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.
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.
