After announcing the vehicle at the beginning of the year, this week GMC officially unveiled the new all-electric Hummer. Marketed as the "world's first all-electric supertruck," the 2022 Hummer EV is set to go into production in late 2021, with prices starting at $112,595.
While GMC has yet to provide the torque output, we know that the Hummer EV is powered by three electric motors that deliver 1,000 horsepower. A 24-module Ultium battery pack then provides the truck with an estimated range of 350 miles, while 800-volt fast charging up to 350 kW gives it an additional 100 miles with a single 10-minute charge.
The electric Hummer is primed and ready for off-road adventure with its fully independent suspension and adaptive air shocks. This allows for a height adjustment range of six inches, and when in max-height off-road mode, you gain two more inches of ground clearance. Furthermore, Extract Mode lifts the vehicle six inches higher than the default setting.
The first version of the Hummer EV, the Edition 1, comes standard with 35-inch mud terrain tires. Paired with the suspension, the truck boasts a fording depth of two feet and is capable of climbing over obstacles up to 18 inches in height. Customers can also opt for 37-inch aftermarket tires to further beef up the off-roading capabilities.
Inside the Hummer EV you will find a 13.4-inch infotainment screen and 12.3-inch instrument display. The vehicle comes standard with clear, removable roof panels that can be stowed in the front cargo area.
Pre-orders for the 2022 Hummer EV have already begun, ahead of the production launch in late next year.
