Even at that entry price, buyers net 430 horsepower and 410 miles of range.

Lucid Motors on Thursday announced a further reduction in the price of its Air sedan. The all-electric four-door now starts from $69,900 in Air Pure form in America, plus a non-negotiable destination charge of $1,500. That's a big $7,500 reduction; coincidentally, the amount of government incentive the Air doesn't qualify for. Even this rear-drive, single-motor “entry” model boasts impressive stats: 430 horsepower, 410 miles of range, and a 0–60 miles-per-hour time of 4.5 seconds. There are precious few luxury sedans capable of those numbers for that sticker price.

Stepping up to the all-wheel drive Air Touring is an $8,000 upgrade. This sees power up to 620 hp, the dash to 60 mph down to 3.4 seconds, and a range a single mile further than the Pure. Meanwhile the Grand Touring remains a six-figure proposition at $111,400, including destination. This model tops out at 819 hp, while a larger battery pack enables it to travel over 500 miles per charge.

It’s worth pointing out that while the Air posts big numbers, it does so without an (unusually) large battery pack. Instead of cramming the car full of batteries to hit a target—we’ll call that the Hummer method—Lucid engineers have eked out impressive efficiency from the company’s propulsion system. We’ve witnessed it first-hand in our numerous drives with the vehicle, and hold out hope the case remains the same or similar in the upcoming Gravity SUV.

In Canada, the Lucid Air Pure stickers for $96,500 CAD including destination, sliding under the luxury tax threshold.

In addition to the rejigged pricing, Lucid USA is also sweetening the Air deal by offering new customers $1,000 in cash towards a home-charging accessory of their choice. Along with that, all Lucid Airs now include free scheduled maintenance for the first two years or 24,000 miles.
