In December, GMC Will Begin Delivering Hummer EVs to Customers
It has an EPA range of 329 miles for the first Edition 1 Hummer electric truck that was released.
New owners will get their hands on one of the first electric Hummers in time for the holiday season. Aldred has announced that delivery of the Hummer Edition 1 – a $112,000 electric vehicle variation — will begin in December, according to Autoblog. The EPA range of Edition 1 has been announced at the conference to be 329 miles, which is a touch lower than the 350 miles the automaker was expecting.
Powered by three motors, GMC’s four-ton electric truck boasts 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 ft/lb of torque, allowing it to accelerate from a standstill to 60 mph in under three seconds. Towing capacity of 7,500 pounds and 1,300-pound payload are also available. Ultium battery pack, GM’s platform for electrifying dozens of vehicles across its brands in the near future, was used to build it.
Next month, the Edition 1 Hummer EV will join Rivian’s R1T in becoming the market’s first all-electric trucks. Electric Cybertrucks are also being developed by Tesla, however they have been delayed until 2022 in August. Autoblog reports that more than 80% of the reservations for the Hummer EV Edition 1 are for the electric vehicle, although additional variants of the car are still expected to be released in 2023. Others will be more affordable and have longer ranges, which is good news for consumers. In 2023, GMC will begin delivering the SUV version of the Hummer EV.
