As time passed, Hummer's gas-guzzling road monsters started looking irrelevant. By 2010, the Hummer brand was discontinued, but General Motors didn't stuff the brand in the back of the basement archives. No, they kept it on a shelf in the main offices, dusted and ready to be trotted out when deemed suitable. The trotting out happened in 2021 when it was announced that the Hummer brand would be a GMC sub-brand and produce electric SUVs and pickup trucks. That's precisely what we've got here, a 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup Edition 1 with just 6,500 miles on the odometer since it rolled out of Factory Zero in Detroit.
The Hummer is best known for three things. One, as a civilian SUV adapted from a high-mobility troop transporter on the battlefield. Two, as the vehicle that Arnold Schwarzenegger played a part in bringing to the public. Three, as drawing the ire of environmentalists post-2000, as its large gasoline and diesel engines consume copious amounts of fuel and emit plenty of exhaust. When GM shelved the brand in 2010, they just didn't forget about it. No, they waited for the right time when EV technology would be suitable for the Hummer brand to adopt it. That time came in 2022 when the GMC Hummer EV entered the market. This 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 is for sale with just 54 miles since it rolled out of the factory. If you've wanted a Hummer in your life, here's the best way to add one in an eco-friendly manner.
