Luxury EV automaker Lucid opens its first Canadian location
Its Lucid Air sedan will start at $105,000, with deliveries expected later this year
Luxury electric vehicle manufacturer Lucid has announced its first Canadian retail outlet and pricing, which will start at $105,000. Buyers can reserve any Lucid Air model for a deposit of $400.
The Lucid Studio will open on Saturday, October 16, 2021 at CF Pacific Centre in Vancouver, B.C. It’s the company’s tenth store and its first outside of the U.S. The automaker said it will open another store in Toronto in 2022, and other Canadian locations will follow.
The Lucid Air sedan comes in four levels, with varying power and range. The Pure, at $105,000, has 480 horsepower and a projected range of 653 kilometres. The Touring, at $129,000, offers 620 hp.
“Announcing Canadian pricing and our first retail location in the country in tandem is critical in bringing the Lucid brand to Canada,” said Zak Edson, senior director of sales and service. “This opening is the first of many announcements for locations outside of the U.S. market as we continue our rapid global expansion.”
Customers can visit the studio in person or online, where they can use a virtual reality experience to personalize the car’s options and finishes, and interact with a company representative.
