Lucid company presented its new flagship electric sedan – meet the Lucid Air Sapphire, which brings with it a 3-motor version and an expected power of more than 1200 “horses”. Such an indicator already allows Lucid to position the Air Sapphire model not only as the most powerful electric sedan, but also as the most powerful sedan in the world in general!
Final specs haven’t been released yet, but 0-60 mph acceleration is expected. (0-97 km/h) in less than 2 seconds and passing the quarter (402 m) in about 9 seconds. All of this is made possible by a new 3-motor architecture: one electric motor in front and two in the back for separate right/left wheel drive.
Only the installation of more electric motors was necessary: the Lucid Air Sapphire electric car received an improved engine and battery cooling system, a reconfigured suspension, enhanced recuperation capabilities, etc. In addition, special wheels with carbon aerodynamic caps and Michelin sports tires of different sizes are used – 265/35R20 at the front and 295/30R21 at the rear. Also, the Lucid Air Sapphire electric car will receive powerful carbon-ceramic brakes as standard equipment.
Such a “difficult” option, of course, should stand out from the outside and in the interior. For example, the Sapphire Blue color was first developed for the Lucid Air Sapphire version. Also, this electric car “by default” will receive the Stealth Look package, which is offered for an additional fee for other model variants. Finally, the Lucid Air Sapphire modification is distinguished by noticeable changes in the interior: combined decoration with blue stitching, sports seats with massive lateral support, special settings on the displays – for example, measuring the time of passing a lap.
Impressive? Not less than the cost of this electric sedan: from $249,000. The Lucid Air Sapphire electric car will be released next year in a limited series for the United States and Canada. Also, hurry up to collect money, because such “masterpieces” are rare.
