I think Lucid is also having a sales problem. While they claim they have orders for 10,000 Cars this may be high. Here are the problems I see:It's interesting how different perspectives can be. Our overall impression was that the interior design looked to be almost 'toyish'. We also found it a bit on the noisy side.
I seem to recall reading that they're having trouble attaining the sales volume they thought they'd have.
1. Certainly not the most important but interest in a Forum is an indication of overall interest in a Car. RIVIAN and the Porsche Taycan have well over 3,000 members. Lucid cannot break 160 members. A few members have their own private Chat Room. This is not a knock on them but just a criticism of the Forum.
2. The production delays have certainly caused some people to cancel their orders or lose interest.
3. The Stock price is an indication of the health of the company. I realize today was an unusual trading day for Lucid but the price could not hold $19.
4. The Design for some people is now 5 years old. The Luxury end of the business is in serious decline. There is no growth in large luxury Sedans.
Lucid needs to deliver 200 cars by the end of the year. No one really knows why they keep getting delayed. For most Consumer there is no need for a Car that can do 500 miles. It’s nice to talk about it but how many times do any of us drive in a year non stop 500 miles. I may end up getting my Lucid but right now I’m not sure.
