Luxury electric vehicle (EV) maker Lucid has issued a recall covering what is likely every singe Lucid Air sedan built to date over issues with the car’s wiring harness.

According to the official recall notice posted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website, the issue involves wiring that connects the vehicle’s two displays potentially becoming damaged over time.

“Lucid has determined that on certain 2022 Lucid Air models the harness containing the ethernet wiring for the center and left driver displays may not be secured properly. This could result in chafing of the harness due to contact with the steering intermediate shaft. Damage to the harness could lead to a potential loss of data communications to the displays.”

If damage occurs, Lucid says critical information such as the vehicle’s speed, gear selection, turn signals, and other notifications would not be displayed, and would therefore be in violation of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS).

The notice states 1,117 vehicles are covered under the recall. According to Lucid’s Q4 2021 and Q1 2022 reports, the company had delivered 125 cars in all of 2021, and another 360 in Q1 2022, meaning this recall likely covers every single Lucid Air sedan built to date.

This is the second recall for the Air. In February the automaker recalled over 200 vehicles for strut dampers that may not have been installed correctly due to an error by the supplier.
