CASA GRANDE — Lucid Motors has started installing the equipment for the assembly line for its electric luxury sedan at its new manufacturing plant in Casa Grande.
“Our team of automotive experts and industry partners have started installing the main line in the “Body in White” shop along with the large dip tanks required for the painting process,” said Mike Boike, the director of manufacturing and head of Arizona operations.
According to Lucid’s website, the installation involved the first of nine shipments from Japan of manufacturing equipment and robots that will be used in the plant to build the Lucid Air sedan. More equipment is being shipped and due to arrive on schedule to get the plant on Casa Grande’s southwest side up and running before the end of the year.
