New Lucid Air variant debuts in August, deliveries in 2023

Lucid Motors teased the August 19 debut of a "new addition to the Lucid Air lineup" The cryptic photo of blue track lights was accompanied by a press release highlighting Lucid's presence at Monterey Car Week and confirming 2023 deliveries of the new Air variant.

"Blue means go" is the teaser. This could indicate a performance-focused Lucid Air variant that rivals the Tesla Model S Plaid. The EV's tri-motor setup may explain the track references.

First deliveries of the new variant will begin in 2023, but the company must increase production to meet growing demand for the regular Air.

The Lucid Motors website announced a press conference on August 19 at The Quail for the global debut of a new vehicle variant. The company says high-ranking officials will show off "this stunning new Lucid Air addition."

The vehicle will also be at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance on August 21. This could mean it's a concept, but given the delivery date, it's probably close to production.

Ben Collins will drive the Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance in Laguna Seca at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion (Aug 17-18 and 20-21).

The Lucid Dream Ahead Tour Ride & Drive program (Aug 18-20) features a fleet of Air models at Spanish Bay and the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance (Aug 21).
