When it was discontinued in 2010, the Hummer had become a symbol of non-practical gas-guzzling excess. Now, General Motors is making the ballsy call to bring it back, but this time the looks to be a whole new animal. Built in Detroit and calling it an “electric supertruck,” the next-generation Hummer EV Edition 1 will feature three electric motors that can go for up to 350-miles.
- There’s also a 1,000 horsepower adjustable air suspension, and a “Crab Mode” feature...that allows the driver to move diagonally.
- This model will also sport “Extract Mode,” which will allow the suspension to raise six-inches to help navigate off-road obstacles like “boulders and fording water.”
Want one? You’ll have to wait...but get on the list now as it’s set to officially arrive this time next year...and you’ll likely need the time to save your pennies. Aside from all the cool features, the new Hummer will also be sporting a suggested retail price of $112,595. The timing of this release would also put in in direct competition with Tesla’s Cybertruck…and could possibly even beat it to the marketplace.
But wait, there’s more. In fall 2022, the Hummer EV3X will be available for $99,995. From there, you’ll have the EV2X for $89,995 in 2023, and then the EV2 in 2024 for $79,995.
All four trim models are said to have the 350-mile range on a full charge and the “Crab Mode” feature. Back in the day, the Hummer was about as polarizing as a vehicle can get, but now that electric is in-play, many seem willing to give this beast a second look and view it as an automotive game-changer.
