The first electric Hummers will find their way to their new owners this holiday season. According to AutoblogGMC boss Duncan Aldred has announced that deliveries of the Hummer Edition 1 – the all-electric truck variant that will net buyers more than $112,000 – will begin in December. The conference also revealed that Edition 1 has an EPA range of 329 miles, a bit lower than the 350-mile range the automaker originally expected.

GMC’s four-ton electric truck has 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 ft/lb of torque generated by its three engines, capable of going from zero to 60 miles per hour in under 3 seconds. The truck can also tow 7,500 pounds and carry up to 1,300 pounds. It was built on the Ultium battery pack, the platform GM has developed to electrify dozens of models of its brands over the next few years.

When it ships next month, the Edition 1 Hummer EV will be launched along with the first electric trucks Rivian’s R1T. Tesla is also working on the electric Cybertruck, but the company delayed the release until 2022 in August. Autoblog says more than 80 percent of reservations for the Hummer EV are for Edition 1, but other versions of the electrified vehicle are still arriving in 2023. Some of those EVs will cost less and have longer range. GMC also starts deliveries for the SUV version of the Hummer EV in 2023.
