GMC President Duncan Aldred announced that deliveries of the Hummer Edition 1 – the type of all-electric truck that will set buyers back over $112,000 – begin in December, according to a technical engadged report.
He also revealed that the Version 1 has an EPA range of 329 miles, which is slightly lower than the 350 miles range the automaker originally expected.
The four-ton GMC electric truck boasts 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 ft-lbs of torque from its three engines, giving it the ability to go from zero to 60 mph in 3 seconds, and the truck can also tow up to to 7500 lbs and can hold up to 1300 lbs.
It’s built on the Ultium battery pack, a platform developed by General Motors to power dozens of models across its brands in the coming years.
When shipping begins next month, the Edition 1 Hummer EV will become one of the first electric trucks on the market. Along with the Rivian’s R1T, Tesla is also working on an electric Cybertruck, but the company has delayed its launch until 2022 in August.
Autoblog says more than 80% of Hummer EV reservations are for the Edition 1, but other versions of the electrified vehicle are still arriving in 2023.
Some of these electric vehicles will cost less and have longer ranges, and GMC will also begin delivering an SUV version of the Hummer EV in 2023.
