Hummer EV expected to arrive in 2023
More models with longer range and lower price to follow
The 2023 GMC Hummer EV Pickup Edition One has an extremely long name. It also has an official range figure, confirmed by the automaker’s global VP on a call with journalists earlier today, where the exec also talked about current reservations, longer ranges, and lower starting prices.
The Edition One of the 2023 Hummer EV will be the showcase at launch. The version with 1,000 hp and axle torque of 11,500 lb-ft. General Motors had previously estimated the range of the EV to be 350 miles (563 km), but now the company has confirmed a final estimated range of 329 miles (529 km).
While the figure is GMC‘s final estimate, it does not come with an EPA rating’s officialness. It’s because the Hummer EV will have a GVWR of well over 8,500 lbs and at that figure, an EPA rating isn’t required. It’s the same reason you won’t find fuel economy on the window sticker of a Sierra 2500 or 3500 HD (or on any other HD trucks).
The number puts it on par with the EPA estimate for the 2022 Rivian R1T. The mid-range version of that electric truck has an EPA range figure of 314 miles (505 km) with 21-inch wheels and “Large Pack” 135 kWh battery.
GMC Global VP Duncan Aldred said that while the six-figure Edition 1 model will launch first, models with longer ranges as well as lower starting prices will come in 2023. There might not be a rush, though, as Aldred said that more than 80 percent of reservations were for the Edition 1. More than half of the 125,000 people GMC says expressed interest in the truck have put down a $100 deposit. The Hummer EV Pickup is expected to make up 60 percent of Hummer brand sales, Aldred said.
