Electric vehicle startup Lucid Motors took the opportunity to reveal more details of its Air sedan at last week’s Monterey Car Week, as well as showcasing the Launch Edition model that will make up the first 255 units.

First off, the company has confirmed the headline figures that were bandied about during the initial reveal late last year – the Air will be capable of a range of 640 km from launch, a zero-to-100 km/h acceleration time of under 2.5 seconds and a top speed of at least 250 km/h.

That’s with the range-topping model, which will get twin electric motors providing all-wheel drive and up to 1,000 hp. There’s also a base model that will get a single 400 hp motor, rear-wheel drive and a smaller battery, which has a range of 385 km. A mid-range battery option will get a range of 505 km.

Standard kit includes LED headlights, 19-inch alloy wheels, a five-seater cabin, 12-way power-adjustable front seats, four screens (including three touchscreens), 10 speakers and 10 airbags. Buyers will also get a front and rear boot that will provide combined luggage space of over 900 litres, plus over-the-air updates.

On top of that are options such as 21-inch wheels, a panoramic glass roof and front seats with 22-way power adjustment, heating, ventilation, massage and dynamic bolster functions. Also on the list are rear reclining executive seats, expanded leather trim, a 29-speaker sound system and a fully-active suspension, which Lucid Motors claims offers a “world-class ride.”

The Launch Edition you see here is fully kitted-out, and will come with unique colours such as this dark grey hue. It won’t be cheap at over US$100,000 (RM428,000), but the range will start at US$60,000 (RM256,800) for the base model, before federal and local tax credits.

No matter which variant you choose, the Air will come with “all hardware necessary for autonomous driving,” including camera, radar and lidar sensors all around. These will initially provide Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) features at launch, transitioning to full autonomous driving via software updates. Deliveries of the Air will begin in 2019, a year later than when the car was initially slated to enter production.
