General Motors Truck Company (GMC) expands its electric vehicle lineup by unveiling the new Hummer EV SUV. The American carmaker has designed this EV based on their next-gen Ultium Platform and will commence its production in the next two years.
The all-new GMC Hummer EVs are built to be the most capable as well as compelling electric super trucks. By offering options to tailor the truck to customer’s lifestyles, the company encourages new ways of driving with zero emissions.
GMC Hummer EV SUV is offered in four different versions – EV2, EV2X, EV3X, and Edition 1. The first three models will arrive later; however, the Edition 1 Hummer EV SUV version will be the first to go on sale by 2023.
To speak about pricing, the fully loaded Edition 1 SUV will hold a price tag starting at $105,595, whereas the other models like Hummer EV2, EV2X, EV3X will be priced at $79,995, $89,995, $99,995, respectively. The most affordable SUV – EV2, is slated to hit the market by 2024.
The carmaker provides GM’s Super Cruise hands-free driving technology on every Hummer EV. To mention the differences, the Edition 1 model comes with an estimated 300 miles of range, 830hp, and sprints from 0 to 60mph time in around 3.5 seconds. The battery capacities are not yet revealed, but we can expect it to get 800-volt DC fast charging.
On the other hand, the GMC Hummer EV2X produces 625hp while the EV3X generates the same power as the Edition 1. Both EV2X and EV3X have an estimated 300 miles of range. The cheapest Hummer EV2 produces 625hp and comes with an estimated 250 mile range.
Visually, the Hummer EV SUV carries the signature styling of the vehicle made famous by the US armed force. With a much-evolved appearance, the SUV comes with a wide front profile holding LED daytime running lights, LED headlamps, and Hummer lettering.
The Hummer EV SUV gets flared front and rear fenders, squared wheel-arches, boxy design, and a squared hood with removable roof panels. At the rear, the SUV is packed with a short cargo bed as well as an optional MultiPro tailgate which you can flip and fold to create a work table, steps to climb inside, or as a loading deck.
The all-electric GMC Hummer is said to compete with Tesla Cybertruck, Rivian R1S, and R1T.
