Lucid releases UX 2.0, its most extensive software update.

Lucid has started the initial phase of the rollout of UX 2.0 to customer cars and will continue over the next several weeks.

EV manufacturer Lucid announced the release of Lucid UX 2.0, its most extensive software update thus far. The new update will bring dozens of new features to every Lucid Air.

This over-the-air update includes enhancements for virtually every user touchpoint in the car, including “instant-onGlass Cockpit and Pilot Panel displays; the introduction of Highway Assist for the DreamDrive advanced driver assistance system; redesigned on-screen layouts; and much more.

The highlights of the Lucid UX 2.0 are:

  • Highway Assist with active lane centering and adaptive cruise control, allowing for even greater driving comfort on long journeys.
  • Rear Pedestrian Collision Protection is now also enabled when the vehicle is in Drive and rolling backwards.
  • Improvements to visual cues for the Park Distance Warning feature.
  • High Beam Assist that detects not only other vehicles, but other sources of nearby light, and automatically switches to low beams when most appropriate.
  • Automatic headlight leveling with sensor-based adjustments for height and vehicle angle in relation to the ground.
  • New De-Ice Mode combines defrost, automatic wiper blade movement, and wiper fluid to clear ice that may be obstructing the view through the windshield.
  • A number of measures to make automatic locking and unlocking simpler, more intuitive, and more responsive with both the key fob and Mobile Key, as well as additional user-customizable settings.
  • “Instant-on” displays, so the car is ready to drive as soon as the driver sits down and buckles up.
  • New on-screen layout for the Glass Cockpit display, moving the controls for the most-used apps like Home, Navigation, Media, and Phone to make Lucid UX more ergonomically friendly than ever.
  • Updated Navigation and maps, with turn-by-turn directions now appearing on the center display directly ahead of the driver.
  • More-intelligent prediction of remaining range.
  • A more user-friendly browsing experience for third-party media apps.
  • Do more with Alexa Built-In voice control, such as changing the climate control settings for the rear seat.

Michael Bell, Senior Vice President of Digital, Lucid Group, said: This extensive software update, comprising tens of millions of new lines of source code across nearly every updateable computer in the vehicle, is achievable because the Lucid Air was engineered from the start with the capability to get better over time. Thanks to our integrated software and hardware engineering, Lucid has the in-house technical depth to enhance our vehicles long after they leave the assembly line.
