It’s Back and Better than Ever…The All-Electric 2022 Hummer EV

When the Hummer first hit the streets in 1992, it was one of the coolest and most badass SUVs out there. Based on the AM General military truck – the M998 Humvee – the Hummer had the same structure and most of the mechanical parts of the military version but with nice civilian touches like air conditioning, sound insulation, upgraded upholstery and a stereo system.

Quick history lesson…the Hummer came to be thanks partly to the one, the only, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Arnold apparently saw an army convoy while filming Kindergarten Cop years earlier and started campaigning and lobbying for a civilian version to be available. He ended up buying the very first two Hummer H1’s to come to market. In 1999, General Motors (GM) bought the brand name from AM General and continued to make the original Hummer H1, then added two of their own GM designs, new H2 and H3 models. Sadly, the Hummer brand was “Terminated” in 2010 but not before it said… “I’ll Be Back.”

Fast forward to 2022, and the Hummer is back, but in a cool, environmentally friendly pickup version. And this Hummer EV is no joke. This brawny super truck is powered by three electric motors and has the off-road ability to “crab walk” and drive diagonally. No, this EV is “not a tumour”; it’s a formidable wonder to the world of electric vehicles.

Power and Performance

The 2022 Hummer EV is a beast. Three electric motors power this AWD EV, one dedicated for each rear wheel and one shared for the front. Combined, they produce a whopping 1000 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of torque. With that kind of power, it’s no wonder the Hummer EV can go 0-100km in just over 3 seconds in WTF (Watts to Freedom) launch control driving mode.

This off-roading EV doesn’t just talk the talk; it can also walk, diagonally. The rear-steer system can be locked to move in the same direction as the front wheels giving it the ability to “crab walk.” Engaging the “crab walk” not only makes it easy to take this beast off the beaten path, but it also is accompanied by a super cool video-game-style animation on the infotainment screen.

Need to get wet? Well, the Hummer EV can wade through water, too, up to 32 inches.

For everyday commuting, the Hummer EV is surprisingly easy to drive. It has a comfortable ride and is fairly easy to navigate through the streets and parking lots. When it comes to highway driving, the Hummer’s chunky off-road tires can be noisy, but other than that, cruising in this EV is just fine.

Range, Battery and Charging

With GM’s new Ultium battery-pack technology, the Hummer EV uses an 800-volt battery and boasts an estimated 529 km of driving range on a full charge. GMC says that if you plug into a DC Fast Charger, you can recoup 160km of range in about 12 minutes.

DC Fast Charge

  • 20-80% – 42 minutes

Level 2 Charger

  • 20-100% – 16.5 hours

Another way to charge on the go is with one-pedal driving. There are two regenerative brake settings, and using either can bring the Hummer to a complete stop without touching the traditional brake.

Interior and Cargo Space

Ruggedly handsome on the inside, the crew cab interior of the 2022 Hummer EV is simple yet modern, with trendy two-tone seats and lots of nifty storage options. The transparent roof is removable, giving the Hummer an open, convertible feel for those hot summer days, and the roof panels have a special convenient home in the frunk (front trunk) when you go topless.

A large 13.4-inch infotainment display sits front and center on the dash and serves as the hub for all its infotainment and vehicle control systems. Thanks to a partnership with Epic Games (makers of Fortnite), the interface graphics are incredible.

The Hummer comes standard with the following:

  • Apple CarPlay
  • Android Auto
  • WiFi Hotspot
  • GM’s OnStar telematics system
  • 14-speaker Bose Audio System

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The 2022 Hummer EV has a standard hands-free driving mode and works quite well. Other safety and driver-assistance features are:

  • Lane-keep assist
  • lane-departure warning
  • blind-spot monitoring
  • automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection
  • adaptive cruise control
