Already around 10,000 pre-orders for GMC Hummer EV

Around 10,000 pre-orders have apparently already been placed for the all-electric GMC Hummer EV Edition 1, which was unveiled at the end of October, and General Motors is already considering increasing production numbers as a result.

This was reported by the Detroit Free Press, citing a virtual dealer meeting that took place last Thursday. Within just ten minutes, the Edition 1 of the GMC Hummer EV was reportedly sold out, according to a dealer who attended the meeting. In addition, there would be enough orders to fully fill the first year of production. GM- did not want to comment on the number of pre-orders, however.

About half of GMC's 1,900 dealers in the U.S. have agreed to invest up to $140,000 to sell the electric pickup, given the high number of pre-orders, he said. The reason for this is said to be primarily the number of pre-orders. And it won't stop at the one electric model: GMC is also planning other electric models, including an SUV offshoot of the Hummer EV, which is expected to be unveiled in early 2021, as well as an all-electric version of the GMC Sierra pickup model. Rumors of an all-electric version for the GMC Sierra began in early 2019.

General Motors had just announced in late November that it would accelerate its shift toward electric mobility with increased investment and that it planned to launch 30 all-electric models worldwide by 2025.freep.com
