Lucid Motors announced a long-term partnership with EV battery supplier LG Chem for its Lucid Air pure-electric sedan.

Full production of the Lucid Air is expected to start in late 2020 with LG Chem battery cells exclusively powering standard versions of the EV through 2023. The advanced battery cells provided by LG Chem effectively allow Lucid to lock in core volume production forecasts for the Lucid Air for the next several years, with additional agreements to be announced in the future for special versions of the EV.
