2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup Range Possibly Leaked39
The real-world range of the upcoming 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup has potentially leaked online via the latest update for the MyChevy smartphone app.
A Facebook user shared the following screenshot of the MyChevy app (below), which displays the real-world, EPA-certified range estimates of both the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV, as well as the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV, which stand at 259 miles and 247 miles, respectively. Listed above the two Chevy EVs in the app is the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup, along with an apparent range estimate pegging the vehicle at 334 miles of range at a 100 percent battery charge.
It’s worth noting that this range estimate does not come from the EPA, so this isn’t an official rating, however the two range estimates for the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV and Chevy Bolt EUV displayed in the app are identical to their respective EPA-estimated figures. Additionally, 334 miles of range is a realistic real-world range figure for the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup, as General Motors said previously the vehicle would have 350+ miles of range based on its own estimates. It’s also worth noting that only the First Edition model will be available for the 2022 model year, which has a 1,000 horsepower tri-motor powertrain and weighs over 9,000 pounds – factors that may cause the real-world range to fall beneath GM’s own 350-mile estimate.
The 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup will enter production at the GM Factory Zero plant in Michigan later this year. Pre-production of early build examples of the vehicle began at the facility earlier this month. Pricing for the First Edition model that will enter production this year starts at $112,595, although this version of the truck sold out 10 minutes after the order books opened last October.
GM has received around 10,000 pre-orders for the GMC Hummer EV so far, although not all of these non-binding, $100 deposits were for the First Edition model. Lesser trim levels will include the tri-motor Hummer EV3X, dual-motor Hummer EV2X and the entry-level Hummer EV2. The EV3X will enter production in the Fall of 2022, followed by the EV2X in Spring 2023 and finally the EV2 in Spring 2024.

If EVs are to become mainstream, they will have to shed the weight. It’s keeping their range down.
In the case of the HummerEv the weight is only a small part of the problem with range, the bigger part is the rolling resistance with those tires, and awful aerodynamics, which are the main forces that work against this vehicle when it comes to range. You realize once weight is moving, it’s much less of a factor than the other 2 forces acting against the vehicle. For the Silverado EV GM needs to do these things for it to be a success.
*Improve aerodynamics (top and bottom of vehicle)
*Improve rolling resistance
*Improve powertrain effeciency
*Reduce Mass (should be easy, get rid of all the off road goodies heavy skid plates, and this massive tires and wheels)
A more street tire is available as an option. It’s just that they’ve only shown Hummers with the off road package. I can see the Hummer getting to ~350 miles with street tires.
Hummer Ev Edition 1 was advertised originally with 35″ off road tires and 350+ miles of range, GM missed their target by 5% which is not the end of the world, but is a miss.
Then you would have a Bolt. Trucks need to be strong to carry heavy loads and heavy to tow trailers, once your trailer out weighs your vehicle safely driving one becomes a challenge. Just ask anybody who runs a 3500 ram what happens to the light weight wheels every 50k miles( the rims break)
This thing was never intended to become mainstream.
Exactly. The Hummer is meant to be exclusive.
I agree with the weight needing to come down. This will happen with much more density from upcoming Battery Tech. Once that happens the savings will allow them to utilize more exotic materials to build cars and make them lighter. Battery Density is the key to BEV’s becoming the Norm for pretty much every Consumers and Super Charging Speed as well.
The writer here does not understand EV’s, having 1000hp in an EV does not hurt range because that extra power is not used in the EPA testing, and the weight is also much less of a factor then the aerodynamics and rolling resistance which are the 2 main factors working against the Hummer EV. I mean 35″ off road tires are your main culprit in the poor range rating (considering battery size), followed close behind by the atrocious aerodynamics (these 2 factors will reverse as speed increases). At highway speeds this thing will be awful, and DC fast charging on a road trip could be more expensive than driving a diesel considering todays charging prices on Electrify America. If you drive 80+ mph, you will go broke on a road trip, because aerodynamic drag gets much worse as speed increases (this is not a linear curve).
Now it’s possible GM is purposely underrating the range, so we should remember that (Porsche and Ford did this on their EV’s) We will need a real world range test performed by an independent outlet to get a real idea of the range. I look forward to Tom Moloughney at InsideEv’s getting a hold of the HummerEV for his 70 mph highway range test which seems to reflect real world range the best.
100% from start to finish. But you spoke truth about the article and used facts so naturally you will be thumbs-downed as is tradition on GMA
I do not mind getting thumbed down, at least I got a reaction so my post had effect. Worse would be no thumbprints at all, nobody read my post, then I am wasting my time.
The problem is most thumbs down only read the name.
ya, that confirms the maturity of many folks on here, yourself included, as over and over I prove you wrong and then you disappear from the thread. Your list of wrongness grows weekly I cannot believe you thought the Z07 would be heavier than the Z51, or that the Z07 had a bigger engine than the Z51, wrong on both accounts, and of course you disappeared from that thread too.
