Entry level Lucid Air Pure to offer RWD option with 430 hp

Max McDee, 15 February 2023

Lucid Air Pure was unveiled by the end of last year and it was always meant as the entry trim for the luxury brand. As such the EV is priced from $92,900 and it comes with the 480 hp AWD drivetrain with EPA rated range of 410 miles. It’s hard to call it an entry level trim when it deals with 0 to 60 mph sprint in 3.8 seconds but in the world of Lucid electric cars it is at the bottom of the lineup.
