Lucid Studios are engaging spaces, designed to start conversations and provide education about the performance and efficiency benchmarks possible in an electric vehicle.
The Washington Business Journal reported yesterday that Lucid plans to employ 40 people at each of the new studios. “The company currently employs more than 1,000 and plans to add 700 more by the end of the year when production at its new factory in Casa Grande, Arizona, ramps up,” WBJ noted.
