Recall of Lucid Air vehicles targets defrosting issue affecting visibility

The recall was submitted to the NHTSA on January 10. Lucid expects that only 1 percent of the recalled vehicles will be affected by the issue. The HVCH systems, supplied by Webasto AG, have been analyzed and it has been determined that early build versions could have failures. These failures pose a safety risk as they can obstruct the driver’s vision. Lucid has identified 25 HVCH delamination failures out of a total of 5,283 HVCH units manufactured before July 2022.

The remedy for this issue will require two steps. The first step is an Over-the-Air update that will identify any HVCH failure in the vehicles. When a failure is detected, the vehicle will display an alert to the driver, instructing them to contact Lucid for service. Lucid Service will replace the HVCH unit free of charge to the owner. The recall affects the 2022 and 2023 Model Year Lucid Air vehicles.

In November, Lucid reduced its delivery guidance to align with its production capacity and successfully achieved that goal. However, the number of vehicles built and delivered, which were 8,428 and 6,001 respectively, fell short of expectations. In the quarter, Lucid delivered 1,734 vehicles, which is a 10 percent decrease compared to the same quarter in the previous year.
