The 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup is offered with a long list of optional extras to enhance the battery-driven off-roader’s style and practicality, including the Power Retractable Tonneau Cover feature. Now, we’re taking a closer look at this feature in the following GM Authority Live Photo Gallery.
Captured on the floor of the Las Vegas Convention Center during the recent 2021 SEMA Show, this 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup shows the Power Retractable Tonneau Cover nearly closed atop the pickup’s bed. The cover is composed of horizontal “slats” that run across the width of the bed.
The cover fits neatly across the GMC Hummer’s bed, retracting and extending across the bed from just underneath the truck’s flat rear glass. Although the cover does not completely cover the bed in these photos, the feature will do exactly that when properly closed.
To open or close the GMC Hummer EV’s Power Retractable Tonneau Cover, operators can use two small buttons (one to open, another to close) on the left side of the cover railing.
To note, the Power Retractable Tonneau Cover is not compatible with the GMC Hummer EV’s Vertical Spare Tire Carrier, another optional extra that GM Authority covered previously. Both features occupy the bed, and as a result, the cover is not compatible with the enhanced Accessory Off-Road Package, which includes the spare tire carrier.
The Power Retractable Tonneau Cover is tagged with RPO code 5KM, and is priced at $2,300. To note, Edition 1 models are equipped as standard with a soft-roll-up tonneau cover.
As a reminder, the GMC Hummer EV is also offered in an SUV body style. Both the Hummer EV Pickup and SUV ride atop the GM BT1 all-electric platform, with motivation derived from the GM Ultium Battery and Ultium Drive technologies.
This particular model, the Hummer EV Edition 1, is equipped with the range-topping three-motor powertrain configuration producing 1,000 horsepower, while additional powertrain configurations are also available. Production takes place at the recently opened GM Factory Zero plant (formerly known as GM Detroit-Hamtramck) in Michigan.
