Now that some of the initial GMC Hummer EV hype has calmed down, the company invited us (Derek Mau on assignment) for some quality time with their new electric monster truck. However, the images shown here are of a prototype that’s missing a few details like anchor points, power outlets, mounting points for accessories, and a few other details.
This is a detailed gallery of many details that may have been overlooked by others. There are SO MANY “Hummer EV” badges, it’s easy to lose count.
Take a look at all these details. The Hummer EV rides on 8-lug hubs, which suggests that it’s a heavy duty truck. GMC has not officially revealed payload, towing, or curb weight specs and ratings. We do not know exactly what this pickup truck is capable of. Also the Hummer EV has a short 5-foot long bed, which is not indicative of heavy duty truck capability. Naturally, this new electric truck will have a hefty curb weight because it’s carrying a 200 kWh battery. This is a battery has twice the capacity of a current Tesla Model X SUV.
We know that the Hummer EV Edition 1 is targeted to arrive in the fall of 2021 as a 2022 model. Launch of the re-imagined Hummer begins with the most expensive and most optioned Edition 1 trim level at a princely sum of $112,595 (before destination charges, any fees, and taxes). That six-figure price tag gets you three battery-powered electric motors that deliver 1,000 horsepower and approximately 1,000 to 1,100 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels. GMC claims the batteries are good for more than 350+ miles of range on a single charge. The charging rate on the fastest Level-3 charger is stated at 100 miles of range gained per 10 minutes of charging.
Here is a detailed look at the interior.
The top-of-the-line EV pickup will also be fitted with Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving mode, a wide 13.4-inch infotainment display, a configurable 12.3-inch digital instrument display, a power tonneau cover, and adjustable air suspension that can allow almost 16 inches of ground clearance and nearly 50 degrees of approach angle.
