Lucid Motors and Rivian Owners Face Technical Glitches With Their New EV’s

With the soaring popularity of electric vehicles, challenges come hand in hand. Lucid Motors and Rivian EV owners have recently been experiencing a range of vehicle-related issues. But despite these setbacks, many consumers are still satisfied. The reports of challenges faced by various people provide insight into the transitional phase; these startups are passing through. The promise of a greener future and sustainable transportation seems to outweigh the obstacles along the way.

Lucid Motors Troubles

According to the complaints filed on the NHTSA website and other online forums, the electric vehicle (EV) startup, Lucid Motors, faced some issues with Lucid Air. Owners have experienced gear shifting issues, seat movement malfunctions, loss of motive power, drive system faults, charging glitches, and range issues. Complaints include instances of vehicles moving in the opposite direction of the selected gear and seats moving unexpectedly. 

Recently, a San Diego-based Lucid Air owner encountered a gear-shifting problem. Lucid Motors must refine its electric vehicles. Seat movement malfunctions cause inconvenience to the drivers and pose potential dangers. Loss of motive power and drive system faults lead to unexpected breakdowns. While charging glitches and range issues limit the vehicle’s usability.

The Lucid EVs warranty covers the following components:

  • Basic Vehicle: 48 Months/50,000 miles
  • Powertrain: 96 Months/100,000 miles
  • High-voltage battery: 96 Months /100,000 miles to 70% capacity
  • Corrosion protection: 120 Months/unlimited mileage
  • Body and paint defects: 48 Months/unlimited mileage
  • Supplemental Restraint System: 60 Months/60,000 miles

Rivian Challenges

Rivian, the EV Company backed by Ford, has garnered positive attention as it has a high number of satisfied buyers. However, owners have reported a few challenges with their vehicles. These issues include unexpected movement of Rivian RIT trucks while in the “parked” position on a downhill slope, sudden stops in traffic, quality problems with the roof glass, rattling passenger seats due to missing bolts, and a “vampire” battery drain problem. However, consumers have practiced brand loyalty. Rivian must resolve these issues to maintain customer satisfaction and provide a first-class driving experience.

Comparing to Tesla’s Journey

Lucid Motors and Rivian, two promising electric vehicle startups, are currently facing reported issues with their respective models: 

  • Lucid Air 
  • Rivian R1T trucks
  • Rivians R1S SUV

These challenges are reminiscent of the time when Tesla encountered similar challenges. Tesla resolved such issues over time. To establish themselves in the market, Lucid Motors and Rivian must address and resolve these issues properly. 

Bottom Line 

Lucid Motors and Rivian, two prominent electric vehicle startups, have recently faced reported issues with their vehicles. Lucid Air owners encountered several problems. Similarly, Rivian owners have experienced unexpected movement in the “parked position,” rattling seats, and battery drain problems. These conundrums raise concerns about the long-term success of the companies.
