Closing orders is an automaker’s way of trying to meet the current requisition of vehicles on order.
Many ordered these two vehicles, because the initial price was between US$85 thousand and US$111 thousand.
Launching from CNBC, starting today, Thursday (9/22/2022) GM revealed that orders for the GMC Hummer EV electric pickup and SUV have been closed.
So for consumers who want to order these two vehicles, they have to wait for the next order to be opened.
Slowly, GM has been increasing production of EV pickups since the beginning of this year. As of the end of June, the Detroit, Michigan-based automaker sold less than 400 vehicles.
Meanwhile, the GMC Hummer SUV version is expected to be rolled out to dealers and customers starting in early 2023.
Duncan Aldred, GMC’s global head, said production of the GMC Hummer SUV will precede the electric pickup version.
This SUV is claimed to be the first vehicle to be equipped with the latest generation Ultium battery and GM vehicle platform.
“When we produce an SUV, it has to be done immediately. Next year is a big year for the Hummer EV, both trucks and SUVs,” said Aldred last week.
GM’s decision follows Ford Motor Company which also closed orders for the F150 Lighting electric pickup, after its orders reached about 200,000 units.
