Unrivaled Performance

Under the hood, the Lucid Air Sapphire boasts a staggering 1,234 horsepower in Drag Strip mode, propelling it from 0 to 60 mph in just under 2 seconds and reaching a top speed of over 200 mph.

The interior is adorned with Alcantara and suede trim, adding a touch of luxury to the sporty cabin.

Spacious and Luxurious Interior

Despite its performance credentials, the Lucid Air Sapphire doesn't compromise on comfort or practicality. It offers ample storage space, with a power-opening front trunk and a spacious rear trunk. The rear seats provide best-in-class legroom, ensuring a comfortable ride for all passengers.

Marques Brownlee, a renowned tech reviewer, praised the Lucid Air Sapphire, stating, “If you made me daily drive any EV in the world right now & it couldn't be a Tesla, it would be this; It's just way too good at driving to not pick it. I don't see any downsides with this car. It's the best sedan in the world.”
