General Motors has confirmed initial customer deliveries of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup Edition 1 will begin in December.
Production of the battery-electric pickup truck began at the GM Factory Zero plant earlier this month, with GM marking the facility’s opening by inviting President Joe Biden to tour the plant floor and test out the GMC Hummer EV on its grounds.
While the GMC Hummer EV will be available as both a pickup truck and an SUV, the latter will not enter production for another year or so, with customer deliveries of that model expected to commence in early 2023. The GMC Hummer EV SUV will be built alongside the pickup variant at the Factory Zero plant.
In addition to the two GMC Hummer EV model variants, Factory Zero will also produce the Cruise Origin robotaxi and the future Chevy Silverado EV. The plant will employ around 2,200 people once it’s up and running at full capacity by mid-decade.
The first examples of the GMC Hummer EV Pickup to roll off the line at Factory Zero will all be Edition 1 models, which will be identically equipped with a white exterior, white Lunar Horizon interior and bronzed “Edition 1” interior badging. The Hummer EV Edition 1 also comes standard with the Extreme Off-Road Package, which adds 18-inch wheels, 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires, underbody skid plates, frame rail rock sliders and underbody cameras.
Power in the Hummer EV Edition 1 comes from an Ultium Drive tri-motor powertrain producing 1,000 horsepower, which is fed by a ~200 kWh Ultium lithium-ion battery pack. This gives the vehicle the ability to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in about three seconds, while the estimated range sits at a GM-estimated 329 miles. Prices for this range-topping trim level start at $110,295, however all units have now been spoken for.
