Good questions! I have been looking at other cars. I test drove the Plaid, the BMWi4, and the Mercedes EQS. I also drove the Taycan. In the end, there were a few key selling points for me to decide on the Lucid! Besides the car looks gorgeous, it is innovative! I prefer cars made in the USA and I especially like that it’s headquarters are in California. It comes with a good Warrenty, tax credit, free charging for the 3 years (although I wish it was longer), and long range on a charge. As a Tesla owner, the new models feel to simplistic and does not give me the awe factor anymore! When I sit inside a Lucid, it appeals to all my senses both the interior and exterior. Or course, there are a couple of minor things I hope they will tweak as they do software upgrades, like the blinker sound and wireless charging port. The last thing that I will mention that sold me on the Lucid was the service! Everyone has been very knowledgeable, professional, and attentive. And Lucid has a fleet of mobile service vans!!!

Firstly, congratulations @JC Yacco. What makes me avoid EVs, for now, is their price. I believe they might get cheaper in the future. What was your reason BTW?
Thank you for your well wishes! There are several reasons why I am willing to get into the EV market. First of all, there are substantial tax incentives that lower the cost. The federal and state governments as well as the electric company pay me to buy an EV! Also, the cost are reduced further due to low maintenance and no fuel cost! Saving money is important and lower cost helps, but owning an EV reduces emissions and noise! I throughly believe in EV’s and reducing our dependence on foreign oil! It’s good for the economy and good for the environment! That is why I am willing to pay for an EV!

Placed my order! Went with the 21’s on the GT! I was told it would take 2-4 months to build and deliver. I am wondering now they cut production, will it take longer?
As someone who briefly had 21s (Arachnids) on the Tesla Model S, reconsider those wheels if this will be your daily driver? These are very heavy cars, which makes them even more prone to blowing tires. I blew three tires in roughly six weeks, all were unavoidable. Ex: a trench cut across all lanes of I-95 South, not in a work zone so traffic was traveling at typical highway speeds. That type of blowout is not patchable, and replacing the tire is a big time suck.

I asked my delivery coordinator this same question. She said the lower guidance for 2022 production will not delay GT deliveries and 2-4 months is still a valid forecast.

Nope. Not valid. The accurate timeline is 4+ months. Since they don’t communicate, I cannot put a range on that. Just know that they are missing the 2-4 month delivery window and are not communicating any information to the customers.
