Based on what I've read and heard the CEO say, that's all pre-production activity. They are a couple months from having an actual production vehicle come off the line, although my understanding is that at this point, they are fine tuning the process and vehicle software and not the physical components, so anything that comes off now is theoretically mechanically identical to a production vehicle.I did see that video and wasnt sure if that is a production run/pre-prod etc. I dont think they have any EPA ratings yet or crash ratings yet officially published though I know it was in the works at least last year.
I think both Rivian and Lucid might be in the same position in terms of production and cars its just Rivian is playing close to the heart but Lucid has the potential to over promise and under deliver.
By the end of this quarter, Lucid should have a legal obligation to provide accurate information and exact commitments, which makes them less likely to over promise. Rivian can say June deliveries straight through July without delivering a vehicle. If Lucid pulls that once they're public, they'll be in trouble.
Personally, I don't think either company is doing that...
