The rep who took me on the test drive said the suspension will be changing on the Pure RWD next year. I forget the exact change, but it will be a slight downgrade. Suspension is very important to me so I'd like to get the Pure before that change is made. I doubt that Lucid will offer two suspensions so I am getting one while it has the same suspension as the higher end trims.
Yea that's correct, the Pure RWD won't have the adaptive dampers that the other models get. That may not necessarily be a bad thing though. I actually don't like that damper stiffness is locked to powertrain settings. Meaning if you want to have the power of swift on tap, you have to deal with the stiffer suspension. You can't choose the softer suspension and faster powertrain. The only saving grace is that i don't actually think the active dampers do much, it's not as noticeable to me as other cars with adaptive dampers.
