Lucid Motors, the US-based electric car manufacturer, has unveiled the pricing details for two new variants of its luxury sedan, the Lucid Air, for several European countries including Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Norway. The newly introduced models are the Air Pure AWD and the Air Touring, both equipped with a smaller 92 kWh battery pack that allows for an impressive range of up to 725 kilometers according to the WLTP standard.
Lucid plans to begin deliveries of the Air Touring in the third quarter of 2023, followed by the Air Pure AWD in the fourth quarter of the same year in the aforementioned European countries. Interested customers can already place their orders, with prices set at €109,000 for the Air Pure AWD and €129,000 for the Air Touring in Germany. In the Netherlands, the prices are €115,000 and €134,000 respectively, while in Switzerland, they are 125,000 CFH (€128,628) and 145,000 CFH (€149,209). In Norway, the Air Pure AWD and the Air Touring will carry price tags of 1,140,000 kr (€96,357) and 1,300,000 kr (€109,862) respectively. The Air Pure AWD boasts an output of 353 kW, while the Touring model offers 456 kW of power.
In late 2022, Lucid Motors introduced the Air to the European market by delivering the first units of the “Dream Edition.” This initial release included two variants: the Dream Edition Performance, delivering a maximum power of 828 kW and a WLTP range of 799 kilometers, and the Dream Edition Range, with slightly less power at 696 kW but an extended range of 883 kilometers. Both versions are equipped with the larger 113 kWh battery. The “Grand Touring” model, which has also been introduced in Europe, shares the same battery configuration.
While the two newly priced variants offer a range of up to 725 kilometers, they differ from the previously released models not only in terms of their electric drivetrain but also in terms of equipment and features. For instance, the optional “DreamDrive Pro” driver assistance system is available, and the Air Pure variant comes with an aluminum roof instead of the previously standard panoramic glass roof. The Air Touring, on the other hand, will come with a standard solid aluminum roof, with the option to choose a Glass Canopy. The interior materials and the exterior visual package, known as the “Stealth Appearance,” with dark accents, also vary between the different versions.
Looking ahead, Lucid Motors has plans to introduce a rear-wheel-drive variant of the Air Pure in 2024, featuring a single-engine setup. However, specific details regarding pricing and delivery dates for this new base model will be announced at a later time.
With these new offerings, Lucid Motors aims to provide customers in Europe with a wider range of options when it comes to the Lucid Air, catering to different preferences and budgets while maintaining impressive range capabilities and luxurious features.
