Introduction to Tesla, Lucid and EV delivery issues
In recent years, electric vehicles (EVs) have been advertised as the new, environmentally-friendly way to get around. However, many new EV owners have been disappointed with the quality of their car’s paint and trim straight from the factory. Why do EVs have such low-quality production of cars?
One reason may be that electric car manufacturing is still relatively new. Many of the companies that are making EVs are start-ups that don’t have a lot of experience in mass production. This inexperience can lead to problems with quality control during the manufacturing process. We didn’t notice the common paint issues in our 2021 Accord 2.0 t review , so can’t figure out why these other guys can’t get their manufacturing together.
Another reason for poor paint and trim quality on EVs may be that these cars often use recycled or lower-quality materials to keep costs down. For example, recycled plastic is often used for interior trim pieces because it’s cheaper than new plastic. Find out about some of the common issues that have become common day occurrences with Teslas and now seem to be popping up with Lucids Air.
What can go wrong with Teslas on deliveries?
Common issue #1: Damaged cars
One of the most common issues that come when teslas are delivered is damaged cars. Tesla offers its vehicles all over the world, and some of them are damaged during shipping. This can be a big problem for customers waiting for their cars to be repaired.
Tesla has a team of workers who inspect the cars before they are delivered, but sometimes the damage is not discovered until after the vehicle has been delivered. This can be very frustrating for customers expecting to get their new car in perfect condition.
Damage to a Tesla car can range from minor scratches to major dents and paint damage, and some customers have even reported receiving cars with missing parts. If you have ordered a Tesla and your vehicle arrives damaged, it is vital to contact Tesla customer service immediately so they can help you resolve the issue.
Common issue #2: Late deliveries
When Tesla first began delivering cars, they were often late. This was a common issue that led to many complaints. Tesla has since changed their production process and now offers most vehicles on time. However, there are still some occasional delays.
Tesla has made great strides in recent years to improve its delivery times. In the past, cars were often delivered weeks or even months late, making many customers unhappy with their purchases. Tesla has since changed their production process and now offers most vehicles on time.
However, there are still some occasional delays. Some customers have reported waiting several weeks for their car, only to be told it will be another few weeks before it arrives. While Tesla has made significant improvements, they still have to work to ensure all customers receive their cars promptly.
Common issue #3: Missing features
When a Tesla is delivered, there are a few common issues that can occur. One problem is that some features may be missing from the car. This can be frustrating for customers who were expecting to have those features in their new Tesla. Another common issue is that the vehicle may have some cosmetic damage. This can include scratches on the paint or dents in the body. Finally, another problem is that the car may not be charged fully. This can mean that the customer has to wait longer to use their new Tesla.
So why do people love Teslas?
Despite some common issues when Teslas are delivered, the cars are still in high demand. Common problems include paint defects, body panel gaps, and alignment issues. However, these issues do not outweigh the benefits of owning a Tesla car or the perceived benefits. They are similar to Apple, where there might be better options on the market with lower prices and better features… but it just isn’t an Apple. People call it Fanboying or just loving a brand, and there is no issue with that. But sometimes you have to wonder if buying a car that is usually over $65,000 and delivered with super thin paint, scratches, and defects is worth it and can be overlooked due to the brand’s love.
Are Tesla defects happening to Lucid cars?
While Lucid has only recently started to roll out cars, there have been complaints that the finish isn’t where it should be when looking at the premium price tag that comes with the vehicles. There was a great write-up about how thin some of the light paint was on NEW Lucids and other issues, which we will outline here.
Lucid Turtle of DOOM
We had no clue what this referenced, but for some reason, Bowser from Super Mario popped into our head. But this isn’t a funny thing at all, especially when your car is over $150,000. So it seems like this is an issue that just kind of starts happening, and it sounds like generic tech shooting to resolve. Restart, turn off, turn on, and hope it fixes itself. All I can say is that I would not be happy to have a car impacted by the Turtle of DOOM, no matter how cool that sounds.
List of Lucid issues
Here is a quick video of someone who took an initial walk around with their BRAND NEW Lucid, and you can quickly see issues that just shouldn’t be there:
Issue #1: Delays in delivery.
Anyone who’s ever ordered a new car knows there’s always the chance of delays. But those delays can be even more frustrating when it comes to Lucid Air, given the long wait times and high price tag.
According to Lucid Motors, the average delivery time for the Air is 4-6 months. However, many customers have reported much longer wait times, with some remaining over a year for their car. And given that the Air starts at $60,000, that’s a lot of money to be tied up in a car that’s not even delivered yet.
Fortunately, there are some things you can do to help ensure your Lucid Air is delivered as soon as possible. First and foremost, make sure you’re on the list for production by placing your order as quickly as possible.
Issue #2: Cars being delivered with defects.
In the second issue of Lucid Airs being delivered with defects, it was found that many cars had issues with their paint job. It was also reported that there were problems with the car’s audio system and that the seats were uncomfortable. In addition, it was noted that the vehicles were often delivered late and that customer service was unresponsive. Despite these issues, many people still love their Lucid Air and find it a great car.
Issue #3: Customers not being satisfied with their purchase.
When it comes to Lucid Airs, one of the most common issues is that customers are unsatisfied with their purchase. There are a few reasons for this, but the most common one is that the car doesn’t live up to the hype. Another reason is that the customer service isn’t excellent, and there have been a few reports of vehicles being delivered late or damaged.
While these issues are a cause for concern, it’s important to remember that Lucid Air is still a new company and is working out the kinks. The good news is that they seem to be committed to making things right, and we’re hopeful that future issues will be resolved.
Conclusion: Sum up the main points of the article and leave the reader with something to think about.
A few issues have come to light as Lucid Motors prepares to deliver its much-anticipated Lucid Air electric sedan:
- The car is not yet ready for mass production, with only a handful of vehicles produced so far.
- There are concerns about the quality of the cars being made, with some early reports suggesting that they are not up to the high standards that Lucid has promised.
- There are questions about the company’s ability to ramp up production to meet demand, as they have yet to produce many cars.
Despite these issues, Lucid remains confident in its product and is moving forward with deliveries. They believe that these early issues will be resolved quickly and that Lucid Air will be a game-changing electric.
The thing that many people overlook is how hard it is to actually make a high quality product with little experience. GM, Ford, and other companies have been making millions of cars over the past 50 years, while these new EV manufacturers have barely put out a million between them all. I hope that as time , and production volume, ramp up so too does their quality. But if things stay the same as they are, with prices continuing to increase, there could be some serious issues as the price just won’t justify the product customers are getting. We can tell you that these vintage mustangs did arrive with some issues, but they’ve had years and millions of sales to optimize their processes.
