Overview

What's New

Lucid has expanded the Lucid Air lineup for 2023. There’s a new Sapphire high-performance model that has a tri-motor design with more than 1,200 horsepower. With the added performance, the Sapphire will be able to get to 60 mph in less than two seconds and will be able to complete the quarter mile in less than nine seconds.

Elsewhere in the lineup, Lucid has added a new Stealth Look appearance package that brings dark exterior trim pieces and black 21-inch wheels.

Choosing Your Lucid Air

The Lucid Air is available in five trims for 2023: Pure, Touring, Grand Touring, Grand Touring Performance, and Sapphire. Pricing for the Pure starts at $89,050, while the Grand Touring Performance costs $180,650. The range-topping Sapphire doesn’t have an official price yet, but the sedan is expected to cost somewhere in the $250,000 range.

Engine Choices

Lucid offers the Air with three different powertrain configurations. The base Pure trim comes with a single electric motor on the rear wheels that produces 480 horsepower and an 88-kWh battery pack. The Pure trim has an estimated range of 410 miles.

The Touring, Grand Touring, and Grand Touring Performance come with a dual-motor configuration. In the Touring, the electric motors produce 620 hp, the Grand Touring has 800 hp, and the Grand Touring Performance is rated at 1,050 hp.

The Touring has the same 88-kWh battery pack as the pure and an estimated range of 425 miles. Stepping up to the Grand Touring and Grand Touring Performance brings a larger 112-kWh battery pack that increases range to 516 miles and 446 miles, respectively.

The new-for-2023 Sapphire raises the performance bar with a tri-motor layout – two motors at the back and one electric motor at the front. Output is rated at 1,200 hp while range is estimated to be in the 400-mile ballpark.

Every Air features fast-charging capability that lets the sedan get up to 300 miles of range in just 21 minutes when plugged into a DC fast charger.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

All Air models offer seating for up to five people. While the Air isn’t a hatchback like the Mercedes-Benz EQS or the Tesla Model S, it has a large trunk that offers up to 32 cubic feet of cargo space.

Safety Features

Lucid offers its DreamDrive suite of advanced safety features on every Air model. The suite includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, a driver attention monitor, adaptive cruise control, automatic park assist, parking sensors, lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and a blind spot camera.

The Air is available with Lucid’s Level 3 semi-autonomous driving system that will become available through an over-the-air update. The system is called the DreamDrive Pro and will also add Highway Assist and a surround-view parking camera. DreamDrive Pro currently costs $10,000 on the Pure, Touring, and Grand Touring trims.

Connectivity

Every Air sedan comes with four screens that span a total of 34 inches. Three screens are positioned in front of the driver. The central one is the digital instrument cluster, while the screen on the left contains information on vehicle controls and the one on the right is used for navigation and media.

An additional touchscreen is located on the bottom of the center console and is used for functions like drive modes and charging. The lower display can fold away into the dashboard.

Standard features on the Air include a wireless charging pad, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, navigation, and Amazon Alexa.

2023 Lucid Air Pure – MSRP From $89,050

While the Pure trim is the most affordable Air available, it still comes well-equipped with dual-zone automatic climate control, synthetic leather upholstery, automatic climate control, adaptive suspension, LED exterior lighting, heated exterior mirrors, and remote keyless entry.

The Air Pure is available with all-wheel drive and a second electric motor for $5,500. A Surreal Sound Pro audio system is available for $4,000.

2023 Lucid Air Touring – From $113,550

Stepping up to the Touring adds the additional motor and a large jump in performance, but also brings a panoramic glass roof, 20-inch wheels, and two-tone leather upholstery.

The Stealth package costs $6,000 and brings dark exterior touches, while a glass canopy roof is priced at $4,500. The Surreal Sound Pro system is also available.

2023 Lucid Air Grand Touring – MSRP From $155,650

The available Grand Touring brings the larger battery pack, 21-inch wheels, the full glass canopy roof, and DreamDrive Pro as standard.

The Surreal Sound Pro system is the only available package on the Grand Touring.

2023 Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance – MSRP From $180,650

The Grand Touring Performance has all of the same features as the Grand Touring trim but has a lot more performance.

2023 Lucid Air Sapphire – MSRP From $250,000 (estimated)

Information on the Sapphire is scarce at the moment, but the trim will bring added performance thanks to a third electric motor and carbon-ceramic brakes. Other standard features include the Stealth package, sport seats, and an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel.

CarsDirect Tip

While there’s a large difference in performance between all of the 2023 Lucid Air’s models, we think the Touring trim is the best option. It brings plenty of performance for most people while featuring a few more upscale features. Above that, it sounds like Air models are more for bragging rights than usability.
