For its second model 12 months Lucid is streamlining its Air sedan lineup, discontinuing a few of the more area of interest trims, adding newly optional features and lowering some prices.
The bottom rear-wheel-drive Air Pure continues on with its $78,900 price tag (including $1,500 destination), however the dual-motor all-wheel-drive Pure is not any longer available. The Pure’s powertrain is unchanged, but its range has barely increased from 410 to 419 miles. Recent for the Pure is a Comfort & Convenience package that adds four-zone automatic climate control, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, powered rear-window sunshades and soft-close doors. But the perfect upgrade is the supply of 20-way adjustable front seats which have ventilation and massage functions.
Also unchanged when it comes to powertrain is the dual-motor Air Touring, which now starts at $87,400, a decrease of $9,100 from its already discounted price. Much of that price drop is due to the removal of previously standard features which might be now a part of the Comfort & Convenience pack, which comes with the whole lot it adds to the Pure plus a powered frunk and heated windshield wipers. 20-inch wheels and leather seats are also optional as an alternative of being standard. Those upgraded seats can be found on the Touring, as well. The 2024 Touring has a rather lower range of 411 miles, versus 425 miles previously; Lucid says the EPA’s range adjustments are attributable to updated testing protocols.
Lucid has dropped the Air’s Grand Touring Performance trim, which had 1,050 horsepower and other sporting upgrades. The remaining Air Grand Touring sticks with the identical 819 HP as before, but Lucid says it receives powertrain updates inspired by the discontinued Performance version. The glass roof is now an option as an alternative of normal fit, Pricing and range for the Air Grand Touring will probably be announced in a pair months.
Across the board the Air is now offered with a wider range of interior color schemes and material selections, including Nappa leather on the Pure trim, and the Pure’s Fathom Blue paint could be had on the Touring and Grand Touring. The Stealth Appearance package is out there on the Touring along with the Grand Touring, too.
The updated Air Pure and Air Touring can be found to order now, while buyers of the Grand Touring could have to attend until early 2024. The absurdly quick Air Sapphire, which just went on sale a couple of months ago, stays at the highest of the heap with no changes.
