Hi,

I placed an order for an AGT on 12/26. I ordered while in Palm Beach, but I live near DC so Tysons Corner will probably be my go to studio.

Full disclosure, I made the reservation on an impulse & am still checking things. I drive a Panemera right now so this is my first EV.

Question: I live in an apartment currently so at-home charging isn't an option, but my work has chargers with the J1772 connector. Will this work with the AGT? On their website, Lucid only mentions the Type 2 and CCS connectors.

Also, bit disappointed that there is no Heads Up Display. I absolutely love them. Might see if I can get an aftermarket HUD installed before I take delivery. The one in the EQS & even the Kia EV have AR navigation and that's a strong pull for me.

Regardless, I'm not expecting delivery until Q3 2022. Especially since I ordered Zenith Red & 20" tires.

Congrats on your order and welcome aboard! You will love your BEV. we have had a Nissan Leaf for over 3 years and it has been great as a local car (just not enough range for trips so looking forward to my GT).

As for charging, apartment dwellers always have an issue. It is nice that the work has the level 2 J1772 chargers and, yes, they work with the Lucid. You will definitely be able to use those to fill up during the day. The CCS connector has both Level 2 and Level 3 charging capabilities. The J1772 plug will fit into it (Level 2 charging) and there are a couple of additional connections that are used when connected to a Level 3 CCS plug. You might ask your apartment complex to consider adding charging stations or the ability for you to add one if you have an assigned spot. The landlords are beginning to realize that those amenities are a leasing and retention items that more people are demanding.

On a Lucid, the level 2 charging can rung at 80amps but it is unlikely that your work is at that speed. Most are either 40 and or 32 amp maximum. But even at those speeds, you will pretty much fill a nearly empty battery to full or nearly full while you are at work.

Yeah, the owner of my apartment actually has plans to install charging spot(s) in 2022 but I don't want to count on that until it happens.

I'm excited to get my first EV! The connectors & charging stuff is a bit confusing tho, there is definitely a learning curve. How do I find out if the chargers at my work are 80 amps? Does it say that somewhere on them? If it helps, I know they are maintained by Charge Point.

I really doubt that they would be. Since they are ChargePoint, you should be able to see that information from the ChargePoint or PlugShare apps. My guess is 40 or 32. Possibly less which would be a bummer. Also the facilities manager at work should be able to tell you, or another EV owner that charges can tell you what their charging speed is. Just remember that car has a maximum and the Lucid will charge at the maximum Level 2 speed you can give it. For example, my Leaf can only accept 6.6 kw so any 32 amp unit is overkill. The lucid will accept 19.2kw.
