The manufacturing capacity is estimated at 34,000 cars annually. Once the second phase will be added, it will increase to about 90,000 annually, which probably means more than 50,000 electric SUVs “Gravity”.

The completed factory (4 phases) will have a combined manufacturing capacity of about 400,000 cars per year.

Lucid has also a separate factory, 6 miles away, which produces drive units, power electronics, “Wunderbox”, and battery modules/packs.
