Wheel Tire Vehicle Car Window

On yesterday's investor call, Peter Rawlinson gave a tiny update on the Gravity.


He didn't explicitly say it, but the "first half of 2024" would be a delay compared to what they were promising just a few months ago: Lucid Gravity on track for 2023 release

This makes sense given that they also used yesterday's call to announce they'd be building significantly fewer Airs this year than they had planned, which they blame on the chip shortage. If they're having trouble getting the silicon they need for a car they already have supply contracts for, I can believe they'd need to be more conservative for the Gravity.

Still disappointing though.

Did they drop any hint about what's there to expect when they say it will be "an ultra high efficiency SUV, which nobody's ever done before"?
No one knows all the details of Gravity SUV as of yet. It has the same platform as Lucid Air and probably has everything the Air has.

Only knowledge so far is that it has a higher milage than any present electric SUV. It is a family car and not for Off Road use.

I wouldn't be that negative. That is two years from now and a whole lot of things could happen over 24 months.

Next quarter results may give a better idea.
I would be more positive on things if Lucid would be more forthcoming on information on the orders. When deadlines are missed and they don't communicate anything, it is a problem, especially when you are paying $140k for a car,. I expect more and currently am very dissatisfied with Lucid customer service.

I appreciate your honest opinion. I am not a company spokes person. I do agree and understand with your point of view as a consumer. LUCID is not yet a very well established company with years of experience.

When a young couple had their first baby there a lot of struggle and learning in taking care of the baby. Did you ever had to change the diaper of the baby without having any knowledge of how to do it. I did that 50 years ago and it was not fun. When the same couple have their fourth baby, everything seem so very simple.

We all need to have patient for a company which started everything from bottom up in every technology and their achievement needed to be commended.

As time goes by, I am sure their customer service may catch up and exceed any other company. I believe it.

If you get a chance, you should call Jeff Curry or Doreen Allen to visit the Head Quarters or visit Casa Grande Assembly Plant. You will be impressed with their dedication and effort to make the Lucid happen in spite of all competition in the Auto-World. The Lucid Team is very receptive to every and all input from Lucid lovers. If you need their direct phone numbers, please let me know. I will get their permission to provide them to you.

They should have already cut their teeth on the communication issues when producing / delivering the Dreams. The same feedback is being given here. I do have an email to Doreen Allen from two days ago of which I am still waiting for an answer. She acknowledged the email but has not gotten back to me.

May be you are in line for your reply. I don't know how many emails she get a week.

Let me know when you hear from Lucid.

She finally contacted me on Friday afternoon. Seems like they had a meeting between production and sales to finally get their s**t together. At least I got an update and real information. Looks like some of the cars (like mine) are going to be 6 months to delivery instead of the 2-4 they specified due to supply chain issues. From my guess it depends on the color and interior trim that is causing that, although Doreen would not specify. Again, having the DA letting us know the status would be appreciated in a company that wants to be known for customer service. I hope and expect that it will get better.

I am sure a lot of growing pains.

Time will take care of it, I am sure.

Not easy for a new company with a brand new car built from bottom up.
