Latest SPAC News:  Lucid recalls EV sedans due to safety defect, Phunware sued by angel investors, and Gogoro manufactures one-millionth battery

Lucid Is Recalling About 200 High-End EV Sedans Due to a Safety Defect

Lucid Group Inc.(NASDAQ:LCID), a maker of luxury electric vehicles, is recalling about 200 cars due to a safety defect that could increase the likelihood of collisions.

A piece on the Lucid Air’s front strut dampers may have been installed incorrectly due to an error by a supplier, the company said in an email to customers that was seen by Bloomberg. “This condition may result in a sudden loss of ground clearance, vehicle vibration and front brake line damage, increasing the risk of a crash,” Newark, California-based Lucid told customers.

The lawsuit, filed Feb. 18 by more than dozen individual stockholders and investment firms, targets the mobile marketing and cryptocurrency services company, along with current and former members of its board and senior management.
