GMC Global Vice President Duncan Aldred confirmed today that the HUMMER EV Edition One Pickup will have 329 miles of range and that GMC has taken over 60k reservations for the all-electric HUMMER pickup and SUV models.

During an update call with journalists today GMC’s Ducan Aldred gave added insight to the expected range of the forthcoming GMC HUMMER EV Pickup and how many reservations the brand has taken for HUMMER EV vehicles and when the first customers will take delivery.

Duncan Aldred confirmed for the first time that the brand has over 60k reservations for the HUMMER EV. Around 70% of those reservations are for the truck with 30% for the SUV. Out of all reservations, 80% are for Edition 1 models. Overall GMC has over 125k people who have raised their hands to show interest in one of the GMC HUMMER EV models.

GMC confirmed that the HUMMER EV Edition 1 Pickup will have 7,500lbs of towing capacity and around 1,300lbs of payload capacity

GMC also confirmed that the HUMMER EV Edition 1 Pickup will be classified as an HD vehicle, precluding them from having to share some fuel economy and range figures on the window sticker.

Wow, GM missed on range, weak payload and less than expected towing.... I predicted about the HD and no EPA rating...


So Rivian R1T hauls more, tows more, range about the same, and the HummerEV is 55% more expensive, hmmm... I might have to reshuffle the deck again.

Considering it's weight and Offroading setup for its suspension this isn't that bad.
Soft shocks and independent suspensions hurt tow ratings.

Look at other off-roading configured trucks and their non-off-roading counter parts.

Also, GM tow ratings are all based on trim levels, it will change based on vehicle weight content/specifications.

As for range GM has always been very conservative on the range numbers, many of their vehicles exceed the EPA numbers.

Not disappointed.

Range may not be 400+ miles, but for a vehicle this size, 330 miles is damn good. For the Tesla stans who go "bUt tHe CyBerTrUCk hAs 500 MiLEs"...dude. Come on now.

As far as towing goes, the reality is that it's hardly relevant at all with this type of vehicle. For the same reason no one cares about how much a Wrangler can tow. Non issue.

Payload is the only real loss.

Payload we kind of knew, but the tow rating is surprisingly low...

Yeah, you're right on the payload. It's a bummer for a Hummer (and yes, that was intentional, sorry), but for all the sweet goodness already baked into the truck, it's not a deal breaker for me.

Towing is low but I don't mind that as much because 98% of people will never even tow with theirs, and 99.99% will never need to exceed that capacity if they do tow.

Wow, Truck has more reservations than SUV 70% to 30% is a shocker, and 80% of the reservations are edition 1's, so does that mean GM is going to build way more of these than we thought? I was thinking 10K edition 1 trucks and 10K edition 1 SUV's. I will stick with my assumptions until I hear different from GM, GM Trucks has been known to misunderstand data in the past.

If my math is right that's around 48k Edition 1 Vehicles.

On another note about Towing.... would you say the full sized Ford Bronco is a competitor to the Hummer for the off roading space?
I would think yes, yes it is.

Here are it's towing and payload:
Max towing is up to 3,500 pounds
Max Payload is up to 1,370 pounds

Bronco is not a competitor, Rivian R1T is a competitor.. Cybertruck, Etc... This Hummer is basically a paper tiger, expensive, and not very capable as a truck.

No GM was targeting the Raptor, Bronco, and TRX with their truck. They had no thought of the other EVs. Look at the Easter Eggs found in the truck, the off roading specs, the size. All very comparable.

Only we are comparing the other EVs in the market and they are all targeting different segments, the Cyber Truck is still not even close to coming out.

First of all, GM launched this HummerEV program 2 weeks after Rivian left them at the alter, this was most certainly launched as an answer to the Rivian R1T (just like BrightDrop was an answer to the Rivian Van). Rivian succeeded in creating a better balanced vehicle and that has broader range of capabilities, and for far less $$.


Sad, I think GM missed the target on capabilities. This Hummer might compete with ICE competitors but the EV competition will blow it away.

Wonder if his figures are also for people who ordered a 3X but noted they'd be interested in an Edition 1 if available.

The Bronco is not fullsize. Its based on the midsize Ranger.

Its closest competitors are the F150 Raptor and Ram TRX.

F150 Raptor
Payload: 1400 lbs
Towing: 8200 lbs

Ram TRX
Payload: 1400 lbs
Towing: 8100 lbs

So with the edition 1 with the most power being able to tow 7500, does that mean the 3X and lesser models will have lower tow ratings?
Typically the limiting factor on tow ratings is the Tongue weight limit, so in this case lesser equipped models should offer more towing, I would assume SUT's with smaller battery packs the the rear modules of the battery will be removed first, increasing payload and towing.

The larger Bronco is still midsize. On the Ranger platform, the smaller Bronco sport is on the Escape platform.
Again I wasn't being platform specific in my description.... I was trying to be specific between the two Broncos, nit picking that is getting off topic anyway.

The EV1 has every feature under the sun and thus the heaviest, impacting range and towing... the lower models with more available packages, will offer more choice on what someone wants, configuring for more towing, payload, range... or more off-roading capable, etc...

The later SUV may have the better all around setup.
