A decade ago, you can’t turn a corner without seeing a Hummer. There’s just something about this combat-adjusted, all-terrain vehicle that had captured the American motoring public’s imagination.
Many people own SUVs who have no intention of ever hitting the trail or exploring the great outdoors, but there is something about the sense of safety and protection that you get from an SUV, and that partly explains why they’re so popular.
We could say the same about the Hummer. This classic General Motors design with its military pedigree brought to the table everything that people desire about protection, safety, and ruggedness.
Well, the new 2022 GM Hummer is one of the most awaited models in a long time. It’s easy to see why.
This is an all-electric version of the Hummer. Also known as Hummer EV or Hummer electric vehicle, it has been praised as the world’s first, heavy-duty all-electric truck.
GM’s Hummer was originally discontinued in 2010. And, boy, it is making a big splash during its comeback!
As you probably know, there have been many changes in the automotive industry between 2010 and today. In particular, the rise of electric vehicles like Tesla and the intense interest in electric SUVs has sparked the popular imagination for the electric version of the Hummer.
If you are looking for a vehicle that is completely electric and built from the ground up for high-quality off-road driving experiences, the Hummer provides that.
The new 2022 Hummer EV features a 1000 HP engine with an 11,500 lb-ft of torque. This is provided by three separate motors.
It can go from stationary or zero to 60 miles per hour in approximately 3 seconds. Not too shabby!
It also has an 800 V DC-charging unit. It enables you to charge your vehicle for 100 miles in only 10 minutes.
In terms of driving range, it comes in at a respectable 350 miles on a full charge.
The 2022 Hummer EV still resembles the classic look of the Hummer. If you’ve fallen in love with straight lines and the rugged appearance of the Hummer, the Hummer EV will not disappoint you.
It does, however, sport a more modern and sleek look. Its lines are up-to-date, and it doesn’t look outdated or overly celebrates its vintage design elements.
It has an upright windshield, unique H-shaped headlights, an LED-light bar on the grille, a high beltline, and a narrower side glass assembly.
It also comes with 35-inch mud-terrain tires, which you can upgrade to 37 inches.
If you’re looking for a modern SUV that looks rugged and is ready to take whatever the great outdoors offers, the Hummer EV should be high on your agenda.
It looks rugged in all the right places, but still modern-looking. Thus, you can drive it around the city.
Features and Benefits
As for its interior, the Hummer EV packs more premium interior and technology experience. The cockpit is large and has a 13.4-inch infotainment screen and 12.3 square inches of digital screen instrumentation.
They also installed UltraVision cameras on the front and rear so you can get a visual from underneath.
Another off-road feature included in the Hummer EV is the CrabWalk. It involves angling both the rear wheels and front wheels so they can be able to drive through and make quick work of different paths and terrains.
For steering, this vehicle will not steer you wrong because it features an all-wheel, four-wheel steering assembly system.
The adaptive suspension also lifts the truck up to 6 inches and enables it to scale verticals as high as 18 inches. That’s quite spacious.
Indeed, one of the most frequently used words to describe this second electric coming of the Hummer design is “Super Truck.”
Not only did it pack a tremendous amount of technological advancement in its large space, but it actually delivers with the experience most off-roaders are looking for.
They want to conquer any terrain. They want to handle everything and anything that Mother Nature can throw their way, whether in a desert, a forest, or a tundra.
I’m happy to report that the Hammer EV can deliver all of that but it also delivers an extra benefit which is that it’s very environmentally friendly because it is an all-electric pickup truck.
Good for Star-Gazing Trips
The model will also have an Infinity Roof with modular Sky Panels. If you are looking to drive with the moon high above and would like the wind to flow through your hair, this model’s roof design can make that happen.
It also makes watching the night sky and stars when camping all that much easier. If you’re looking for the ultimate open-air experience and a delightful combination of protection and access, this model is right up your alley.
They also introduced the new Super Cruise in this model and includes driver-assistance for hands-free driving and automatic lane-changing features.
Make no mistake. This is a super truck and has amazing specifications and features. Expect to pay a hefty price tag for such features.
This is a General Motors homage to off-road, automotive engineering. The price tag reflects that.
The first edition Hummer Electric starts at $112, 595. Succeeding models like the EV3X and the EV2X will be priced at $99, 995, and $89, 995, respectively. But as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. If you are looking for high-end, off-roading performance, environmental sustainability, and a tremendous amount of technology packed within a small space, the Hummer EV has you covered.
