The automaker opened reservations for the new GMC Hummer EV shortly after the truck’s unveiling on Tuesday evening, charging customers $100 to reserve their slot on the waiting list. Before the end of the night, GM had sold out of the limited number of GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 models, which will come loaded up with virtually every available option and cost an eye-popping $112,595.
The GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 is the model variant pictured in the press photos being circulated of the new battery-electric truck. The Edition 1 trim, which is offered exclusively with the 1,000 horsepower tri-motor powertrain, will only be available in white with a contrasting black roof, bronze wheels and a ‘Lunar Horizon’ interior with Edition 1 badges. The truck will also come standard with available adaptive air suspension with Extract Mode, which raises the suspension by up to eight inches.
While GM is sold out of GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 models for now, prospective customers can still be added to the waiting list, the automaker says. All they have to do is reserve another available trim level and click the waitlist box on the reservation form. GM will then reach out to those on the waitlist if an Edition 1 reservation holder backs out and a vehicle becomes available.
GM Authority reached out to GM to get production numbers for the GMC Hummer EV and for the Edition 1 trim, but the automaker said it is not willing to share production figures at this time. It’s hard to gauge just high the demand was for the GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 is without knowing how many GM managed to sell out of, but the initial response to the truck does seem fairly strong.
The GMC Hummer EV will be built at the GM Factory Zero facility, formerly known as GM Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly, and is expected to begin arriving at dealerships in 2021 for the 2022 model year. Customers can reserve an available trim level via GMC’s website.
