May 5, 2022

Lucid Group has published its Q1 2022 earnings report and it shows that the EV company has delivered 360 vehicles to customers this quarter. They also saw 30,000 reservations, which is up from 25,000 reservations in Q4.

During the earnings call, Lucid said they delivered 300 cars just in April 2022. So production does seem to be ramping up. Lucid also said they produced 700 cars in Q1, not all were delivered in Q1 obviously. Personally, I would hope 1,000 to 2,000 delivered cars by the end of Q2 – I hope.

Lucid announced new pricing for the Lucid Air, overall the prices are going up 10 to 12% across the trims.

Here are the highlights:

  • Q1 revenue of $57.7M driven by customer deliveries of 360 vehicles in the quarter

Lucid reported Q1 revenue of $57.7 million on deliveries of 360 vehicles to customers in the first quarter.

“Our Q1 revenue was $57.7 million, primarily driven by higher customer deliveries of Lucid Air vehicles. We continue to have a healthy balance sheet, closing the quarter with nearly $5.4 billion of cash on hand, which we believe is sufficient to fund the Company well into 2023,” said Sherry House, Lucid’s CFO. “In addition to the 30,000 customer reservations we announced today, we recently signed a deal in which the government of Saudi Arabia committed to purchase up to 100,000 electric vehicles from Lucid over the next 10 years.”

“Similar to many companies in our industry, we continue to face global supply chain and logistics challenges, including Covid-related factory shutdowns in China. We are working closely with our suppliers to mitigate the impact of disruptions,” House added. “While any extended disruptions could result in an impact to our production forecast, today we are reiterating our 12,000-14,000 vehicle production forecast for 2022 based on the information we have at this point combined with our mitigation plans.
