Bear's Workshop is back with his 160th flyover of the Lucid AMP-1 factory in Casa Grande, AZ, giving us a valuable look at construction progress and the number of Lucid Airs being built.
In the two weeks since Bear's last flyover Lucid AMP-1 has continued to grow with new walls installed to close in some of the buildings under construction.
The video starts with a thick fog blanketing the factory and construction sites so the drone has to stay at a relatively low altitude. We can see a pair of the ever-present car haulers picking up more Lucid Airs for shipping as well as a great number of examples of the record-breaking electric sedan parked in outdoor lots.
The site is a hive of construction activity, with equipment and significant amounts of materials scatted throughout. Temporary roads wind through the site, while large areas that have already been graded are roped off awaiting imminent construction.
Lucid Lots Filling Up
Perhaps the most striking thing about the latest flyover is the number of finished (or close to finished) Lucid Airs parked around the site. There are some examples of the Lucid Air Pure, which can be identified by its having a metal body colored roof, but most appear to be Grand Tourings and Tourings.
There's also a lot with what Bear estimates to be around 1400 Lucid Airs in another location on the site. These have been there for some time, assuming the stock hasn't been rotated in or out. Some of Bear's viewers speculate that these cars are part of the 100,000 unit deal with the Saudi government though the man himself is less sure. Maybe these vehicles are awaiting some kind of missing part, or maybe they feature some kind of manufacturing defect and can't be shipped out. Future flyovers will tell if they stay there longer or head out on a car hauler.
A Clearer Picture
Some time later the fog lifts giving way to a sunny Arizona day and we can see the rest of the factory in sharp focus. There's the ongoing addition to the building featured in the very first press photos of AMP-1 as well as more finished Airs here and there plus plenty of empty parking lots with more under construction. How quickly Lucid fills the spaces remains to be seen.
