Lucid Air Grand Touring has been reduced in price with fewer standard features

Lucid has made it easier to get behind the wheel of their 819-horsepower, 516-mile Air Grand Touring sedan.

The EV startup announced a new starting price of $138,000 this week, compared to $154,000 previously.

To match the lower price, Lucid removed and exposed some standard features, giving buyers more flexibility in configuring the car. This flexibility can already be found in the lower Air Pure and Air Touring classes, which start at $87,400 and $107,400 respectively.

Previous standard features of the Air Grand Touring, available now, include the DreamDrive Pro driver assistance package ($10,000), Surreal Sound Pro audio system ($4,000) and 21-inch Aero Blade wheels ( $2,000). Adding all of these features will return you to the previous starting price of $154,000.

Buyers who opt for the standard DreamDrive driver assistance package and/or the standard Surreal Sound audio system can try the respective Pro versions free for 90 days, Lucid said.

By making these previously standard features optional and thereby lowering the starting price, Lucid has essentially reversed much of the Air Grand Touring’s price increase announced in May when the starting price went from $139,000 to $154,000. While the starting price is now $138,000, it should be noted that the original $139,000 starting price included the DreamDrive Pro package as a standard feature.
