A long-delayed car factory in Casa Grande is expected to break ground within months.

Electric-car startup Lucid Motors plans to break ground within months on a massive Casa Grande factory expected to produce its first car before the end of 2020, a company official said Friday.
The ambitious plans for a factory that will employ about 745 people in its first phase would be a major boon for the Pinal County economy, should the plans come to fruition.
When Gov. Doug Ducey announced Lucid’s plans in November 2016, the company said its nearly $700 million factory would break ground in 2017 and the cars would be in production by now. But that didn’t happen.
