This new reservation process seems like a brilliant idea to curb the dealer mark-up. I really hope they allow changing dealers to create some competition too. At the very least, if someone gets surprised with a mark-up and cancels, the allocation goes away too. That way the dealer loses out too, if they don't treat customers right. 馃槑

I could be wrong, but it looks like GM has figured out a way to beat those initial ADM figures caused by new models and low initial allocations. Also, a fair way to deliver vehicles to customers who ordered 1st.

My reservation will be in tomorrow. Who else is in?

If I had the cash, I'd be in lol. But for now, I'm perfectly satisfied being a humble custodian of all the incoming Hummer EV info here. We're going to have a TON of info to sort out in the coming weeks, and lots of people coming here looking for that info and good advice, so it'll be a challenge!

Also, Trim Level 4 is the tri-motor variant I'd assume, working down to Trim Level 2 being the single-motor variant?

Looks like pricing will all be through GM so dealer won't be involved there. Liking this even more.

GMC has said that there won't be any dealer markups or dealer discounts for the Hummer. It's no-haggle pricing.


We have some good news for you. Automotive News is reporting that Duncan Aldred, vice president of global Buick and GMC, told investors on a call this absolutely won't happen. Yes, no-haggle pricing鈥攐nce a bedrock of GM's defunct Saturn brand鈥攎eans GMC Hummer purchasers will both get protected dealer price gouging and not receive incentives. Aldred promised that the price listed will be the price buyers pay, no negotiation required.

We're not privy to the conditions GMC will place on dealers, but Automotive News reports Aldred said that it's structuring the pricing scheme to provide sufficient margin to dealers, presumably so they'll get onboard. The report also notes that not all dealers will sell Hummer EVs鈥攔eportedly, only half of all GMC dealers have agreed to do so. We'd presume that electing to sell Hummers requires agreeing to the no-haggle pricing policies.

This is probably a good move for GMC to prevent ill-will among buyers turned off by opportunistic markups and perhaps speculative flipping, since it seems likely that Edition 1 Hummers will be scarce on the ground. We're sure buyers would pay a premium to get an Edition 1 early, but additional costs above MSRP won't be the limiting factor for now.

Excellent news. I really didn't want to go down that road and end up walking away pissed off because that disclaimer I received certainly didn't suggest no haggle pricing.
Thanks!

Yeah same here! Especially at the price they're already selling it at. I like that a dealer has to agree to it if they want to sell the Hummer.
