The Lucid Air Grand Touring Is Better Than Ever

The Lucid Air Grand Touring is receiving a slew of crucial updates for 2024. The Air Grand Touring, which sits just below Lucid’s range-topping Sapphire trim, picks some parts from the brand’s most powerful sedan in addition to some serious range figures.

The two are related, as Lucid says it was able to retain the GT’s 516-mile EPA-estimated range by lifting the heat pump from the Sapphire, which will also better the sedan’s cold-weather performance. The Air will also get back on its feet better, with charging speeds improving a claimed 15%-30% due to improved pre-conditioning before charging.

Other mechanical improvements include updates to the GT’s electric motors, battery cells, and more that will allow for better performance during hard driving. The automaker isn’t too specific, saying only that the changes “reduce energy wasted as heat and enable the car to perform at its best.” Pricing has been updated as well, with the new Lucid Air Grand Touring starting at $111,475 including destination.
