Hummer’s new electric SUV can drive diagonally, with a range of 300 miles and a price tag of $ 110,000
Hummer has unveiled the SUV version of its electric pickup truck, which comes with up to 300 miles range and retails for a suggested retail price of up to $ 110,595 for the first edition. Reservations for that model are already full, according to on GM’s website
GM, which produces the electric Hummers under its GMC brand, said the SUV will go into production in early 2023, with less expensive variants starting at $ 90,000 in the spring of 2023 and a low-end variant at $ 80,000 with a range of 250 miles within the spring of 2024. Previously, the company said assembly of the electric pickup will begin in late 2021, starting with the most expensive trim level.
Like the pickup, the SUV’s $ 90,000 and above trim levels come with Crab Walk, which allows the Hummer to turn all four wheels to drive diagonally at low speeds, and Extract mode, which includes the air suspension system. can use to lift the whole. vehicle six inches off the ground to get over major obstacles. It also has the same 13.4-inch touchscreen in the center console and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.
GM discontinued the Hummer brand in 2010. At the time, the boxy behemoth had become a symbol of the pre-financial crisis excess, made famous for its inclusion in rap videos and television shows such as The Sopranos and EntourageBut when the global recession hit and fuel prices started to rise, Hummer sales fell and the vehicle was discontinued.
Last year, the company announced it was reviving the nameplate as an outrageous, 1,000 horsepower battery-powered pickup truck that can raise and lower its suspension six inches and even drive diagonally. The Hummer is a cornerstone of GM’s $ 27 billion push in EVs, including the release of 30 new vehicles by 2025.
Both Hummers will be one of the first vehicles to be built on GM’s new modular electric battery platform, Ultium, which the company says will deliver power from 50 to 200 kWh, enabling a range of up to “400 miles or more”. For trucks, the Ultium platform will include 800-volt battery packs and 350 kW fast charge, equivalent to a 100-mile charge in 10 minutes, according to GM; for the SUV, fast charging is limited to 300 kW, and with 170 hp less at top spec, you’re also looking at 3.5 seconds to go from 0-60, instead of a flat 3.0 seconds.
The vehicles will also feature the second-generation version of GM’s advanced driver assistance system, Super Cruise, which enables ‘hands-free’ highway driving.
