GMC Hummer EV Pickup Production Highest Yet In November 20226
After a slowdown over the summer, production of the GMC Hummer EV Pickup has been slowly ramping back up as more Ultium batteries and Ultium Drive units become available. Now, GM Authority has learned that the Hummer EV Pickup had the highest production figures yet during November 2022.
During November 2022, GM built 1,455 units of the 2022 Hummer EV Pickup at its GM Factory Zero plant in Michigan. This represents almost 29 percent of all GMC Hummer EV Pickup production thus far. When including the 140 units built during the 2021 calendar year, total production of the all-electric supertruck amounts to 5,030 copies as of November 30th.

Notably, the table above does not include production numbers for the BrightDrop Zevo 600, which also utilizes GM Ultium batteries.
Sales numbers of the Hummer EV Pickup correlates to this increase in production, as GM delivered 139 more units in Q3 2022 than in Q2 2022.

To wit, 800 units of the Hummer EV Pickup were build in Q2 2022 and 920 units were built in Q3 2022.
During the summer, GM favored Cadillac Lyriq production over the GMC Hummer EV Pickup, with Lyriq production ramping up at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee as fewer Hummer EV Pickups were built. This inverse relationship is likely due to the limited availability of Ultium battery cells, with GM dedicating more to the Cadillac. It’s also worth noting that Hummer EV production was also idled for a month as the GM Factory Zero plant received future product upgrades, before being idled again in November.
Thankfully, the recent opening of the first Ultium Cells plant in Ohio has increased battery pack supply considerably. As such, more Hummer EVs were built in November 2022 than any other month prior. This makes sense, as GM indicated in July 2022 that it intended to ramp up production during the second half of 2022.
As a reminder, 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup production began late last year at the GM Factory Zero plant (née GM Detroit-Hamtramck plant) in Michigan. Power output is provided by GM Ultium batteries and GM Ultium Drive motors, with the Hummer EV Pickup Edition 1 model producing 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 pound-feet of wheel torque.
Under the skin, the GMC Hummer EV rides on the GM BT1 platform, which also underpins the GMC Hummer EV SUV, as well as the upcoming Chevy Silverado EV and GMC Sierra EV.

I have yet to see a Hummer EV in my area. Lots of other EV trucks tho.
Roughly 15K EV trucks have been sold thru November 2022 nationwide. If you’re seeing “lots” of “other EV trucks”, that’s surprising.
In Southern California I see Rivian’s and Lightning’s every day.
There is one near me in SLC that I see occasionally, but surprisingly, I see at least one Rivian R1T most days.
Will Hummer EV be availiable on the European market?
1400 is impressive considering i thought they were supposed to be shut down for almost 3 weeks in november because of retooling?
