We knew Lucid Motors’ Air was going to come in a super-exclusive, super-expensive configuration, but now the electric car company has spilled the details on its cheapest model.

A luxury sedan, it’ll go head-to-head not only with EV heavyweight Tesla, but BMW and Mercedes-Benz, too.

Indeed, it’s the Germans that Lucid Motors is specifically targeting with today’s pricing announcement.

According to the pitch, the Air will deliver more comfort, a better interface, and greater performance than “comparably priced” cars from either BMW or Mercedes.

Of course, different states have their own incentives which could take it lower still: California, for instance – where Lucid is based – offers a $2,500 incentive on select cars.

The automaker says that it has a 240 mile range on a single charge, and “all hardware necessary” for autonomous driving.
