If they are actually only making 1,200 I would assume some GMC dealers won’t get any.
I can’t believe that out of the thousands and thousands of reservation deposits I was lucky enough to get one! Something seems fishy about that number!

Dealers had to agree to add/pay for certain infrastructure needed for serving EV vehicles. Only one of the three dealers in my area made the investment. The other two will not get any Hummers.
Yeah, I spoke with the people at one of the GMC dealers in my area and the salesman had the Hummer all over his desktop background, but he said that they weren't getting any. He said that their owners were mad at GM about the supply issues and until they got that resolved, they weren't going to be selling the Hummers...
But, with so many other EVs coming from GM, notably the SilveradoE and later the SierraE, it seems like it would be a really BAD idea to not be ready and maybe miss out on those sales and/or service as well... It seems to me that they should be doubling down and preparing for the future.

Most GMC Dealers are also Cadillac Dealers, so they have to invest in the same prerequisites for Hummer, install adequate charging infrastructure & buy a lift truck big enough to handle the weight of the Hummer battery pack.
There are other staffing/training criteria, but I think some Dealers are behind on the lift trucks & Chargers. It does not make sense to me, they had over a year, as they had to commit to these requirements before reservation day to be listed.
I am glad that mine is, as they had the verification call last week making sure they were ready. I hope that was good news for me.

I'm going to check with my local dealer. He called me after the Reservations were made and told me he was getting 2 and I was first on his list, that was last year.
I spoke with him a few days ago after I received a email stating I would be getting mine in spring 2022 from that dealer. He is more in the dark about the truck then we are. And he has not done anything yet for the EV Service Infrastructure as far as work being done to the dealership, unless it is internal only, that being the case then I really don't know. My business is right next door to the dealership. I will pay him a visit after the holidays.

I know an issue we ran into here was simple supply chain problems. Our lift has been installed for months now, but the chargers have all been backordered most of the year. We just started to see them trickle in and are going to have to work quicker to get them installed. That's been fun to deal with.
@BigJonEV a member on a fb group said he was on a dealer conference call and that there were 1200 being produced for just dealers. Can you comment on anything to this? Getting hard to tell what's being misinformed on any front now. Just wondering if you knew anything on the dealer side ? Thanks

I don't know total exact numbers for production as of yet. I do know we are still expecting our showroom model later in the year. I will try to find out if that 1200 figure was for the dealer allocations or not. I believe there is a way to see how many dealers completed the process to be EV/Hummer certified.

As of October 20 last year Duncan Aldred said just over half of GMC dealers signed up, and he has since stated many more signed on after they say initial interest in the Hummer. How many GMC dealer s are there?
