The Highly Anticipated 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV Is Finally Built

Posted on
  • GMC started production of the Hummer SUV EV on Monday, and customers should start taking deliveries by the end of the first quarter, the brand confirmed today.
  • Like the Hummer SUT before it, the Hummer SUV will enter production with the sold-out 1st Edition.
  • The SUV will be built alongside the pickup at GM’s Factory Zero production facility in the Detroit-Hamtramck area.

Reservation holders rejoice! Duncan Aldred, GM global vice president for Buick and GMC, has confirmed that the Hummer electric SUV officially went into production on Monday. GM is first bringing back the Hummer nameplate with the 2022 Hummer EV SUT pickup. That slightly smaller SUV-shaped brother, the 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV, is a reimagining of one of the most iconic American off-roaders of the last century. GM received more than 90,000 reservations for its Hummer pickup and SUV combination, with the numbers roughly divided, according to Aldred.

Production began with the sold-out Edition 1, which has a starting price of $105,595 when pre-orders go live in 2021. It will be built alongside the Hummer pickup version at GM’s Factory Zero production facility in the Detroit-Hamtramck area. The SUV version will be powered by two or three electric motors. EV2 and EVs2X with a dual motor setup it produces about 625 horsepower. EV3X and the Edition 1 has three motors (one at the front and two at the rear) with a claimed 830 horsepower. Torque figures are more complicated, with GMC claiming 7400 and 11,500 pound-feet, respectively, though the real numbers are likely somewhere between 1000 and 1100 pound-feet. Range on Issue 1 is estimated at over 300 miles. Last summer, we managed 290 miles in a 75 mph road trial of the pickup version.

Just like pickups, color options are limited for SUVs. The Edition 1 SUVs will all be painted in Moonshot Green Matte, with the roster expanding slightly as production of the standard models increases in the second half of the year. GMC expects production rates for the Hummer range to be significantly higher than last year, although it plans to increase them gradually. Production will start slowly in the first half of the year, with production increasing in the second half of the year, according to Aldred.

Delivery of the Edition 1 SUV is expected at the end of the first quarter.
