Lucid Air Dream Edition owners have been taking delivery of their new cars without some key driver-assist features which were supposed to be included in the DreamDrive advanced drive-assist system.

Features like Surround and Rear View Monitoring, Blind Spot Display and Warnings and others were included.

Notably absent however was Adaptive Cruise Control, Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) and several other safety features.

The list of missing features was mentioned by CEO Peter Rawlinson in an email to owners last month, promising they would arrive in January through a free over-the-air (OTA) software update.

It arrived a little later than promised, but Lucid Air owners are now reporting they have received software update version 1.1.5.

According to a copy of the release notes shared by @drelectricauto on Twitter, it includes DreamDrive Part 2, which adds the missing features promised by Rawlinson in the email.

The Lucid Air Dream Edition owner also shared images of the settings where all the new features have been added.

Lucid’s DreamDrive advanced driver-assist system uses 32 multimodal sensors including camera, radar, ultrasonic sensors, as well as long-distance high resolution LiDAR.

Every “Dream Edition” Air sedan included DreamDrive as a standard feature.
