Electric-vehicle maker Lucid is debuting a new edition of its popular and powerful Air luxury sedan.
The Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance, announced Tuesday, will ship with 1,050 horsepower and a starting price tag of $179,000. The company’s Air sedan has impressed critics in many ways since its launch last fall, in part for the astounding performance of the 1,111-horsepower Dream Edition.
But that model wasn’t easy to get. Lucid capped production of the Dream Edition to just 520 vehicles, all of which were spoken for months before Lucid began shipping the first Airs from its Arizona factory in October.
Lucid said Tuesday the Grand Touring Performance — with specifications that very nearly match the Dream Edition and a starting price just $10,000 higher — won’t be as limited in production.
While the Air has made a big impression at the high end of the luxury EV market, Lucid is still in the early stages of production.
The company said in late February that it had built about 400 vehicles since starting production in September and that it had about 25,000 reservations for the Air.
