As traditional car manufacturers move increasingly toward electrification, the auto industry finds itself in a brave new world of creativity and innovation, the likes of which have not been seen since the early twentieth century. As tech changes and grows at an incredible pace, so does the very concept of what an EV can do and how it can appeal to a broad range of motoring enthusiasts.
Electric vehicles of the modern era emerged as compact, short-range city cars designed for guilt-free commuting. As range and technology improved, many automakers unveiled slippery, highly efficient luxury machines marketed to environmentally conscious buyers, usually with a healthy slathering of buzzwords like green, blue, and eco. When General Motors tossed its hat in the ring, it took an altogether different approach for its newest EV-only brand, raising more than a few eyebrows among EV enthusiasts and internal-combustion loyalists alike.
Love it or loathe it, the first iteration of the Hummer brand from the early 2000s represented excess in just about every way. The massive H1 was little more than a thinly veiled military vehicle, while the H2 was a flamboyant, thirsty, and somewhat impractical style statement – far removed from anything considered “green” today! So it was indeed a surprisingly clever move for GM to revive the Hummer name for their upcoming all-electric range. Announced in 2020 for the 2022 model year, the all-new, all-electric Hummer EV brilliantly mirrors the bold, brash spirit of the original Hummer but in a zero-emissions pure electric vehicle.
Nearly every enthusiast has something to love about the new, reimagined Hummer. The chunky, aggressive styling is familiar to fans of the original, and the spec sheet is deeply impressive. Off-roaders get all-wheel drive with height-adjustable suspension (up to 15.9 inches of clearance), locking diffs, selectable drive ranges, and eighteen cameras for monitoring the trail ahead. Truck buyers get a practical cargo bed, room for five passengers, and a 7,500-pound tow rating. The Hummer is also a mighty performer, as the limited production Edition 1 packs a thousand horsepower from its triple-motor drivetrain and can accelerate from 0-60 mph in about 3 seconds with “WTF Mode” enabled. Other features include variable four-wheel steering for maneuvering on trails or “crab-walking” into tight urban parking spots. The Hummer can do all this and offer up to 329 miles of range on the highway, a deeply impressive figure for a large off-road focused vehicle.
General Motors announced the GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 on October 20, 2020, and all 1,200 were sold in the first 10 minutes of pre-orders. Deliveries have just begun, and we are delighted to offer one of these highly collectible Edition 1 models, presented here in new condition. As with all Edition 1s, it is finished in white with dark-painted wheels, a two-tone black/gray interior with unique badging, and “Easter eggs” in the electronics. It comes standard with every available equipment package, including the Extreme Off-Road package, which adds 35-inch mud-terrain tires, adjustable suspension, skid plates, and rock sliders. It also includes the CrabWalk steering system, adaptive air suspension, Ultravision cameras, Extract mode (lifts the suspension an additional six inches for trail use), removable roof panels, SuperCruise semi-autonomous mode, MultiPro tailgate, and the Watts to Freedom launch control mode. Additional options selected on this truck included the power retractable tonneau cover, illumination package, and Multipro Audio System by Kicker. The owner also ordered a litany of dealer-installed accessories including a spare tire and jack package, red emblems, first aid kit, highway safety kit, red recovery hooks, trailer camera system, cross bars, spare charger, and more.
It is offered here with fewer than 600 miles and is in virtually showroom-fresh condition with all accompanying books, manuals, window sticker, charger, off-road recovery kit, and take-off accessories. With all of the approximately 1,200 of the thousand-horsepower GMC Hummer Edition 1 EVs spoken for, this presents an exceedingly rare opportunity to add this highly significant piece of General Motors history to your collection.
