GMC Hummer EV is slated to acquire a new price hike per model
Not long ago, a vehicle the size of a GMC Hummer going anywhere without the benefit of ICE technology would have been unthinkable. However, it is 2022 now, and the marque has now established that such a truck getting on the road in a perfectly normal - even super-effective - way under electric power is eminently possible.
This concept has taken off to the extent that GMC has reportedly taken about 77,500 Hummer EV pre-orders to date. However, it seems this success has not outrun the realities of current economic conditions. According to a new report, the company is to increase the price of the super-powered electric truck by up to US$6,250.
This change is slated to come into effect today (June 18, 2022) and apply to each SKU of the Hummer EV currently up for pre-order. They consist of the EV2, EV2X and top-end EV3X, available in either pick-up or SUV form.
The price-structure change is slated to leave either type of the EV2 at $86,245, the EV2X at $96,245 and the EV3X at $106,245. Then again, they are listed at $84,650, $94,650 and $104,650 respectively at the time of writing.
The EV3X is the only option with the electric Hummer's full 3 motors, for an estimated 830 horsepower and up to 11,500 pound-feet of torque, and 22-inch premium wheels with all-terrain tires. It is also the most accessible, as its pick-up variant might yet ship in 2022.
The EV2X, on the other hand, might reach a buyer by 2023, whereas orders for the base-model EV2 may not make it until 2024.
