- GMC began production of the Hummer SUV EV on Monday, and customers should begin receiving deliveries by the end of the first quarter, the brand confirmed today.
- Like the Hummer SUT before it, the Hummer SUV will begin production with the Edition 1, which is already sold out in advance.
- The SUV will be built alongside the pickup version at GM’s Factory Zero production facility in the Detroit-Hamtramck area.
Reservation holder rejoice! Duncan Aldred, GM’s global vice-president of Buick and GMC, has confirmed that the electric Hummer SUV officially entered production Monday. GM first brought back the Hummer nameplate with the 2022 Hummer EV SUT pickup. That behemoth’s slightly smaller SUV shaped sibling, the 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV, is a reimagining of one of the most iconic American off-roaders of the past century. GM received more than 90,000 reservations for the Hummer pickup and SUV combined, with numbers split mostly evenly, according to Aldred.
Production began with the sold-out Edition 1, which had a starting price of $105,595 when reservations went live in 2021. It will be built alongside the pickup version of the Hummer at GM’s Factory Zero production facility in the Detroit-Hamtramck area. The SUV version will be powered by two or three electric motors. The EV2 and EV2X with the dual-motor setup generate an estimated 625 horsepower. The EV3X and the Edition 1 have a trio of motors (one in front and two in back) with a claimed 830 horsepower. Torque numbers are more complicated, with GMC claiming 7400 and 11,500 pound-feet respectively, though the real figures likely fall between 1000 and 1100 pound-feet. Range in the Edition 1 is estimated to be more than 300 miles. Last summer, we managed 290 miles in our 75-mph highway range test of the pickup version.
Just as with the pickup, color options are limited for the SUV. Edition 1 SUVs will all be painted in Moonshot Green Matte, with a slightly expanded list as production of standard models ramps up in the latter half of the year. GMC expects that production rates for the Hummer lineup will be considerably higher than last year, though it plans to ramp it up incrementally. Production will begin similarly slowly in the first half of the year, with increased production in the second half of the year, according to Aldred.
Deliveries of the Edition 1 SUV are expected by the end of the first quarter.
