Demand for the GMC Hummer EV is running strong as new reservations for the all-electric off-roader continue to pour in. In fact, according to a GMC spokesperson, GM is currently holding 90,000 reservations for the GMC Hummer EV.
According to GMC, those 90,000 reservations are a combination of reservations for the GMC Hummer EV Pickup and GMC Hummer EV SUV. GMC also points out that new units of the Hummer EV are being built and shipped daily from the GM Factory Zero plant in Michigan, and that reservations are filled out in the order in which they were placed.
These latest reservation figures are a marked increase compared to reservation figures reported previously. Back in April, GM revealed that it has received roughly 70,000 reservations for the GMC Hummer EV, later disclosing in its Q2 2022 earnings report that the figure had risen to 80,000 reservations. Of those 80,000 reservations, it was estimated that 42 percent were new GM customers, while 75 percent were new to the GMC brand. The majority of reservations were for customers in California, Florida, and Texas, with the inclusion of the latter two states indicating that the GMC Hummer EV may be popular in those regions without a large percentage of EV registrations in the past.
Production of the GMC Hummer EV began late last year, with the automaker ramping up production through the second half of the 2022 calendar year. As of July, GM has produced 1,700 examples of the GMC Hummer EV Pickup.
As GM Authority exclusively reported in July, production of the GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 may extend into the 2023 model year. Originally expected to last for just a single model year, GM still has a backlog of orders for the Edition 1 left to build before it makes the switch to production of the 2023 model year. As a reminder, the Edition 1 features a 1,000-horsepower, tri-motor powertrain and estimated driving range of 329 miles per charge.
