General Motors (GM) said it will no longer accept reservations for its all-electric GMC Hummer pickup and Hummer SUV.
Company spokesman Mikhail Farahi said Detroit Free Press That enthusiasm for the Hummer brand has led to “over 90,000 reservations for both pickups and SUVs, and we are excited to say that Hummer EV reservations are fully booked at this time due to this incredible demand.”
Farah said the reservation for EVs is split almost equally with SUVs.
“We are building version 1 and shipping them out. So small quantities of them have been put on the market,” Farah said.
“We have 90,000 people to get the Hummer. We’re manufacturing and shipping every day from Factory Zero and we’ll let people know when the brand can reopen order banks. There will be more.”
The automaker introduced the 2023 Hummer EV in 2020. Version 1 started at $110,295 and the SUV that was announced in 2021 starts at $105,595. The 90,000 reservations for SUV and Hummer EV pickups are as follows:
- version 1
- EV 2
- EV 2X
- EV 3X
In March, the automaker said the long wait would cause reservation holders to take delivery of their Hummer in early 2024.
In July, wall street journal reported that GM was producing only 12 GMC Hummer EVs per day in July, when reservations were at just over 77,000 vehicles. A spokeswoman for the automaker said they were expecting “hundreds of deliveries to increase to thousands by the end of this year.”
He also said the reason GM went slow was due to its dedication to quality on its new EV platform.
