GM has begun deliveries of the Hummer EV, its first “super-truck” manufactured at the Factory Zero in Hamtramck, Michigan.
The first next-generation electric vehicles are called GMC HUMMER EV Edition 1 Pickup and BrightDrop EV600, and are both built on the Ultium Platform.
The 30 all-new EVs are scheduled globally through 2025, with two-thirds of them being available in North America, while Ultium will be the main vehicle of GM’s expansion.
“This is the first chapter for Ultium – and for GM’s transition to a zero-emissions future,” said GM President Mark Reuss. “Both commercial and retail customers will benefit from the EV experience, from exhilarating acceleration to low cost of operation, versatility and ability to customize after the sale. GM is ideally positioned to provide EVs for every customer in every segment, retail or commercial.”
The company will start shipping out the Edition 1 Hummer EV next month and will become the first electric trucks in the market along with Rivian’s R1T.
