The thought occurred to me that I would hope you would be offered a test drive before fully committing.That "very soon" comment caused me to call Lucid sales to see if there was any update. While they stayed coy about specifcs, I was told that it wouldn't be long before I was contacted about final order configuration. I could get nothing beyond that, however.
I got the vibe that something is imminent, but it could be just my hope talking to my ears.
In an interview, someone from Lucid (I don't remember who) mentioned that cars were being built for press test drives and to go to studios for customer test drives. I'm pretty sure that Grand Touring and later edition customers will be able to test drive a vehicle before firming up an order. However, I have serious doubts that Dream Edition customers will have the opportunity. So far, all the press ride-alongs have been done in Grand Touring versions.. . . I would hope you would be offered a test drive before fully committing.
Or just a test of how willing they are to be guinea pigs. I don't have any faith in most of Elon Musk's claims, but we're taking delivery next week on a Model S Plaid that we have not been able to drive or even sit in. Until yet another round of production delays at Rivian, I was also going to take delivery on an R1S without even having seen it in the flesh.It will be a test of the faith they have in Lucid & Rawlinson.
