CASA GRANDE — Lucid Motors is “achingly close” to rolling out its luxury EV, the Lucid Air, according to Public Policy Lead Daniel Witt.
Witt spoke along with several other panelists about the future of the state’s electrification industry at the Arizona Manufacturers Council’s Environmental Sustainability Summit on Wednesday.
Witt said that Lucid had completed its “release candidate” phase and was now into the “production representative” phase of the Lucid Air, which involves speeding and slowing down the assembly line to evaluate how to maximize output. Once that was finished, Witt said the company would begin the sale of their vehicles, meeting the company’s stated goal of releasing the Air in the second half of 2021.
