LOS ANGELES: Lucid Motors has unveiled new details about the full Lucid Air model range, including the pricing of the entry model of the range, called Lucid Air.
The base model offers 653km of projected range and 480hp available from US$69,900.
The Lucid Air model kicks off the full range of performance luxury EV sedans, which includes Lucid Air Touring, Grand Touring, and Dream Edition versions. Customers can now reserve this new more attainable model of Lucid Air for US$300 at www.lucidmotors.com/air/reserve.
"Our vision from the beginning – what drives this company – is creating the world's best EV technology while making it progressively more attainable over time. With the starting price of the Lucid Air range announced today (Oct 14), we are setting the stage for broader adoption of the latest, game-changing EV technology," said Lucid Motors CEO/CTO Peter Rawlinson.
The Lucid Air features a single-motor powertrain with an optional dual-motor, all-wheel drive configuration. It has a 900V+ ultra-high voltage electrical architecture with DC fast charging capability.
Customers who reserve it now will receive three years of complimentary charging at Electrify America's extensive nationwide network of ultrafast charging stations.
Packaging efficiency capitalises on Lucid's advanced miniaturised drivetrain to provide the interior space of a full-size luxury vehicle while maintaining the exterior footprint of a mid-size performance sedan. Lucid says this enables high aerodynamic efficiency and increased agility and maneuverability, all while enveloping occupants in a carefully crafted atmosphere with meticulous attention to detail.
Luxurious appointments for the Lucid Air model include PurLuxe animal-free interior trim in the Mojave theme, the 34" Lucid Glass Cockpit curved, floating display, and the largest frunk ever fitted to an electric sedan. Furthermore, the Lucid Air model is also available with DreamDrive, a new benchmark in advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). This first-of-its-kind platform is exclusive to the full Lucid Air range, combining what it claims the most comprehensive sensor suite on the market with a cutting-edge driver monitoring system.
Alongside the Lucid Air, the Lucid Air Touring model offers yet another step up in luxury, performance, and efficiency, available from US$87,500.
Interior appointments include an available Glass Canopy Roof for an extravagant sense of space, the Lucid Glass Cockpit Display, and a wide range of choices for interior materials and finishes. It also includes a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive drive configuration that takes advantage of an ultra-efficient, energy-dense drivetrain to deliver.
Reservations for Lucid Air and Lucid Air Touring, as well as the other models in the Lucid Air range, are open now and can be placed at the Lucid Motors website or at retail locations, including the recently opened Beverly Hills Studio and service centre.
Customer deliveries for the first Lucid Air models begins in spring of 2021.
