GM Stops Taking Hummer EV Reservations as Numbers Pass 90,000
After GMC surpassed 90,000 reservations for the electric Hummer last week, the automaker plans to officially close pre-orders for the 2023 model year vehicle.
GM is set to close reservations for the Hummer EV pickup and SUV, following over 90,000 preorders, as reported by CNBC.
The automaker will keep them closed for now to help catch up on delivering its current orders, which bear expected delivery timelines extending well into 2024.
Wednesday was the final day to reserve one of the Hummer EV pickup trucks, with the automaker closing reservations for both vehicles on Thursday.

“We knew it would be a slow ramp. But next year, when you look at the calendar year, I think you’ll see a normalized year,” said GMC Global Head Duncan Aldred. “When we produce SUV, that should get into stride right away … Next year is a big year for Hummer EV, both truck and SUV.”
Different trims of the Hummer EV are priced ranging from $85,000-$111,000, and GM has been ramping up production of the pickup and SUV versions throughout the year.
Hummer SUV production is expected to ramp up more quickly than the pickup, being the first GMC Ultium drivetrain-bearing vehicle made by the brand.
In addition to the U.S., GM says it will sell the Hummer EV in European markets, alongside the upcoming Cadillac lineup.
