Though the GMC Hummer EV has been out for some time, its popularity has not faded. Instead, it seems that it’s quite the opposite. The brand has confirmed that reservations are continuing to climb, with a total of 90,000 hand-raisers putting down a $100 deposit for the six-figure electric truck and SUV family. Though that’s an impressive number, what’s more, is that people are following through on orders.
GMC Hummer EV: Reservation Details
In addition, people making Hummer reservations are following through on purchases, with just over 90% of reservation holders converting their reservations to actual orders. He also mentioned that many of these orders are for higher trims. Those are a lot of well-heeled customers seeking out an electric super truck.
The GMC Hummer EV is still in the middle of rolling out. The SUV is expected to finally go into production in the first quarter of next year. Meanwhile, the EV3X trim of the pickup, the highest after the First Edition models, will go into production this fall. EV2X is slated to arrive next spring, and then the base EV2 won’t begin production until the spring of 2024. Production of Hummer EV Edition 1 models have rolled into the 2023 model year as General Motors continues to deal with supply chain headaches.
At one point, GMC Hummer EV production was said to be trickling at a sparse 12 units a day, and while that number may have increased, it likely hasn’t done so by a substantial amount. At that rate, customers could be waiting over a decade to see orders fulfilled (though highly unlikely GM would still be making the Hummer EV in its current form by that time). Across town, Ford Motor Company is working to increase its production of the much more affordable F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck to around 150,000 units by the end of the year, which equates to a total daily output of 400 electric trucks a day.
