Highlights

  • The Model S is now available for just $69,420 in the US
  • It has stiff competition from the brand new Lucid Air
  • The Model S also doesn't get the tax benefit the Lucid Air gets

Tesla's Model S has been the undisputed king of the electric car, but in the recent past, its supremacy has been challenged by the Lucid Air which was launched in September. After announcing a series of discounts, Elon Musk tweeted the latest price revision of $69,420. "The gauntlet has been thrown down! The prophecy will be fulfilled," Musk wrote in a tweet announcing the price change," tweeted the billionaire and founder of Tesla. 

The Model S is one of Tesla's oldest models which has been in the market since 2012, but Tesla has been relentlessly updating the car. Tesla's own Model 3 in recent times has given stiff competition to the Model S, and the circle perhaps has been complete with the entry of new electric startup Lucid Motors.

Lucid Air represents a real threat to the Tesla Model S

The Lucid Air starts at $69,900 while offering a car that's faster and more futuristic in design. Tesla probably wants to undercut its latest rival. This also comes after Tesla owners lost a $7,500 US tax credit for that was eligible for the company's cars. Tesla has issued three discounts on the Model S but the competition is stiffer than ever now. Lucid Air doesn't only offer a better package on paper but also out does the Model S in range by a four miles.
