LG Display is expected to supply a 30-inch range OLED panel to electric car maker Lucid, TheElec has learned.
The supply timeline has been delayed due to Lucid’s financial difficulty but LG Display is expected to start producing the panels in the fourth quarter, sources said.
The OLED panel Lucid plans to use its two stack tandem model where there are two layers of red, green and blue emission layers.
Existing Lucid electric car models currently use 34-inch liquid crystal displays.
LG Display already supplies its panels to various automakers. In 2021, it supplied the OLED and LCD panels used in the EQS sedan launched by Mercedes-Benz that year.
The South Korean panel maker is also developing OLED panels with Porsche and other premium car brands.
Meanwhile, the world’s largest electric car maker Tesla currently only uses LCD panels on its cars.
Meanwhile, LG Energy Solution is the exclusive supplier of cylinder batteries to Lucid.
Parent company LG Chem signed the contract with the car maker in 2020 and the deal will last until this year.
