It will be interesting to see how dealer allocation works with the Hummer EV.

I'm already "on the list" for it at one of the top truck selling dealerships in TX... They said they expect more people to join the list after the Super Bowl ad.

Not if the first Hummer EVs arrive fall 2021.
I think GM has gone so far as to make statements that they are confident in their timeline and that they could be first to market. I think they are just throwing shade at other manufacturers by implying they will experience massive delays getting to production.

I agree with you.

I also think GM is playing catchup...you never know what transpired during their discussions with Rivian early on that fell apart. Before then they really had no EV news outside of the Bolt and soon after the Volt was discontinued. (I may be wrong on the timeline)

I am at a point to just want a Rivian regardless of it being R1T or R1S...even through I am a R1S reservation holder. I still like the shorter wheel base of the R1S.

Can I wait eight or ten months...hmmmmm

If they were so confident, why side with Trump on preventing states from setting their own emissions standards? I'll never buy a car from them or any of those other backstabbing parasites.

Because they manufacture more than zero emmissions vehicles. Instead of the cost & complexity of navigating varying compliance requirements, there should be a single standard.

I've encountered this in other industries & it becomes unmanageable fast. One of those things that sounds great in theory but isn't feasible in reality.

Electrics aside, everyone could have aligned with a single emissions standard by choosing the stricter CA standard instead of aligning with Trump's weakened national standard. I think the manufacturers revealed their true colors when they chose sides....

I'm going to seriously look into the Hummer. Partly because they took a stand with Trump.

It's also OK to set standards & then exceed them. Why set a regulation too strict, to the possible detriment of your company & employees?

Unfortunately most (not all) large corporations don't operate like that. Money and resources get prioritized to the projects that generate the most revenue... or are required for compliance. If they are never held accountable to making progress, it will never happen. Trump knew this well as his stated goal was to help reduce the average price of new vehicles by not forcing the manufacturers to invest in newer, more efficient and more environmentally friendly technologies. By keeping the costs of vehicles lower, Trump's secondary (or perhaps primary) goal was to encourage people to replace aging cars with newer cars theoretically resulting in a safer fleet of cars on the roads.

I believe that market incentive is more effective than regulation, whether it is on the supply or the demand side. Provide an economic reason for manufacturers or consumers to behave in ways that will reach your goals.

Regulation leads to bureaucracy & unnecessary overhead/costs that do not help the market.
