Hummer EV: Specifications and Performance

In a bizarre turn of events, the gas-guzzling Hummer brand, which General Motors retired in 2010, will make a reappearance in 2022 as a fully electrified sub-brand of GMC. The revived Hummer will first show up as a pickup truck, then as an SUV.

The top engine option for the new pickup, which has three electric motors and can produce up to 1000 horsepower, has an estimated range of 329 miles per charge and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds. 

Additionally, the Hummer EV has fascinating four-wheel steering characteristics that let it drive diagonally and "crab" sideways, as well as removable roof panels, an optional adjustable air suspension, and other features that should make it enjoyable to take off-road.

The next frontier for electric vehicles is the pickup truck market, where established automakers like Ford and Rivian are competing with upstarts like Rivian and Tesla.

What has changed for 2022?

Although the moniker Hummer is well-known, the Hummer EV will be a completely new model in the GMC lineup. Only the most expensive Edition 1 model will initially be offered; cheaper trims will become available in 2023 and 2024.


Currently, the Hummer EV pickup vehicle costs between $80,000 and $100,000

Which one to Purchase?

Since the EV3X is the second in line to go into production and the top Edition 1 trim has already sold out, we'd suggest it. Many of the nicest features available on the Hummer EV are included in its six-figure price tags, such as an adjustable air suspension, GM's Super Cruise hands-free driving system, and a massive 13.4-inch infotainment display.

The less costly EV2X and EV2 will go on sale in 2023 and 2024, respectively, and both have a less potent two-motor drivetrain.

Power and Performance

Currently, the Hummer EV's only available powertrain is a system that uses three electric motors to provide 1000 horsepower. The Hummer EV has all-wheel drive as standard, and in our testing, its Watts to Freedom launch control driving mode allowed it to reach 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds.

While its acceleration prowess astounded us, its braking performance left us wanting. Repeated runs led to considerable brake fade, and it took an exceptionally long 211 feet to bring the entire Hummer EV's mass to a stop from 70 mph.

Yikes. The rear-wheel steering mechanism undoubtedly contributes to the Hummer EV's better-than-expected maneuverability at low speeds, but once you're moving, the vehicle is just as difficult to control as other lifted brodozers.

Battery Life, Charging, and Range

With an estimated 329 miles of driving range per charge, the Hummer EV makes use of GM's innovative Ultium battery-pack technology. 290 miles were recorded in our tests on an all-highway range test at 75 mph. GMC boasts that the Hummer's 800-volt electrical system has a 350-kilowatt fast-charging capacity and can add 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes. 

The Hummer EV may also charge on standard public charging terminals or at home using a provided adapter for customers who don't have any DC fast charging stations nearby, but charging times are noticeably slower.

Capacity for Towing and Payload

GMC claims that the Hummer EV can tow up to 7500 pounds, speaking of payload. That is less than the 11,000-pound and 10,000-pound towing capacities of rival EV pickups like the Rivian R1T and the Ford F-150 Lightning, respectively. The range of our Hummer EV decreased to barely 140 miles at 70 mph when towing a 6100-pound double-axle camping trailer during our towing test.

Interior and Performance

The Hummer EV is a crew cab pickup truck with a five-foot-long bed, whereas older Hummers were primarily SUVs. Given the expense of the Hummer and the fact that its cabin isn't as roomy as GMC's Sierra crew cab pickup truck, inside materials might be of higher quality.

However, a revolutionary removable roof that revives a T-top-like form common in GM sports and muscle vehicles in the 1970s and 1980s allows the interior to be opened to the elements.

The clear panels resemble a typical panoramic glass sunroof while they are in place, but when they are raised and stowed in the front trunk of the Hummer EV, the vehicle takes on a convertible appearance reminiscent of the Jeep Gladiator. 

There are several moon-inspired details inside that serve as not-so-subtle reminders of GM's connection to NASA astronauts and the electrically powered Apollo 15 lunar rover that the company helped engineers with, such as a moon-boot footprint on the dead pedal and speaker grilles that depict the Sea of Tranquility.

The Infotainment and connectivity

The infotainment screen is a sizable 13.4 inches, and there is also a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel. The designers of the immensely famous video game Fortnite were hired by GMC to produce the infotainment interface graphics for the Hummer EV.

The high-resolution screen and cutting-edge visuals appear fantastic, but we experienced some noticeable lag that makes us wonder if the system lacks the processing power necessary to keep up with the capabilities of the program.

A Wi-Fi hotspot, GM's OnStar telematics system, and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are just a few of the connectivity technologies that come standard.
