What do we know about the GMC Hummer EV?
By now, you’ve likely heard that the Hummer nameplate is officially returning to the General Motors lineup… but not quite the same way as it was in the past. Hummer was a division of General Motors – a brand, like GMC or Buick – for nearly two decades, from 1992 to 2010. They were known for building beefy, gas-guzzling utility vehicles that still have a cult following today. That certainly won’t be their reputation once the new Hummer debuts, as the new 2022 GMC Hummer EV will be an electric truck! Let’s go over what else we already know about the truck today.

We know very, very little about the design at this point. The shadowy image on this page is all we’ve been given, so really all we know is what the front fascia will look like and that the headlights will be LEDs.
While exact specifications are far from being confirmed, we do know that the GMC Hummer EV will be offered in three different powertrain configurations. Shoppers will have the ability to choose from one, two or three electric motors. GMC has also claimed that the Hummer EV will be capable of generating 1,000 horsepower, 11,500 pound-feet of torque and getting from 0 to 60 in 3 seconds flat. Those are some incredible numbers, and we imagine they’ll only be possible with the three-motor variant.
While number and names have yet to be announced, GMC has stated that multiple trim levels will be available – which makes sense considering the numerous powertrain options. We know that both a basic package and an off-road package will be available, but beyond that, we know very little. We can, however, imagine a Denali trim will probably be included as well.
Debut & Release Date
The 2022 GMC Hummer EV will be making its official debut on May 20th of this year but won’t be going on sale until the fall of 2021 – hence the 2022 model year designation.
