Lucid Q2 2023 Earnings: Strong EV production and revenue growth lead to share price rise

Lucid Q2 2023 Earnings

Lucid Group Q2 2023: Key Highlights

  • Aston Martin selected Lucid to supply powertrain and battery system technology – contracts worth in excess of $450 million
  • $6.25 billion in total liquidity as of June 30, 2023
  • The start of production for the Lucid Air Sapphire and the Lucid Air Pure Rear Wheel Drive is on track for mid-September this year

Lucid Group’s stock was up 3.9% in after-market hours on Monday, Aug 7, 2023, and jumped about 3% in early trading on Aug 8, 2023, amid substantial production numbers, however, a miss in EV’s deliveries and weaker-than-expected earnings from wall street estimates limited further upside. 

The U.S. electric vehicle market is growing, but not fast enough. Rising inventories and price-cutting could represent only a short-term pause in EV market growth, but they could be signals that boost the U.S. 

EV sales above the current 7% market share level will be more costly and difficult than expected. Further, due to price wars, there is increasing competition in the EV segment. In fact, Lucid has reportedly cut prices on its Air electric sedan by as much as $12,400 as part of a limited-time offer, which aims to challenge Tesla in the EV price war.
