More Lucid Air Models Now Available; Air Sapphire Goes 0-60 in 1.89 Says Company
Lucid is set to begin delivering its Touring and Pure models for the luxury electric Air sedan, as reported in a press release on Tuesday.
The Lucid Air Touring features a more affordable, mid-range option than the Air Grand Touring trim, the latter of which began deliveries in April.
The Air Touring starts at $107,400 and features a dual-motor and all-wheel-drive with 620hp and a 3.2-second 0-60mph acceleration.
Additionally, customers can now order the Air Pure, an entry-level model starting at $87,400, which has just a single motor with rear-wheel-drive, featuring up to 480hp. Upgrade options for the Air Pure also include a dual-motor AWD version.
By comparison, the Grand Touring starts at $154,000 though it includes up to 1,050 hp.
“Air Touring matches the landmark 4.6 miles per kWh efficiency of the Grand Touring – albeit at a more affordable price point – an important incremental step to making ultra-efficient EVs more attainable,” CEO Peter Rawlinson said.
Both the Air Pure and Air Touring have been rated with up to 406 miles of range, while the previously available Grand Touring trim offers up to 516 miles of range.
Additionally, Lucid announced that the Air Sapphire would begin production in the first half of 2023. Lucid says Air Sapphire’s latest performance estimates are 0-60mph in 1.89s and a top speed of 205 miles per hour.
The news comes ahead of a Lucid launch event slated for Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time, at which some predict the automaker’s highly-anticipated Gravity SUV could be launched.
