GMC Hummer EV
The GMC Hummer EV are a family of battery-electric vehicles comprised of a full-size pickup truck and a large SUV. The models are branded as GMCs and are sold at GMC dealerships, rather than being a standalone brand like Hummer was previously.
|Model Year(s)||Arriving 2022 (pickup) and 2023 (SUV)|
|Assembly location||GM Detroit-Hamtramck Plant, Michigan, USA|
|Drive Unit(s)||Ultium Drive|
|Drive wheels||All-Wheel Drive|
|Pickup Predecessor||Hummer H3 SUT|
|SUV Predecessor||Hummer H3|
The GMC Hummer EV range is sold as two distinct vehicles:
- The GMC Hummer EV Pickup Truck – a full-size / large pickup truck roughly the size of the GMC Sierra 1500
- The GMC Hummer EV SUV – a full-size / large pickup truck slightly smaller than the GMC Yukon
Both models feature removable roof panels, along with several other novel features previously not found on other GMC models.
Both GMC Hummer EV models are offered with one, two or three electric motors – depending on model. The range-topping model will have an output of over 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 pound-feet of torque (explained here), while being able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just three seconds. Additionally, GM claims that the truck will provide “incredible on- and off-road capability.”
In a presentation in February 2020, GM President, Mark Reuss, also stated that the vehicle will be “the best” electric pickup on the market.
The GMC Hummer EV will be one of the first vehicles to utilize GM’s Ultium platform, including Ultium Battery Technology and Ultium Drive Technology. General Motors has also confirmed that the Hummer EV SUV would introduce the Power Station system as will the Hummer EV pickup truck.
The Hummer EV will ride on GM’s BT1 platform, which is a variant of the body-on-frame GM T1 platform that underpins GM’s full-size pickup trucks (Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra) and SUVs (Chevrolet Tahoe and Chevrolet Suburban, GMC Yukon, Cadillac Escalade).

Potential Military Variant
In July 2020, GM Authority reported that GM might offer a military variant of the GMC Hummer EV, if such a need were to arise from the army. If such a model were to be built, it would be offered alongside the GM Defense Infantry Squad Vehicle (ISV), which may soon have an electrified variant of its own: the GM E-ISV (Electric Infantry Squad Vehicle).
GM teased the upcoming GMC Hummer EV with two ads during the Super Bowl LIV (2020 calendar year). The spots star NBA legend LeBron James, and can be seen here:
The GMC Hummer EV pickup was initially scheduled to be revealed on May 20th, 2020. However, that reveal was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The very first units of the GMC Hummer EV pickup began arriving at dealers in limited quantities in 2022 as a 2022 model year vehicle. The SUV will arrive about a year later.
It’s expected that the vehicles will only be available in North America and perhaps in the Middle East – the markets where GMC currently does business. However, it’s worth noting that GM could choose to expand the footprint of the GMC brand outside of those markets, if it so chooses, and the GMC Hummer EV models present a solid opportunity to do so.
Both GMC Hummer EV models are produced at the GM Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant in Michigan, USA.
