Just wondering. Is a lucid for real? Will they actually make a car? One that a customer owns? With all the other manufactures out there jumping into the EV world, what the heck is taking Lucid so long?

Seriously …..

According to Peter Rawlinson they're still on tract to start deliveries this year. But I agree I would like some more updates and promotion from the company about where they are right now.

Looks like a lot of vitriol can be expected from Tesla owners. Sadly, misplaced since EV only make up 2.3% of car sales in US, compared to 10% in Europe and need of 50-60%

Follow up. It has nothing to with Tesla or Tesla owners.
yes Tesla is dominating the market. So what.
can Lucid make a dent? That’s the question.

The number one selling car in the UK is the Model 3, and if 10% of the Euromarket is electric, it will only keep rising. 2.3% puts the US behind, but no reason that won't go up. You have to start somewhere; many were pessimistic that Tesla could make it, but they did, so why not Lucid? Some are sure any new company won't make it, but while many do fail, a few will make it through, so long as they have good fundamentals. Rawlinson knows that the Air has to nail it on the initial release which is why the delay is occurring, suppliers are being held to very high standards, which is promising; I am optimistic.

Maybe so. Maybe so.
at the same time the Air is so dam expensive I’m wondering just how many they can sell to make any difference at all?

I wish them luck.

Remember, the vast majority of people finance cars, Rolls Royce sells 5,000 cars a year, no one sneezes at their prices. How many people % pay full price for their cell phone? Price of LUCID is fine with me.

It's a start point. Tesla entered the market at 70k for its Model S; that was leveraged into the Model 3 and Y which are lower price options that proved to be bigger sellers. Rawlinson is hoping to use the efficiencies generated by technology in the Air to produce smaller battery "economy" models. Why copy Tesla, because it's a good strategy and by no means exclusive to them. Luxury cars generate bigger profits per car, so if the Air can compete with Mercedes and similar companies, then that is the market available in attempting to lure those consumers to a BEV. Will it work, well, we will see; nobody here is blindly convinced that it's done deal, but those of us who the support the Air are looking for a futuristic vehicle, and hopefully allow more diversity in the manufacturer pool.

The luxury EV market is basically empty. The Mercedes EQS unfortunately suffers from what I'm going to call the ICE phenomenon. If you watch the documentary "Who killed the Electric Car" you'll know what I mean

Thanks. ive had enough of the ‘’give me your money and we will make it real soon promises’.
Tesla, Rivian, Lucid, Ford. All the Sand.
From 1908 to 1927, the Ford Model T dominated sales in America. The price for a Model T Touring vehicle was $290 or $580 for the Tudor sedan. Drivers at the time could also enroll in a program called the “Ford Weekly Purchase Plan,” where the customer could make a deposit of five dollars at many authorized Ford Dealers across America to purchase a new Ford Model T
