2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup Will Not Come With Standard Spare Tire11
The 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup will not come with a standard spare tire, GM Authority can confirm.
Despite the fact that it is being marketed as a capable off-roader, the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup will not feature a standard spare tire and will instead ship with a tire inflator kit. This is a peculiar decision on GM’s part, as getting a flat tire far off the beaten path could leave GMC Hummer EV Pickup owners stranded.
On the plus side, GM has developed a ‘Bed-Mounted Vertical Tire Carrier‘ for the GMC Hummer EV Pickup, which allows for up to two full-size spare tires to be mounted in the vehicle’s bed. This is optional equipment, however, and will not be included as standard with the vehicle. This design also takes up quite a bit of space on the pickup’s bed, although it seems as though it can be easily unbolted and removed for daily commutes. Pricing for the optional Bed-Mounted Vertical Tire Carrier comes to $1,995.
The available Enhanced Off-Road Package for the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup also includes the Bed-Mounted Vertical Tire Carrier. In addition to the spare tire carrier, the off-road-focused equipment package also includes an 18-inch by 9-inch Black Aluminum Spare Wheel with machine Accents, a Spare Mud Terrain Tire, a Spare Tire Jack and Tool Kit and an Off-Road Recovery kit. The Enhanced Off-Road Package can’t be combined with the optional Power-Retractable Tonneau Cover, as the included spare tire carrier would prevent the tonneau cover from closing properly.
The GMC Hummer EV will be offered with multiple drivetrain configurations, although the range-topping First Edition model is the most powerful. The First Edition’s tri-motor powertrain is good for 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 pound-feet of wheel torque, enabling a zero to 60 mph time of about three seconds. Under the skin is the dedicated GM BT1 electric vehicle platform, with GM’s Ultium battery tech and Ultium Drive motors providing motivation. Production will take place at the GM Detroit-Hamtramck facility in Michigan, which was recently renamed Factory Zero to denote its status as an EV-only plant.

Does it need a spare tire when it will never go out of it’s hiding spot in the shed/garage… Once again only the rich will have one.. Give it to a farmer and we’ll test it like you should…
Most “off road” trucks don’t have usable spares today. People lift and slap 35s or 37s on it which are too large to fit in the spare tire well and at the same time they don’t want to give up the bed space (plus they’re too cheap to buy another wheel and tire), so they just ignore the problem.
I’ve got one on my wrangler and I run 35s. I got the hinge gate reinforcement though.
The thing weighs 9,000 pounds and doesn’t even have a spare tire? This is not the future. This is not green. It’s a ridiculous monster that nobody needs. It literally helps nothing and will only be a menace on the road. I cannot fathom how gm deluded themselves into believing it is environmentally responsible to build this thing.
Your comment makes no sense at all.
Deleting a spare tire reduces factory tire consumption by 20%, eliminates steel needed to make an extra wheel, and the energy needed to drag it around for the lifetime of the vehicle. Convenient, no, green, yes.
The vehicle is simply dumb.
And how generous of gm to exclude the potential life saving safety of a spare tire on a $110K nearly 5-ton “off road vehicle”. Though it is understandable since the weight of these tires and wheels alone might be enough to crush or maim many of this vehicle’s potential buyers. From a legal standpoint, gm may actually carry less liability letting owners get stranded without a spare and bank on it that they’ll be close enough to civilization to have sufficient cell signal or Onstar to save them.
Which only serves to point up how senseless this vehicle is, supporting Ci2Eye’s assertions. After all, what a greener, more equitable planet really needs is its very first elite $110K, 9000 pound electric loaded weapon capable of achieving 60 mph in three seconds while flattening everything in its privileged owner’s blurred path until one of its massive tires goes flat. Save the Planet and all that, yo!
A vehicle without a spare tire should realize a weight savings. This Hummer has no spare and still weighs an astounding 9,000 pounds.
A 9,000 pound EV is not green. It’s a massive grotesque energy hog. It doesn’t have an onboard engine to propel it but the amount of energy it will suck from the grid greatly exceeds what it should if it had a more modest curb weight. Our National energy supply still comes largely from fossil fuels so anything consuming so much energy to move a person from Point A to Point B is not green.
Right, it’s not green, so people should keep buying the 8,000 lb gas/diesels they do today.
Am I Wrong or is that second photo Fake/Photoshopped? The tread of that tire 100% looks like a BFG KO2. That is not a Duratrac “Diamond” tread pattern. Did they edit the words “Wrangler” and “Goodyear” onto a KO2?
