Electric Hummer, orders above expectations. GM tries to increase production

The new electric Hummer that we have talked about several times is having great success in America. Apparently, General Motors it has received over 65,000 bookings so much so that the American brand is working for speed up production so that it can meet the demand of its customers. Second Duncan Aldred, GMC’s global vice president, the number of bookings is higher than the company’s forecasts. The number of people converting their bookings into orders to buy pickup (95%) is also higher than expected.

Despite the work to get production up and running, due to the strong demand for the new electric Hummer, who should order it today risks having to wait until 2024. GM confirms that the SUV version, only the pickup model is in production today, will arrive in the course of 2023.

The American carmaker points out that most of the bookings are for the pickup model but this is only because it was introduced first. After the presentation of the SUV model, reservations are split more evenly between the two variants. However, GM declined to provide pickup and SUV booking breakdown numbers. It does not matter, however, since overall things are going very well, a sign that the interest from the people is very high.

The American manufacturer, therefore, is studying how to further accelerate production. To achieve this, however, it will need a greater supply of components, including battery cells. In any case, customers will be asked to have a lot of patience in order to put their new car in the garage at home.

We remind you that the first deliveries of the pickup started at the end of December 2021. For the moment the top of the range Edition 1 version is produced which has a starting cost of about 110 thousand dollars. Model that can count on three electric motors capable of delivering 746 kW / 1,014 hp. The electric pickup is produced at the Factory ZERO which is located in Detroit.
