In our previous story, we’ve mentioned the luxury electric car maker Lucid Motors’ decision to open its new flagship studio in New York. Lucid Motor’s Spokesperson told Fossbytes about the opening going to happen this week, and the automaker has cut the ribbons of its first flagship studio in the Northeast, US.

It was a formal inauguration, and for the public, the studio will officially open from today (26th June 2021).

The flagship Lucid Studio is located in the Meatpacking District of New York (2 Ninth Ave. New York, NY 10014). It’ll allow the visitors to get up close and personal with the Lucid Air luxury EV. Also, the visitors can experience and learn more about the full line-up of Lucid Air.

Peter Rawlinson, the CTO and CEO of the company, said, “Opening a Lucid Studio in New York, one of the most vibrant cities in the world, allows us to demonstrate how Lucid Air and its groundbreaking technology perfectly complement the fast pace and refined taste of the Big Apple.”

He also said that it’s the perfect time to open the studio in a city like New York. Peter believes Lucid will significantly contribute to a city like New York in delivering the world’s greatest experience to travelers and residents.

The Manhattan Studio in New York is the first to open in Northeast America and eight Lucid Motors Studio since the last year.

Lucid plans to open 11 more studios throughout North America by the end of 2021. According to Lucid Motors, there’ll be 20 showrooms and service centers in Phoenix, Long Island, Boston, Vancouver, Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, and the D.C. Metro.

It’s good that Lucid is sharing its plans of opening studios and service centers. However, what masses eagerly waiting for is to get their hands on Lucid Air for real.
