The Lucid Air Stealth is the dark side of the electric lift back. The package comes for extra money and includes several upgrades that make the car look… dark.
Customers can select the Air Pure Stealth with the Aluminum Roof or Glass Canopy from the Appearance menu. The other option, which is included in the standard price, is the Platinum with the Aluminum Roof.

The Stealth, though, is available for $1,750 more, on top of the price of the entry-level Air Pure, which Is $69,900. This means that customers can drive home the car featuring several darkened elements on the exterior for a total of $71,650.

The Pure Stealth comes to replace all the chrome elements with a black finish, covering the base of the C-pillars, the side mirror cases, and the horizontal strip at the front end, which is located above the headlights and supports the "Lucid" lettering. The upgrade is available regardless of the exterior color ordered by the future owner.

Six of them are available in the lineup, starting with the Stellar White metallic and the Infinite Black Metallic, which are free of charge, and ending with the Cosmos Silver, Quantum Grey, Zenith Red, and Fathom Blue, which cost $800.

The Stealth package also brings 20-inch Aero Lite Stealth wheels with a black mate finish instead of the 19-inch Aero Range units, wearing the Michelin Pilot Sport tires. The larger wheels pull the EPA-estimated range down from the standard 419 miles (674 kilometers) to 394 miles (634 kilometers), provided by the 88-kWh battery pack.

A rear-mounted electric motor sets the car in motion, sending 430 horsepower (436 metric horsepower) to the rear wheels. The Lucid Air Pure can go from 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 kph) in 4.5 seconds.

The price of the car equipped with the Stealth package includes the Lucid Care program, available for the first two years or for 24,000 miles (38,625 kilometers).

The Stealth Appearance is available for all of the trims in the Air lineup: Air Pure, Air Touring, Air Grand Touring, and Air Sapphire, and we can expect it to drop in the Gravity range later on. However, the range-topping Sapphire is the only one that gets it for free.

A fully equipped Air Sapphire costs $249,000, which is more than three times the price of the entry-level version and twice the price of the Tesla Model S Plaid, with the latter being its primary opponent on the market.

The Sapphire comes with 1,234 horsepower and can flash from 0 to 60 mph in 1.89 seconds on its way to a top speed of 205 mph (330 kph). Meanwhile, the Model S Plaid benefits from the presence of 1,020 horsepower (1,033 metric horsepower) and does the 0 to 60 mph run at 1.99. Top speed is electronically limited to 200 mph (322 kph).
