Hummer goes electric—2022 GMC Hummer EV to debut as ‘Edition 1’

Just a little over 10 years after the last Hummer (an H3 model) rolled off General Motor’s production line in Shreveport, Louisiana—and after a decade-long hiatus—an all-new one is announced to take on the mantle of America’s supertruck. 

And now GMC, GM’s truck brand which will carry the Hummer name, has announced that reservations are being accepted for its new supertruck, the 2022 GMC Hummer EV, which launches with initial production in the last quarter of next year in the unique Edition 1 trim.

From bold and futuristic design cues, to cleverly executed details, the 2022 GMC HUMMER EV reimagines an instantly recognizable silhouette for a modern, all-electric future

“The GMC Hummer EV is revolutionary, defying what the industry thinks of as a pickup truck,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick and GMC. “The Edition 1’s tailored off-road content will make Hummer EV’s unprecedented capability and zero-emissions a very special proposition for customers.”

The GMC HUMMER EV is driven by next-generation EV propulsion technology that enables unprecedented off-road capability, extraordinary on-road performance and an immersive driving experience

Every GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 will be identically appointed and fully equipped. Each features a white exterior and a unique Lunar Horizon interior, with special “Edition 1” interior badging.


The new truck will boast an “Extreme Off-Road Package” including 18-inch wheels, 35-inch-OD Goodyear Wrangler All Territory MT tires, underbody armor, rock sliders, underbody cameras, Adaptive Air Suspension with available segment-leading Extract Mode capability, and segment-exclusive 4-Wheel-Steer with CrabWalk diagonal-drive functionality.

Under the hood

The Hummer EV will have a three-motor e4WD propulsion system (including torque vectoring) with GM-estimated best-in-class 1,000 horsepower and GM-estimated 11,500 lb.-ft. of torque. The new supertruck is projected to have a 350-mile (560 kms) driving range on a full charge.

With an 800-volt DC fast charging capability (similar to the Porsche Taycan), the Hummer EV Edition 1 is expected to have industry-best charging capability at any of the new 350-kilowatt high output public DC fast charging stations — the fastest method supported by current charging standards. GM estimates a 0-60 mph (approx. 0-100 km/h) in three seconds.

The EV Edition 1 also features the latest version of Super Cruise, a driver-assist feature offering hands-free driving on more than 200,000 miles (approximately 322,000 km) of enabled roads, and a new lane automatic changing feature, where the system can determine when a lane change is optimal and initiate the maneuver, while following signaling protocols. The truck also has continuous intelligent damping with Adaptive Ride Control.

Design & utility

Other features include an industry-leading Infinity Roof with removable transparent Sky Panels that can stow in the “frunk” at the front of the vehicle, a power rear drop glass and power tonneau cover, a MultiPro Tailgate, and a 13.4-inch diagonal infotainment screen and 12.3-inch diagonal driver information center display.

The 2022 GMC HUMMER EV’s design visually communicates extreme capability, reinforced with rugged architectural details that are delivered with a premium, well- executed and appointed interior

In America, the 2022 HUMMER EV Edition 1 will have a starting MSRP of US$112,595, including destination, leading a range of additional trims to be introduced in future model years. Standard equipment includes Super Cruise capability with three years of service, UltraVision with High Definition Surround Vision, Digital Key, 35-inch-OD tires, Infinity Roof, power rear drop glass, six-function MultiPro Tailgate and more.

Future lower-end trim variants, priced at just under US$80,000, are expected to follow in 2023 and 2024. 

The Hummer EV will be the first full-electric vehicle in GMC’s portfolio and is powered by General Motors’ new Ultium battery system. The battery cells will be produced as part of a joint venture with LG Chem, at a new facility, in Lordstown, Ohio. 


Initial production begins in late 2021 at GM’s Factory ZERO Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center, a nearly 40-year-old facility repurposed and retooled with a $2.2-billion investment devoted to electric vehicle production. Future production vehicles out of the factory will offer zero emissions.
