Q1 2023 Hummer EV Pickup Sales Plummet

Worst Unit Delivery since Q4 2021

GMC has reported an impressive total of 130,608 vehicles delivered in the U.S. during the Q1 2023 period, registering a healthy rise of 7.6 percent compared to the same timeframe last year.

Unfortunately, once more we have not got any encouraging report concerning customer shipping of the electric GMC Hummer EV Pickup. Based on the newest statement, shipping in Q1 virtually ground to a halt with only two quantities delivered.

That’s a dramatic decrease of nearly 98% (from 99 units the previous year) and is the most inadequate result since its market debut, when only one car was delivered in the fourth quarter of 2021.

By 2022, GMC had handed over 854 Hummer EV Pickups; presently, the total reaches 857.

There exists a motive behind the gradual acceleration; initially, it had been progressing during Q1-Q3 of 2022, however following that, it was placed on hold. The cause is due to the Factory ZERO in Michigan (Detroit and Hamtramck) readying itself to contain extra Ultium-based models (chiefly the Chevrolet Silverado EV).

It is clear that the Chevy Silverado Electric Vehicle (EV) is a key point of focus for GM at this moment; a venture that carries great significance in both quality and quantity. Moreover, with other sustained electric pickups in the market, the Chevy Silverado needs to be prepared for its official introduction so it can effectively contend with the Ford F-150 Lightning.

The facility is undergoing modernization, thus a likely launch of the Chevrolet Silverado EV in late Spring. Also, as per GM’s assertions, Factory ZERO is producing and shipping GMC Hummer EV Pickups and GMC Hummer EV SUVs, providing further substantiation for anticipations of an outstanding second quarter.

It is noteworthy to recollect that the firm halted bookings for the GMC Hummer EV Pickup and GMC Hummer EV SUV models in September, with more than 90,000 orders secured (secured by $100 refundable deposits). In October last year, reports said that the twin Hummer EVs have already been sold out until 2024.

“We hope that GMC will be able to manufacture at least a few ‘thousand’ every three months or else the waiting list will never be cleared,” is what we are hoping for.
