The Bolt and Bolt EUV, for comparability, are doing comparatively effectively in keeping with GM’s gross sales numbers, and dealerships have managed to maneuver 19,700 Bolts to this point in 2023. Happily for Cadillac, the Lyriq is selecting up steam, and 968 Lyriqs have left the lot within the first quarter of 2023. Final 12 months, solely 122 of the EV Caddy had been bought.
That being mentioned, solely two Hummers is hard to shake. The Hummer is hardly an entry stage automotive, with the Version 1 retailing for $110,295, with deliberate later variations retailing for near $90,000. Even so, Tesla nonetheless managed to promote exponentially extra six-figure EVs like its Mannequin S. Ford continues to lift the worth of its F-150 Lightning EV, and potential consumers are nonetheless kicking down the doorways to get their arms on one.
The numbers are even harder to abdomen when it is in comparison with final 12 months. GMC bought 854 Hummer EVs final 12 months. Inside the identical model, GMC bought a complete of 241,522 Sierra pickup vans; a truck that, though not as extreme because the Hummer, has no concern approaching six-figures when configured with choices.
Hopefully, for GM’s Ultium future, upcoming vehicles just like the EV Equinox and EV Silverado can add some gross sales magic to the platform. A few Hummers is not going to do it.
