Melissa Avitia, also a Manufacturing Business Coordinator at Lucid Motors, said on company growth that its, “To build the best quality vehicle, with the best people, which we are finding here in Arizona.” She added, “It’s been a beautiful thing to watch and witness the growth in Casa Grande.” 

Lucid Motors chose Casa Grande after evaluating 13 other states for factory sites. According to their website, Lucid Motors chose Arizona “upon numerous positive factors, including business climate, infrastructure, talent, geographic location, and the automotive supply chain in the Arizona-Sonora region.”

Lucid Motors isn’t slowing down its relationship with Arizona anytime soon. A second factory expansion providing for an additional 2.4 million square feet is underway, with two further expansions planned through 2028.
