GM Just Unveiled a $110,000 Electric Hummer SUV

Posted on

Well nobody is going to be able to call future Hummer drivers any bad names for destroying the planet given how General Motors (GM) has just unveiled an electric version of the car.

The electric GM Hummer SUV comes with a price tag of $110,000 and is going to go on sale in 2023. The SUV will range from about $80,000 for a base model to $110,595 for a special “Edition 1” launch model with an available “extreme off-road package.”

The SUV will be the stablemate to an upcoming Hummer pickup that’s scheduled to go on sale in the fall of 2021.

This will be the first time GM unveils hummers since it discontinued the gas-guzzling cars back in 2010.

“The GMC Hummer EVs were envisioned to be the most capable and compelling electric supertrucks ever,” said Duncan Aldred, the global vice president of GMC.

The 2024 Hummer EV SUV has torque of up to 11,500 foot-pounds as the pickup but is estimated to have 50 miles less range, 170 less horsepower and be half a second slower than the pickup due to a smaller battery size.

The electric SUV’s range is estimated to be between 250 miles and more than 300 miles depending on the model. The vehicle can achieve 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and has up to 830 horsepower, according to GM.

The car made its debut during an ad that was narrated by NBA all-star LeBron James during the NCAA’s Final Four Game on CBS between the Houston Cougars and the Baylor Bears.

GM said it will begin with producing the highest priced models in early 2023, followed by less expensive versions into spring 2024.

You can already reserve one on GM’s website now.

The Hummer and SUV will both be produced at an assembly plant in Detroit.

GM President Mark Reuss previously told CNBC that the decision to resurrect Hummer for EVs was made after he and GM CEO Mary Barra and at least one other executive discussed in 2019 to reimagine the Hummer for new buyers.

“We just wanted to do it. We saw the opportunity for trucks,” Reuss said during GM’s “EV Day.”

“We always wanted to do this with Hummer, but it had so much baggage from a gas guzzler standpoint, so we turned it on its head,” he added.
