General Motors Truck Company a.k.a GMC has come up in the EV competition with its on all-electric avatar last year by revealing the Hummer EV pickup truck. The American carmaker has extended its electric vehicle line up by incorporating the new EV SUV, which is essentially an SUV version of GMC’s Hummer pickup. The production of the first Hummer EV SUV will commence in two years. The vehicle made its debut in a new commercial film that aired during the NCAA’s Final Four which was narrated by LeBron James.
The GMC Hummer EV SUV will cost around $105,995. On the other hand, the EV2x and EV3x versions of the EV SUV will cost $89,995 and $99,995, respectively. Both the models will be available in spring 2023. However, the base model – EV2 is priced at $79,995 slated to hit the market by 2024.
The carmaker claims the most affordable Hummer EV SUV model will offer a range of at least 402 km and up to 616 bhp. They will also offer an additional extreme off-road package on the Hummer EV SUV, except the base model.
Visually speaking, the new Hummer EV SUV replicates to its pickup model, whereas the former gets a shorter wheelbase along with a spare wheel mounted on the back. The customer will be offered with the choice to equip the vehicle for the optimal driving range or maximum off-road capability. It gets 22-inch wheels, side steps, floor liners and much more.
Duncan Aldred, Global Vice President of Buick and GMC said, “The GMC Hummer EVs were envisioned to be the most capable and compelling electric super trucks ever. 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.”
Just like pickup sibling, the newly unveiled 2024 Hummer SUV will be launched with a high-powered, fully-loaded version with up to 482 km of range. The company says Edition 1 will deliver up to 818 bhp. The electric SUV equipped with an off-road package will cost just over $110,000.
