Why Lucid Group Stock Is Surging Higher ?

Lucid confirmed that it’s still on track to build 20,000 vehicles next year.

Shares of electric vehicle maker Lucid Group (NASDAQ:LCID) were moving sharply higher on Tuesday, after the company reported third-quarter earnings and confirmed its production plans for next year.

As of 12:45 p.m. EST, Lucid’s shares were up about 17.7% from Monday’s closing price.

Lucid reported on Monday afternoon that it lost $524.4 million in the third quarter, or $0.43 per share, on revenue of $232,000 as it prepared to start production of its innovative Air luxury sedan.

Those numbers fell short of Wall Street’s expectations, as analysts polled by Thomson Reuters had expected a loss of $0.25 per share on revenue of $1.25 million. But electric vehicle investors didn’t seem concerned about the “miss,” in light of what was arguably much more important news: Lucid confirmed its plans to build about 20,000 vehicles next year.

2022 Lucid Air First Drive

Lucid Motors passes Ford’s market cap four years after it nearly got bought

Four years after Ford was reportedly considering buying Lucid Motors, the EV startup is now worth more than the Detroit automaker. Lucid Motors’ market capitalization passed Ford’s on Tuesday, one day after the startup reported its first quarterly financial results as a publicly traded company and just a few weeks after it started shipping its luxury electric sedan, the Air.

Lucid Motors has a comparatively long history for an EV startup as it was founded in 2007 as a battery company called Atieva. But after a 2016 pivot to making an electric sedan, Lucid Motors found itself running out of money at a time when others were starting to take off. One of the options it turned to was a potential Ford acquisition. From a July 2017 report in Recode:

Lucid began its fourth round of institutional fundraising earlier this year, with the help of investment bank Morgan Stanley. Ford’s acquisition offer came as a surprise, said a source close to Lucid: “The bank approached Ford to see if they wanted to participate in the Series D. They came back and said they wanted to acquire.”

That never happened, though, and Lucid Motors ultimately treaded water until striking a massive deal with Saudi Arabia, which now owns a majority of the startup. Ford, for its part, was able to work out a pretty sizable investment of its own into Rivian — a deal it swiped out from under rival General Motors.

Lucid Air named MotorTrend Car of the Year

The Lucid Air, the first model from California-based electric car start-up company Lucid Motors, has been named MotorTrend’s 2022 Car of the Year.
It’s the first time any automaker has won the award with its first car. MotorTrend’s panel of judges lauded the Lucid Air for its extraordinary range and efficiency — some versions can go up to 520 miles on a single charge — as well as its performance and luxurious interior.
In its announcement, MotorTrend called the Air “the new [electric vehicle] benchmark.” The Air’s electric motors were developed by Lucid itself. With no space taken up by a gasoline engine, the Air has a large cabin area with ample storage space in the trunk as well as under the hood.

While the judges generally liked the Air’s interior design, they did criticize what they saw as an over-reliance on touch screens for many basic controls. The judges praised the car’s Lucid-designed stereo-system.

Lucid Motors CEO says the EV start-up hopes to build plants in the Middle East and China.

Lucid Motors CEO Peter Rawlinson, who also serves as the EV start-ups chief technology officer, appeared on Tuesday’s episode of “Mad Money.”
