Inside the 2022 GMC Hummer EV

Fox News Autos Editor Gary Gastelu provides insight into the 2022 GMC Hummer EV and its features.

The GMC Hummer EV is one of the hottest vehicles on sale today.

Flippers continue to sell the low-volume electric vehicle for huge amounts over list.

GMC has only delivered 783 of the 1,000 horsepower full-size trucks so far as production ramps up, and the high-priced pickup remains in high demand.

The fifth one off the production line was sold Oct. 22 at the Barrett-Jackson event in Houston for $225,000.
