Lucid Motors has announced it will unveil the production version of its luxury electric vehicle, the Lucid Air, in a global online reveal on 9 September. During the unveil, Lucid will share the vehicle’s final interior and exterior designs, new details on production specifications, available configurations, and pricing information.
In the same announcement, Lucid also shared updates on key growth and progress updates across a range of areas concerning its workforce and manufacturing, including its 1,000+ employees returning to work to resume vehicle development, more than 160 new hires in the last 90 days, and the status of its Arizona factory.
The full press release from Lucid Motors reads:
We are proud of our entire Lucid team, who continue to rise to the challenge of this unprecedented time and have found new ways to keep working toward our goals. We can assure you that our productivity has continued undiminished. We have, in fact, welcomed over 160 new Lucid team members in the last 90 days alone. And we are in the midst of a phased return to our Silicon Valley headquarters in accordance with local and state guidelines, along with our own strict protocols designed to protect the health and safety of all Lucid employees.
We are also happy to report that our beta prototype fleet has resumed its comprehensive road and track testing program — and continues the Lucid Air’s drive toward production.
Construction of our Casa Grande, AZ, factory — the first purpose-built EV production facility in the United States — continues with astonishing speed. And we have stayed right on schedule for completion this year. Factory structures are fully enclosed by roofs and walls, and we have been installing major manufacturing components and brand-new production equipment over the past month.
Our dream is coming ever closer to reality. And we could not be more eager to show you the game-changing Lucid Air and what it means for the future of sustainable transportation.
