The first Hummer EVs are rolling off the line.

After a year filled with delays and production issues, General Motors has a great reason to celebrate. The first GMC Hummer EV Pickups are rolling off the production line and will be in buyers’ driveways soon. The first, VIN 001, was purchased at a Barret-Jackson auction back in March for $2.5 million, but the rest were sold at the EV’s asking price, which starts at $110,295.

The Hummer EV comes as Chevrolet announces that orders will open for the Silverado EV in early January, and as Ford readies the F-150 Lightning for production. It also lands just as Rivian is getting its R1T pickups out the door, so we’ve moved from zero electric pickups to several in the span of just a few months.

The GMC Hummer EV offers several enticing features that include a four-wheel “CrabWalk” function for diagonal movement around off-road obstacles, adaptive air suspension, a Watts to Freedom (WTF) mode that allows the hefty EV to scoot from 0-60 mph in just three seconds, and Super Cruise, GM’s hands-free driving system.

GMC sold out of the Edition 1 Hummer, but reservations for other models are still open. The vehicle is being built at GM’s Factory Zero facility in Detroit-Hammtramck, and will be joined by the Silverado EV when its production commences. The plant saw a $2.2 billion renovation to produce EVs and is key to GM’s early electrified successes.
