Lucid Factory Will Be Built In Casa Grande, Arizona
The company considered 60 markets in 13 states before selecting Casa Grande. Company officials were reluctant to name the other finalists but a report in the Sacramento Business Journal said California’s capitol city was the runner-up for the Lucid factory. The company has declined to confirm or deny that report. Key factors that tipped the balance in favor of Casa Grande included the availability of a 500 acre, shovel ready site with heavy rail access, the skill level of the workers available in the immediate aria, and Arizona’s quality of life. In addition to rail access, Casa Grande also is located close to several interstate highways.
