Reservations are non-transferable unless you get really creative in terms of purchase and registration agreements. It’s not trivial and not worth the brain damage. Easier to just buy the truck from one of the handful of people who will get them early with the intent of selling them. Yes, expensive, but less brain damage if getting one ASAP is your top concern. IMO that’s never worth it just to say “first!” as you’ll pay a premium to a private party and then already be the second owner of record. You can buy the same truck if you put in a reservation now, you may just have to wait a bit longer to get it and it probably won’t have the Edition 1 badge on it.

In reality, your best bet is to put in a reservation for the EV3X and check that you want to be on the waiting list for an Edition 1. GM is evaluating the demand for the Edition 1s, or what amounts to an all but fully loaded EV3X configuration, and they may build more than the initial intended number. In short, what they’re doing will be allocating all the full-spec’d orders to the front of the line. $112K + tax and extras is a lot for most buyers. I’d expect a lot of reservations to evaporate as we get closer and the serious buyers will move up in rank. We all don’t know how this is going to work, but an EV3X is fully configurable with all the same functional options as the Edition 1. So you can still have the larger battery that gives you 1000+ HP and WTF mode as well as the transparent roof panels and everything else. We don’t have solid answers yet on upgrade pricing or other cosmetic trim options like the lunar white exterior and some interior trim features that may be Edition 1 only or offered as part of the lunar landscape interior/exterior combo package that may or may not be an option on lower trims.

Production timeline is still a moving target. Many Edition 1 recipients may still end up taking delivery in 2022. No way to know where a reservation falls in terms of production timeline. The time/date of placing the reservation is an indicator, but production order is also determined by location and configured options.

All the dealerships that have paid the $125K premium to be official Hummer showrooms will get an Edition 1 truck for display/ demo purposes. They will be allowed to sell that truck at a later date. Perhaps there’s a dealership out there that has not promised that truck to anyone just yet.

Personally I think there will be very few deliveries in 2021, most Edition 1's will be delivered in 2022. If there are more than 1000 Hummer EV deliveries in Q4 2021, I will be shocked. No pun intended. I think they will start production in late September, but the first units will be for the captured fleet, and media drives. Real sellable units will start production in November, and deliveries in December. IMO I estimate 100-500 will actually get into customers hands in 2021. I am expecting mine in April 2022.

Battery supply will be very limited prior to the Lordstown factory coming online.
Totally agree. I should amend my post so that instead of saying many, it should say most Edition 1 recipients will get theirs in 2022. Even minor hiccups in factory construction, final design approvals, battery or component production, etc.. could very well push all deliveries to start in 2022.

Timing issues are always difficult with new vehicles. Had a timing issue with a Tesla Model 3 purchase myself and ended up buying another car altogether. I do think you can probably acquire one of the first few off the line for public sale, for a price of course. But if it's a timing thing, that still may not help... No guarantee that anyone will get one of these trucks this fall or even this year. I wish you all the luck and hope you find one. I also agree with StillHummer about the Facebook group -- more people there and more likely to find someone willing to part with a reservation.

Personally, I'm still deciding between the Hummer EV and Tesla CyberTruck. Overall I like the Hummer a lot better, but will weigh it against the final form of the CyberTruck when the time comes. The one thing about the Hummer that is giving me pause here is the 5ft bed. It may work with the tailgate down, but I need to be able to haul either of my two ATVs in the truck without a trailer. I'm not too worried about it, but it is a concern.
