Lucid Group has announced its third retail location in Europe will open on 16th December in Hilversum, Netherlands, just outside Amsterdam.  

The opening occurs one week after Lucid’s first vehicle, Lucid Air, earned the highest possible rating of five stars in the rigorous Euro NCAP crash testing process, said the press release. 

Lucid Motors is aiming to expand its physical presence in the region by opening its third retail location and first service, delivery, and sales center in Europe, located in Hilversum just outside of Amsterdam.  

The 2,232-square-meter luxury retail and service space located at the Bussumergrintweg 12 in Hilversum will provide comprehensive sales and service support to Dutch customers. Additional Lucid locations are scheduled to be opened in 2023 in key European markets. 

“The Netherlands is a key market for Lucid because of its high adoption of EVs and very mature charging infrastructure,” said Eric Bach, Senior Vice President of Product and Chief Engineer, Lucid Group. “With industry-leading range and charging efficiency combined with its elegantly aerodynamic exterior design and spacious, luxurious interior, Lucid Air offers Dutch customers something truly unique, which is reflected in the design of the Studio space in Hilversum.” 

In the NCAP assessment, the company has said that Lucid Air achieved a full five stars for each category, making it one of the safest electric vehicles in the executive class. 

Bach also commented: “Safety has been a top priority from the outset at Lucid and achieving five stars in Euro NCAP will give owners further confidence in their Lucid Air. This is a fantastic result that was fully expected given the comprehensive engineering process for Lucid Air, but it’s important to note that passive safety is only part of the overall safety story. With an available 32-sensor suite in DreamDrive Pro, we also offer one of the industry’s most comprehensive active safety systems.”
