Lucid Motors announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Mr Peter Rawlinson as CEO, effective immediately. He will also retain his role as CTO. Since joining Lucid in 2013, Mr Rawlinson has held the position of Chief Technology Officer, being responsible for all design and engineering activities, including Lucid's first car, the all-electric Lucid Air luxury sedan. Prior to Lucid, Mr Rawlinson was Vice President of Vehicle Engineering and Chief Engineer of the Model S at Tesla. Prior to Tesla, he was Chief Engineer at Lotus Cars and Principal Engineer at Jaguar Cars.

Mr Rawlinson said "It is an honor to be appointed CEO of Lucid at such an exciting time for the company and the industry. While the convergence of new technologies is reshaping the automobile, the full potential has yet to be realized, inhibiting the pace at which sustainable mobility and energy are adopted. Lucid has the product vision, the core in-house technology, and the depth of talent to realize this potential. Working collaboratively, our outstanding team will create landmark future products, commencing with Lucid Air in 2020."

Former CEO and Lucid co-founder Sam Weng has retired, having held several key leadership roles throughout his eleven-year tenure with the company. Prior to Lucid, Weng held senior technical and commercial roles at Oracle, Redback Networks and Silicon Valley technology startups.
