At the official presentation of the Lucid Air a few weeks ago, it seemed as if Lucid Motors would initially only offer an expensive version of its electric sedan want to get started. The Lucid Air is said to cost up to $ 169,000. Now the Tesla challenger has announced an affordable version of the Air . For the basic Air model, Lucid Motors is charging $ 69,900 before taxes in the US - and Tesla is already being forced to act.

Lucid Air can also be pre-ordered in Germany

According to the manufacturer, the cheapest vehicle in the Air fleet, simply called Lucid Air, is well equipped. The electric sedan should have a range of 653 kilometers (according to EPA standards) and 480 horsepower. In the USA, interested parties can now pre-order the vehicle - Lucid charges a fee of $ 300 for this. In Germany, you have to pay 300 euros to reserve the basic model. However, as in the other markets outside the US, Lucid has not yet specified a price.

  Electric Vehicles are Too Damn Expensive The average Josephine on the street can’t afford to step into most electric vehicles on sale in the U.S. today, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has admitted. “Our cars are not affordable enough,” Musk said during his second-quarter earnings call in July. “We need to fix that.” Electric cars and crossovers remain far too expensive to be daily commuters for the middle- and working-classes, who in congested urban areas, at least, may be turning to e-bikes instead, an electric segment in which U.S. sales spiked 92-percent in April and 137-percent in May, according to Bicycle Retailer and Industry News.

For Tesla boss Elon Musk, the announcement of the startup is apparently a serious threat. On Twitter , Musk declared, without explicitly naming Lucid Motors, that "the gauntlet" had been thrown away - the prophecy would come true. In addition, the price of the Model S has been reduced to $ 69,420. The Model S price had only been lowered by $ 3,000 a few hours earlier .

The gauntlet has been thrown down!

The prophecy will be fulfilled.
