I finally understand why I love the Lucid Air Pure so much (although, admittedly, I’ve only worshipped one from afar). And here’s why I love this car: it’s more than a car. It’s…well, a work of art. A futuristic design from the minds of a group of California carmakers. An EV so advanced and so powerful, it’s hard to believe that the pricetag doesn’t hit six figures. The Air Pure is the base model of the fleet at $69K after Federal Tax Credit, with the Lucid Air Grand Touring model that starts at $139,000, and the high-end model, the Lucid Air Dream Edition, yours for a cool $169,000. But for more than double the price, you get a 471-mile range and a mindbending 1,111 horsepower. Wow.
To be sure, it’s a work of world-class engineering and design…but still, a work of art.
The Lucid Airs are making history
It’s a remarkable start for a startup automaker. The 2022 Lucid Air is MotorTrend’s Car of the Year. It’s the first time a carmaker has won that award with their first model. More history may be made soon — Lucid began shipping the Air sedan last month.
No doubt, the Lucid Air is a car that will reimagine the traditional luxury sedan with new benchmarks in technology, performance, spaciousness, and design. Lucid’s advanced miniaturized drivetrain provides the interior space of a full-size luxury vehicle while maintaining the exterior footprint of a mid-size performance sedan. The result is unmatched aerodynamic efficiency and increased agility and maneuverability, all while surrounding occupants in a carefully crafted atmosphere with meticulous attention to detail.
We are in awe of the 34” Lucid Glass Cockpit curved, floating display, and the largest frunk ever fitted to an electric sedan. Incidentally, the Lucid Air 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 the most comprehensive sensor suite on the market with a cutting-edge driver monitoring system.
Lucid in Miami
Lucid Motors will open its newest retail location, the Lucid Studio in Miami at Brickell City Centre, will take place next month. An additional location will open at the West Palm Beach Studio at Rosemary Square, in January of 2021.
So yeah. The next $69,000 I run across, I’m running over and buying a Lucid Air.
