General Motors has confirmed the estimated real-world driving range of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup Edition 1.
The 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 will be able to travel up to 329 miles on a full charge, GM announced this week. For those who may need a reminder, the Hummer EV Edition 1 features a 1,000 horsepower tri-motor powertrain and an ~200 kWh Ultium lithium-ion battery. With ‘Watts to Freedom’ mode engaged, this model variant will be able to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in roughly three seconds.

|Battery Capacity (kWh)||About 200||135|
|Estimated Driving Range (miles / km)||329 / 529||314 / 505|
|Estimated 0-60 MPH (seconds)||3.0||3.0|

As we reported previously, a leak from the MyChevy smartphone app appeared to indicate the range of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 would sit at 334 miles. It’s now clear that this figure was off slightly, although it was closer to the actual range figure than GM’s initial estimate of 350 miles that it shared when the vehicle first debuted earlier this year. It’s worth noting the 329-mile figure is not an Environmental Protection Agency estimate and is rather a GM-estimated range figure. It’s unclear if an EPA estimate for the Hummer EV will be released in the future, as the Hummer EV has a GVWR of over 8,500 lbs and therefore does not have to be rated by the EPA.
The real-world driving range of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 compares favorably with the Rivian R1T, which is set to be the Hummer’s most direct rival once customer deliveries begin later this year. The 2022 Rivian R1T has an EPA-estimated driving range of 314 miles when equipped with the mid-range 135 kWh battery. Rivian will eventually release a 180 kWh long-range battery as well, which is expected to give the R1T about 400 miles of range on a full charge.
|Availability||Spring 2024||Spring 2023||Fall 2022||Fall 2021|
|Power (hp / kW)||625 / 466||625 / 466||800 / 597||1,000 / 746|
|Wheel torque (lb.-ft. / Nm)||7,400 / 10,033||7,400 / 10,033||9,500 / 12,880||11,500 / 15,591|
|Estimated range (mi / km)||250+ / 400+||300+ / 480+||300+ / 480+||329 / 529|
The GMC Hummer EV Pickup will also be offered in lesser trim levels, including 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. It’s possible the EV3X or EV2X could offer more range than the First Edition, as they will be less powerful and thus more efficient, although it’s hard to say at this point seeing as GM has not disclosed the size of the battery that these trim levels will feature.
