Check out GMC Hummer EV vs. Tesla Model X specs and find out which might be right for you. According to General Motors CEO Mary Barra, GMC Hummer EV is one of several new EVs that will help the Detroit-based automaker beat Tesla Model X to the punch by 2025.
The Tesla Model X
First teased in February 2020s Super Bowl spot, now offered through GMs GMC brand, the Hummer EV debuted as an electric pickup and later was to be seen as an SUV.
The GMC Hummer EV rounds out the HUMMER EV family, with a 126.7-inch wheelbase that allows tighter proportions and a nimbler body that offers considerable off-road capabilities.
Like the Hummer EV pickup, Hummer EV SUV will be launched in high-powered, full-load versions, offering up to 300 miles of range, with starting prices above $100,000.
The Tesla Cybertruck and the Hummer EV will be competing for buyers looking for a tough, fully electric vehicle that looks and feels unlike old-school pickup trucks. In fact, GMCs Hummer EV would be directly competing against Teslas Cybertruck, both in terms of vehicle size and in terms of the segment it is marketed to.

To this end, when we finally have the opportunity to see the GM and Tesla Model X EVs side-by-side at some point in the future, a brushed-steel Cybertruck is likely to appear far larger than the GMC Hummer EV.
The Hummer EV has a 135.6-inch wheelbase, which is over one-foot less than Teslas Cybertrucks figure of 149.9 inches. According to GMCs published dimensions, the EV version would be 93.7 inches wide, including the side mirrors.
The electric version is also considerably longer than Teslas Model Y, measuring in at 216.8 inches, as opposed to the 187-inch-long electric SUV.
Compared with the new Hummer EV pickup, one of the more iconic vehicles, has a shorter wheelbase (126.7 inches compared to 135.6), which should make it easier to maneuver into parking situations and on trails.
Following on the treadmarks of the new Hummer EV pickup, which begins production roughly two years early, the next-generation version of the SUV will offer a different bodystyle with a shorter wheelbase when first versions start arriving at GMC dealers in early 2023.
That is right, Rivian has a SUV version of its R1T electric pickup, too, that promises to be just as capable and luxurious as Teslas and Hummers.
Rivian, along with startups Bollinger Motors, and competitors like them, with their own high-end, tough-as-nails, electric pickups and SUVs, are much more likely to appeal to well-heeled outdoorsmen, the kind GMC is trying to capture with its Hummer models.
Generals believes a revived EV Hummer is ideally placed to serve as the halo device to get customers rethinking EVs capabilities – much as Tesla Inc.s Model S sedan has sold smaller Teslas.
