GMC recently launched the GMC Hummer EV electric pickup truck and it’s getting ready to launch the SUV version as well, but if you’re hoping to get one anytime soon, we have bad news for you. It appears that GMC is sold out of both Hummer models for quite a while.
GM Authority received an update from GMC’s global vice president Duncan Aldred, who stated that both the pickup truck and SUV versions of the Hummer EV are sold out “for two years or more.” Part of the reason that GMC is having a hard time keeping up with the demand for its EVs has to do with a lack of battery cells, which will eventually improve with the increased production that GM has planned.
GM is also shutting down production at its Factory Zero plant where the Hummer EV is built, for at least a few weeks while it upgrades the plant to build the new Chevy Silverado EV. During the shut down, nothing will be built, which will further decrease the possible Hummer EV inventory.
With the demand so high for the Hummer EV, it’s being reported that GMC is mulling the idea of a smaller Hummer EV midsize pickup.
