After a long wait of almost more than one year, the American automaker company GMC debuts its 2022 Hummer EV. The company recently notified that the production of this electric truck will start next year and will be launched in late 2021 followed by three variants. Hummer EV is considered to be one of the huge projects of General Motors as the vehicle is promised to be fully electric with zero emissions pickup. This will make GM step closer to the EV future. 2022 GMC Hummer EV is now open to order for U.S. customers and will be launched at a price of $112,595 (around Rs.83 Lakh). Along with other major EV makers like Tesla, GMC is about to hit a strong competition by introducing Hummer 3rd generation in the EV market.
The Ultium battery is a unique invention of General motors which ranges from 50 to 200 kWh. The purpose of using this battery in the new Hummer EV is to make the performance of the car efficient. Hummer gives an efficiency of 350 miles in a single charge. Ultium battery also serves 800-volt of fast charging. G.M. claims that the new Hummer EV can make a sprint of 0-60 miles per hour in just 3 seconds with this double-stacked Ultium battery. It is a real cherry on the cake in the new Hummer EV.
While reviewing the basic performance of the car, customers seem to have higher expectations as GM has equipped the car with advanced technology and is a pure innovation from the company end. This electric pickup offers power up to 1000 bhp (i.e. magnificently fast and powerful) and torque of 1000+ pound-feet. It clearly states the power of this vehicle. General Motors has promised capability, efficiency and performance in the car and Hummer EV would surely prove itself to be a true muscle.
Body and design
The body and features of the car are designed precisely to match the requirements. Hummer EV has an excellent off-roading capability. On the matter of looks, the new Hummer looks more stunning with the LEDs that connect headlights, the interior isn’t a luxurious one as it is a truck not a sedan or SUV, a ground clearance of 11.9 inches is sufficient for the vehicle to roll off-road. Hummer has had big, powerful and extremely reliable tyres since the Hummer h1 but this 3rd generation will come with increased tyres size, that has been upgraded to 35 inches and can be increased to 37 inches aftermarket.
Features and specifications
Company has given a very convenient feature for pickups called crab mode. Crab mode allows the vehicle to roll diagonally. This mode allows your car to turn all four wheels in the same angle hence the off-roading can be made comfortable.
Adaptive air suspension is provided that is the most important and safety feature for powerful and high-speed cars. Hummer EV also has a feature called “extract mode” which lifts the suspensions as needed. This feature plays a crucial role to maintain aerodynamics of the car.
GMC has given multi pro tailgates in the new Hummer EV. It is generally not seen in base models and is very useful. Hummer will be equipped with it.
18 camera views are visible to the driver on the infotainment system to provide you with a clear view of the surroundings. Even the beneath view of the car is visible to avoid collision with rocks while off-riding.
Its supercruise not only sets speed limits but also helps in lane changing. It also monitors whether the driver is paying attention to the road with the help of sensors and gives alerts.
It has a big and advanced 13.4-inch infotainment system and does multiple functions and produces technical information about the car. 12.3-inch driver info display is also given in the centre.
“We had one goal for Hummer EV: Build the most capable factory truck – ever,” said Al Oppenheiser, GMC Hummer EV chief engineer. GMC has also planned three consecutive launches in three years, Hummer EV3x in 2022, Hummer EV2x in 2023 and Hummer EV2 in 2024.
