In its first phase of construction, Electrify America will install over 2,000 DC ultra-fast chargers at around 500 sites in metro and highway locations across 40 states and 17 major cities.
Lucid selected Electrify America because of its DC power levels of up to 350 kW and network coverage. Lucid also likes Electrify America’s policy of locating its stations at safe and convenient charging locations that offer amenities like shopping, food and restrooms.
Lucid’s first vehicle, the Lucid Air sedan, is to begin production in 2020.
“Electrify America is proud to provide Lucid and its customers with our ultra-fast charging,” said Electrify America CEO Giovanni Palazzo. “Our high-powered, nationwide network of chargers is a great match with the EV technology offered by Lucid and a further opportunity to expand electric vehicle adoption in the US.”
“The groundbreaking battery technology we developed for the Lucid Air allows class-leading EPA range and ultra-fast charging with minimal cell degradation,” said Peter Rawlinson, Chief Technology Officer of Lucid. “Combining our technology with Electrify America’s network provides our customers with a comprehensive charging solution for their everyday lives.”
