2022 GMC Hummer EV Ready for Production, Deliveries

Here’s some good news for the 125,000 handraisers on lists to get a GMC Hummer EV full-size electric pickup truck. Preproduction is coming to an end at the Factory Zero plant in Detroit-Hamtramck and the factory is moving to final production of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV. Deliveries to customers will start in December, Vice President of Global GMC Duncan Aldred said in a call with media today. The next step is reaching out to interested customers to turn their reservations into orders.

There was already high demand for the pickup that launches with the top-trim Edition 1 with a starting price of $112,595. Last week GM had an event at the plant where President Joe Biden took a 1,000-hp Hummer for a quick spin. The publicity led to a jump in interest and the lists got substantially longer, Aldred says. Factory Zero will start by assembling only the Edition 1 launch model which comes in white with a black-painted upper portion. It is an exclusive trim, but Aldred will not say how many will be built.

Edition 1 has a range of 329 miles, Aldred says. It comes with all the bells and whistles, including the extreme off-road package, underbody shields, three skid plates, rock sliders, and 35-inch mud-terrain tires. That is on top of three motors, a 24-module battery pack, air suspension, and a lot of tech. It is a large truck to start with, and loaded this way it is heavy enough to be classified as a heavy-duty truck.
