General Motors confirmed the Hummer EV SUV would introduce the Power Station system following its debut last weekend and we can now confirm the Hummer EV pickup truck will also offer this feature from the 2024 model year onward.
The Power Station system will be available in the Hummer EV pickup in the dual-motor EV2X trim level, as well as the more powerful tri-motor EV3X trim level. It will not be available on the entry-level EV2 trim.
GM says the Power Station system enables generator functionality at 120v/25A/3kW and also has the ability to charge other EVs at 240v/25A/6kW. The system could be handy to power tools or equipment when out on backcountry trails or when camping. It might also be useful during a power outage to power appliances or a space heater, for example.
“The new available Power Station generator offers significant external powering capabilities to power off-road adventures and more,” GMC said in a statement. “With enhanced vehicle hardware, the Hummer EV SUV can jump charge another electric vehicle at 240v/25A/6kW and power a variety of equipment and accessories at 120v/25A/3kW.”
The Ford F-150 currently offers a similar integrated generator called the Pro Power Onboard. The Ford generator is available in either 2 kW or 2.4 kW variants, while the F-150 Hybrid has an optional 7.2 kW generator. The 2 and 2.4 kW Pro Power Onboard generators have two 120-volt outlets, while the 7.2 kW system has four 120-volt outlets and one 240-volt outlet. The Pro Power Onboard generator is a $995 option in standard F-150 models and $750 in the F-150 Hybrid.
GMC has not said how much it will charge for the Power Station system in the Hummer EV pickup and SUV. More information on the generator should become available in the lead up to its market release in two years.
