Received email from my dealer just a moment ago; see italic text:

3X Truck Production should start Q1 of 2023 and Start Delivering Late Q2 of 2023
Edition 1 SUV’s Production should start Q1 of 2023 and Start Delivering Late Q2 of 2023
3X SUV’s Production should start Q2 of 2023 and Start Delivering Q3 of 2023

2X/2 Trucks & SUV’s Production should start in 2024. With 2X’s late Q1/Q2 2’s Late Q2/Q3

So based on the above information, 3X Truck reservation holders should begin the build process sometime early Q1. GM is supposed to send a communication to all reservation holders next month, updating them on next steps, timelines, etc. I can also tell you that GM is aware that communication can be improved and is working to equip dealers with more information moving forward.

I have had multiple inquiries on potential color options available, so I will share what I know currently, understanding that there could be some changes, but I’m not anticipating any. Hopefully this will at least allow you to start narrowing down potential color choices.

Exterior:
Tide Metallic (Ice Blue)
Interstellar White
Void Black
Afterburner Tintcoat (Orange)
Supernova Metallic (Dark Blue)
Deep Aurora Metallic (Dark Bronze)

Interior:
Lunar Horizon Interior (Jet Black/ Light Grey)
Lunar Shadow Interior (Jet Black/ Taupe)


This is me talking now; just because you know the Quarters and Years of production, that doesn't mean your Reservation Number will be hit. I don't expect my number to hit until 2025 or so and that's just fine with me; have other eggs to fry in the meantime ;)

EV2X got set back from 2023 to 2024? Now I wish I ordered the 3X.
Unless they find a magical portal where competed Hummer EVs come out I don’t think many 3X reservation holders (I’m talking 5k+) will see their trucks in 2023 either. Remember that during 2023 they’re also beginning production of the SUV and the Silverado EV. They can’t even make the SUTs fast enough and they’ve got new models coming online. Yeah, yeah, I know “factory upgrades are going to allow orders of magnitude increases in production”. Well, I’ve been hearing that on here for almost 6 months and they’ve managed to go from building an average of 3 trucks a day to 4.5 a day and they’re about to shut down for a month (a couple weeks starting at the end of November). Just so we’re clear on scale, to fulfill reservations in 2 years (on the Hummer EV alone, not including the 150k Silverado reservations or Sierra) they’d have to go from 4.5 a day to 123. Three years would be 83 a day. To fulfill all of their truck/suv reservations (that we know of) by 2027 they’d have to be building 164 a day, starting today and never stopping on all models. These numbers get higher everyday they don’t meet them and especially when the factory is closed. That’s just reservations, no builds for dealer stock, no non-reservation customer orders. It’s why I think I’ll get my Sierra EV Edition 1 before my Hummer, despite reserving it two years earlier than the Sierra, because they’ll prioritize Edition 1s of all their EVs. It almost feels intentionally slow, like they didn’t want thousands more on the road before ED1 owners beta tested them and found all the bugs. Probably reading more into it than I should, but all I know is I’ve spent nearly two years thinking I’d be in my 3X by the end of this year and I’ll be lucky I even see it in 2023. Besides the reveal and all the positive reviews the experience of buying a Hummer EV has been a massive disappointment so far…and it’s going to be a while before I even get the chance to turn that disappointment into excitement again by sitting in mine. Every “I just got mine” post on here used to make me smile and it felt like I was getting closer, but now even that is gone.

I am more optimistic that you. They built 750 in September, which is 25 per day, if you assume 7 days/week. No data yet for October, but they can easily hit 1000 per month starting next year and ramp that up. Remember the battery factory just came on line (August) and started at only 25% capacity.

Well, even if my number hits in 2023 or 4, I'm postponing til 2025; my 1st priority is the C8 E-Ray which won't be out til 2025; the Hummer is 2nd; the C8 ZR1 or the Denali is 3rd but one of them will be 4th...

Yeah, but where are they? They say they've built 2570. Even if you assume they built 100-200 for testing that will never be sold, and that there were 1200 customer ED1s, that's still over a 1000 trucks unaccounted for. They probably weren't dealer demos unless they're just sitting on them because almost every Hummer eligible GMC dealer in the nation would have one in the showroom...are there a 1000 3X Dealer demos sitting in a lot in Flint? It's just weird. The increased speed of production isn't being proportionally reflected in the frequency of deliveries, even before the stop sale.

Just conjecture, but could be that they 99% built most of the 750 previously and just finished a bunch in September (e.g., replacing/installing a final component).

That's why I wonder if that 2570 number is how many have BEGUN production, not completed. As it has been stated, they started 2023s in July but have yet to deliver any and trucks that shipped out in Aug/Sept. were still 2022s.

I was feeling the same way, I even just called around dealerships in Oct as I just wanted to see one up close and decide if it was something I really wanted to wait for. I was told by one dealership that a client hadn't picked theirs up yet and I could come view in person. I ran down to the dealership and was pleasantly surprised it looked much cooler in person than online pics. I was there about an hour looking through everything on it and then the general manager came out to let me know the client changed his mind and refused the EV1 and asked if I was interested. Well, knowing I was on the waitlist for the EV1 and no delivery in sight I said I'll take it. The vehicle is awesome and couldn't be happier. I think I just lucked out, but with the economy concerns it may be more and more common, check in with the dealerships.

I paid about 25k higher, but I was never going to see a EV1 and being on the EV3 list it might be forever so I felt it a fair price.
That's probably not too bad all things considered... My dealer had one and called me so I could come and look at it... I really just wanted to see it in person and just wait for my 3X...but he was trying to sell it to me for $190,000 (I think... I can't remember for sure) but it was very high.... They had bought it used from GM he thought....

I have seen them go for 200-250k here so I was happy. I did negotiate them down 30k so maybe if you find one you can work a deal after this stop sale, they don't want them to sit on there lot and stand to make money on them anyway.

I wished him luck at the price he was asking for and told him that I was happy to wait for mine at MSRP. And I do not know how many people in our area are interested in paying that much for a truck.. That was back during the 1st week of October, and I do not remember the exact date of the start of the Stop Sale... But I would guess that it's still there in their showroom... If you're in the Columbia SC area you could probably still go by and see it... I will ride by next week and see if it's still there.
