GM's president Mark Reuss just said on CNBC that there will be 1200 Edition 1's and 17 are ready to ship out. If only 1200 are going to be made their value will be through the roof.
How does 1200 represent an entire year of building edition 1s? That seems super ridiculous! That would mean only reservation holders are getting them and there wouldnt be any stock for showroom models until they start on the 3xs

I formerly retract my previous offer to sell my Oct 22 delivery of my ED1 in a different thread.... rather, i will now trade for an ocean front property in Maui, requirements include but not limited to: helipad, pools, year around staff

That would explain why there are so few entries on the reservation spreadsheet/thread. I hope this is true and he didn’t “mis-speak”.
I've gotta say, 1,200 is disappointing to me. I was hoping close to at least 5,000.

This truck will DEFINITELY be low volume, no matter the trim.

I've been saying the whole time I thought it was low numbers but I do think that doesn't seem accurate. Gotta be at least 7 or 800 going to just dealerships alone not counting reservation holders. Maybe someone will follow up or clarify next week since this new information is out there. I mean I'm cool with a very limited edition vehicle but not getting my hopes up for it being 1200 for the first year at this point.

I agree, I am really hoping this was a mistake. Maybe 1200 the first month or 12000 for the year. Could this be a slip of the tongue?

Hopefully one of us is lucky enough to get their truck as part of this batch.

Here's the official announcement from GMC.


DETROIT The first 2022 GMC HUMMER EV Pickups have been produced at Factory ZERO, and customer deliveries will now begin. The revolutionary GMC supertruck represents the first of many Ultium-based consumer vehicles to be produced as part of General Motors’ vision for an all-electric future.

“We brought this truck to market with speed and agility and brought GM another step closer to an all-electric future,” said GM President Mark Reuss. “With our Ultium Platform as the foundation for a broad range of applications, the GMC HUMMER EV offers our customers the ultimate in capability and performance.”

VIN 001 of the Edition 1 GMC HUMMER EV Pickup was auctioned March 27, 2021, at Barrett-Jackson at a hammer price of $2.5 million with proceeds benefitting the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, an organization established to honor the memory of Sept. 11 first responder Stephen Siller. The foundation builds mortgage-free, accessible smart homes for the most catastrophically injured veterans and provides mortgage-free homes for Gold Star families and the families of first responders killed in the line of duty. More information is available at www.tunnel2towers.org.

The GMC HUMMER EV Edition 1’s design features an Interstellar White exterior, unique Lunar Horizon interior and is powered by GM’s new Ultium Platform. Its revolutionary capability offers a GM-estimated up to 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of torque. It has a starting MSRP of $110,2951. Signature features include:

  • 4 Wheel Steer featuring CrabWalk2 – allows the rear wheels and front wheels to steer at the same angle at low speeds, enabling diagonal movement of the vehicle, for even greater maneuverability on challenging terrain.
  • Adaptive Air Suspension with Extract Mode3 – enables the suspension height to be raised approximately 6 inches (149 mm) to help the GMC HUMMER EV negotiate extreme off-road situations such as clearing boulders or fording water.
  • Watts to Freedom4 – a driver-selectable experience that unleashes the full acceleration capability of the EV propulsion system, including GM-estimated 0-60-mph performance in approximately 3 seconds.
  • Super Cruise5 – a driver-assistance feature offering hands-free driving on more than 200,000 miles (approximately 322,000 km) of enabled roads, and a new automatic lane changing feature, where the system can determine when a lane change is optimal and initiate the maneuver while following signaling protocols.
Though reservations for Edition 1 models are sold out, reservations for available models are currently accepted at GMC.com/HummerEV.

The GMC HUMMER EV leads future production of zero-emission vehicles at GM’s Factory ZERO Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center, which has been retooled, upgraded and expanded with a $2.2 billion investment by GM. Factory ZERO will serve as the launchpad for the company’s multi-brand EV strategy6.

From that video the 1st VIN I deciphered is 1GT40FDA8NU100001 . This actually pulls up the build in our GM system. Interestingly enough right now it is showing it was built October 5th, 2021. I can only find it in our Vehicle history section, but that is a real VIN for the 1st Hummer.

the 1200 number cannot be right, that is production of 100 per month, or 5 a day, it would not pay to turn the light on in the factory for that, unless that is all the batteries they can make until the Lordstown Ultium factory comes online.
