2024 Lucid Air Sapphire: InsideEVs First Drive Review | A Cut Above

From InsideEVs.

Join us as we get behind the wheel of the 2024 Lucid Air Sapphire.

Thanks to electrification, we are in a new era of automotive records. Every day, powerful and torquey EVs redefine what it means to be fast, offering such quick acceleration that it would break the rules of any NHRA-sanctioned event.

With a three-motor powertrain doling out up to 1,234 horsepower and 1,430 pound-feet, the Sapphire is the world’s most powerful production four-door sedan in history. It also vaults to 60 miles per hour in 1.89 seconds, a tenth quicker than the Tesla Model S Plaid, and will reach a manufacturer-claimed top speed of 205 mph.
