GM announced today that it produced the first GMC Hummer EV pickup trucks for customers’ deliveries, which can now begin. It’s the second electric pickup truck to hit the market.

In October of last year, GM officially launched its GMC Hummer EV, an all-electric “supertruck” with up to 350 miles of range and a starting price of $80,000 for the base version. The vehicle impressed many with a ton of features and decent range for an electric vehicle of this size enabled by GM’s new Ultium battery and drivetrain technology.

GM has been bringing the electric pickup truck to production on an aggressive timeline with production planned by the end of 2021. Today, the automaker confirmed that it achieved this goal.

GM announced that Factory Zero has produced the first few GMC Hummer EV pickup trucks for customer deliveries:

The first 2022 GMC HUMMER EV Pickups have been produced at Factory ZERO, and customer deliveries will now begin. The revolutionary GMC supertruck represents the first of many Ultium-based consumer vehicles to be produced as part of General Motors’ vision for an all-electric future.

They shared this video to celebrate the start of the first customer deliveries of the Hummer EV:

GM President Mark Reuss commented on the achievement:

We brought this truck to market with speed and agility and brought GM another step closer to an all-electric future. With our Ultium Platform as the foundation for a broad range of applications, the GMC HUMMER EV offers our customers the ultimate in capability and performance.

As we previously reported, GM sold the very first Hummer EV (VIN001) for $2.5 million at an auction that’s going to benefit ‘The Tunnel to Towers Foundation’.
