The first in the modern history of the Hummer brand, the GMC Hummer EV electric pickup went under the hammer at the Barrett-Jackson auction for $ 2.5 million (about 190 million rubles). The production car with VIN 001 was put up for sale in the Edition 1 trim level - it includes all the options announced for the SUV, including a 1014-horsepower unit.
- Three electric motors GMC Hummer EV are able to generate not only more than a thousand horsepower, but also 15,590 Nm of torque. According to the calculations of the developers, this will be enough for the pickup to accelerate to 100 km / h in about 3 seconds (although the full potential of the power plant is revealed when activating a special mode called Watts to Freedom). The onboard batteries will last for such a pickup truck for 560 kilometers.
The equipment of the most expensive Hummer in the history of the brand also includes an adaptive suspension with the ability to change the ground clearance, a fully-controlled chassis with a sensational Crab Walk mode, an optional Extreme Off-Road package with unit protection and 35-inch wheels, as well as cameras under the bottom. - they transmit the image to the in-car monitor, which makes it easier to drive through obstacles. Finally, the pickup was equipped with the signature "autopilot" Super Cruise and removable transparent roof panels.

But it will no longer be possible to purchase an electric pickup: the entire first batch planned for production was dismantled according to pre-orders in less than a day from the moment of opening of sales. A more affordable pickup version with a less powerful power plant will not be on sale until a year later.
