The first phase of construction has been completed at Lucid Motors’ new electric vehicle plant in Casa Grande, south of Phoenix, and company officials say they’re on track to begin production there in early 2021.

The Newark, California-based company said the Lucid AMP-1, or advanced manufacturing plant, is the first greenfield, dedicated electric vehicle factory to be built in North America.

With the 999,000-square-foot first phase finished, Lucid is now working to put equipment and processes in place to begin producing the Lucid Air luxury electric sedan.

Lucid has said it expects an estimated $32 billion revenue impact for Casa Grande and Pinal County over a 20-year period.
