Lucid to set afloat its new Gravity SUV by 2024 with no hiatus

New Delhi:- Lucid announced that it will finally show its new all-electric Gravity SUV in November, but it won't start being produced until late 2024.

The EV company, which has seen a decrease in sales for its highly-regarded but expensive luxury sedan, had originally intended to start making the Gravity at its Arizona factory in late 2023. The date got changed to 2024, but the company didn't say exactly when they would start making things.

In 2020, Lucid showed consumers the Gravity for the first time when they revealed the Air at an event. At that time, the company stated that the Gravity was already far along in the design stage. Lucid already had a model that worked, and people saw it being used in the summer of 2020.
