Lucid Motors (LCID) gears to make its first earnings report since it started Lucid Air electric-car deliveries in late October.
The white-hot EV stock and emerging Tesla (TSLA) rival may offer an update on Lucid Air deliveries. It may also update investors on production and delivery targets, with new competitor Rivian Automotive (RIVN) on its heels.
Estimates: Late Monday, Wall Street expects Lucid Motors to lose 25 cents a share on nominal revenue, according to FactSet. No year-ago estimates are available.
Lucid stock debuted in late July after a reverse merger with a blank-check company. Four analysts cover the new EV stock, FactSet says.
Lucid Air deliveries began on October 30, so that won’t show up in the September-ended quarter.

Lucid Stock, EV Stocks
Shares of Lucid Motors lost 2.3% to 43.93 on the stock market today, after setting a fresh intraday high Tuesday. Lucid stock is far extended from a 28.49 buy point off a cup-with-handle base, according to MarketSmith chart analysis. That means shares are not in buy range.
Saudi Arabia-backed Lucid plans to deliver 520 Lucid Air Dream sedans, costing $169,000. Cheaper versions will follow.
In 2022, Lucid Motors expects to produce 20,000 Lucid Air sedans, generating more than $2.2 billion in revenue.
In the past month, Lucid Motors went on a tear after starting deliveries. The Lucid Air, its first electric vehicle, is built with proprietary technology.
Deliveries mark a milestone moment for a startup. Many EV startups fail to live up to initial hype.
Startup peer Rivian Automotive also began selling its first EV, the R1T electric truck, ahead of the blockbuster Rivian IPO.
In September, the Lucid Air Dream was officially confirmed as the longest-range electric car ever. It delivers 520 miles on a single charge.
Longer electric driving range is key to the adoption of electric cars.
