It Only Took Roughly An Hour Before Customers Gobbled Up The Allotment

Hummer EV Edition 1

Immediately following the livestream reveal of the all-new Hummer EV by GMC, the reservation books opened up. Though the official GMC website, customers could choose between four so-far confirmed variants for just $100: the Hummer EV2 (priced at $79,995, available from Spring 2024), the Hummer EV2X (priced at $89,995, available from Spring 2023), the Hummer EV3 (priced at $99,995, available Fall 2022), and the Hummer EV Edition 1 (priced at $112,595, available Fall 2021).

It took roughly an hour before all Edition 1 models were fully reserved, which also means that each and every 2022 model year Hummer EV is currently spoken for.

The 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 will be fully loaded, with a decked-out interior, maxed-out off road hardware and software systems, and three motors producing 250 kW a piece. This translates to1,000 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of wheel torque – suspected to be around 1,000 lb-ft of motor torque.

2022 GMC Hummer EV Specs

The Hummer EV is powered by a 24-module, double-stacked Ultium battery propulsion system. This system features some industry-first technology, including the ability to mechanically switch the batteries from parallel to series mode during charging. This allows the truck to be compatible with the fastest 350 kW DC fast chargers out there.

The three-motor setup found in the 2022 Hummer EV Edition 1 comes as standard with an e4WD system, which includes Adaptive Ride Control. That e4WD system is bolstered by the Hummer EV’s four-wheel steering and torque vectoring capabilities. This of course includes the CrabWalk, which uses rear-steer to articulate by 10 degrees, effectively shortening the wheelbase and reducing the turning radius. The feature will also allow the driver to rotate the truck without the need to drive forwards or backwards.

Also included with the three-motor setup is GMC’s new Watts to Freedom feature, which opens up the Hummer EV’s full accelerative force. When activated, the electric pickup will do 0-60 mph in just 3.0 seconds. Despite the crazy performance, the top-trim Hummer can do over 350 miles on a charge, and can gain almost 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes of 800-volt DC fast charging.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
