Doesn't look like the reservation list is updating. I am #81575.
Hi @lucidite,

After you fill out all the * Required fields and click Submit at the bottom, it should go through immediately and update the Form Responses sheet.
I tested it on my end just to make sure and was successful.

Can you try submitting your reservation again?

Thanks,
Admin

Until then --

I confirmed my order on the Lucid website on September 21 (Dream Edition Performance, Zenith Red, 21" wheels) and got a call from my sales rep a couple of hours later to tell me my "delivery advisor" would contact me shortly. The advisor called first thing on September 22 (8 a.m. her time), took all my registration information, discussed payment methods, and told me the car would be delivered to my home as Florida has not yet issued a dealer license to Lucid that would allow them to deliver from one of the two Design Studios or Service Centers in Florida. She said production would begin in two-to-four months.

She also told me that cars were being put into the production schedule based on date of order confirmation with a delivery advisor, not on date of reservation. As I was one of the first to confirm with a delivery advisor, she said my car would be one of the first produced. Putting all this together, I'm guessing (hoping for) delivery between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Honestly, I have mixed feelings about getting such an early production car. But after over three years of waiting since I first reserved, I'll take it.

Not sure if they are not tell you real dates because of the coming Monday event or maybe they have more early reservation holders. There is pic from Reddit and I posted via twitter that las dealer license plate which is first ever been also has be manufacture plate so will see.

If Lucid wanted to keep its start of production (SOP) date secret for the time being, I could see them saying SOP was not yet determined or not yet confirmed. However, I don't see what their motive would be to say SOP is two-to-four months out if they know it to be significantly sooner.

I guess you could argue they want to create a surprise to the upside by producing much earlier than they're saying . . . but that could just as easily be interpreted to mean they have been clueless about where they are in the start-up cycle.

I really don't see any reason why Lucid would see something to be gained by communicating false SOP dates.

Just pure marketing!

I think people are discounting just how much information there is about production issues still in play.

As recently as three weeks ago, "Motor Trend" was given a car for a test drive that was still due a front suspension recalibration as well as a hardware changeout on the anti-roll bars. Such things are not done-in-a-day things, as both changes will require validation and extensive testing before release.

Last week when my sales rep called me after I confirmed my order, I asked about a couple of engineering changes I had heard about, and she told me that there were still some engineering and design issues that had not reached final resolution. I heard the same thing when I raised these matters two days ago at the Miami Design Studio.

Just a couple of months ago -- already into the second half of the year during which cars are to be delivered -- Rawlinson said there were several hundred quality and design issues still being sorted out with suppliers and that Covid issues were still a problem in working with some of the vendors.

I find it revealing that Lucid would say SOP would be in two-to-four months. If they are planning to surprise to the upside, they could just as easily have said SOP in two months and then surprise us with an announcement that production was starting next week or next month.

Giving such a wide window for SOP suggests to me not the planning of a surprise, but that a lot of things are still more up in the air (no pun intended) than a lot of people realize and that Lucid still cannot pin down just when it is all likely to be resolved.

I am very envious of those of you who have one reserved and are receiving yours shortly. Supposedly delivery e-mails are being sent out today/tomorrow about the first deliveries. Anyone received one of these e-mails? The Vancouver event is coming this Saturday and I plan on attending.
