This is a very important step for the company.
After years of delay, Lucid finally managed to argue last year and the financial support to build his plant in Arizona.
It aimed to start deliveries by the end of the year, and now it looks like it will hit that target.
Today, Lucid announced plans to host an event on October 30 to deliver the first units, Dream Edition, of its first vehicle, the Lucid Air:
Lucid Group (NASDAQ: LCID), which sets new standards with its advanced luxury electric vehicles, today announced the first customer deliveries of the Dream Edition launch versions of Lucid Air, which sets new benchmarks in autonomy and efficiency for electric vehicles. The first group of Dream Edition reservation holders are invited to pick up their vehicles on Saturday, October 30. Highlights will be shared on Lucid’s social media throughout the weekend. The Dream Delivery event follows the company’s start of production last month at Lucid’s Casa Grande, Ariz., First all-new electric vehicle manufacturing facility in North America.
In addition to the delivery event, Lucid says the new owners will embark on a “Lucid Rally” with some of the automaker’s leadership to showcase the Air.
Peter Rawlinson, CEO and CTO, Lucid Group, commented on the announcement:
“Creating the Lucid Air has truly been a labor of love, with deliveries to customers representing the culmination of years of effort by the entire Lucid team. So I am truly delighted to hand over the keys to our first dear customers and accompany them on a maiden voyage through the iconic California countryside.
The Lucid Air will become the first electric car with a range of over 500 miles to deliver.
