Lucid Air Showcased At EVIS 2024: GCC-Spec Production To Begin Soon

At the 2024 Electric Vehicle Innovation Summit (EVIS) held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), American luxury EV manufacturer, Lucid Motors, presented more than just a reiteration of their Air sedan. The company formally unveiled the Grand Touring variant, the penultimate iteration within the Air lineup. 

Earlier in 2024, Lucid launched the Air in Saudi Arabia and announced plans for local assembly. These sedans will be built to meet the specifications of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), ensuring compliance across the Middle East.

In a conversation with DubiCars at EVIS 2024, Lucid mentioned the upcoming opening of its new showroom at City Walk in Dubai. This suggests an imminent launch of the Lucid Air in the UAE market.

Lucid Air Exterior Design

The Lucid Air takes inspiration from aircraft design, evident in its clean lines and subtle creases. This focus on aerodynamics creates a slippery profile. The headlights connect with sleek DRLs that stretch across the front, visually widening the stance of the sedan. This design element is mirrored at the rear with the taillights, creating a cohesive look.

Other exterior features include:

  • 20-inch (Front) & 21-inch alloy wheels
  • Pop-out door handles
  • Frameless doors
  • Dual-tone exterior colour
  • Boot spoiler
  • Front and rear splitter

The Lucid Air has a spacious cabin that can comfortably seat five adults. Interiors are decked in high-quality materials like leather and wood. The massive glass roof option fills the cabin with natural light and enhances the feeling of airiness.
