General Motors has some standout electric models on the way, like the revolutionary electric Hummer SUV and truck. But, recharging the huge batteries on such vehicles will take a long, long time using normal charging ports. That’s why GM has been developing new charging technology.
The automotive company recently filed a patent for a dual charging port. Why is that? Many GM EVs will use a dual-layer Ultium battery, which consists of two separate battery packs wired together. A dual charging system will be able to recharge both battery packs simultaneously rather than one at a time.
Based on MotorTrend’s speculations, this could revolutionize EV recharging. Bigger GMC vehicles for commercial uses and business fleets could be around the corner. Eventually, you could be driving a heavy-duty, all-electric GMC truck for your utility business here in San Angelo.
Through this innovation, GM continues to show how committed it is to making electric transportation more viable for average drivers, including here in San Angelo, Texas. The development of new electric models in the coming years aren’t just a fad; Buick and GMC are doing what they can to make EV ownership easier — wherever you live and whatever you drive.

GMC continues to push the boundaries of what can be done with electrification. Following the hit HUMMER EV, GMC will add the first-ever Sierra Denali EV to the lineup very soon.
In its first teaser image, we only get a taste of how the front of the GMC Sierra Denali EV looks. In place of a standard grille design, the Sierra EV appears to have a body-color panel surrounded by LED lights. In addition, the GMC nameplate in the center appears to glow. Bold LED headlights in the shape of an inverted L flank the center grille.
If you are ready to make the switch to electric, consider the HUMMER EV, available currently as a pickup. This rugged truck is designed to conquer the outdoors. It is available with innovative driving modes including a diagonal crabwalk and an extract mode that lifts the truck by 6 inches. Imagine the new off-road destinations you can try with innovative features like that.

Moab, Utah, is known for its breathtaking vistas and rocky terrain. Because of its fame as an off-roading destination, Moab is the ideal place to test off-road-ready vehicles. And that’s exactly what GMC did earlier this year with the upcoming HUMMER EV.
It’s no surprise that the HUMMER EV crushed off-road testing in Moab. Thanks to features like Extract Mode, Terrain Mode, CrabWalk, and One-Pedal Driving, the Utah desert was no match for the all-electric supertruck. Terrain Mode offers two different braking calibrations that you can either use traditionally with two pedals and a mild braking option or with One-Pedal Driving and regenerative braking. One-Pedal Driving and Terrain Mode together allow you to easily climb steep hills and crawl over rocks in your HUMMER EV without batting an eyelid, making this supertruck a super beast off-road.
CrabWalk allows the HUMMER EV to drive diagonally, which lets the truck traverse even the most challenging terrain with ease. Extract Mode lifts the truck approximately 6 inches higher off the ground, so you can drive over boulders or through deep water with confidence.
The one-of-a-kind GMC HUMMER EV is slated to hit dealership showrooms this fall. Want to learn more about the HUMMER EV and its SUV sibling? Mitchell Buick GMC in San Angelo, Texas, can help you find your perfect match in the HUMMER EV lineup.
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.
GMC is adding to its incredible electric lineup by adding the all-new 2024 HUMMER EV SUV. This off-roader is incredibly capable, high-tech, and eco-friendly, ensuring that every journey is as worthwhile as the destination.
A potent performance
The HUMMER EV SUV comes with an available three-motor Ultium Drive System, which achieves a maximum of 830 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of torque while making zero emissions.* With this system, the SUV leads a Quiet Revolution, creating more relaxing rides even as it goes 0 to 60 mph in about 3.5 seconds, based on GM estimates.
The HUMMER EV SUV is the perfect tactical tool for every adventure off the beaten path. Its available CrabWalk setting uses the available 4-Wheel Steer to move the SUV diagonally and tackle narrow trails. When you encounter a creek or a rocky hill, the available Extract Mode can initiate the Adaptive Air Ride Suspension to lift the SUV around 6 inches.
A spacious interior
The SUV also a comfortable interior with up to 81.8 cubic feet of cargo volume for all of your road trip gear and work supplies. The Power Swing Gate opens up to 48 inches at the push of a button, so loading your items is less difficult. Smart technologies like a 12.3-inch diagonal driver information center display are also close at hand to keep you aware of key information.

The industry-wide transition from gasoline-powered combustion engines to eco-friendly, all-electric powertrains has been a slow one. To give the changeover a much-needed boost, General Motors has pledged to be carbon neutral by 2040 in all of its global products and operations. That includes eliminating tailpipe emissions by 2035 with a GM lineup entirely made up of electric vehicles.
Using a science-based approach, GM is pioneering revolutionary Ultium battery technology, dedicating half of its capital spending to electric vehicle development. As one of the biggest automakers in the world, GM has massive influence on the industry and where it’s headed. This recent announcement by CEO Mary Barra is a big deal for those of us in San Angelo, Texas, who care about the environment and our area’s natural beauty.
The impending electrification of GMC and Buick vehicles is a welcome change that aims to leave a better world for future generations. We look forward to the day when we’ll sell a whole lineup of electric GM vehicles, including zero-emissions versions of the iconic GMC Sierra, Buick Enclave, and more.
Many Buick and GMC vehicles are already very fuel-efficient, so it’s no surprise that GM is taking the next step toward curbing climate change by transitioning to battery-powered electric designs or other zero-emissions vehicle technology that utilizes renewable energy. In fact, the upcoming HUMMER EV — arriving soon at Mitchell Buick GMC — is proof of what clean energy and creative engineering can do.

When you think of cutting-edge innovations in automotive history, the first things that come to mind likely include the invention of the combustion engine, the advent of safety belts, and hybrid electric engine technology. The 2022 GMC Sierra Denali will mark the addition of another major milestone on that list: hands-free Super Cruise™ technology.
Super Cruise™ is a smart driver-assistance technology that uses a complex network of LiDAR mapping data, GPS information, sensors, and live cameras to make semi-autonomous hands-free cruising possible.
