Lucid Motors has again revised down the production estimates for 2022 of its Lucid Air electric sedan. Originally, the American manufacturer set a target of 20,000 vehicles for 2022. Subsequently, this target was revised to 12-14,000 cars.
Now, announcing data for the second quarter of 2022, Lucid Motors announced that it aims to build between 6,000 and 7,000 electric sedans . In the first half of the year, the automaker produced 1,405 cars. Therefore, in this second part of the year Lucid Motors will have to; accelerate production if it really intends to achieve the new goal.
Mass production of a car in large volumes is not; an easy thing. We can't help but remember all the problems Tesla had when he & egrave; treaty to put Model 3 into production. Furthermore, the period is not; certainly easy due to component supply problems. Peter Rawlinson , CEO of Lucid Motors, points out that the delays are due to the supply chain and logistics challenges they have faced. The problems would, however, have been identified and the builder would already be; intervening.
We have identified the main bottlenecks and are taking the appropriate measures, bringing our logistics operations within the company, hiring new people in key sectors and restructuring our logistics and production organization.
The CEO says he is confident that the problems will be resolved in a short time and points out that the company already has; collected over 37,000 bookings representing approximately $ 3.5 billion in potential sales. All that remains is to wait to see if Lucid Motors will really succeed; to overcome the difficulties and to bring production up to speed.
