The process of electrification in the automotive industry is entering pretty much every segment and these days, EV pickup trucks are particularly interesting. There are several startup companies that came up with new models, while renowned makers of traditional pickups are also working on such vehicles. Another interesting name that is on the way is 2022 GMC Hummer EV, which will be GM’s first all-electric pickup truck on the market. Key rivals should be models like Tesla Cybertruck, Rivian R1T etc.
This is a quite big turnover if we consider that Hummer was one of the thirstiest SUVs on the market. The brand has been discontinued ten years ago and now it’s coming as a sub-division of GMC. The new pickup truck will come with a pretty interesting design and another interesting thing to know is that the SUV version is on the way too. According to the latest reports, the new model will hit the market sometime in the next year, as the 2022 GMC Hummer EV.
2022 GMC Hummer EV Drivetrain and Performances
Of course, the most interesting part of the new Hummer EV will be its drivetrain. At this point, we are still waiting for the details, but reports suggest three versions in the offer, with single, two and three electric motors. Of course, a single-motor version will be the cheapest and will send power to rear wheels only, while the other two will feature four-wheel drive. The company claims that the range-topping version will feature a max output of 1.000 horsepower. The company also claims max torque of 11.500 lb-ft of torque, though we are not exactly sure about this calculation. In any case, this version should be able to hit 60 mph in about 3.0 seconds.
When it comes to the battery pack, the exact numbers are yet to come and we also count on a couple of different capacities in the offer. Most likely, models with the biggest battery should be able to make around 400 miles on a single charge.
Towing and Payload Capacity
Once again, the exact numbers are still to come. Still, we presume that the 2022 GMC Hummer EV will be pretty much on par with the competition. So, count on max towing capacity from 7.500 to 11.500 pounds, depending on the version you choose. The max payload capacity should go between 1.500 and 3.500 pounds.
2022 GMC Hummer EV Design
Despite the familiar name, this will be a completely new vehicle in GM’s offer. We are talking about a completely new platform, which will be used for all-electric Silverado and several other future EV models. When it comes to the styling, we can see numerous rendering photos on the network and judging on them, the 2022 GMC Hummer EV will come with loads of styling details that closely resemble original Hummer models. For example, we can see the recognizable grille design, as well as that massive skid plate at the front. The wheels also look very similar to the ones we can find in old-school Hummer models.
2022 GMC Hummer EV Interior
The interior should come in a similar manner too, though we haven’t seen any rendering photos so far. Of course, the cabin will look modern and futuristic, while we have no doubt that the new 2022 GMC Hummer EV will come in four-door crew cab version only. Smaller cabs won’t be in the offer.
The cabin will be full of advanced tech features and besides infotainment and similar technologies, we also count on loads of advanced driver aids, including GM’s Super Cruise, which is one of the most advanced semi-autonomous driving systems in the automotive industry today.
Release Date and Price
As we already mentioned, the 2022 GMC Hummer EV is about to hit the market sometime in the second half of the year. When it comes to the price, some sources suggest that base models will go around 70.000 dollars.