He will disappear again now Donavan
What’s it to you?
Hey Josh I’m back again are not lonely now?
I don’t disappear. I have a life and don’t have to look to forums to make me look important.
But yet you live here like you have no life or any real skills. Most successful people don’t live and lie on the web like you do.
If I don’t reply here it is Friday and I have a life and better things to do than respond to you.
But I’m glad you miss me.
FYI the weight I had was a pre release GM number. It can be possible a car with a different engine and more body work could be heavier. It is just speculation. Some times it is right some times it is wrong.
You did not have a pre release number… there is no such thing. Speculation was always that the Z06 would have a 5.5L DOHC engine with a flat plane crank derived from the C8.R engine, and I even posted on here who helped GM with the design and where they make the parts in their new factory.
Z06 is always about track performance, so light weighting is critical, that is the main reason the N/A engine is better than a supercharged mill. Superchargers not only add the weight of the supercharger and drive, but often require heavier internals, and heavy intercooler package. Supercharged engines also make a lot of extra heat and burn a lot of extra fuel, and this is because to have an output of 650 HP in a supercharged engine the engines thermal output has to be much higher due to the extra power required to drive the supercharger, which for a roots type blower like GM usually uses gets worse with RPM. Roots style blowers work good at low speed which is why they were initially used on 2 stroke diesels. Now roots blowers have improved over the years, but they are still not to the level of efficiency of other types of superchargers, and at high RPM, they really fall off the curve.
Would you just shut up. The number I saw was a speculated number on a web site that is al, it was and it was a possibility.
If it was right great if it was off what ever.
I don’ care about it or you? Never will.
Stop lying you comment all the time daily. It’s just when you are wrong you disappear to save yourself the embarrassment of admitting you are wrong. What a tool.
Back again. You know I don’t care who you are or what you say. You act as if people here value what you say or think.
This is just a freaking Forum that is a blip on the map. Who cares!
Get a life a hole
Say what…9000 lbs ??!
I am happy to admit when I am wrong, because it means I learned something new. It happens daily, believe it or not. Even my kids bust me sometimes as my old memory does not always match reality. I think it’s great that my kids are not afraid to challenge what I say, and smart enough to prove their case when needed, this gives me hope for their future. For me though the goal is always to get the correct information, my ego about being right is less important than taking every lesson I can get. C8.R is right though, this is just a forum and most posters only care about what they think, and not about being correct or making rational sense. Interestingly as I am writing this, C8.R has made 8 comments on this thread, not a single one of them on topic, most insulting, and he says someone else has a mental illness? Hmmm, what’s old old saying about pointing at someone else with 3 fingers pointed back at you… or something like that? I think there was a proverb about this, but that is too deep for here.
You started it brother. I don’t look to you for permission and I really don’t need your approval.
Forums are to share info accurate or speculation both. It is to share ideas that may be offered. You may not always agree but that is just the way it is.
Often I post just my guess on what it may be as often there is no info available on the topic. If you do have good info you don’t have to be an A$$ in sharing it.
As for me not always responding. I don’t look for your response because I really don’t care. I just say what I need to say and move on like most normal people.
It is time you get over the fact that this forum is not here just for you.
It is heavier than the Z51
Based on Dry weight between the models the Z06 is only slightly heavier.
How many have you put on the scale? Car and driver says their Z51 weighs 3689, and Motortrend 3587, both put them on scales.
That’s not dry weight.
The z06 is actually 30 kg heavier based on what i heard.
People can downvote if they want what’s it matter to you? Are you one of those people that needs someone to tell you good job when you do something? So weird you care so much what complete strangers on the internet think.
Steve it is a mental illness.
It really is isn’t lol.
AeroDrag=Velocity cubed times the COD( coefficient iof drag)
Also EPA mileage is calculated by a bizarre driving method of 45-60 mph sprints and coasting which slightly negates the horrible aerodynamics of trucks
Hey I’m back. I did not vanish.
I want to know this vehicles charge curve.
Yeah that is very important.
Yes and gm stock went up 19 cents. Tesla to the moon. Useful vehicles are better than Ranger sized electric toys for 120 Grand.
Best hummer was the H1 period.
What kind or recovery strap are you going to need for 9000 lb block of lithium, (more like 10000 when loaded), stuck in the mud? Is ‘G little m’ going to come and get you and bring you to a specialized dealership when it throws a code while you are out tearing up some trails in your irony mobile? Better yet, what’s it going to do to your driveway. Kudos on the range but how long to charge? About that range, is that highway and city or off road, high energy use rock crawling? What kind of braking distance on that bad boy? Questions, questions and never any answers.
Plenty of answers if you actually bother to look. There are HD trucks that are on the roads now and in peoples driveways with no issues at all.
Specialized dealership? All the GMC dealerships that sell the Hummer. I mean ALL of them. Can’t sell it if you don’t have the equipment. It’s part of the deal.
Range won’t suffer that much in driving either.
