This holiday season, the first electric Hummers will be delivered to their new owners. According to Autoblog, GMC’s Duncan Aldred has stated that deliveries of the Hummer Edition 1—the all-electric truck variant that costs more than $112,000—will begin in December. The meeting also revealed that Edition 1 has an EPA range of 329 miles rather than 350, as originally anticipated by the automaker.
GMC’s all-electric 2020 Siera has 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 foot-pounds of torque from its three motors, allowing it to accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour in 3 seconds.
The truck can tow 7,500 pounds and carry up to 1,300 pounds. It was built on the Ultium battery pack platform GM developed to electrify dozens of models across its brands in the future.
The Edition 1 Hummer EV will be one of the first electric trucks on the market, along with Rivian’s R1T, when it begins shipping out in September. Tesla is also working on an electric Cybertruck, but the company delayed its release until 2022 in August. Autoblog claims that more than 80% of Hummer EV orders are for Edition 1, although additional versions of the electrified vehicle will continue to arrive through 2023. Some of those vehicles will cost less and have greater ranges. GMC will begin delivering SUVs based on the Hummer EV in 2023.
