For those lucky Members like @Malaligned & soon @Dark-Fx...I was hoping you could share the miles on your Hummer EV when you picked it up?

I know there may be some other members @john.e.schwegman also from Michigan that have theirs...and maybe some in other States.

The reason for my question is the news that all of the Michigan Deliveries were being field checked by a Factory Team before delivery (most likely why they are being delivered in a random VIN sequence to Michigan Dealers first) & I wanted to know if this entailed a lot of drive tests.

My Dealer reached out to me after a conference call will GMC saying that they will need to have my Edition One for 6 days once delivered to them for testing & PDI (only the PDI Tech having access or driving it...not on the showroom or joy rides).

I am still not built (no email) & on the left coast, with my Dealer saying mid-March to End of March for my "Winter 2022" Delivery.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated 馃檪.

I'll find out when I pick it up Saturday and let you know. It sounds like the GM tech is teaching the dealer employees how to do the PDI process on it. Mine is the first with the powered hard tonneau at my dealer so they are working on all that stuff right now.
I am really excited for you...I hope you get a lot of enjoyment driving the new toy!!

There were 7 miles on my truck when it arrived at the dealer. It took them 5 days after delivery to install all of the accessories/options and by the time I took delivery there were 15 miles on the truck. According to my dealer the hood decal is actually what held up the delivery as it requires 72 hours for the adhesive to dry and cant get wet in the meantime.

From my time at GM I can vouch for the fact that sometimes vehicles are driven up to 50ish miles prior to customer delivery. This could be due to a number of reasons and may occur before the dealer even takes delivery (usually this was from engineers performing tests/evaluations on certain components).

I am also on the West coast and have been given the Winter 2022 delivery window but no news about build being complete yet so very interested to hear when you get the build email. Please share if you do and I will do the same.

Thanks for the detailed reply. This is great feedback...especially the hood decal info. I am getting red emblems & hooks with the red lunar map on the hood. Might as well bet the stack on the lunar theme 馃槅

Dark-FX please give us an update on the powered hard tonneau cover, how much bed space?, quality, smooth running etc. I am a fan of the hard tonneau covers and the ability to lock it up to secure stuff in the bed! Of course your thoughts on the overall highlights and low lights is appreciated as well! Good luck with the pick up brother!

I'm aware. I rarely charged my Bolt EV to 100% and even more rarely had the GOM read over the rated 238 miles, but don't remember this behavior. Just thought it was interesting.
While charging the voltage is higher, then sags after the charger turns off. That happens with all L-ion batteries.
