Lucid Motors Releases Lucid Air OTA Software Update v1.2.75 With EPS, Steering, Towing & Break-In Alert Improvements

July 21, 2022

Lucid Motors has released version 1.2.75 of the Lucid Air vehicle software that adds several EPS improvements, power steering fix, improved tow and break-in alert to avoid false alarms, especially in hot weather, and communication error fix.

The shock and tilt alerts bug was one of those pesky bugs that bothered a number of Lucid Air customers, good to see Lucid Motors fixed that.

What’s New in Version 1.2.75

Lucid Motors wrote, “in this update, we’re delivering improvements to your Electric Power Steering (EPS) and Tow & Break-In Alert, as well as other minors updates. Before beginning this update, make sure your vehicle is not plugged in.”

  • We made several EPS improvements for enhanced dynamics attributes and better DreamDrive performance
  • We corrected an issue affecting the availability of power steering when the vehicle powers on
  • We improved Tow & Break-In Alert to reduce false alarms, especially in hot weather
  • We fixed a communication error that could temporarily reduce the amount of torque delivered by your motors, resulting in slower speeds.

The prior version was version 1.2.7 released around July 11th, which improved the cars software features, specifically improving the over-the-air (OTA) updates. The update comes about a month after version 1.2.6 and almost two months after version 1.2.5 was released. In v1.2.6 Lucid Motors added new languages, key fob improvements, traffic sign recognition, navigation, offline navigation mode, more interactive maps, improved range estimates, other navigation updates, and other minor updates. Version 1.2.5 added new languages, improves key fob, traffic sign recognition was added, and other minor updates.

In this new version, 1.2.7 Lucid Motors added several EPS improvements, a power steering fix, improved tow, and break-in alert to avoid false alarms, especially in hot weather, and a communication error fix. These release notes were posted in the Lucid Owners Forum by hellolucid. Here is a screenshot shared by Alex in the forums:

The update takes about 23 minutes to install.

The first hint I got on this was on Twitter:

If I spot screenshots, I will update this story but for now, it seems like this is a super minor update to improve the over-the-air updates going forward.
