The first 2022 GMC HUMMER EV Pickups have been produced at Factory ZERO, and customer deliveries in the US will now begin.

The revolutionary GMC supertruck made its first regional debut last November at General Motors’ Exhibit Zero Arabia event. Cementing on its leadership position across the three key pillars of future mobility: electrification, autonomy, and connectivity, General Motors revealed then that 13 new EVs are set to launch in the Middle East by 2025 with a clear ambition to deliver the best and broadest range of EVs in the region with an EV for every customer and every wallet.

The GMC HUMMER EV is scheduled to arrive to the Middle East by end of 2022 and it represents the first of many Ultium-based consumer vehicles to be produced as part of General Motors’ vision for an all-electric future.

Sharon Nishi, Chief Marketing Officer, GM Africa and Middle East said: “Our vision of the future of electrification is now a reality. Last month, we revealed the GMC HUMMER EV, a year ahead of its official arrival to the Middle East region and the audience response was exceptional. The GMC HUMMER EV packs everything our regional audiences love about the brand, from off-roading capabilities to premium design and state of the art technologies. We can’t wait to see this GMC supertruck on the roads in our region.”

“We brought this truck to market with speed and agility and brought GM another step closer to an all-electric future,” said GM President Mark Reuss. “With our Ultium Platform as the foundation for a broad range of applications, the GMC HUMMER EV offers our customers the ultimate in capability and performance.”

 

The GMC HUMMER EV Edition 1’s design features an Interstellar White exterior, unique Lunar Horizon interior and is powered by GM’s new Ultium Platform. Its revolutionary capability offers a GM-estimated up to 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of torque. Signature features include:

  • 4 Wheel Steer featuring CrabWalk1– allows the rear wheels and front wheels to steer at the same angle at low speeds, enabling diagonal movement of the vehicle, for even greater maneuverability on challenging terrain.
  • Adaptive Air Suspension with Extract Mode2– enables the suspension height to be raised approximately 149 mm /(6 inches) to help the GMC HUMMER EV negotiate extreme off-road situations such as sand dunes, clearing boulders or fording water.
  • Watts to Freedom3–  a driver-selectable experience that unleashes the full acceleration capability of the EV propulsion system, including GM-estimated 0-100 kmh (0-60-mph) performance in approximately 3 seconds.

 

The GMC HUMMER EV leads future production of zero-emission vehicles at GM’s Factory ZERO Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center, which has been retooled, upgraded and expanded with a $2.2 billion investment by GM. Factory ZERO will serve as the launchpad for the company’s multi-brand EV strategy4.

The quiet revolution continues as the GMC HUMMER EV Pickup goes through its rigorous off-road testing in the lead-up to its production debut this fall. Watch as the GMC HUMMER EV team puts the world’s first all-electric supertruck through its paces on challenging trails near Moab, Utah, proving its off-road capability and ability to tackle all types of terrains, including the Middle East’s rocky roads and sandy dunes.

Traversing legendary trails across Moab, the team’s testing and calibration included Adaptive Air Suspension hardware, Extract Mode1, Terrain Mode, One-Pedal Driving2 control, e4WD and torque distribution, eLockers, stability control, rear steering, CrabWalk3 and more.

 

Available Terrain Mode, part of the GMC HUMMER EV’s Drive Mode Control, will offer two braking calibrations, with a mild braking option for two-foot driving and a purpose-designed One-Pedal Driving2 control in low-speed off-road driving. As pioneered by General Motors for other electric vehicles, One-Pedal Driving enables the driver to accelerate and decelerate using only the accelerator pedal. With Terrain Mode, that same One-Pedal Driving control is adapted with unique calibrations for speed-limited off-road driving, helping the driver to negotiate steep grades, rock crawling and other challenging terrain without having to toggle between the accelerator and brake pedal.

 

“One-Pedal Driving offers a great feeling of control by optimizing the regenerative braking, friction braking and drive motor torque all through the accelerator pedal,” said Aaron Pfau, GMC HUMMER EV lead development engineer. “Drivers will quickly realize the benefits once they try it off-road.”

When the road gets tough, the upcoming available Extract Mode1 feature enables the Adaptive Air Suspension height to be raised approximately 6 inches in order to help the GMC HUMMER EV negotiate extreme off-road situations, such as clearing large boulders and fording deeper water.

 

“The GMC HUMMER EV was a blank slate that was filled out by a dedicated team of engineers who are hardcore off-road enthusiasts.” In regards to our customers in the Middle East, we realize the passion they have for off-roading, particularly in the desert, as well as the emotional connection they hold with the GMC brand. This all-electric supertruck is engineered to tackle the region’s various roads and sandy dunes, while elevating the driver’s experience to the premium GMC standards they value. This recent off-road testing shows what the HUMMER EV is made of, and we can’t wait for customers to explore all it has to offer” Pfau concluded.

 

Stay tuned for updates on the GMC HUMMER EV testing and development journey.

GMC today introduced the 2022 HUMMER EV Edition 1 — a first-of-its kind supertruck developed to forge new paths with zero emissions.

It will be the first fully electric addition to GMC’s lineup, driven by next-generation EV propulsion technology that enables unprecedented off-road capability, extraordinary on-road performance and an immersive driving experience designed to put occupants at the center of every moment.

“This innovative truck comes to market with speed and purpose, bringing GM another step closer to an all-electric future,” said Mark Reuss, president of General Motors. “With our Ultium Drive architecture as the foundation for an exceptionally broad range of performance, HUMMER EV is perfect for the customer who wants capability, efficiency and performance.”

The HUMMER EV will get its energy from General Motors’ all-new Ultium batteries and power from Ultium Drive, GM’s proprietary EV drive units. A GM-estimated best-in-class 1,000 horsepower and GM-estimated 11,500 lb.-ft. of torque are generated by three separate motors within two Ultium drive units to give HUMMER EV’s e4WD remarkable on- and off-road capabilities. Additional purposeful and intuitive technologies will complement the truck’s range and capabilities to enhance and elevate every excursion.

Forge any path, differently

“We had one goal for HUMMER EV: Build the most capable factory truck – ever,” said Al Oppenheiser, GMC HUMMER EV chief engineer. “It’s an absolute off-road beast with a unique e4WD drive system that provides maneuverability unlike anything GM has ever offered before.”

The GMC HUMMER EV is designed to be the ultimate off-road EV supertruck, with all-new features developed to challenge tough obstacles and terrain.

Highlights of available features include:

  • MultiPro Tailgate with six functional positions.
  • Power rear drop glass window and power tonneau cover.

GMC HUMMER EV’s design cues will be bold and futuristic, featuring carefully executed and clever details such as the distinctive “H” motif seen in a number of elements. The reimagining of conventional displays communicates the vehicle’s capability and technology via exterior lighting and interior user interfaces.

“The GMC HUMMER EV reimagines an instantly-recognizable silhouette for a modern, all-electric future,” said Phil Zak, design executive director. “Its design visually communicates extreme capability, which is reinforced with rugged architectural details offered with a premium, well-executed and appointed interior.”

The HUMMER EV will be the first full-electric vehicle in GMC’s portfolio and is powered by General Motors’ new Ultium battery system. Production begins in late 2021, at GM’s Factory ZERO Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center11 — a nearly 40-year-old facility repurposed and retooled with a $2.2-billion investment devoted to electric vehicle production. Future production vehicles out of the factory will offer zero emissions.

Performance targets, estimates and capability specifications based on computer-aided analysis and simulation using virtual engineering tools. Estimates may vary depending on model and trim. Additional model and trim details can be found at GMC.com. Actual production model and results may vary.
