Someone just paid $2.5 million for the very first new GMC Hummer EV electric pickup truck to be produced later this year.
It was for a good cause.
In October of last year, GM officially launched its GMC Hummer EV, an all-electric “supertruck” with up to 350 miles of range and a starting price of $80,000.
The vehicle impressed many with a ton of features and decent range for an electric vehicle of this size enabled by GM’s new Ultium battery and drivetrain technology.
GM is bringing the electric pickup truck to production on an aggressive timeline.
They plan to have the first deliveries by the end of the year, but they are starting with a higher-end version of the truck, the Edition 1, with a limited number of trucks available.
It’s not clear how many GM will produce, but the company said it sold out within an hour of taking reservations.
