Earlier today, the reservations for the $112,595 Hummer EV Edition 1- which will go sale in late 2022 – filled in just 10 minutes. So clearly, the first-ever GMC electric vehicle is shaping up to be a great seller for the brand. The GMC HUMMER EV is designed to be the ultimate off-road EV supertruck, with all-new features developed to challenge tough obstacles and terrain.
Design wise, the Hummer EV stays true to its heritage, so even though is sleeker than the previous models, it’s still easily recognizable. The EV supertruck is getting H-shaped headlights, paired with LED light bars. The wide fenders can accommodate tires as large as 37 inches, thanks to the flared body design.
In the back, the cargo box is accessed via a MultiPro tailgate like the one found on the GMC Sierra. Furthermore, the GMC Hummer EV has a fixed rear bulkhead. A skid plate will protect the floor-mounted battery packs even going off-road. All the Hummer EV models come with the Infinity Roof’s removable roof panels.
GMC has revamped the interior of the Hummer by giving two massive screens: a13.4-inch infotainment screen and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Off-road widgets will display vehicle functions and terrain status through the infotainment and driver information screens. Examples include torque output, differential locker engagement, tire pressure, pitch and roll angles (including maximum values), a drift gauge (with maximum values), friction circle, torque vectoring and more.
The UltraVision front and rear underbody cameras show a live view, while other cameras provide a maximum of 18 different views.
At launch, the 2022 GMC Hummer EV comes with 1,000 horsepower (746 kilowatts) and 11,500 pound-feet (15,592 newton-meters). The Hummer EV3X, the next model in the pipeline, is scheduled for Fall 2022 and comes with 800 hp. Range for this $99,995 model is expected to be least 300 miles.
