Lucid Air Sapphire promises the same amount of luxury as the standard Lucid Air but with added performance. It is a direct rival to the Tesla Model S Plaid.

Lucid Group has showcased the Lucid Air Sapphire after launching the Lucid Air, where Sapphire is their new high-performance brand. According to the manufacturer, the Air Sapphire is the world’s first fully electric luxury super-sports sedan. Lucid appears to be planning more high-performance products under the Sapphire brand. Several other manufacturers have performance brands, such as BMW M, Mercedes-Benz AMG, and Audi RS.

The Air Sapphire will have three electric motors. Two of them will be located on the rear axle, while the front axle will be powered by a single motor. Lucid is the sole developer and manufacturer of the motors. The Air Sapphire has a total power output of around 1,200 hp, making it the most powerful sedan in the world. In comparison, the standard Lucid Air generates 1,050 hp.

Despite producing 150 horsepower more, there have been no compromises in terms of rear legroom, trunk and frunk space, or driving efficiency. The battery pack now has a higher power rating and more precise thermal logic. The rear electric motors now have new heat exchanger technology, and the coolant flow has been increased.

Lucid claims that the Air Sapphire can hit 100 kmph in less than 2 seconds, 160 kmph in less than 4 seconds and will do a standing quarter mile in under 9 seconds. Lucid says that these figures are achievable without the extra cost of equipment upgrades or pre-conditioning routines. These figures are quite close to the Tesla Model S Plaid which is now a direct rival to the Air Sapphire.
