The first 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickups have been produced at GM’s Factory Zero in Detroit-Hamtramck and customer deliveries are scheduled to begin.
“The revolutionary GMC supertruck represents the first of many Ultium-based consumer vehicles to be produced as part of General Motors’ vision for an all-electric future,” the automaker said in a statement.
“We brought this truck to market with speed and agility and brought GM another step closer to an all-electric future,” said president Mark Reuss. “With our Ultium Platform as the foundation for a broad range of applications, the Hummer EV offers our customers the ultimate in capability and performance.”
VIN 001 of the Edition 1 pickup was auctioned on 27 March, 2021, at Barrett-Jackson at a hammer price of US$2.5m with proceeds benefitting the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
The Edition 1 has an Interstellar White exterior and unique Lunar Horizon interior. Starting price is $110,295.
- 4 Wheel Steer featuring CrabWalk2 – allows the rear wheels and front wheels to steer at the same angle at low speeds, enabling diagonal movement of the vehicle, for even greater maneuverability on challenging terrain.
- Adaptive Air Suspension with Extract Mode3 – enables the suspension height to be raised approximately 6 inches (149 mm) to help the GMC HUMMER EV negotiate extreme off-road situations such as clearing boulders or fording water.
- Watts to Freedom4 – a driver-selectable experience that unleashes the full acceleration capability of the EV propulsion system, including GM-estimated 0-60-mph performance in approximately 3 seconds.
- Super Cruise5 – a driver-assistance feature offering hands-free driving on more than 200,000 miles (approximately 322,000 km) of enabled roads, and a new automatic lane changing feature, where the system can determine when a lane change is optimal and initiate the maneuver while following signaling protocols.
Edition 1 models are already sold out.
