According to an email to consumers reviewed, Lucid Group Inc.’s debut luxury electric car is missing promised driver-assistance features for the initial customers, who will have to wait for them to be remotely supplied later this month.
The DreamDrive advanced driver-assistance technology would be standard on every unit of a limited-edition “Dream Edition” Air Sedan, which costs $169,000, according to the Newark, California-based business. However, several of the first owners who received their cars reported that they were not fully working.
According to the message received by Lucid Chief Executive Officer Peter Rawlinson, the ADAS features being activated through over-the-air update include automatic emergency braking, lane departure protection, and traffic-sign recognition.
Lucid declined to comment.
