The First 2022 GMC HUMMER EV Edition 1 Sells For $2.5 Million At Auction


  • It was sold at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction this past weekend.

  • 100% of the sale price is going to charity.


If you wanted to be the first to get an all-new 2022 GMC HUMMER EV Edition 1, this was your only chance as all Edition 1 units were sold out online within an hour last fall. The entire sales price of the sale will go to a charitable organization. As part of the donation, Barrett-Jackson waived all fees and commissions.

The base price in the US for the 2022 GMC HUMMER EV Edition 1 is just over $112,000 however the generous buyer understood that the money was going to a good cause. The Tunnel to Towers Foundation was established to honor the memory of September 11 first-responder Stephen Siller. It builds mortgage-free, accessible smart homes for the most catastrophically-injured veterans and provides mortgage-free homes for Gold Star families and the families of first responders killed in the line of duty.

“We are thrilled with the auction results and what the proceeds will mean for the Tunnel to Towers Foundation,” said Duncan Aldred, global vice president of Buick and GMC. “We also recognize the support of Barrett-Jackson for this special occasion, which made it a 100 percent charitable endeavor.”
