Construction is complete on our very first EV factory.

Introducing Lucid AMP-1, the future of electric vehicle production.

Just under a year after breaking ground in Casa Grande, Arizona, we’ve finished construction on our first electric vehicle factory and have entered the commissioning process. Known as Lucid AMP-1 (Advanced Manufacturing Plant), it’s not just a first for us, it’s also the first greenfield, dedicated EV factory to be built in North America.

Future-ready
AMP-1 was designed for what’s next. This spring it will start producing the groundbreaking Lucid Air. Looking forward, the site also allows for additional expansion, with the next phase expected to begin in 2021 – enabling production of Project Gravity, our premiere SUV.

Introducing Lucid AMP-1, the future of electric vehicle production.

Accelerating innovation

The all-new manufacturing system at AMP-1 embraces advanced processes, such as an aircraft-inspired riveted and bonded monocoque body structure replacing spot welds. This gives the Lucid Air state-of-the-art structural efficiency.

As we roll out the first Air models this spring, AMP-1 has the capacity to deliver up to 30,000 units per year. And in its final form, the manufacturing capacity will be up to 400,000 annually. We’ll begin production with the Lucid Air Dream Edition, followed quickly by Grand Touring and Touring models. The Lucid Air Pure joins the lineup in early 2022.
