Lucid Introduces More Affordable Air Pure RWD for 2024

Lucid releases its 2024 Air Pure RWD model, the brand’s most budget-friendly offering, with impressive features and a competitive range, cheaper than Tesla’s base Model S.


  • The Lucid Air Pure RWD is priced at $101,800 with a range of 659 kms in Canada.

  • It boasts a single-motor system producing 430 horsepower and an acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds.

  • The model provides enhanced rear passenger comfort due to a more compact battery design.



Lucid Motors has unveiled its latest electric vehicle offering: the 2024 Lucid Air Pure RWD. This new model comes on the heels of the company’s recent announcement of their high-end Air Sapphire. Priced at $101,800, the Air Pure RWD is Lucid’s answer to a more affordable EV without compromising on essential features and performance.

Distinguishing itself as the singular single-motor variant in the Air series, the Pure RWD is powered by a rear-mounted electric motor, which churns out a commendable 430 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. These specifications translate to a rapid acceleration, allowing the car to dart from a standstill to 100 km/h in a mere 4.5 seconds, topping off at a speed of 200 km/h.

An essential component of any EV is its range, and the Air Pure RWD does not disappoint. In Canada, the model promises a range of 659 kms, making it a strong contender in the current EV market. This impressive range can be attributed to its 88-kilowatt-hour Long Range Battery Pack.

However, range isn’t its only highlight. Lucid has strategically used its most compact battery yet in this model. The result is a lowered floor in the rear passenger section, ensuring more legroom and comfort for occupants compared to some other Lucid Air variants.
