Revealed on December 14, 2016, Air, the first model of the Californian manufacturer Lucid Motors, today announced its prices. The electric sedan, announced as the rival of the Tesla Model S, debuted at “only” $ 60,000 in the US market (federal tax credits of $ 7,500 not deducted), or about $ 56,000. That’s $ 8,000 less than a Model S 60 (about $ 7,500).
A Basic Air will cost $ 52,500 … US, after the US $ 7,500 ($ 60,000) discount. A quick calculation would give an amount of about $ 69,000 Canadian to which you can subtract $ 8,000 in subsidies … if the car is sold here. A version Launch Edition (starting edition) of the Air will trade to more than $ 100,000 US.
Less expensive than the Model S, the Lucid Air will be more powerful in its basic version with a 400 horsepower electric motor and a range of 383 kilometers. The entry-level Model S offers 315 horsepower and 338 kilometers of autonomy.
Only the starting price of the Lucid Air was announced today. Lucid, who unveiled last December, said other versions would also be available, including a top-of-the-range model with 1000 horsepower and 640 kilometers of range. However, a price of more than US $ 100,000 was expected for this model, according to the manufacturer.
