Lucid Air Sapphire


Recommended Posts

Lucid just unveiled a new trim of their super sport EV sedan.  The Sapphire.  This new Sapphire upstages its own Air Dream by adding adding another 100 HP from 1111 to about 1200 plus via adding another of their compact motor in the rear making it a tri-motor set-up.  Dual in the rear and single up front.

Look out Tesla Model S Plaid.   Lucid says 0-60 is less than 2 seconds.  100 MPH is reached in under 4 secs and the  1/4 mile is said to be sub 9 secs.  All metrics beating the Plaid buy a few tenths.   The Plaid to 60 is 2.1 secs, 100 MPH takes 4.3 seconds and the 1/4 mile is @ 9.4 

Any Air interior just shytes on any Teslas' interior but regarding the Sapphire, the Plaid is half the price too.  

But a new performance beast that sets the bar and speed records (maybe...as the Plaid is absolutely real and proven...) is about to be set loose...  

The part that I like most about the Sapphire is that there are plenty, but more or less subtle, differences between the lesser Airs and the Sapphire. Unlike the Model S and the Plaid.

Me too.   That blue is siiiiiick!

The whole exterior package, regardless if it looks like a 1990s product, is super dope.  (how's that for a 1990s expression complimenting the Air's looks?

I'd agree, the whole exterior package is pretty awesome. It looks phenomenal in that profile picture.

I also agree, it also has that aero back that Cadillac and Audi have done on their EVs. I like it, very different than other EVs today especially what Mercedes has done.

This has a nice style IMHO.
