GM starts delivering electric Hummer pickup trucks to customers

Reading Time: 2 minutes

According to a press release on the company’s website, GM has begun shipping its Hummer EV Edition 1 pickup trucks out of the plant and onto customers’ driveways. The Hummer EV Edition 1 vehicle, which is based on the Ultium chassis, costs $110,295 and has up to 1,000 horsepower, 11,500 lb-ft of torque, and a range of 329 miles.

“CrabWalk,” a mode that allows the truck to drive diagonally at low speeds by pivoting the rear and front wheels at the same angle, is one of the vehicle’s unique features. Another feature raises the truck’s suspension by six inches, potentially allowing it to clear large rocks or water when off-roading — GM says this feature won’t be available with 2022 Edition 1 models, but it will be available via a free software update and will be standard in any models produced in 2023 and beyond.

The Hummer EV Edition 1 also has a performance mode that allows you to tap into the full strength of the electric propulsion system, which GM claims can propel the vehicle from zero to 60 mph in under three seconds. It also comes with Super Cruise, which allows you to drive hands-free and automatically change lanes on suitable roads. Due to a chip shortage, Super Cruise was temporarily disabled on the Cadillac Escalade in 2022, although it does not appear that the Edition 1 is affected.

Although the Hummer EV Edition 1 model has sold out, other trims are still available for preorder. The Hummer EV 3X is expected to go on sale in the fall of next year for $99,995. It will have a range of nearly 300 miles and three motors with a combined output of 830 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of torque.

The 625HP Hummer EV 2X, on the other hand, will cost $89,995, have two motors, and be available in the spring of 2023. It will have a range of 300 miles and deliver 7,400 lb-ft of torque on a single charge. Finally, the Hummer EV 2 is the cheapest of the bunch, with two motors that produce the same 625 horsepower and 7,400 lb-ft of torque. In the spring of 2024, GM aims to release it for $79,995, with a range of over 250 miles on a full charge. On GM’s website, you can see a complete list of cuts.

Late last year, the business unveiled the electric Hummer pickup vehicle. The first of its sort was auctioned off in March for $2.5 million, with all earnings going to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, a charity that assists wounded warriors. GM also revealed that the BrightDrop EV600, a commercial delivery truck based on the Ultium platform, had begun shipping to FedEx.
