Wilson Electric's Tucson Industrial Division recently completed the fast-track Lucid Motors project in Casa Grande, AZ. The facility spans approximately 590 acres. Lucid is launching with a production capacity of 30,000 vehicles, but already has plans to scale that up to 400,000 vehicles through a series of expansions that go until 2028.
Lucid Motors Casa Grande factory was completed in December 2020 and is commissioning the equipment to begin manufacturing tens of thousands of electric vehicles starting in Arizona this spring. The project which began in December 2019 includes 1 million square feet and the factory was built with expansion in mind, and the company says it will expand and produce a Lucid SUV in 2023, which it is referring to as Project Gravity.
Four expansion phases are planned at the factory through 2028, with the square footage growing from nearly 1 million square feet today to more than 5 million square feet, and a final capacity of 400,000 cars a year.
