Anticipation is off the charts for the electrifying new 2022 GMC HUMMER EV supertruck. In fact, the first one to roll off the production line, the VIN 001 HUMMER EV Edition 1, brought in $2.5 million for American heroes at a recent charity auction in Arizona.
The money from the sale of the VIN 001 HUMMER EV Edition 1 will go toward the Tunnel to Towers Foundation. This organization, which was started in honor of Sept. 11 first responder Stephen Siller, provides mortgage-free homes for badly injured veterans and Gold Star families.
The auctioneer, Barrett-Jackson, waived the usual fees for an auction sale. That means Tunnel to Towers will receive the entire $2.5 million in proceeds.
“One hundred percent of the hammer price from this auction will resonate across America,” said Frank Siller, the foundation’s CEO. “This donation from the HUMMER EV Edition 1 will help build homes for our catastrophically injured veterans to give them their independence and a better quality of life.”
The HUMMER EV is the first-ever all-electric vehicle from GMC, and it’s going to be incredible. The Edition 1 trim will arrive first with 1,000 horsepower, 11,500 lb-ft of torque, and a 0-60 mph time of as little as 3 seconds. It’ll also boast massive off-road capabilities thanks to tech like Four-Wheel Steer with CrabWalk, an adjustable-height suspension, and underbody trail cameras.
The HUMMER EV Edition 1 will go into production toward the end of the year, and we can’t wait. Contact us here at Mitchell Buick-GMC in San Angelo to learn how you can get in line to reserve the HUMMER EV for yourself.
