Like most other businesses and car companies, Lucid was forced to freeze its activities during the lockdown. Good news for its employees, no one was laid off or furloughed. In fact, more than 160 new employees were hired in the last 90 days alone, and the goal is to add another 700 by the end of 2020. In the process, the company’s factory in Casa Grande, AZ is expanding in preparation for the anticipated Air sedan.
