The GMC Hummer EV Pickup Edition 1 was initially expected to last for just one model year, serving only as a limited-run launch version of the truck. However, GM Authority has now learned that production of the GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 may last into the 2023 model year.
While GM has yet to confirm how many orders for the Hummer EV Pickup Edition 1 it has, various sources indicate that number is around 1,200 units. GM has sold 371 examples of the Hummer EV in the first six months of this year, plus one single unit in Q4 2021, so it seems as though the automaker still has hundreds of Edition 1 vehicles to build before it switches to production of the other 2023 GMC Hummer EV Pickup trim levels.
GM has said it would ramp up production at the Factory Zero plant in the second half of the year, however it still seems unlikely GM will be able to produce the remaining Edition 1 models this year. The plant was also taken offline for upgrades on June 27th and won’t come back online until July 22nd.
All GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 models come identically equipped with an Interstellar White paint and a unique Lunar Horizon interior with bronze accents. All of these vehicles also come standard with a 1,000 horsepower tri-motor powertrain, as well an Extreme Off-Road Package with 18-inch wheels and 35-inch tires, Adaptive Air Suspension, the GMC MultiPro tailgate, 800-volt DC fast charging and the latest version of GM’s Super Cruise hands-free driving system.
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 the 2022 model year started at $110,295.
