GMC debuts its all-electric Hummer EV supertruck

GMC's 1000HP Hummer EV is an 'all-electric supertruck'

SUV versions of the HUMMER EV will be added at an unspecified date.

The Hummer EV will go up for pre-order next year, with deliveries slated for 2022.

General Motors has finally unveiled the Hummer EV pickup truck in all its glory.

The GMC Hummer EV.

Reservations are now being accepted for the Edition 1 with a $100 deposit. It will launch with a fully-loaded Edition 1 model priced at $112,595 that has all-wheel-drive, three electric motors good for a combined 1,000 hp and the ability to accelerate to 60 miles per hour in around three seconds.

The Hummer EV will use Ultium batteries (a GM exclusive) and have an estimated range of over 350 miles (563 km) per charge. Industry-first technology mechanically switches the batteries from parallel to series mode during charging, which makes HUMMER EV compatible with the fastest 350 kW DC fast chargers, enabling almost 100 miles of range in 10 minutes of charging6.

GMC is billing the HUMMER EV as "The World's First All-Electric Supertruck", but Tesla's Texas-built Cybertruck could beat it to market at a starting price of $49,990 for a dual motor truck with 300 miles of range and a tri-motor model with 500 miles of range for $69,990. They offer exceptional strength and flexibility to optimize maneuverability with the HUMMER EV's unprecedented off-road capability, including scaling 18-inch verticals and driving through water that is more than 2 feet deep.

Other unique goodies are available on the Edition 1, which as an "Infinity Roof" with modular, transparent sky panels, unique badging in the interior, and a white exterior.

GMC HUMMER EV's design cues will be bold and futuristic, featuring carefully executed and clever details such as the distinctive "H" motif seen in a number of elements.

After the Edition 1 rolls out next year, the Hummer EV3X will be released in the fall of 2022. The electric SUV is adequately sized for a successor to the H3, promises three-second 0-60mph performance and more than 350 miles of range between charges. Cheeky. But there's still a lot of twist; the top model's motor torque is still said to deliver 1,100lb ft, and that's instantly available. With the Hummer EV this would, of course, also equate to better driving off-road and a "crab crawl" feature for low speeds. The range is completed by the base Hummer EV2 variant that is slated for debut in the spring of 2024, also with a two-motor, 480 hp/10,033 Nm powertrain and 400 km of range.

The EV2X is still quite robust with features, with still having features like Crabwalk, 4-wheel steering, and an adaptive air suspension system that allows the truck to navigate tricky, off-road terrain.

The Hummer EV2X starts at $89,995.

For its EV foray, GM also agreed to pick up an 11% stake in Nikola Corporation (NASDAQ: NKLA) in early September, but the closing of the deal remains delayed in the aftermath of short seller allegations against Nikola.
