General Motors has reached an important milestone on the long road to a fully electric lineup by kicking off customer deliveries of the hotly anticipated Hummer EV. The zero-emissions truck was originally unveiled back in October 2020 and has now entered series production at GM’s Factory Zero plant in Detroit and Hamtramck, Michigan.
The first available version of the much-hyped electric pickup is the fully loaded Edition 1 priced at $112,595. All are finished in white with a Lunar Horizon interior cabin and equipped with the Extreme Off-Road Package. The latter includes massive 35-inch tires, the Watts to Freedom launch mode, all-wheel steering (with Crab Walk), three removable transparent roof panels, and the Super Cruise driver assistance system as standard.
Equipped with three electric motors, the Hummer EV Edition 1 offers a massive 1,000 horsepower (746 kilowatts) for a 0 to 60 mph in only three seconds flat, which is mighty impressive given the vehicle’s size and especially its heft of 9,046 pounds (4,103 kilograms). It uses the Ultium platform and aims to cover a GM-estimated 329 miles of range thanks to a gigantic 200-kWh battery pack.
With the launch edition long being sold out, it means you will have to patiently wait for subsequent trim levels to go on sale. The first to arrive will be the $99,995 EV3X next fall with a tri-motor setup producing 830 hp or an optional 1,000 hp. At an additional cost, the standard range of 300 miles can be bumped to 350 miles, while the Extreme Off-Road Package and fancy removable roof are also on the options list.
The $89,995 EV2X model will follow in spring 2023 with dual motors for 625 hp and 300 miles of range. Even this lesser trim gets adaptive air suspension, Crab Walk, and four-wheel steering as standard. The Extreme Off-Road Package and Transparent Sky Panels cost extra.
Ultimately, the base $79,995 EV2 is due in spring 2024 with the same 625 hp but only 250 miles of range, although you can upgrade to obtain an additional 50 miles and the 800-Volt DC Fast Charging that comes as standard on the upper trim levels. It lacks the four-wheel steering and Crab Walk features altogether, but at least you can option the entry-level trim with the Transparent Sky Panels.
