It’s not quite the $60,000 model that was originally on the cards a few years ago, but a regular Lucid Air will be available for $77,400, or $69,900 after the IRS tax credit. For your money, you get a single-motor variant that packs 480hp (359kW) with an estimated EPA range of 406 miles (653km) on a single charge. The biggest catch: you’ll have to wait until 2022 before taking delivery.
“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 Peter Rawlinson, CEO and CTO, Lucid Motors. “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, we are setting the stage for broader adoption of the latest, game-changing EV technology,” he said in a press release.
