GMC Hummer EV is Entering Pre-Production

Pre-production of the Hummer EV has begun at GM's Zero Factory

  • Pre-Production has begun and regular production is expected by the end of the year

  • The Hummer EV will be made in GM’s Factory Zero

  • Other full size EVs from GM will be made there

The GMC Hummer EV has been one of the most anticipated vehicles since it was announced over a year ago.

Pre-Production has now begun and residents of the Detroit area will be able to see some of these vehicles undergoing final tests on the road.

The Hummer EV will be built in General Motors’ new Zero factory, which was previously known as Hammtrack assembly before it received a yet to be completed refurbishment in order to produce electric vehicles.

This factory has a long history since it sits on the grounds of the first Dodge assembly plant that was built in 1911. The current building was produced its first car, a Cadillac Eldorado, in 1985.

After having produced the last Chevrolet Impala in February of 2020, General Motors idled the plant in order to begin the $2.2 billion makeover needed for electric car production.

This construction work on the factory should be completed by the end of the year, at which point the Hummer EV will enter regular production.

In the mean time, Pre-production has begun and the factory is currently employing 435 workers. Since GM plans to build more full-size electric vehicles there, such as the Chevrolet Silverado EV, the GMC Sierra EV and the Cadillac Escalade EV, it will need more employees in the future, up to 2,200 by the end of 2022.

Because the plant was idled, 140 previous workers have recall rights when GM starts hiring. Out of the other previous Hammtrack assembly employees, 684 transferred to other assembly plants and 130 retired before the renovations started.
