Lucid is expanding its lineup once more, with plans to launch a dedicated security vehicle that will initially serve with the Saudi Arabian police force.
Lucid has strong ties to Saudi Arabia, with the kingdom’s sovereign wealth fund owning a more than 60% stake in the luxury automaker. Lucid also recently opened a new manufacturing facility in Saudi Arabia, AMP-2, which currently re-assembles Air sedans that were pre-built at AMP-1 in Casa Grande, Arizona.
The ties also extend to a large purchase contract, with the Saudi Arabian government agreeing to purchase up to 100,000 Air sedans over a ten year period.
Now the Lucid Air will also be joining the kingdom’s police force. While Lucid has not officially announced the project yet, the company will unveil its police car at the World Defense Show, being held in the capital city of Riyadh starting on February 4.
The Lucid police car has already been set up at the show, with some pictures and videos of it covered in plastic to protect it from dust being shared on X (formerly Twitter), showing it has the classic black and white paint scheme.
While the official debut will take place next week, Saudi Arabia has already been using the Lucid police car, as it was spotted among the King’s motorcade last week.
