Lucid Motors releases pricing, performance specs for its upcoming EV lineup

Lucid Motors has revealed more details about its upcoming Lucid Air model range.

The base model, called the Lucid Air, starts at $77,400. It has a single-motor powertrain (an optional dual-motor, all-wheel drive configuration is also available) with 480 horsepower and a projected EPA range of 406 miles. All Lucid models feature a 900-volt electrical architecture and DC fast charging capability. Customers who reserve now will receive three years of complimentary charging from the Electrify America network.

The Lucid Air features various luxurious appointments, including PurLuxe animal-free interior trim, the 34-inch Lucid Glass Cockpit curved display, and what the company says is the largest frunk ever fitted to an electric sedan. The Lucid Air model is also available with DreamDrive, Lucid’s advanced driver-assistance system.

The Lucid Air Touring model, which starts at $95,000, has a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive drive configuration, with 620 horsepower and a 406-mile range. Options include a Glass Canopy Roof and a wide range of choices for interior materials and finishes.

Following the example of Tesla, Lucid is beginning with a luxury vehicle, and hopes to introduce more affordable models in the future.

“The Lucid Air is a vehicle that thrills me personally because it delivers a level of performance, efficiency, and luxury that is currently unseen in today’s EVs,” said Lucid CEO and CTO Peter Rawlinson. “What drives this company is creating the world’s best EV technology while making it progressively more attainable over time. We are setting the stage for broader adoption of the latest, game-changing EV technology.”

Reservations for the Lucid Air and Lucid Air Touring, as well as the Grand Touring ($139,000) and Dream Edition ($169,000) versions, can now be made at the Lucid Motors web site, or at the company’s recently opened Beverly Hills Studio and service center. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in early 2021.
