GMC Electric Hummer Said to Get 329 Miles Per Charge
When General Motors said it was bringing back the Hummer, no one imagined the new sport utility vehicles would go easy on buyers’ wallets. However, the electrified versions of the iconic SUVs will save drivers some cash by avoiding fuel pumps.
GM says the new Hummer will get as much as 329 miles per charge, the Detroit Free Press reports. It will also tow up to 7,500 pounds and carry up to 1,300 pounds in its four-door cab and bed.
GM started delivering the revived SUVs to buyers in December, ahead of the winter holidays. The vehicles make for an expensive stocking stuffer, with a sticker price of more than $112,000.
Meanwhile, GM is set to roll out a “flood” of new electric vehicles next year, the Free Press reports. The company is looking to make good on a promise to make its entire fleet of offerings electric-only by 2035.
“Next up: the Cadillac Lyriq Luxury SUV in 2022, Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups to be revealed Jan. 5 and a Hummer SUV going into production in 2023,” the Free Press’ Mark Phelan reports. “They’re all expected to roll out of the sprawling Factory ZERO complex that hosted President Biden for a speech and joyride in the Hummer pickup last week.”
GM Recalls Cars Over Safety Risks
Meanwhile, GM has had trouble ensuring that the wide range of vehicles that it puts on the road are actually safe to drive.
The company recently recalled some 15,000 SUVs over a fuel pump defect that is said could cause the vehicles to stall suddenly and without warning. GM said that problem increased the risk of an accident.
Meanwhile, GM is still dealing with a massive recall of its entire fleet of Chevy Bolt electric cars. The company called back roughly 140,000 Bolts, citing the risk of battery fires.
GM is not alone. The world’s largest auto manufacturers recall millions of vehicles each year in response to serious safety defects that put people’s lives at risk.
