    Ready To Pre-Order Your New Electric Hummer?

    Detroit Free Press
    March 3, 2020



    General Motors will start taking preorders for the GMC Hummer battery electric pickup on May 20.

    The automaker also said it will start production on the Hummer in September 2021 at its Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant.

    On May 20, GM will livestream a public reveal on www.gmc.com of the new Hummer, its engine specifications and its price, dealers told the Free Press and a GMC spokeswoman confirmed.

    "We will announce all the details, how many vehicles will be built, what the vehicle will look like and the configuration," said Michelle Malcho, Buick and GMC spokeswoman.

    The preorder program will be conducted on a first-come, first-serve basis. A customer will have to put a "certain cash amount" down and provide their name and contact information to preorder and reserve a Hummer, said Malcho.

    Looking forward to a complete sell-out on May 20th! Also good to know GM is going to take customer names and contact information. That could prove to be handy.

    ^I think you'll be disappointed. Lots and lots of "green" people dont want to be associated with Hummer. Bad marketing decision, but again, this is GM.

    Are U even serious? The absolute most sickening, most green, tree hugging, I mean sleeps in the same bed with their dog, picks up mushy and stained candy wrappers off the street and eats Mueslix person I know, when they saw the Hummer brand was now ELECTRIC ONLY.. said that it was a great idea and they hoped GM was serious about moving the brand in this direction.

    Fact is.. if this vehicle holds more than 5 people.. can haul more stuff.. and is physically larger.. a great deal of people will love it more than a prius simply because of the ramifications going forward that larger vehicles benefit from this tech more so than any small one ever could

    Think along the lines of 'having your cake and eating it too'.

    This could be a big sensation, obviously it's hard to tell with only one photo.

    You can find admirable qualities even in those you hate. Pre-order worked for Apple with the iPhone. Pre-order works in the video game industry. Pre-order works for Tesla. I don't see this as being a bad idea. And it serves as a barometer for the demand of Electric GM vehicles, which is feedback they need and will help them strategize a roll-out for future EV product.

    A lot of people pre-order Vettes too.

    And, no one will be able to charge at home without big electrical upgrades (like putting in larger service panel and running high amp circuits), which will crash the grid IF people pay up to do it. Hmmm. Looks like not a lot of thought in this, even after all this time.

    Going to poke my teenager, and get him going on an Electrician's license. They will be RAKING.

    I agree, wondering what the deposit will be, will it be refundable, etc.

    Then when they say it is 20,000 and 12 months later, they say "hey we can make 20K more" order-book back open!.............

    And just to be sure we are all on the same page:
