2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV Edition 1 looks intimidating in Moonshot Green Matte color [Update]

Update: Interior images added to the story.

The 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV is one of the most rugged electric SUVs customers in the U.S. can buy today. Of the four grades introduced in 2021 – 2, 2X, 3X, and Edition 1, the launch edition was the first to arrive at dealerships. Painted in the communication color ‘Moonshot Green Matte,’ I think the 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV looks determined and intimidating.

The 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV sits on a special electric truck platform internally called BT1, and in this top-of-the-line Edition 1 grade, sports an 830 hp triple-motor powertrain. It’s a mammoth of a vehicle, be it in terms of shape, dimensions, or weight. Yet, it takes just about 3.5 seconds for a 0-60 mph sprint. What’s more, it can be driven diagonally, and its suspension can be lifted by approximately six inches. After all, crazy-fast acceleration is only a bonus; the most defining characteristic of a Hummer is its sheer capability to tread into and extract out of the trickiest of tricky off-road trails.

The battery pack of the 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV Edition 1 operates at double the normal EV voltage – 800 volts, and it can be charged at up to 300 kW. When hooked to a 350 kW DC charger, it can add nearly 100 miles of range in 10 minutes. On a full charge, it delivers an EPA-est. range of 314 miles. However, it has an extremely high energy consumption of 63 kWh/100 mi (EPA-est.), which, in my opinion, defies the core purpose of buying an EV, which is to save the environment.

The 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV Edition 1 features a massive frunk, 22-inch wheels, aluminum fixed side steps, and a power swing gate. Inside, it has 12-way power front bucket seats with 4-way lumbar support and heating, ventilation, and memory functions. Another interior highlight is a 13.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay, wireless Android Auto, navigation capability, and Google Built-in compatibility. My favorite feature is ‘Infinity Roof’ – removable glass panels that allow customers to transform the model into an open-top SUV.

GMC Hummer EV SUV cargo area
The 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV Edition 1 offers 35.9 cu. ft. of cargo space behind the rear seat. Folding the rear seat increases the cargo space to 81.8 cu. ft. Additionally, it has a frunk, offering 11.3 cu. ft. of extra cargo space.

Manufactured at the Factory Zero assembly plant that straddles two Michigan cities – Detroit and Hamtramck, the 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV retails at USD 104,000 (excl. USD 1,595 destination charge) in the Edition 1 grade. Currently, it is available to order only in the 2X and 3X grades, priced at USD 96,550 and USD 104,650, respectively. The destination charge levied on their MSRPs is much higher – USD 2,295.
