After announcing its expansion plans on the European market and subsequently on the Chinese one, Lucid also focuses on the production aspect, making known its intention to create a new factory in Saudi Arabia. The plant will complement the existing structure in the United States, and will be inaugurated by 2025 or at the latest by 2026: an economic boost could come from Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia, who is eager to see an electric car manufacturing site built in the economic city of King Abdullah, Jeddah.
However, the hypothesis that Lucid decides to build his new factory in another city is not excluded: according to what was reported by Carscoops, the US brand is also thinking about new city of Neom, which is developing in the north-western part of the country. “Now that we are successfully manufacturing and selling automobiles in the United States, our attention is turning to this new factory to be built in Saudi Arabia”Lucid president Andrew Liveris commented at a mining conference in Riyadh. The number one of the US brand also admitted that the company is having a number of difficulties with the supply chain, problems that Lucid hopes to put behind him as soon as possible.
