Peter Rawlinson is the Chief Technology Officer of Lucid, where he is responsible for the creation and delivery of all Lucid’s products. He brings over 30 years of vehicle engineering experience to bear in this role.
Formerly Vice President of Vehicle Engineering at Tesla and Chief Engineer of the Model S, Peter led the engineering of the Model S from a clean sheet to production readiness while building the engineering team.
Peter is a proponent of a highly integrated simultaneous engineering methodology. This places strong emphasis upon CAE simulation, including multi-physics, linked to elegant CAD design. This philosophy maximizes comprehension and fidelity of product intent in a virtual world, minimizing the development effort, time, and cost of testing physical prototypes.
A graduate of Imperial College, University of London, Peter was formerly Head of Vehicle Engineering at Corus Automotive, Chief Engineer at Lotus Cars, and Principal Engineer at Jaguar Cars.
