for consumers to look
at, given its impact on real-world driving.
While the study excludes electric drivers waiting until the car’s battery is fully charged at public charging
stations, the battery capacity they can get from a short charging session is likely to affect their driving habits.
Although Tesla did not top the list, its electric vehicles were among the best performers.
Model S, Model Y and Model 3 have occupied three positions among the fastest five vehicles in this test.
Tesla Model Y and Model 3 are much lower than Lucid Air Grand Turing, which starts at $139,650.
