Meet Lucid Air EV—the first car with Dolby Atmos
Introducing an upcoming electric vehicle that boasts a high-end speaker system to bring your music to life while you drive. Let's take a look at what to expect with Lucid Motor's 2022 release.
Lucid Motors will soon release its first electric vehicle—the Lucid Air EV. Not only is it exciting to see more electric alternatives on the road, but the Air EV will be the first car to offer Dolby Atmos speakers, as it boasts a 21-speaker system. This audio system will be a standard for its Air Grand Touring and Air Dream Edition models, which are set for release in 2022.
What will this speaker set-up offer?
The Lucid Air EV will consist of a 21-speaker setup with Dolby Atmos speakers that provide an immersive listening experience. Because, let’s face it, you want to accompany your commute with your favorite songs. The car’s interior will consist of front, rear, side, and overhead speakers. All of which will point towards passengers to create a sound movement. Best of all, these speakers are perfectly aligned for a natural fit—one that you probably couldn’t achieve yourself with self-installation.
In fact, the audio system’s placement is key for enhancing audio quality. Overhead speakers optimize a fuller surround area, which are aligned with lower speakers to create a fully dimensional experience for listening to music. So you’ll be able to feel the music moving overhead and encompassing your entire body.
Hear music like it was supposed to be heard
The Dolby Atmos integration lets you become connected to music at its full potential. Think of when you’re streaming music in HD how much more you can hear the lyrics and feel the creativity in a new way. When combined with the Surreal Sound system, Dolby Atmos can transform how you experience music, so you feel and hear it like never before.
In summary, models will be available in the second half of 2022. Prices start at $77,400 for the basic models. Or the Air Dream Edition will set you back $169,000.
