SUV unit 001 gmc suv Hummer EV Edition 1 has just been auctioned by Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale and raised $500,000 for Tread Lightly! The nonprofit organization will receive the full price of the hammer, which comes to about $2 million less than the first Hummer EV pickup in 2021.
This SUV version is very similar to the pickup, but it has recently become available. The Edition 1 trim level features 4WD, 830 hp, 800V architecture and a 9-inch shorter wheelbase.
The owner helped an organization that is dedicated to healthy ecosystems. The money will go toward trail restoration and educational programs.
“We cannot thank the GMC brand and Barrett-Jackson enough for this incredible support.said Matt Caldwell, CEO of Tread Lightly. “This funding will make possible numerous trail restoration projects and educational programs in areas across the country. These projects are at the heart of what we do as we work to ‘protect adventure’ for all”.
