GMC's electric supertruck lineup expands with the addition of the 2024 Hummer EV making its debut in a new commercial film narrated by LeBron James. The new spot focuses on the SUV's revolutionary capability and signature Hummer EV features that offer Extract Mode and CrabWalk.

Driven by General Motors' next-generation Ultium Platform, the new Hummer EV launches with the exclusive Edition 1, offering customer choice to equip the vehicle for optimal driving range or maximum off-road capability. Edition 1 variants comes standard with 22-inch premium wheels, assist steps and floor liners.

Two variants of the Hummer EV are seen here, with the Hummer EV Edition 1 (left) and the Hummer EV with the Extreme Off-Road Package (right)
The available Extreme Off-Road package adds 18-inch wheels and 35-inch off-road tyres, underbody armour and rock sliders, front eLocker and virtual rear lockers, heavy-duty ball-spline half shafts, UltraVision with underbody camera views and more.

Expected best-in-class off-road proportions will help make the new Hummer EV manoeuvrable, while also making the most of its available signature features such as CrabWalk, Extract Mode and more. The Hummer EV's look remains rugged and includes a new rear design with mounted full-size spare tyre. Inside, a similar five-passenger layout from the pickup remains and includes a large and useful rear cargo area.

With a 3,218mm wheelbase giving the Hummer EV the expected best-in-class off-road proportions with impressive departure and breakover angles, and a tight turning circle of only 10.8m with the four-wheel steering system. An immersive interior includes customisable, multi-sensory user features and an open driving experience with the standard Infinity Roof with removable Sky Panels, I-Bar and rear drop glass.

GM's Ultium Drive System offers up to 819bhp and up to GM estimated 15,592Nm of torque - enough power for the Hummer EV to accelerate from zero to 100km/h in approximately 3.5 seconds. Also, new auxiliary buttons and nearly 200 accessories are available at launch. Lastly, with a 20-module Ultium battery system, GM estimates that the Hummer EV will have an estimated 482km of range.

Additionally, all Hummer EV models feature the enhanced version of Super Cruise, an available driver-assistance technology offering hands-free driving on more than 322,000km of enabled roads, and a new automatic lane changing feature, where the system can determine when a lane change is optimal and initiate the manoeuvre, while following signalling protocols. Production of the Hummer EV is set to begin in early 2023.
