Lucid Motors (NASDAQ:LCID) stock is on the rise Wednesday as the electric vehicle (EV) company’s shares climb back from a recent dip.

The big news boosting LCID stock higher today is a $1 billion revolving credit facility. This gives the company access to the funding it needs to further expand its business. It’s also worth mentioning that Lucid Motors had $5.4 billion cash on hand at the end of Q1. The company expects this to cover its costs well into 2023.

Shares of LCID took a beating at the start of the week following comments from Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk. This had Musk claiming that Lucid Motors and Rivian Automotive (NASDAQ:RIVN) are on their way to bankruptcy.

Here’s what else the Tesla CEO said about the two EV companies, according to InsideEVs.

“I hope they can do something, but unless they can cut their cost dramatically, they are in deep trouble and will end up in the car cemetery like every other with the exception of Tesla and Ford.”

As far as trading volume goes, LCID isn’t seeing much movement today. As of this writing, only about 9 million shares have changed hands. That’s less than half its daily average trading volume of 22.5 million shares.

LCID stock is up 2.7% as of Wednesday afternoon. However, the stock is still down 58.4% year-to-date.
