More Than 1,000 GMC Hummer EV Units Were Built In October 20227
October 2022 was a big month for the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup, as well as 2023 Cadillac Lyriq, as both Ultium-based vehicles hit major production milestones.
During October 2022, GM built 1,005 units of the 2022 Hummer EV Pickup at the GM Factory Zero plant in Michigan. This represents almost 28 percent of all Hummer EV production thus far. When including the 140 units built during the 2021 calendar year, total production of the all-electric supertruck amounts to 3,575 copies as of October 31st.
Also notable was the increase of Cadillac Lyriq production. For the fourth month in a row, there were more Lyriqs built than Hummer EV Pickups, and now more Lyriqs have been produced overall. 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 is likely due to the limited availability of Ultium battery cells, with more dedicated 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, and has been idled again in November.

Notably, the table above does not include production numbers for the BrightDrop Zevo 600 delivery van, which also utilizes GM Ultium batteries.
Due to the opening of the first Ultium Cells plant in Ohio, battery pack supply has increased considerably. As such, more Hummer EVs were built last October 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.
As for structure, 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’d probably buy the gas Hummer AGAIN as I kept mine 13 yrs (6.2 gas) and only replaced ONE item during that period.
I own a 2020 (6.2 gas) 4×4 High Country now, from two previous Escalades!
In my opinion, EV we’ll die like the Edsel …watch!
With the price of gas dropping, now down 25% since the peak this summer, I would think the interest in EVs is dropping too.
The price of gas is down everywhere, also in Quebec. Its because there is less demand. It will go up again just you wait. Inflation is global. Actually the interest in EVs is growing. I’m waiting for mine.
Thanks, GM. I have two HUMMER-EV’s on order since last spring and, so far, I have not heard one word from GM as to if, when or what model of HUMMER is available to order.
Also, have not been able to find out any info re what kind of electric base will be needed.
At 12060 per year, I hope you ordered the Hummers in early 2020, or you could be waiting another 40+ years.
You mean how do you recharge it at home base?
110 volts at 8 amps at a regular outlet, or 32 amps at 190-250 volts
Nema 40 amp 14-50 receptacle required but probably installed by Qmerit for free if u want to charge at 220 volts…
They built a thousand and delivered none of them. Stop sale since Mid October and now word is deliveries will be delayed until at least Q1 2023 for 2022 MY vehicles. A complete joke.
