Got a call from the delivery day concierge...the only waiver I have to sign in person is a media waiver. The license plate waiver was signed with the final purchase agreement along with a personal data collection waiver. I will not be getting my front plate mounted.

I'm confused. A video was posted that was taken at a Delivery Event today at the Lucid Design Studio in West Palm Beach, FL, very similar to the October 30 event in Case Grande.

I live in Florida, and my Delivery Advisor told me that my delivery would have to be to my home as Florida has not yet issued a dealer license to Lucid. I asked whether there was any way I could go to Miami or West Palm to pick up the car at a Studio, thinking that there would be someone on hand to orient us to the car and its controls. She said that was not an option but that I would be given an orientation to the car at my home.

Yet this video seems to show Airs being delivered at a Design Studio. (I've been to that Studio, and that is definitely where this event occurred):


I continue to be baffled by how much contradictory information comes from the Sales and Delivery teams at Lucid.
If it's any consolation, my delivery location wasn't ironed out until after I started the final purchase agreement paperwork. I originally was going to take delivery at the house, changed it to Torrance about 3 weeks ago, and then was asked to take delivery in Beverly Hills for a "more curated experience." Perhaps things have changed since your original discussion about delivery with your sales advisor.

Could be. However, I talked to her two days ago, and she seemed anxious to give me any good news she could. For example, without my asking, she brought up that she was remembering to be sure my car had no front license plate holder put on it. Yet she made no mention that I would now have a choice about where to take delivery.

It's not really that big a deal to me where I take delivery. My core concern is whether Lucid is improving the situation with providing its sales and service people with information that is of legitimate concern to customers -- something that has been their weakest suit thus far.

My cousin works for Lucid and we have a car in order. From what I'm told, they're almost done w/ schedule all the D.A for production. It's more or less just making sure that the service centers are setup to deliver and service the cars - if needed.

When was that picture taken? Hard to tell from the perspective, but it looks like 6 rows of 4 cars side by side?

No Zenith Red

I take it they are all Dream Editions.

Well, you could have customer service from a “not to be named” EV maker like this….

I'm just very afraid there's a major issue with this color.

When the Doug DeMuro video drops, that's all she wrote! I just wish I'd bought more stock at $23
From what it seems based on hmp10's travails, Lucid is waiting to produce the Zenith Red Dreams until the end, after the original 3 colors have been completed. This makes me wonder if they're actually going to start with the red GTs, as the paint shop will already be set up with the red paint.

I keep wishing I bought more when it was <$20. I originally bought on the CCIV rumor at $15 and always said I'd buy more if it went back below $20. I missed my chance 2 months ago and now it's heading up and up. I may buy more if it drops below $40, but still kicking myself for not going on my instincts earlier.

I was thinking the same thing about zenith red, once set up for the comparably few orders of this for the Dream they would segue into the GT. But just how deep into the orders would they go if producing a few hundred? Either you might get moved up the line or put in the back of it after another round of colors depending on your order number

If the reservation tracker on this forum is any indication, Zenith Red will be one of the two most popular colors (along with Quantum Gray), so I could see the sense in running a production batch of reds as soon as possible in order to get early sales numbers up.

Looks like 8 delivered in the Chicago area:

And at least one to someone's home in Florida:
Not a Zenith Red in sight at any of these 4 delivery events (Casa Grande, West Palm Beach, Chicago, Florida home) despite Zenith Red's popularity on this forum's reservation tracker.

It seems almost certain they ran Zenith Red only at the end of the Dream production run. However, I also wonder how many Dream customers knew about the addition of Zenith Red to the color roster for the Dream. It was only added to the order configurator shortly before order confirmations opened up, and neither my sales rep nor delivery advisor brought up its availability before I confirmed my order. I caught the change only because I had been given a heads up from someone else at Lucid several weeks earlier, and I was watching for it. I'm not saying the change could not be found on the website, just that it wasn't made very prominent.

Oh, well. Maybe I'll end up with the rarest of the rare Dream Editions -- a Zenith Red one.

Illinois requires front license plates, but I see that none of the cars delivered in Chicago have front plates. As none of the cars at any Delivery Event so far have front license plates, I asked my Delivery Advisor whether all the Dream customers were opting out of them. She said it was a "mixed bag". I assume that means the front holder won't be installed until after delivery for those who want it?

Living in Indiana I'd be peeved beyond belief if they put one on. Is it on configurator?

If you opt out in a state where it is required, they make you sign a waiver. I doubt they would install one on states that don't have the requirement.

It's part of the paperwork package you sign to for the final purchase agreement.

I don't know if the statement was accurate but someone stated that the crash test rating was with the holder, so you had to waive it regardless. Can this be confirmed?

You might be referring to a post I put up when this discussion started. I mentioned that the new Tesla Model S is delivered with a front license plate holder because it got its crash test ratings with the holder installed. However, since the holder is now mandatory for a Tesla buyer (it used to be a delete option), it is attached with adhesive foam tape so that it can be removed by the owner without leaving any trace on the car. In that early post, I was questioning whether the Lucid front holder would be mounted the same way for the same reason.

We have since found out that Lucid will deliver the car without a front holder at the buyer's request, as long as the buyer will sign a waiver. As I've not seen the waiver, I don't know whether it just covers the issue of state requirements for front license plates or whether it extends to cover other issues, such as crash test ratings.
