According to the regulator's report, the display wiring harness may not be attached correctly, which could lead to its failure. These vehicles do not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards Section #101, Controls and Displays.
Since the Air displays provide important information to the driver, including speed, mileage, shift indicators and warning systems, this defect can lead to an accident. According to Lucid Insiders, the company has changed the glass canopy of new cars to prevent possible problems due to loose wires.
The recall applies to all Air Dream Edition and Grand Touring models released in 2022. The distribution of official notices is scheduled for June 20. NHTSA said Lucid dealers will inspect the vehicles and fix the wiring harness free of charge if necessary. This will be the second vehicle recall in the company's short history. The first recall, announced in February 2022, was related to a suspension defect.
Earlier this week, Lucid held a signing ceremony for a February 2022 agreement with Saudi Arabian organizations to build a factory in the country with a production capacity of 155,000 electric vehicles per year. As part of the agreement, Lucid is expected to receive $3.4 billion in funding over the next 15 years.
