The Lucid Air Dream sedan is facing its second safety recall, with more than 1100 cars potentially being affected.
Lucid Motors sent emails to several customers who have taken delivery of Air EVs about a new recall specific to the wiring harness for the Glass Cockpit instrument panel. The company says the harness may have not have been properly secured at the factory.
“The harness can become damaged by rubbing against another part of the vehicle, and disable the display screens,” read the email, as reported by Lucid Insider. “Disabled display screens will not show critical information, such as speed, gear selection indicators, warning lights, and other in-vehicle notifications, which can increase the risk of a crash.”
The recall appears to impact both the Dream Edition and Grand Touring Air models, but how many were actually impacted is hard to know. The official NHTSA website says that the potential number of units affected is over 1,100.
The company is asking those affected to call have their cars inspected and, if necessary, have the harness properly secured or replaced under warranty. In an email, the company asked customers to, “please reach out to a Lucid Service Center or contact Customer Care at 888-99-LUCID or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule time to have your Lucid Air inspected as soon as possible. We apologize for this inconvenience and assure you that any inspection and remedy (if necessary) will be performed at NO CHARGE to you. Please contact a Lucid Service Center or Customer Care to schedule an appointment to have the vehicle inspected as soon as possible.”
The company did send an official statement to media, which reads, “For Lucid, the safety of our customers and their families is the highest priority. Lucid is recalling certain model year 2022 Air vehicles because of the possibility that the wiring connection to the instrument panel may not have been secured properly during assembly. The recall applies to 1,117 vehicles that have been delivered to customers, and it is estimated that the defect is present on 1% of cars. Lucid is not aware of any instances when these components have failed in a vehicle or caused an interruption to the instrument display panel.”
