GM Has 80,000 GMC Hummer EV Reservations So Far19
In April, GM revealed that it had received roughly 70,000 reservations for the GMC Hummer EV, across both the Pickup and SUV model lines. The pre-orders continue to roll in, as the automaker confirmed in its Q2 2022 earnings report that it now has roughly 80,000 reservations for the Hummer EV on its books.
Of those 80,000 reservations, roughly 42 percent were from customers who are new to GM, while 75 percent are new to the GMC brand. The states with the most reservations so far are California, Florida and Texas – with the latter two serving as an indication the vehicle may be popular in states that have not recorded a large percentage of EV registrations in the past. GM also said previously that roughly 70 percent of GMC Hummer EV reservation holders have never owned a battery-electric vehicle before.
GM previously outlined plans to produce roughly 23,000 examples of the GMC Hummer EV Pickup this year, which was more than it had initially planned to build. This decision was made in response to higher than expected initial demand for the vehicle, with the automaker receiving a sizable 59,000 pre-orders by early February of this year. While it’s likely only a portion of these pre-orders will result in actual sales, the automaker will likely be pleased to see the Hummer EV generating this kind of interest.
So far, the only GMC Hummer EV Pickup units that have been built are of the range-topping Edition 1 trim, which was priced at $110,295 before it sold out. Less well-equipped versions of the Hummer EV Pickup will begin to hit the market once the production of the Edition 1 concludes, starting with the EV3X this fall, the EV2X in the spring of 2023 and the entry-level EV2 in early 2024. Production of the GMC Hummer EV SUV will begin next year, as well.

I remember when the H2 was all the rage. Every rapper, athlete and pretentious d-bag wanted one. Now you don’t see them on the road anymore. They were big, bulky and got terrible fuel mileage. Now it feels like deja vu all over again. Big, bulky, extremely heavy and terrible mileage per charge. And look who the spokesperson is. LeBron James, the biggest pretentious d-bag of them all. What a waste of resources.
The EV does resemble the H2. I remember seeing the H1, which was even more austere. I liked that one a lot. It the closest to the military version.
They have to speed up the production line
As far as I know we are only making 12 cars per day atm which is ridiculous
Totally agree. Who cares what the demand is if you’re not seeing up the manufacturing.
A reservation and a sale are not the same
Everyone knows this. But, if a percentage of reservation holders follow through and purchase, then increasing the reservations also increases your sales.
In that case we should expect to see Cybertrucks all over the place in a couple years.
They have over a million reservations.
There’s about 9 for sale on eBay for almost 1/4 million each……no thanks GM
Why not just reserve one instead of going to EBAY? It might take longer, but cost a lot less if you go to a dealer charging MSRP.
If you’re rich, why would you care about waiting just to save a little money?
GM will need to sell a lot more than that to recover the development costs
I’m sure development cost are spread across the Hummers, Silverado, Sierra, Brightdrop, etc. They all share a lot of the underpinnings. The front motor in the Hummer is the rear motor in the Lyriq and Blazer SS.
Part of the problem is the dealerships are privately owned and they are marking up the vehicles significantly or having an auction for a vehicle someone ordered 2.5 yrs ago instead of selling it to the orginal customer for MSRP. I had a dealership contact me and stated they had one for $220k right after I made my reservation.
I would say that besides them not offering Frunks on the Blazer, Lyriq, and Nox……GM has massive hits on their hands with all of their BEV’s so far!!!
It is so great to see that. Having said all that, they need to start Mass Production of BEV;s ASAP or it means absolutely nothing.
I think we should wait until they’ve massively sold them before we start celebrating the amazing success.
The need for a frunk is greatly overstated especially on vehicles that already have lockable storage in the trunk. Frunks aren’t heat or cooled and make any maintenance more complicated because you have to remove it to do basically anything up front.
A Nine Ton Vehicle with an explosive (battery) device, [email protected]! A local hospital reported that a lithium battery in a hospital portable workstation shorted out and battery caught on fire. The staff reported the fire shot out like a rocket engine. The metal box the lithium battery was located in melted into a puddle on the floor. The toxic fumes required evacuation of that entire hospital floor.
Where did this happen?
Hopefully you realize ICE cars catch fire all the time. Several ICE vehicles have recalls right now because they can catch fire. EV fires are harder to put out, but they catch fire an order of magnitude less often than ICE vehicles.
