The 2022 GMC Hummer EV pickup made its grand debut last October as an all-new, battery-powered super truck. Now, we got up close and personal with the very-first Hummer EV pickup produced, VIN 001, at the ongoing Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, capturing it in the following Live Photo Gallery just prior to its stint on the block.
Like the rest of the initial production run, the GMC Hummer EV pickup VIN 001 is an Edition 1 model, which means it’s the range-topping, limited edition model. It comes with a few unique bits and pieces to help it stand out from the rest of the lineup, including exclusive interior badging, the inclusion of the Extreme Off Road Package and Transparent Sky Panels as standard. Other trims offer these two latter items as optional extras.
What’s more, every Hummer EV Edition 1 is covered in the white paint seen here on this Hummer EV pickup VIN 001. Up front, we find the new signature grille-turned-light bar stretched across the nose, which includes a prominently-backlit Hummer script on the six inner slats, plus H-shaped lighting graphics bookending the inner lighting elements. The lower fascia is finished in silver with two tow black hooks, plus fog lamps in the corners of the black bumper.
The profile reveals the GMC Hummer EV pickup features an imposing stance and running gear, the former of which is adjustable thanks to Air Ride Suspension components that can raise the Hummer EV’s ride height by nearly two inches. The wheels are made from aluminum, and come with a multi-spoke design that recalls earlier Hummer models, while adding a dash of modernity to the mix. These units have a bronze beauty ring that is exclusive to the Edition 1 model. Wrapping the alloys is a set of 35-inch-OD Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires.
In back, the Hummer EV pickup sports tail lights that mimic the lighting signatures up front, while the GMC MultiPro tailgate adds further functionality with six different configurable positions. Also notice the branded bed treatment with the Hummer EV logo etched into the center of the bed liner. The front of the box features three cutouts for motorcycle or bike tires.
Like all Edition 1 models, GMC Hummer EV pickup VIN 001 is equipped with a three-motor powertrain, which throws down with 1,000 horsepower – enough to send the super truck from a standstill to 60 mph in a mere three seconds. DC fast charging adds about 100 miles of range in 10 minutes. A full charge nets 350 miles or range.
The 2022 GMC Hummer EV pickup Edition 1 is priced at $112,595, with the first customer-bound units arriving in the Fall. This particular model, VIN 001, is expected to fetch quite a bit more at auction.
