It appears that not only Tesla has problems with its electric vehicles as it seems that Lucid Motors, one of Tesla’s newest competitors on the electrical vehicles niche has to recall all cars that were sold in 2022. Happily for Lucid Motors the company has only sold 1.117 vehicles in 2022. Just like other new companies in this segment of the market, Lucid Motors is also dealing with problems in increasing the production capabilities.
According to a NTHSA report, the authority that regulates roads and road safety in the United States, Lucid Motors must recall all Lucid Air Dream and Grand Touring vehicles.
These electric vehicles are equipped with multiple unsecured cables that, in time, can interrupt the video signal of the vehicle. Considering that most important information is being displayed on this screen, such as speed, autonomy and even road safety indicators, this malfunction can endanger the lives of passengers and drivers.
Lucid Motors will mail recall letters to all clients who bought vehicles that are affected by this problem and the repairs will be done for free. Unofficial information from inside Lucid Motors confirms that the manufacturing process was changed in order to avoid this malfunction on vehicles that are being built in the factory right now.
Even if Lucid Motors only sold 1.117 vehicles until now, the Lucid Air model has received a lot of orders considering that we’re basically talking about a new company. Lucid Motors still has to deliver approximately 25.000 vehicles.
It appears that the current Lucid Air owners are “Beta testers” for Lucid, as the company has not yet fixed all problems before delivering the final product. Unfortunately, this new malfunction cannot be fixed through a software update as it usually happens with Tesla cars.
