This promotional video, entitled ‘Ready To Roll’ shows GM Factory Zero employees assembling the GMC Hummer EV Pickup Edition 1 as it rolls down the assembly line at the newly renovated facility. This is the second promo video that was released in recent weeks showing the GMC Hummer EV Pickup on the line at Factory Zero after a similar video was posted to the official General Motors channel earlier this month.
Every GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 will be identical, featuring a white exterior and a unique Lunar Horizon interior upholstery color with bronzed accents. The Hummer EV Edition 1 also comes standard with GM’s hands-free Super Cruise driving assistant and 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.
The first GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 rolled off the assembly line at Factory Zero on December 17th, 2021. The rights to purchase the first example, which is tagged with VIN 001, were sold to NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick at Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale 2020 auction for $2.5 million. It’s not clear when Mr. Hendrick will take delivery of this first production model. Customer deliveries of the first Hummer EV production models are expected to ramp up in 2022.
