Amid the struggle to meet production targets, Lucid was faced with a recall for a model that had already been sold. The luxury EV maker has issued a recall for the Lucid Air due to issues stemming from the car's wiring harness.
The recall was made for 1,117 Lucid Air which may have been affected due to issues relating to the ethernet wiring harness for the Glass Cockpit instrument panel.
Based on information from the NHTSA website, the instrument panel can be deactivated so it cannot display information such as speed, range, and warning indicators that have the potential to increase the risk of an accident.
The recall covers all Air Dream Edition and Grand Touring 2022 models. Affected owners can call Lucid customer service at 1-888-995-8243 and state the recall number NCR-22-01-0. Lucid has until June 20 to contact you and let you know your car was affected.
A Lucid spokesperson has provided an official statement about the recall which you can see below.
“For Lucid, the safety of our customers and their families is the highest priority. Lucid is recalling certain model year 2022 Lucid Air vehicles because of the possibility that the wiring connection to the instrument panel may not have been secured properly during assembly. The recall applies to 1.117 vehicles that have been delivered to customers, and it is estimated that the defect is present on 1% of cars. Lucid is not aware of any instances when these components have failed in a vehicle or caused an interruption to the instrument display panel .”
Previously, Lucid announced plans to build a production facility in Saudi Arabia that targeted to have a production capacity of up to 155,000 vehicles per year.
Previously, Lucid announced plans to launch a luxury sedan in Europe later this year. Lucid will launch a limited number of Lucid Air Dream Edition P and R sedans to customers in Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Norway by the end of 2022.
