Lucid Motors on Monday marked the start of construction of its electric-car manufacturing plant in Casa Grande — a project expected to lead to 4,800 direct and indirect jobs over the next decade.

The first phase of factory construction, representing an investment of more than $300 million, is scheduled for completion in late 2020, with production of Lucid’s first car, the  Air luxury sedan, starting after that.

Company officials say the vehicle will have a range of more than 400 miles and will be able to hit 60 miles per hour in under 2.5 seconds.

“This is the first true inter-city car,” said Peter Rawlinson, Lucid’s chief executive officer and chief technology officer, in reference to the 400-mile range of the Lucid Air. But with an expected sales price “north of $100,000,” the vehicle clearly will have a narrower luxury niche.
