Anyone have any idea when these charging stations will be available for owners?

Are you in some way connected to lucid The reason I say that is my Lucid tech guy doesn’t know??

It’s been posted on the forums a few times, but this far unsubstantiated, so I assume this is just a repeat.

Actually was told late q1 2022 before then q2 and that it's being held up by regulators.

That's likely the range for the different options shown (plug and play vs wall mount EVSE)
Yes. Plug version will run at 40 amps in a 50 amp circuit for 9.6kW. Hardwire will run at 80 amps in a 100 amp circuit for 19.2 kW.

It will come out eventually. I can do double duty on the ChargePoint Flex and top off with the mobile EVSE in a 120v outlet until the Lucid wall unit is released. At that time I can look at the costs and see if I want to go that route.

Lucid Air GT,
I’m glad to get the word on Q2 availability. I’d already contracted with an electrician to get a 100 amp line pre-installed in my garage for the wall charger, only to learn that local code in Maryland requires a charger spec chart and installation instructions to be submitted with the permit application before the permit can be granted. Per my DA, these documents are not yet available for the wall charger, so the 100 amp line install is on hold.

Am hoping to get the whole wall charger install done before my GT arrives. I ordered Cosmos Silver with Mojave and 19” wheels, reserved mid-Dec 2021, so if the silvers are one of the later colors being produced, who knows?

Don’t worry… at the rate Lucid is going on Grey and Silver, cars, you will be lucky to get it by Q3.

If I am told Q3 or don’t get a realistic update by the end of March, I am getting off this bus and sticking with someone who knows what they are doing.

Wait, what? One is going to be able to do home back-up through a 14-50 outlet? Interesting

I imagine that if you want to take full use of the charger and have bidirectional charging, it would have to be hardwired.

Nothing? It's not plugged into anything or am I missing something here?

I've dealt with multiple outages at our previous house. We are currently moving and I am not able to get any outage history for this house. We have a Kohler generator at house we are leaving which covers the entire house. If I am at work or out of town for an extended outage the loads chosen for the car will not be covered. I know this sounds obvious but I wonder whether this is actually practical?

I am in contact with a company that sells a back-up system and I am thinking about using a different system for essential loads, refrigerator and freezer and put everything else up to 19.2kW on the car. Its a major expense to have two transfer switches and two or more panels to get this to work.

SA just told me the Lucid charger is now mid year
I don't understand why Lucid can not issue information of the interface to the house so we can plan ahead. It takes time to design purchase and install the house side of the system. I am sure they have the information.
