Production Lucid Air to Have Global Reveal in New York in April
Reservations Now Open at $1,000 for Early Production
As we enter a momentous year — one that will conclude with the production Lucid Air rolling off our factory line — we are making significant progress in our mission to set a new standard for sustainable transportation. We’re excited about the Lucid Air’s remarkable in-house technology. The world’s most advanced electric car, it will define Lucid as a company. Forthcoming are details about the global reveal of our production Lucid Air in New York this April, when we will release its production specifications, available configurations, and pricing information. And you can expect regular updates as we reach toward milestones like these:
Beta Prototype Testing
We are building 80 beta prototypes of the Lucid Air right here at our Silicon Valley headquarters. Most of these cars — highly representative of the production Air — are designated for exhaustive testing. We’ll produce video updates as we tune software for traction and stability control, braking, and steering systems; perform body and chassis durability testing; and confirm crash simulations with actual tests.
Factory Construction and Tooling
Construction at our Casa Grande, AZ, factory is well underway. Most structural steel will be in place by the end of February, and you can watch as we complete buildings and install production equipment, including a state-of-the-art paint shop. We expect our first pre-production cars to roll off the line early in Q4 of 2020, with full production following that phase by the end of 2020.
Sales and Service Network
Our first stores are taking shape. They will not only give customers a firsthand experience of our vehicles but provide exceptional service once they are on the road. We will soon release more information about specific locations and the overall plan for our sales and service network.
This forward momentum will continue with plans for a nationwide Lucid Air tour this summer, exclusive store openings, and the launch of a groundbreaking configurator so you can build your own vehicle to personal preferences.
