GMC Hummer EV pricing and reservation how-to guide

GMC is accepting $100 refundable deposits for its long-awaited electric Hummer pickup. Here's everything you need to know about pricing and pre-ordering.

This year has been a particularly challenging time for many reasons, but for classic 4x4 fans, 2020 been a watershed period for revivals of iconic and dearly departed nameplates. The newest? The return of Hummer. More precisely, the 2022 GMC Hummer EV. That's right, General Motors' legendarily controversial name is back, it's brawnier than ever and it's battery-powered. While we won't see the first Hummer EVs in GMC showrooms before next fall, you can raise your hand with a $100 credit-card payment right now and reserve a spot on the list to get one. 

Maybe you are lock,-stock-and-barrel sold on owning the new GMC Hummer EV. Maybe you're on the fence, but want to hedge your bets. Who knows, you might even be a speculator. No matter what you're thinking, you've got very little to lose, as these are 100% refundable deposits with zero obligation to purchase a vehicle. Sounds familiar, doesn't it?

2022-2024 GMC Hummer EV pricing and availability

While we don't know the cost of any of the options, GM has revealed when you can buy which Hummer EV model -- pay attention here, because there are important differences, if only in wait time.

Hummer EV reservations

Once you follow the above steps on the GMC Hummer microsite and you receive your confirmation notice (the email can take up to 48 hours), you've got your place in line that will ensure you can eventually submit a vehicle purchase order. Your local dealer will contact you to complete and submit your order. The timing for this will vary depending on which model you put your deposit down on, but it's likely to be within several months before your chosen model is slated to be built in Michigan.

Hummer EV reservation cancellations

As mentioned earlier, reservations are fully refundable. You can get your $100 back by reaching out to your dealer and requesting a refund, or by calling 1-833-HUMMER-EV. GM says it may take up to seven business days to receive your refund. Important: You must cancel your reservation prior to submitting your purchase order.

Hummer EV dealer selection

According to the fine print, GMC says that the Hummer EV will only be available in the "48 Continental United States and Hawaii," which feels like a long way of saying Alaskans are out of luck. Canadians, rest easy -- your country has its own microsite reservation process.

Hummer EV microsite problems

The GMC Hummer EV microsite experienced some early functionality issues due to a surge in early reservation orders. The functionality wasn't quite as impeded as Ford struggled with after it revealed the Bronco, but it's possible this affected your ability to complete a reservation. Even now, if you're committed, you might need to be patient, and the first models earmarked for production, the loaded-up Edition 1, is sadly sold out -- or, more accurately, all of that model's reservation slots have been claimed. That said, there's a wait list, and you can still stake your claim for a spot in line for one of the later models.

Now, let's hope that GMC will reveal more key metrics like payload, towing and overall dimensions and weight so that potential buyers can make even more informed decisions.
