Full First Year Allocation Of New GMC Hummer Sold Out In 10 Minutes

The GMC Hummer EV will be a workhorse, fast, a novelty and if you wanted to be among the first to own one, it’s already too late


  • This is not to be mistaken with Hummer Edition 1 selling out in the blink of an eye.

  • The deposit was only $100 to get your name on the list.


The GMC Hummer EV is only one of the many electric pickups slated to hit the market in the next 12 to 18 months. Unlike most of the others, however, it’s got a name to live up to and GM has made sure that “H U M M E R” will not be used in vain. Potential buyers are eager to get their hands on one as the entire run for the first production year is already sold out.

Under 10 minutes were all that was required to sell out the entire lot. The $100 deposit could partially explain why there were so many hand-raisers although interest seems more than genuine. The 1,000-unit $112,595 Edition 1 GMC Hummer allocation was spoken for in under an hour. Actual model year production volume numbers are unknown, as reported by Fox News.
