Some Lucid Air EVs are being Recalled due to Improper Instrument Display Wiring, according to Lucid Motors

1117 automobiles are included in the recall.

A defective wire harness attached to the instrument panel has prompted Lucid Motors to issue a recall notice for several of its luxury electric sedans. The recall affects 1,117 Lucid Air sedans from the model year 2022, in all trim levels. Lucid Insider, an EV corporate blog, was the first to report the recall.

A representative for the recall noted in an email that the “wired data link to the instrument panel may not have been secured properly during assembly.” “Lucid is not aware of any cases in which these components have failed in a vehicle or caused an interruption in the instrument display panel,” says the company.

Coming into contact with the steering column could harm the extra-long wiring harness, which houses the ethernet cable for the centre and left driver displays. According to the business, damaged wiring could result in “possible loss of data communications to the displays.” “An interruption in communication at these screens could cause the speedometer, gear selection indicators, telltales, and other in-vehicle notifications to stop updating.”

The number of vehicles being recalled appears to be greater than the number of vehicles Lucid has delivered to its customers. The company stated it delivered 125 automobiles to customers by the end of the year in its fourth quarter 2021 results report. Lucid claimed it sent 360 vehicles to consumers in its most recent first quarter 2022 report.

Lucid claimed in a notice to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it set a “clean point” for its manufacture on May 4, 2022, after which it is confident that any “extra harness length” has been secured so that the instrument panel’s operation is not hampered. The business stated that “all Lucid vehicles made before to the clean point are likely compromised.” The company is currently ordering new wiring harnesses that are not overly long.

The recall is Lucid’s second. The first, released in February, intended to remedy a potential suspension issue caused by “improper assembly by a supplier,” according to the automaker.

Due to supply chain issues and other disruptions caused by the COVID-19 epidemic, Lucid has struggled to get cars off the assembly line. The Newark, California-based company stated last quarter that it was lowering its annual production forecast from 20,000 to 12,000 automobiles.
