General Motors can be satisfied with the new success Hummer EV has collected up to now on the market. In fact, more than 77,000 models of the electric pick-up have already found a new owner, an important figure that raises the challenge between the US giant and Tesla in the field of electric vehicles. Many of the new Hummer EV customers will have to wait a long time to get their hands on their battery-powered truck though – GM is currently only building one. dozen Hummer EVs per day, which means that waiting times will be considerably long for many buyers.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, a spokesman for General Motors said that the increase in production was slower than expected since the electric pickup was developed from scratch with a new EV platform: remember that by the end of the summer the new Hummer EV will start using cells produced in an Ohio plant that GM will operate together with LG. “Our ability to meet strong demand for the Hummer EV will only improve as we continue manufacturing battery cells. – added the spokesperson – We expect to see hundreds of deliveries of our new electric truck soon, and then see them grow to thousands by the end of the year“.
What mainly worries General Motors is the Hummer EV’s production delays compared to what other automakers with similar models aren’t encountering – think Ford with the new F-150 Lightning, or Rivian with the new R1T, electric pickups. who have witnessed a increased production given the rain of orders received. GM’s fear, therefore, is that potential buyers of the new Hummer EV decide to abandon your order to turn to models of the same caliber of other brands.
