Not only have reservations for the GMC Hummer EV pickup truck and SUV family reached 90,000 reservations, but the brand has gone ahead and closed the books on customer reservations. GMC is currently evaluating when/if Hummer EV reservations will open back up in the future. While production volume and timing remains undisclosed, GMC tells me that order banks are filled up to 2024.
GMC Hummer EV: Details
GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 pickup truck deliveries “officially” began with just a few days to spare at the end of the 2021 calendar year. 371 deliveries took place in the first half of 2022, each one of these electric super trucks priced over $112,000 USD. 0-60 is registered at a scant 3.0 seconds when engaged in Watts To Freedom (WTF) mode.
The 1,000 horsepower GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 pickup truck, classified as a DOT Class 2b vehicle with the GMC Sierra 2500 HD based on its gross vehicle weight rating, is currently rated to carry 1,300 pounds, while towing comes in at 7,500 pounds. Those are about the figures of a GMC Canyon midsize truck, but we’re told these numbers are coming in as “conservative” and future variants are expected to provide more capability in this space.
Further GMC Hummer EV variants will all slot under the Edition 1, and include the upcoming EV3X, EV2X, and EV2. The EV2 will be the most affordable trim level, but isn’t expected to arrive until at least late next year as a 2024 model year vehicle.
The GMC Hummer EV SUV Edition 1 – fully reserved – is also scheduled to launch in fall of 2023 as a 2024 model year vehicle. While the SUV is still a bit out, it’s predicted that the SUV variant will eventually outsell the pickup truck. All GMC Hummer EV variants will be built at the GM Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant, which has been rebranded as “Factory Zero” as part of a record $2 billion renovation.
Recently, GMC announced that “Extract Mode” is now available via OTA update to the Hummer EV, which raises the vehicle several inches to improve ground clearance and to better conquer obstacles. Meanwhile, the United States Army is currently evaluating the Hummer EV for official use, while the electric truck will continue its military pedigree as it will be available in the upcoming Call of Duty video game. The Hummer EV lineup also received a recent price adjustment, as even a truck this expensive can’t seem to escape widespread inflation and record commodity pricing.
