According to The Wall Street Journal, despite the start of Hummer deliveries, General Motors has not been able to increase the production of its newest electric car.
According to media reports, the American automaker produces only 12 copies of the Hummer EV every day. For comparison, the same Ford produces 150 F-150 Lightning pickups every day, and Rivian, according to the results of the 1st quarter, reported on the performance of 30 to 40 electric cars per day.
GM representative Chad Lyons explained that currently there are about 77.5 thousand customers on the Hummer EV waiting list.
With the current rate of production, it would take more than 17 years to complete all these orders! However, the automaker is in a hurry to reassure customers: by the end of the year, GM promises to dramatically increase the production of its battery-powered Hummers.
According to WSJ, by that time the brand’s battery plant in Ohio will work. For now, the auto giant makes do with batteries from LG.
