CASA GRANDE, AZ (AP) — Crews have started moving earth at the Arizona site planned for an electric car plant.

Lucid Motors tells the Casa Grande Dispatch that grading work in preparation for construction began Wednesday at the Casa Grande site.

Casa Grande City Manager Larry Rains says the city has issued at-risk grading permit for the company.

David Salguero of Lucid Motors says the plant is on track to begin production of the Lucid Air electric car by late 2020.

The company based in Newark, California announced in November 2016 that it planned for the plant to be operational by 2018. The goal was later pushed back to December 2020.

Casa Grande is about 45 miles (72 kilometers) south of Phoenix.
