The Silicon Valley-based manufacturer is using its own in-house technology to develop and produce Lucid Air, one of the world’s most advanced electric cars.
In addition to its final interior and exterior designs, media at the New York Auto Show press conference will be given key details on the Air including production specifications, available configurations and pricing information.
Beta Prototype Testing
Lucid is currently building 80 beta prototypes of the Lucid Air at its Silicon Valley headquarters. Most of these cars — highly representative of the production Air — are designated for exhaustive testing. The company will produce video updates as it tunes 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 Lucid Motors' Casa Grande, AZ, factory is well underway. Most structural steel will be in place by the end of February. The company expects its 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.
