Lucid Motors today revealed that after a rigorous evaluation process, Car and Driver has selected the Lucid Air Pure to join its esteemed 10Best List for 2024, which recognizes the top 10 vehicles on the road today that have impressed editors with their respective combinations of value, performance, innovation, and overall driving experience.
The Lucid Air Pure was named to the 10Best List in its very first year of eligibility. Lucid’s inclusion in the Car and Driver 10Best List marks the third major award for the Air in as many years, with this innovative all-electric luxury sedan having won MotorTrend Car of the Year in 2022 and then being named World Luxury Car of the Year in 2023. This is in addition to countless “bests” and accolades for the game-changing Lucid Air lineup since launching almost three years ago.
To compete for the 2024 10Best list, vehicles must be available with an attainable starting price. After two weeks of driving more than 80 of the best new cars, trucks, and SUVs for 2024 that meet those criteria, Car and Driver editors evaluate each 10Best contender versus its peers on a 100-point scale. To make the final 10Best list, the vehicle must not only outperform its competition, but also provide exceptional value and an enjoyable driving experience.
“It is incredibly rewarding to see the Lucid Air Pure honored on the Car and Driver 10Best List,” said Andrea Soriani, Vice President of Marketing at Lucid. “As our most accessible Air model, this win underscores Lucid’s commitment to designing and engineering cars that provide unparalleled driving pleasure.”
The Lucid Air Pure RWD recently completed the rollout of the Air model lineup, offering exceptional driving range of up to an EPA-estimated 419 miles,** elegant design, and outstanding driver engagement, all at a starting price of $77,400.* Lucid’s game-changing proprietary EV technology means the Air Pure comes with the freedom to drive longer distances with confidence, and to spend less time charging, adding up to 150 miles in less than 12 minutes with DC fast charging.***
“The closer you look, the more you realize that every square millimeter of this car has been considered and optimized. The density of thought is off the charts” said Tony Quiroga, Editor-in-Chief of Car and Driver. “The Lucid Air Pure is a base model whose driving range, performance, space, and price put it in a sweet spot, one that makes you feel like you’re holding a golden ticket instead of a coupon,” said Austin Irwin, Technical Editor of Car and Driver.
Full coverage of the Car and Driver 10Best list can be found in the January issue, available everywhere by December 26, and online at CarandDriver.com here.
Concurrently, the newly-configured Lucid Air Touring is now available for advance ordering, with the base model being $85,900, featuring a new level of customer choice and flexibility for customers to create their own luxury experience.

The Lucid Air Pure RWD and the newly-configured Lucid Air Touring are available for ordering now from the Lucid Motors website and the Design Yours configurator, or from Lucid’s growing network of North American sales studios.
