At Lucid, we’re creating a future where doing great things goes hand-in-hand with doing the right thing. That includes forging a new set of ideals for a post-luxury era rooted in fundamental values such as sustainable transportation. We were born in California — where abundant nature and high technology meet— and we’re pushing ahead with EV innovation that makes the most responsible use of the earth’s resources.
Driven by a commitment to sustainability
The theme of sustainability informs every aspect of Lucid’s activities as an automaker. In the Lucid Air, we are building the most efficient EV ever made. We seek materials from the most responsible suppliers — with a focus on sustainable standards and the potential for recyclability. And our factory is the first purpose-built EV facility in North America — designed expressly for our needs.
Going the extra mile — and then some
We’re not simply building zero-emission cars that can be powered by renewable energy sources — we have an unwavering commitment to making the best use of those resources. As we develop our vehicles and their powertrains, they must be as efficient as possible in every possible way. That is why the Lucid Air has the highest range efficiency per mile of any EV on the market. This priority isn’t the industry norm. the Lucid Air’s range efficiency exceeds that of any competition — often by a significant margin. And with every extra mile we can extract from a kWh of energy, we’re actively helping to reduce the human footprint on our planet with fewer total emissions during a vehicle’s lifetime.
Made with the earth in mind
Lucid works closely with suppliers to ensure interior materials are luxurious as well as environmentally and socially responsible. Sustainably harvested wood options include eucalyptus, walnut, and red oak. Textile options include an alpaca wool blend that requires minimal dye and recycled yarn processed with an advanced air-texturing process. Additionally, we maintain a supplier code of conduct to set expectations for governance and responsibility in areas such as anti-corruption, business ethics, human rights, health and safety, and environmental stewardship.
Sustainability from the source
Bridge of Weir is famed for its high-quality leather, but Lucid also chose this Scottish supplier because it can claim the lowest carbon footprint of any leather-maker in the world. It has achieved this distinction — and environmental awards — by making significant investments in the circular manufacturing of leather, including a thermal energy plant that converts process waste into energy, and an ultrafiltration plant that recycles 40 percent of the water used in Bridge of Weir’s leather production.
Our factory in Casa Grande, Arizona, is the first greenfield EV factory in North America, and it was designed to minimize carbon emissions where practical through energy efficient design and plans for renewable energy generation on-site. We strive to reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing while maintaining our relentless drive to produce high-quality vehicles for our customers. We currently have a 1 mega-watt (MW) capacity solar power system in Arizona (with a total capacity of 2 MW across all sites) and we are actively working to increase usage of renewable energy. Our operations pair with an environmental, health and safety policy that encompasses training, measurement and monitoring of data, and corrective actions for continuous improvement. Additionally, to emphasize our focus on quality, environment and occupational health and safety, our Arizona factory has been ISO 9001, 45001 and 14001 certified, a globally recognized Quality Management System (QMS), Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OH&S MS) and Environmental Management System (EMS) respectively.
Inspiring the next generation of engineers, artists, and advocates
Our proprietary technology is setting new benchmarks for performance, efficiency, and range. We hope to inspire the next generation of engineers as they advance EV technology — and continue our mission of designing and building luxury electric vehicles with a deep respect for nature. And this is only the beginning of our mission to help create a better way forward. It’s why we believe fully in Dream Ahead.
