Lucid Motors announced this morning that the EV company is expanding to Europe with the opening of its first Lucid Studio in Europe and with the availability of a very limited number of Dream Editions for some early reservation holders.
Dream Editions In Europe
Last month, Lucid did an unofficial unveiling of the Dream Edition in Europe at some sort of event. We posted videos and more details in the post I linked to above. But now, Lucid Motors officially confirmed the Dream Edition is coming to Europe.
Lucid said it will offer a “very limited number to existing reservation holders in Europe to celebrate the launch of Lucid Air.” These will be offered to a select number of “reservation holders in Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and Switzerland,” the company said. Lucid said if you placed a reservation already, “customers in the aforementioned countries with an existing reservation for a Lucid Air can request an upgrade of their reservation to an Air Dream Edition P or Dream Edition R while available.”
Expected deliveries of the Dream Edition in Europe is slotted “to begin in late 2022,” the company said.
