High-performance and luxury car specialist Clive Sutton has brought the first GMC Hummer EV Pickup to the UK. The fully-electric truck pairs more than 350 miles of zero-emission range with blistering supertruck performance.
With 1,000hp and 1,200lb-ft torque the electric Hummer can hit 60mph in just 3.3 seconds, making it supercar fast while boasting expansive seating for five, plus bags of cargo space. While its monstrous speed on road is impressive, its off-road capabilities are out of this world. An optional ‘Extract’ mode allows the entire truck to raise around 15cm, while the air suspension also works to optimise aerodynamics by lowering the car at motorway speeds.
Measuring 2.0 meters high, 2.34m wide, and more than 5.5m long, the colossal Hummer EV guarantees presence wherever it goes. Despite its bulk, the Pickup has the manoeuvrability of a much smaller vehicle thanks to its optional ‘Crabwalk’ capability that utilises rear-wheel steering to enable the truck to traverse diagonally at low speeds.
Clive Sutton, Founder and CEO: “As soon as the GMC Hummer EV was announced our customers have been desperate to see the model in the UK! Now that we have imported the first one, we anticipate orders outstripping supply as buyers clamour to be among the first in Europe to own this electric supertruck.”
Off-road, owners can benefit from independent front and rear suspension, full underbody armour, rock sliders and the optional ‘Ultravision’ system, which utilises 18 cameras to provide every possible viewpoint, enabling accurate navigation around obstacles or in tight spaces.
Media reports suggest slow production volumes for the new Hummer EV with as few as 12 built a day. This is seriously constraining availability and of the 80,000 pre-orders taken, less than a thousand have been delivered to customers, so demand for the model in the States is sky high. As US retailers are not constrained by the ‘Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price’ (MSRP), the Pickup currently sells for more than $200k in the domestic market.
When the Hummer lands in the UK, it costs substantially more with international shipping, VAT duty, local registration fees, and vehicle conformity testing taken into account. So, the Edition 1 model costs around £320k on-the-road (subject to the US price and current exchange rates). Within the price the Sutton team handles the entire process from end-to-end providing a manufacturer-style experience for customers. The Sutton team also offers a two-year / 50,000-mile warranty with each Hummer EV.
Clive Sutton specialises in importing some of the most unique, powerful and desirable vehicles from the US and around the world and is taking 2023 customer orders now for the GMC Hummer EV Pickup and SUV.
