Per previous GM Authority coverage, the first 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV Edition 1 ever produced recently sold at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction on January 28th, 2023. Now, the very same Hummer EV SUV unit could soon be available for purchase once again.
Originally selling for $500,000, the company that bought the Hummer EV SUV allegedly wants the off-road supertruck to go to a proper enthusiast, according to a post on HummerChat.com. As such, it may be available for purchase once again at the upcoming Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach (April 2023) or Las Vegas (June 2023) auctions.
As a reminder, the first initial auction of the first production GMC Hummer EV SUV saw all its proceeds donated towards Tread Lightly!, a non-profit organization that focuses on promoting outdoor ethics in order to balance the needs of outdoor enthusiasts with the need to maintain healthy ecosystems and thriving populations of fish and wildlife.
As an Edition 1 example, this Hummer EV SUV unit is draped in the exclusive Moonshot Green Matte paint and features the Infinity Roof feature, with removable and transparent Sky Panels that can be stored in the eTrunk up front. On the inside, the electric SUV is finished in the Lunar Shadow interior theme, complemented by Tech Bronze accents.
As for powertrain specifications, the Hummer EV SUV Edition 1 is actually down on power as compared to the Hummer EV Pickup Edition 1, as the all-electric SUV develops a maximum output of “only” 830 horsepower, but still offers 11,500 pound-feet of wheel torque thanks to the GM Ultium Drive motors and GM Ultium batteries.
Under the skin, the Hummer EV SUV rides on the GM’s dedicated “Ulti-body” electric BT1 platform, which also underpins the upcoming Chevy Silverado EV and GMC Sierra EV pickup trucks, albeit as a different, “narrow-body” version.
