I think GM's system for tracking and communication with customers needs improvement.
Ha, improvement? It needs to be gutted, redesigned, and restarted. It's non-existent, and info that does come out ends up kinda being worthless or too early creating a bad experience even more.

Just talked to my dealer who told me two weeks ago that the build week on his showroom Edition 1 truck was 8/28, now he is saying its the end of February. Add a couple months from then til it would land on his lot and I'd be looking at close to winter 2023 before I could take delivery of that if it has to sit for 6 months. I would hope my 3X would be ready before that! COME ON GM GIVE SOME CLARITY TO THIS (LACK OF) PRODUCTION! These are big ticket items and people who were originally told spring delivery still have no "built" emails or any idea when they'll see their Hummer. Earlier this year GM was stating 20,000+ Hummers this year now it seems as though they'll get maybe 2,000.

I'm not even annoyed by the fact that my dealer's showroom unit is now 6 months later because I had an order for a 3X and I was lucky that my dealers said they'd let me have the Edition 1 model because I was their first preorder, but I would hope that GM would be well in to the 3X models before this edition 1 would be available for me to take delivery, and at this point I'd take the 3X just because I JUST WANT A FRIGGIN HUMMER!

Maybe @Aloppen could pop in here and give us an actual realistic picture of how production is going to move along.

They moved to @aloppen1 Though I don't know if he can provide that.

They are way behind, and will remain behind - I know others think differently. They aren't going to ramp up to 1000s with all the issues going on, logistics, ramp up needed, etc. My take is that the entire timeline of release dates, etc. will on average push back 1 year give or take some. >1 year for really high output even.

Everything is speculation at this point. You dealer’s demo build moving to Feb could be due to production speed or maybe they just deprioritized demos for customer cars. I mean, demand isn’t a problem and a demo on every showroom floor isn’t going to make a difference for a vehicle you’re looking at well over a year to get if you’re just now preordering anyway. I was surprised when I heard they were even building dealer demos before demand was satisfied. Even dealers are in the dark and few know more than us. I wish we had concrete info instead of just reading tea leaves.

GM has never said 20K Hummers built in 2022, that is a LIE. They did say 2023 Lyriq would have 20K in the run.

Speculation. GM planned for 1200 Hummer deliveries in the first model year and has delivered half, with production increasing. I think they will make the 1200 delivered before the end of the first year of deliveries.

i remember seeing this stated in multiple articles around the same time, but here is the number from GM authority.
GM Authority your source? HAHAHA, those guys are idiots, and publish lots of propaganda and rumors, find an official GM statement, or admit your comment is speculation. I have not seen GM give any EV statement on production with dates... other than 400K produced in North America by the end of 2023.

To be accurate you should write, "GM Authority said earlier this year ..." but GM has not confirmed.

This article says 20,000+ planned too.

GM plans six-fold increase in 2022 electric truck, SUV production -sources

Again, taking information from suppliers, but not an official GM statement. These can so easily be taken out of context, and made to sound like something they are not. Lots of rumors floating around, and while some may be true, I only take an official, and specific statement from GM as factual and anything less can be taken out of context and mean something completely different. There is a lot of anti GM FUD floating around also, and all the GM EV sites are bombarded with it.

The bolt recall and fires also have them SUPER gun shy. It feels like they want enough of these out there to get feedback but not enough for recalls to be a “big deal”, I saw at least 3 news posts based on that TikTok video of a hummer in service for a dead 12v. It may just be me but every time we see a new “issue” shipments appear to grind to a halt. Again, that may just be coincidence or circumstance. I get that there’s some uncertainty on GM’s part on how fast they can produce and providing timelines to reservation holders but they should have a rough idea on the coming weeks/months. I think no news is worse than bad news for reservation holders. Managing expectations is everything.

12 V battery discharging is an issue GM needs to resolve before deliveries ramp up, I have not had a dead battery, but have seen a few software glitched that could possibly cause a discharge.

Spring reservation holder and got the built email June 15. Nothing since then. Concierge says they know nothing without an order number. Seems odd they would not have it.
Reserved the 3X first week of November 2020. The only communication I've received so far is an e-mail from the concierge on 3/8/22 assuring me that my reservation did go through (after I called them worried I haven't heard anything), and the e-mail contained the reservation number. I believe the estimated fulfillment date when I made the reservation was Spring 2022, can't really remember. So for the posts on this thread that say you were a Spring reservation holder with a June built e-mail, when was your reservations made? I've contacted my selected dealer who confirms I'm number 11 on the list. I should've asked him if they will be at or close to MSRP, didn't think about it during that call...

We are all waiting on Edition 1s still this year; all reservations were made in the first few minutes of 10/20/2020 at latest.

Yeah, I’ve got a 3X reservation a few minutes after Edition 1’s sold out and have no idea when I’ll get mine. Original timeline was Fall 2022 but the only way they’ll hit that is almost flawless production ramp up to thousands a week in the next 2-3 months.

Ah got ya. Good info. I figured most of the Edition Ones were shipped. I’ll look for my 3X email in Spring ‘23 at earliest in this case.
nah like half of us edition 1s are still waiting on a fully built email. Only firm statement I get is it should deliver by December (aka end of Fall per GM).

I was a little bit late learning about the new Hummer and completely missed the the 1st Announcement, but I think that I saw a news article about it after the Edition 1's sold out.... I got my EV3X in on 10/23/20...and I have been patiently waiting ever since and reading pretty much every post here as I wait... I am OK now to just live vicariously through those of you who have yours...
