At West Palm Beach Studio, I asked in October and was told November, asked in November and was told December, asked a couple of weeks ago and was told January. @Sandvinsd, I may be joining you. I locked in my confirmation at end of November. I bought my Tesla without a test drive and think I committed way more than $1,000 at that point.been A reservation holder since early April. Confirmed my order in November. Was promised a test drive ‘soon’ back in June when the pre-production vehicles were being made. told that there would be a fleet of them across the country. They would contact me to arrange one.
I have kept asking.….. so far no test drives in San Diego. I have told both my SA and DA that I want one. been promised one but they caant say when. I have have joked that my first test drive will be when my car is delivered. Thinking I’m right. This is one of the things I have been most frustrated with Lucid about.

I hope all is well. Thank you for your interest in Lucid Motors and the Air.
We are aiming to begin production of the Lucid Air in the second half of 2021. In fact, we're currently building our Release Candidates at our state-of-the-art production facility in Casa Grande, Arizona, which is a huge step towards bringing the Lucid Air to market!
Release Candidates are our last batch of vehicles before production, RC's will be used as our test drive fleet which will tour the country.
I will reach out directly when test drives are available.
Now we are at the end of the year and no test drives. The San Diego studio was also to be opened in Q4. It is still boarded up and not a hint of an opening date.On Oct 11, 2021, at 10:10 AM, xxx wrote:

Very glad to announce that we have started production of our top model, the Dream Edition today at our factory in Casa Grande, Arizona. See the announcement here, Lucid starts production of the groundbreaking Lucid Air in Arizona.
We are happy to share the final EPA range for our top models has been announced and they did not disappoint.
Once we start production, we will be building trims from the top down, starting with the Dream Edition, Grand Touring, Touring, and finally the Pure.
When we release more specific timing I’ll reach out directly.

SCOTTDDLE ?Lucken, I can confirm this (sort of). I went by that same center yesterday to see when they thought they might be offering test drives. I was told the same thing from a priority standpoint. When I first made the reservation, I was told that they would give priority to reservation holders. The confirmed part is something of a later add it seems. I don't think they're not offering test drives to reservation holders at all. I think those just won't happen until they've worked through the confirmed. I'm guessing that they will move quickly through the confirmed as it's likely to be just the AGT reservations. I guess I'm not surprised by the new policy given that people who have already committed $1000 towards purchasing are probably more pressing to get to.
FWIW, I was able to set up a test drive for tomorrow.
