The news that the world would get a new Hummer was pretty huge, and the fact that the Edition 1 sold out in one hour goes to show just how excited the US is for the new all-electric off-roader. This new rival to the Tesla Cybertruck and Rivian RT1 promises lots of performance, and targets a higher-end truck buyer, as pricing has so clearly indicated. The 2023 Hummer EV lineup will feature four trim levels, starting with the EV2, followed by the EV2X, EV3X, and finally the range-topping Edition 1. The EV3X will be the second trim level to go on sale after the Edition 1, and in an interesting turn of events, will be sold with the same powertrain as the Edition 1, according to Hummer Nation.
From the factory, the EV3X features three electric motors producing 800 horsepower and a monumental 9,500 lb-ft of torque, with a range of around 300 miles. These figures stand above the 625 hp and 7,400 lb-ft on offer in the EV2 and EV2X. Towering over all of these is the Edition 1, which offers 1,000 hp and 11,500 lb-ft of torque with an estimated range of 350 miles. As if these numbers aren't crazy enough, the Edition 1 will be able to sprint to 60 mph in around three seconds.
The extra performance in the Edition 1 comes at a price increase of $12,600 over the EV3X, for a total of $112,595, with the EV3X costing a hair under $100k at $99,995. The news that the EV3X will be available with the 1,000-hp powerplant will excite those who want the power, but not necessarily all the added features and cost of the Edition 1. Those keen on the idea will have to wait until fall 2022 to get behind the wheel, while the EV2X and EV2 are only expected to show their faces in the spring of 2023. Get ready for the age of super trucks.
