After months of hype, the GMC Hummer EV is finally here, dropping cover in a livestream debut event on October 20th. With the veil now lifted, fresh details on the all-electric off-roader are starting to materialize, including the markets where it will be sold. Now, General Motors has confirmed with GM Authority that the new GMC Hummer EV will be offered in the Middle East.
News that the Hummer EV will be sold in the Middle East region comes as the only official confirmation thus far that the battery-powered utility will be sold outside the United States and Canada.
It’s currently unclear when the new Hummer will launch in the Middle East, as well as which trims will be offered. That said, the first customer-bound units are set to hit U.S. dealers in the Fall of 2021 for the 2022 model year.
First out the gates will be the top-trim Hummer EV Edition 1, which comes with three electric motors producing 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 pound-feet of torque, propelling the pickup to 60 mph in around 3 seconds and ranging around 350 miles between plugs. The Edition 1 also features exclusive bronze wheels and trim. Pricing is set at $112,595. The Hummer EV3X arrives in the Fall of 2022, while the Hummer EV2X and Hummer EV2 arrive in the Spring of 2023 and the Spring of 2024, respectively.
Up north, the Hummer EV won’t arrive on Canadian soil before the Fall of 2022 as a 2023-model-year vehicle. For now, Canadian buyers won’t have access to the Edition 1 trim. However, the Canadian-spec Hummer EV3X will have the same 1,000-horsepower drive setup as the U.S. Edition 1, while the U.S.-spec EV3X comes with 800 horsepower and 9,500 pound-feet of torque.
