The $249,000 EV is expected to be the world’s first fully electric luxury super-sports sedan.
On Sept. 29, Lucid Motors shared on X a snapshot of the first production Lucid Air Sapphire super sedan going through the ADAS system calibration in its AMP-1 manufacturing facility in Casa Grande, AZ. The EV manufacturer added customer deliveries will begin soon.
Lucid Motors teased the Air Sapphire’s start of production in Arizona in the summer. In July, the company shared a picture via X of a Lucid Air Sapphire release candidate on the line at Casa Grande. In August, Lucid released the official specs of the halo car.
The $249,000 Lucid Air Sapphire is expected to be the world’s first fully electric luxury super-sports sedan. Lucid noted the EV can achieve 0-60 mph in 1.89 seconds, making it faster than the Tesla Model S Plaid.
“Sapphire represents the pinnacle of electric performance, finally achieving the performance that I’ve so long searched for,” said CEO Peter Rawlinson. “After painstaking development work, I am able to confirm Lucid Air Sapphire has achieved a satisfactory performance, and I trust the most discerning drivers will agree."
The Lucid Air Sapphire is a limited-production model to be available in the U.S. and Canada. The Sapphire will start at $249,999 in the U.S. and $325,000 in Canada.
