....GM no longer taking reservations for the Hummer EV....topping 90,000 so far....


GM to close reservations for electric Hummer pickup, SUV after topping 90,000

General Motors will close reservations for its electric GMC Hummer pickup and the forthcoming GMC Hummer SUV after more than 90,000 of the vehicles were reserved.

Closing the reservations is a way for the automaker to try and fulfill the current list of reserved vehicles, which extends out to at least 2024.

GM has been slowly ramping up production of the Hummer EV pickup since earlier this year.

.....General Motors will close reservations for its electric GMC Hummer pickup and the forthcoming GMC Hummer SUV after more than 90,000 of the vehicles were reserved, the company said Wednesday.

Closing the reservations is a way for the automaker to attempt to fulfill the current list of reserved vehicles, which extends out to at least 2024. The number of reservations is notable because of the starting prices of the vehicles, which range between roughly $85,000 and $111,000.

GM said it plans to close reservations for both vehicles starting Thursday. Anyone wanting to reserve one of the electric trucks must do so by the end of Wednesday.

GM has been slowly ramping up production of the Hummer EV pickup since earlier this year. As of the end of June, the company had sold less than 400 of the vehicles. The SUV version is expected to begin arriving to dealers and customers starting in early 2023.

Duncan Aldred, global head of GMC, said production of the SUV should happen more quickly than the pickup, which was the first consumer vehicle to feature GM's next-generation Ultium batteries and vehicle platform.

"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," he told CNBC last week at the Detroit auto show. "When we produce SUV, that should get into stride right away … Next year is a big year for Hummer EV, both truck and SUV."

GM's decision follows Ford Motor shutting down reservations for its electric F-150 Lightning pickup after hitting roughly 200,000 units. It also had shut down reservations for the electric Mustang Mach-E crossover, but they have since reopened.....



no longer taking...........reservations.......?!

Arnold had an electric hummer back in the day too. But his looked good.

At the opposite end of the economy, Ford is cutting off 2023 reservations for the Maverick as well.

They still sell Mavericks? To whom?
One of my kid brothers bought himself a Maverick sometime last century - he still bemoans that decision but then he still bemoans most decisions he's made.

They're re-using the name for a compact pick-up truck. Actually compact, as in smaller than the Ranger.

I guess they've all abandoned assembly lines.
