The 2021 Lucid Air


We saw the Lucid Air in two colors, a spectacular dark Zenith Red and Stellar White.  Both models had Lucid Motors’ trademark glass canopy roof and polished satin platinum finish aluminum trim.  This was my first time with the Air in person and it was nothing short of a visual stunner.

Inside, Nappa fine-grain leather is the rule and colors vary based on the variant chosen. Thoughtful touches abound: there are two slide-in slots for wireless Qi charging up front, for example, and the central information display (a fairly large tablet-size affair), disappears to reveal more storage.

The Dream Edition will be available in a choice of Eureka Gold metallic, Stellar White, and Infinite Black. All come with the glass canopy roof and satin titanium finish aluminum trim standard.  The Santa Monica interior with Nappa full-grain leather in Graphite and Ceramic with silvered eucalyptus trim and Alcantara inserts.

Open the door and the first thing one wonders is, “is this really an EV?”  It’s true that most electric vehicles are known for Spartan interiors whereas the Lucid interior is rather posh and spacious.  I don’t doubt Lucid’s claims that this is a five-passenger sedan but because of the coronavirus, we didn’t attempt the equivalent of college students piling into a VW Beetle.  Nonetheless, the front was reminiscent of a good business-class seat while the back accommodated two adults in supreme comfort.

Inside the cabin, the driver will face a floating 34” curved glass cockpit as well as a retractable central display, dubbed the Pilot Panel.

Space inside the passenger cabin is generous.  The key to the Air’s design is something the company refers to as the Lucid Space Concept, which takes advantage of the miniaturization of the vehicle’s electric drivetrain in order to optimize cabin interior space.
