Lucid Air Deliveries Hit New Record In Q1 2024

By automotive-mag.com 4 Min Read

Lucid Group increased its electric car sales to a new quarterly record level during the first quarter of 2024, while production—unsurprisingly—decreased.

During the period, the company delivered 1,967 Lucid Air luxury all-electric cars, 40% more than a year ago. That’s more than in the previously best Q4 2022 (1,932 units). Meanwhile, production amounted to 1,728 Airs, 25% less than a year ago.

Such results do not surprise us. First, sales were expected to increase because Lucid reduced prices quite substantially in February and offered discounts on inventory cars (incentives escalated to almost $30,000 in some cases according to a recent report).

Secondly, production was noticeably lower than a year ago and in Q4 2023—probably intentionally to unload the relatively high inventory. It helped. According to our data, the company, for the very first time, managed to sell more EVs than it produced (the difference was 239 units).

The accumulated difference between production and sales over the past two years is now about 5,000 units—still a lot when compared to the sales volume (an equivalent to more than two quarters). There is a chance—we guess—that Lucid might try to use its vehicle surplus when will be launching its all-new, Lucid Gravity model. The factory could focus on the new model.

Lucid’s results are far from its original targets (20,000 units in 2022), but the car business is never easy, especially for start-ups.

It will be interesting to see the company’s new outlook next month. Lucid plans to host a conference call to discuss its first quarter 2024 financial results on Monday, May 6, 2024.
