On top of the shocking demand, the GM Factory Zero plant in Michigan had to be shut down last November because of some needed updates, says Road & Track.
Why is the wait so long for the Hummer EV?
Like most other manufacturers, GM has experienced an unfortunate series of production delays, supply chain issues, and factory closures over the past few years. These issues have kept production behind. The issues compound because there is also a nearly record level of demand by customers. The result is high demand and low supply, which drives demand even higher and supply even lower. It’s a right mess.
Aside from the Hummer’s limited nature, the performance has the people foaming at the mouth. Not only is the new Hummer electric, so you don’t have to feel bad about owning a Hummer and destroying the Earth, but it also has 1,000 hp. Yep, 1,000 of them. This power means the positively giant pickup truck can throw itself from 0-60 mph in only 3 seconds. That is the same as a Lamborghini Huracan. Oh, and it only takes another 3 seconds to cross 100 mph. The 2022 GMC Hummer EV is faster than greased lightning. If that weren’t enough, there is also a laundry list of insane features like CrabWalk mode, Super Cruise, and an infotainment screen programmed by Epic Games, the maker of multiple very popular video games.
Overall this new Hummer is in a class all its own. Too bad it’s going to take until the sun explodes to fill the orders. Maybe production can ramp up in 2023. Either way, don’t fret if you are waiting for a 2022 GMC Hummer EV, just forget about it and be surprised when they are available.
