First 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV Possibly Heading To Auction Again7
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.

Melt it down, recycle it and make something that’s worth having.
3 Tesla 3s. And a couple extra batteries. Looks like Bill is looking for job security.
No id love to work on those remote control cars and charge you exponentially more, more the merrier. We all have our right to choose what we want. You can rationalize anything in life you want. How is that Tesla resale value treating you rite now. Now think, if Tesla is top of the line and its used prices are plummeting like they are, what are other so to speak not top of the line evs gonna do? As all good mechanics say you can pay me now or pay me later but one way or another your gonna pay me, now only thing is how much and how often.
I don’t have a Tesla right now. You will need to be more than a mechanic to work on them. Fortunately, there isn’t that much to go wrong with them. With one pedal driving you will have a hard time getting to work the breaks. We will need tire changers though.
As i was taught and truly believe, a great mechanic can work on and fix anything, and i do mean anything. Dont sell a great mechanic short. I bet you think you have to be a technician to work on a Tesla i reckon? Technician is just a fancy word that means you were taught to work on one area of something. You see a great mechanic is not only a mechanic, he or she has to be knowledgeable in many trades, electrician, plummer, Hvac, and an IT tech to a certain degree. Also i have looked at and worked on Tesla brakes already, its still has hydraulic brakes on it. A person who is very knowledgeable in hobby Rc electronics could work on a Tesla. Now there is some expensive tooling or diagnostics that you will need to work on the entire car. Just don’t think a Tesla is some alien space craft where only special Tesla/Nasa guys can work on it. As for the tire changers, finding a tire tech shouldn’t be hard. These days would be a good time to buy a Tesla if you so choose, there used cars prices are tumbling and i think Elon just dropped all prices on new Teslas, some up to 20%. That should also drop the prices of their competitors as well. Also the government is giving out subsidies like there candy on halloween. So its a win win for those looking to buy one. Not so much for all the kids and unfortunate people who are enslaved to work in the mines to extract the rare earth materials needed to make the evs though.

From your description of a mechanic, it sounds like the old saying, Jack of all trades master of none! It also reminds me of your knowledge of EVS which in general is not much. I didn’t say they never need brakes, but my car has 22,000 miles on it and will probably go another 22 before I even have to start to worry. I don’t really know if it will be twice that long because of not having to use them but maybe 1 or 2 time a trip. I was in the automotive industry for over 18 years doing everything up to Smog Checks in California. I learned a lot about mechanics it that time most of it was not good. Most if not in a New Car Dealer were parts changers or I should say sellers and if they claimed to be able to work on anything it got worse. Because they couldn’t afford the tools needed to fix 1 make let alone all makes. Each, years specialty hand tools would have broken them. You couldn’t buy them just to fix 1 or 2 cars. That doesn’t include all of the scanners and each year’s manuals. Ya, Jack of all trades master of none.
You missed the entire point. You basically just described yourself I’m afraid. I wish you well in your next job or the next multiple jobs you have moving forward.
