GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 Pickup Hits 10,000 Pre-Orders15
General Motors has received 10,000 pre-orders for the range-topping Edition 1 version of the upcoming GMC Hummer EV pickup within minutes of the opportunity being presented to potential customers, reports HummerNation.com.
Though GM has not itself publicly disclosed any information about pre-orders, the claim comes from the Detroit Free Press, which has quoted dealers speaking on condition of anonymity following a virtual dealer meeting held earlier this month.
“The Hummer Edition 1 sold out in ten minutes and they said they had enough orders for it to fulfill their first year of production currently,” said one dealer. “But they are evaluating if they can build more.”
The Edition 1 will launch the first, and it will be the best equipped and the most expensive Hummer EV pickup. It will have a three-motor powertrain with a total power output, as exclusively revealed by GM Authority in January of this year, of 1,000 horsepower. The vehicle will go into production in late 2021, and will be priced to start at $112,595.
Three more Hummer EV pickup models will follow, in descending order of price: the $99,995 Hummer EV3X (arriving in the fall of 2022), the $89,995 Hummer EV2X (arriving in the spring of 2023) and the $79,995 Hummer EV2 (arriving in the spring of 2024). It costs $100 to pre-order (or reserve) any version of the vehicle, including the Edition 1.
Hummer EV production will take place at the former GM Detroit-Hamtramck facility, recently renamed to GM Factory ZERO plant, which will specialize in building electric vehicles. During the dealer meeting, GMC President Duncan Aldred reiterated that GMC will offer further EV models outside the Hummer brand.
“Duncan said we’re certainly not going to abandon our internal combustion engine vehicles because that’s our core business and that was good to hear,” said the dealer quoted above. “It’s to let people know they’re not going down the same road as Cadillac.” But unlike Cadillac, GMC will not offer buyouts to dealers who decline to sell the Hummer EV due to the cost of new tooling, employee training and installing charging stations.

I put down a deposit for the 3X variant because I wasn’t able to access the reservation page until ~15 min after it went live. I didn’t want mine in white anyway. My guess is GMC received way more than the 10,000 number being reported. I have no way back this claim up though.
When you put in a reservation you have access to the waiting list for the Edition One. My bet is there is a very very big waiting list for those to get a chance at it if someone backs out of the original reservation.
It could be worse….you could have put down a deposit on a LUCID or a TESLA. The electric motors in the Hummer EV are quite a bit further away from the passengers than in the TESLA death traps, so the electro-magnetic field intensity will be less, but not by enough to significantly reduce the risks of ill health effects.
CANCER, ain’t it a bich!!!
TESLA….what a bichin ride!!!
P.S. Happy Birthday Mrs. Barra.
OMG not this damn idiotic conspiracy again…..
how is you usless platform over rated garbage. Tonka toy might aswell be stamped made from scrap Avalanche wish I was I and never will be’s. worked for GM for many years. I’m disappointed that trucks are a work horse driven vehicle not a mall crawler status of I have to muck money. more plastic than my big wheel more options than apollo 11 . I’ll almost bet it never hits 400000 km and on top of it make a fiat jeep unattractive paper weight. Make all electric front wheel drive that cant pull the skim off milk . Gm should give them all away then pay people 50 dollars a day for the let down that they are train wrecking into. Time to build a real truck that cost less than a university degree .
You have the grammar skills of a 4th grader.
You’re very generous in your evaluation.
The way you write I doubt you worked for GM.
Thank you for your inciteful and articulate commentary on the electrification of the SUV/Pick up truck market. Based on your communication skills, may I suggest that having a keyboard does not mean you should attempt to use it.
“Its best to be thought a fool, than to type on the internet and remove all doubt”
Put the bottle down and report to your sponsor!!!
I like the base model 2024 I’ll put my $100 down after I see them in person late 2023 why any one wants to loan gm $100 for 3.5 yrs , if only has the avalanche fold down mid gate
The Avalanche was terrible….made in Mexico.
You should be more worried about those powerful electric motors spinning at 10,000 rpm and juiced by 10,000 cell phone batteries.
If you think holding a cell phone next to your temple is bad for you, driving an EV is worse than living under a cell tower.
Ice, Ice baby!!!
Go away and take your conspiracies with you.
