An initial group of customers have been invited to the company's California headquarters where they will pick up their cars during the company's Dream Delivery event.
"Upon receipt of their cars, these initial customers will embark upon the inaugural Lucid Rally, hosted by members of the company’s leadership team on a route that showcases the vehicle’s standout ride, handling, and performance capabilities, before departing in their personally-configured Lucid Air Dream Edition, reflecting their preference of Range or Performance models," the automaker said in a statement Friday.
A Lucid Motors spokesperson could not disclose how many people have been invited to the Dream Delivery event.
