Arizona Plant Grows to Accommodate Lucid’s Upcoming Electric Vehicle Models

Gravity SUV Manufacturing Location Revealed

Lucid has recently declared the enlargement of its Advanced Manufacturing Plant (AMP-1) as part of their efforts to enhance the production of their current Air and upcoming Gravity models, as well as future models.

Lucid CEO Peter Rawlinson expressed his excitement about the company’s manufacturing expansion in Arizona, stating that it is a major achievement as they gear up for the next stage of Lucid’s development.

As a part of its growth plan, the company will be constructing a 3 million-square-foot factory and storage area. This move aims to consolidate multiple facilities onto a single campus, which will include a fresh general assembly line, upgraded quality and Semi-Knock Down (SKD) centers, and enlarged body and paint workshops. Additionally, the logistics center and powertrain facility will be relocated and the latter is slated for expansion.

According to recent reports, the AMP-1 will soon have a new stamping facility that is vertically integrated and designed to uphold the “highest quality standards and provide greater flexibility.” This new facility is expected to start operating later this year and is aimed at lowering costs. This move is crucial in addressing the significant losses incurred from selling electric vehicles, with some cases reporting losses as high as $300,000 per vehicle.

When it comes to the variety of models available, Lucid’s recent expansion is expected to strengthen their goal of releasing a popular midsize car that can compete with the Tesla Model 3. Priced at approximately $50,000, the introduction of this more budget-friendly Lucid EV will undoubtedly keep the manufacturing process running smoothly and at full capacity.

There have been speculations that the electric vehicle manufacturer is considering entering the electric pickup market. However, recent updates from Lucid have revealed that a pickup model is not currently in their plans. Nonetheless, as they improve their facilities and streamline production, this decision may potentially be reconsidered.

At present, the growth will aid in the manufacture of the Gravity sports utility vehicle, set to commence in the latter part of this year.

According to Steven David, senior VP of operations, “This expanded state-of-the-art plant will bring greater operational efficiency to our manufacturing process and allow us to continue to deliver our high-quality, groundbreaking electric vehicles to our customers.” The statement highlights the significance of the newly expanded plant in enhancing the company’s manufacturing capabilities and ensuring the continued delivery of top-notch electric vehicles to their valued customers.

The success of Lucid will heavily depend on maximizing operational effectiveness, and we are pleased to witness advancement in this aspect.
