GMC Unveils Hummer EV SUV, Release Date ‘Early 2023’
GMC announced its 2024 GMC Hummer electric vehicle SUV during the NCAA Final Four on Saturday, with the new EV set to join the Hummer pickup.
The first GMC Hummer EV SUV model is set to debut in early 2023, with all versions of the vehicle built on the company’s next-gen Ultium Platform.
“The GMC HUMMER EVs were envisioned to be the most capable and compelling electric supertrucks ever,” said Duncan Aldred, global vice president of Buick and GMC, in a statement.
“The new HUMMER EV SUV is the next chapter, which will offer many options for customers to tailor the truck to their lifestyles, while continuing to encourage them to forge new paths with zero emissions.”
GMC says the Hummer EV SUV will have up to 830 horsepower and up to 11,500 lb-ft of torque, with 0-60 mph times of roughly 3.5 seconds. The vehicle will have “best in class off-road proportions”, will have the next version of Super Cruise driver-assist tech, plus also be able to “crab walk”.
Production will start in early 2023 for the Edition 1, with a starting price of $105,595 USD, while the Extreme Off-Road Package will start at $110,595 USD.
The cheapest GMC EV SUV will be the EV2, coming in at $79,995 USD and availability pegged for Spring 2024, three years from now. There will be five versions of the Hummer EV SUV available, ranging from $79,995 USD up to $110,595 USD.
According to GMC’s website, the Hummer EV Edition 1 reservations are “full”, with no indication on how many vehicles were available to reserve.
Here’s the promo clip narrated by NBA superstar LeBron James:
For $95 LESS than the $GM Hummer EV, you can get a $TSLA Cybertruck with TWICE the range, a THIRD motor that gets you to 0-60 in LESS than 2.9 sec, and full self-driving locked in for LIFE. All delivered to you TWO years sooner. Did I miss anything? Oh yea, it’s bulletproof. 😂 pic.twitter.com/BAeeKCmAoq

The GMC Hummer EV SUV, and the Hummer pickup, are adding yet another entry to the EV pickup and SUV scene, however, it remains to be seen if the American automaker can deliver the new vehicles on time. Both models will compete with Tesla’s Cybertruck, set to begin production later this year at the company’s Gigafactory in Texas.
