The GMC Hummer EV introduces a brand-new, all-electric take on the legendary off-roading nameplate, fusing rough-stuff capability with the latest in General Motors EV technology. Now, according to GM, the automaker has received nearly 59,000 reservations for the GMC Hummer EV.
The insight was provided with the release of GM’s Q4 2021 earnings report. The nearly 59,000 reservations include both the GMC Hummer EV pickup and the GMC Hummer EV SUV.
Reservations for the range-topping models in both the GMC Hummer EV pickup and SUV lineups filled very quickly, with all units of the GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 pickup filled by the evening of the truck’s debut on October 20th, and reservations for the GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 SUV filled in an hour after the model’s debut April 3rd.
Some buyers have already received their new Hummer. For example, celebrities Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis were recently spotted in Los Angeles driving around in their Edition 1 pickup.
Deliveries are under way now. As GM Authority covered previously, trucks loaded up with fresh new units of the GMC Hummer EV have been spotted out on the road headed to dealers.
Multiple powertrain options are offered, with the range-topping GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 pickup doling out 1,000 horsepower with a three-motor setup. The sprint to 60 mph takes just three seconds, while upwards of 329 miles of range can be had with a fully charged battery. Under the skin is the GM BT1 platform.
Production of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV pickup and SUV takes place at the GM Factory Zero facility in Michigan. Previously known as Detroit-Hamtramck, the GM Factory Zero plant is the automaker’s first dedicated all-electric facility, with the new Hummer EV arriving as the first vehicle to be produced there.
General Motors is now increasing its all-electric vehicle production, recently announcing a $6.5 billion investment for its EV production facilities in Michigan.
