The first GMC Hummer EV pickup truck could be spotted in the wild in just a few weeks, reports Automotive News. According to the publication, GM announced that deliveries for the fully loaded Hummer EV Edition 1 pickup will begin in December. The automaker also revealed more details about the vehicle’s range and towing capabilities.
Power and Range
The Hummer EV pickup becomes the first vehicle to use GM’s new Ultium Drive system (a combination of electric motors and single-speed transmissions), which promises responsive and smooth performance. The Hummer Edition 1 pickup uses three motors for a GM-estimated 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 pounds-feet of torque. The automaker says the all-electric pickup gets an estimated range of 329 miles.
‘Heavy Duty’ or Just ‘Heavy’?
While it lives up to the “heavy” in that classification, weighing in at 9,046 pounds, the Hummer EV pickup lags behind on the “duty” half of the equation. With a maximum towing capacity of 7,500 pounds and a payload of 1,300 pounds, the battery-powered Hummer can’t match the ratings of traditional HD pickups. The 2022 Ram 2500 gets a maximum 20,000-pound towing capacity, the Ford F-250 tows up to 24,200 pounds, and the Chevy Silverado 2500 can pull up to 18,500 pounds.
Although it won’t out-tow or out-haul those trucks, the Hummer EV will likely cream them in a drag race: GM estimates the Edition 1 will sprint from 0-60 mph in just 3.0 seconds thanks to an aerodynamic “launch mode.”
Pricing and Upcoming Models
Reservations for the Hummer EV Edition 1 pickup — priced at a whopping $112,595 (including destination) — are all accounted for, but lesser trims and a Hummer EV SUV will follow. In addition to the Edition 1, the Hummer EV pickup will offer a three-motor 3X model ($99,995), a two-motor 2X ($89,995) and a base 2 ($79,995), which are all expected to arrive between spring 2023 and spring 2024.
