Upcoming GMC Electric Vehicles
Automakers are spearheading environmentally friendly practices intending to decrease the carbon footprint through manufacturing electric vehicles. General Motors is dedicated to an all-electric future goal by manufacturing reliable, high-performance electric vehicles using Ultium’s EV architecture. Our tech experts at Meadowland GMC highlight two GMC EV vehicles: the GMC Hummer EV Pickup and the GMC Hummer EV SUV.
Ultium EV Architecture
Ultium is the foundation of modular, flexible EVs. This system paves the way to an electric future through Ultium’s pouch cell design. This design accommodates a wide range of EV styles and sizes, giving GMC a flexible electric model lineup, power, flexibility, and excellent performance on the road. The Ultium system comprises:
- Ultium platform: It features a modular battery and drives unit combinations that are flexible enough to build a wide range of vehicles such as trucks, SUVs, crossovers, and cars with exceptional design, performance, range, and affordability.
- Ultium drive: It’s made up of electric motors, single-speed transmissions, and integrated power electronics that give EVs their power and torque.
- The Ultium battery: This system uses cells stacked either vertically or horizontally to power vehicles. Vertically stacked cells power SUVs and pickups, while horizontally stacked cells power performance vehicles.
- Ultium’s battery management system: The battery management system uses fewer wires for the EVs, which reduces the battery weight and gives it a longer range. The system can also power multiple EV types from a common set of battery components, which makes the batteries reusable for second-life applications.
GMC Hummer EVs
The GMC Hummer is making a grand comeback in the industry with two new electric vehicles: the Hummer EV pickup and the Hummer EV SUV. Both vehicles carry stellar off-road prowess. GMC labels the EV pickup as a supertruck. This is because of the truck’s features and specifications, such as excellent towing capacity, vast power, and long driving breadth. The EV pickup also has standard equipment contrived to make it extremely agile and robust on Carmel terrains.
The GMC Hummer EV SUV will be the second release from the Hummer EV lineup and will launch in 2023 as a 2024 model. This model will be the SUV version of the Pickup but with a few changes. It will be smaller than the Pickup because of a 20-inch difference in height and a shorter wheelbase. From roomy interiors and a four-wheel steering CrabWalk mode to extreme rock climbing abilities, the Hummer EVs are undoubtedly back to dethrone their rivals as the undisputed off-road kings.
Engine and Performance
The GMC Hummer EV Pickup has a three-electric motor powertrain that generates 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft torque, which provides excellent towing capacity. The Pickup is able to achieve zero to 60 miles per hour in just 3 seconds due to the Watts to Freedom launch control driving mode. All-wheel drive is also standard across the Pickup’s lineup.
Up to three electric motors will power the Hummer EV SUV, providing an estimated 830 horsepower. The SUV will have four-wheel steering CrabWalk mode and an adjustable air suspension up to 6 inches. GMC provides an optional Extreme Off-Road package for extreme off-road experiences with special features.
They include extra underbody protection, 36-inch all-terrain tires, and low-mounted cameras for increased visibility while maneuvering. Additional features include a locking front differential, rear motors which can electronically copy a locked differential, and enhanced heavy-duty axles.
The Hummer EV Pickup boasts 79.1 inches, a wheelbase of 135.6 inches, a five-foot cargo bed, and a trunk volume of 11.3 cubic feet. Other exterior features include an animated lighting system, an infinity roof that has modular transparent sky panels, and a MultiPro tailgate.
Exterior features for the Hummer EV SUV include a power swing gate with rear-mounted spare tire, an infinity roof with modular transparent sky panels, power front trunk storage, dominating height of 77.8 inches, and an impressive lighting system.
The Hummer EV Pickup interior offers moon-inspired touches such as the moon-boot footprint on the dead pedal and speaker grilles. It also has a removable roof giving it a convertible vibe. Other interior details include a 14-speaker Bose audio system featuring Centerpoint, a 12.3-inch color driver information center display, and a 13.4-inch color touchscreen infotainment display.
The SUV has rear flat-folding seats to provide a hollow cargo area and a cargo floor that lifts to provide an under-floor concealed storage room. It also possesses a 3-D dashboard that displays both vertical and horizontal air vents. The interior has leather stitched seating surfaces, a thick t-shaped shifter, and a rotary drive-mode selector on the center console.
Charging and Battery Life
Ultium’s battery-pack technology provides the Hummer EV a 329-mile driving range per charge. The Hummer uses an 800-volt electrical architecture and has a 350-kilowatt rapid-charging capacity, which can charge 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes. You can charge your GMC EV at DC fast-charging stations. Although you can charge the vehicle at home with an adapter, the charging speeds are considerably slower.
The automaker recommends charging the EV at the designated stations around Carmel. The GMC Hummer EV SUV has an 800-volt electrical system with fast charging speeds of up to 300 kilowatts. It also boasts a 200-kilowatt-hour battery pack. The SUV can provide a 300-mile driving range after charging.
