Due to safety concerns, Lucid recalls about 200 cars!
Lucid Group Inc., a premium electric vehicle manufacturer, is recalling around 200 electric vehicles owing to a safety issue that might lead to more crashes.
According to a Lucid Air communication to customers, a component on the front strut dampers may have been placed wrongly owing to a supplier error. Customers were warned that “this situation may result in an abrupt loss of ground clearance, vehicle vibration, and front brake line damage, increasing the danger of an accident,” according to Lucid of Newark, California.
Owners of the autos were given free inspections and repairs by the carmaker.
The carmaker stated in a statement that the recall was launched, but that it is unaware of any strut damper failures in its vehicles. The recall covers 203 Air sedans, although the firm estimates that just approximately 1% of them had the wrong item fitted.
Lucid, which went public in July after merging with a blank-check company, is considered as a possible rival to market leader Tesla Inc. Peter Rawlinson, the company’s CEO, served as chief engineer on Tesla’s Model S. After delays due to quality concerns, the automaker began production of the Air sedan in September, although only a few numbers of the high-spec $169,000 variants have been delivered to yet.
