With today's unveiling of the production-ready 2021 Lucid Air electric sedan, reservations are open for the latest aspiring Tesla-terminator. Prospective owners will be able to secure their place in line with a $1,000 refundable deposit for the Lucid Air Touring and Grand Touring or a $7,500 refundable deposit for the limited-production Dream Edition.

The Air Dream Edition boasts the most potent version of the dual-motor powertrain with 1,080 horsepower on tap. It's also the most expensive version at $169,000 before the $7,500 federal EV tax credit kicks in. Available in White, Black or a unique Eureka Gold finish exclusive to this limited run, the Dream Edition rolls on 21-inch "AeroDream" wheels that'll cost you a few miles of range, but look good doing it. Inside, you'll find a Santa Monica-themed cabin that upgrades over the standard Air with full Napa grain, Bridge of Weir leather and silvered Eucalyptus wood trim.

The bigger wheels and more powerful tune cost the Dream Edition a few miles of range, but its estimated 465 miles between charges should still be more than enough.
