Lucid Air shows off the sporty side with stealth look option

Lucid Motors will introduce a new Stealth Look package for its Air sedan, which will modify 35 components for a sportier, articulated exterior than the elegant, luxurious design of other models.

Derek Jenkins said, “From its inception, the Lucid Air was designed to have two distinct looks that reflect the duality of its personality: the standard Platinum look, which highlights its luxurious nature; and the now Stealth look. , which is simultaneously assertive, yet still under the radar.” , Lucid Group Senior Vice President of Design and Brands.

The company said the Stealth Look Air will make its public debut on August 17 during Monterey Car Week.

The exterior package costs $6,000 and can be configured online in three trims of the Air: the top Grand Touring Performance trim, the high-level Grand Touring and the mid-level Touring. The base Air Pure trim will not get an option immediately.

Lucid said the black-on-black version of the Air with Stealth Look is the most aggressive of the new exterior package, but can also be opted for in white, silver, gray and red.
