A GMC Hummer EV Pickup Edtion 1 sold for a significant $286,000 at the Mecum Glendale auction in Arizona over the weekend.
This Hummer EV Edtion 1 was offered with no reserve price, meaning there was no minimum price that the seller required bidding to reach in order for the vehicle to sell. That said, this vehicle probably would have had no problem meeting a pre-set reserve price, as demand for the sold-out Hummer EV is clearly quite high going by this car’s rather absurd $286,000 selling price.
As we noted last week, this GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 is one of only a small number of Hummer EV models that have been built at GM’s Factory Zero plant since the vehicle officially entered production late last year. All 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup Edition 1 models come identically equipped with an Interstellar White exterior and a Lunar Horizon white leather interior with bronzed Edition 1 badging. The 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 range sits at an EPA-certified 329 miles. Prices for this range-topping trim started at $110,295, but they are going for much more than this on the second-hand market. Earlier this month, we found a private listing for a 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup Edition 1 that listed the vehicle for sale at a frankly ridiculous $325,000, so it’s clear electric vehicle fans are willing to shell out big bucks for a Hummer EV.
