Compared: 2024 Tesla Cybertruck vs. 2024 GMC Hummer EV Pickup

These space-age EVs are the future of trucking, but which one is better for you?

Several years ago, Tesla teased us with a radical new idea — a pickup truck powered by the company's vaunted EV drivetrain. After a series of fits and starts, production models have finally hit the streets, and the 2024 Tesla Cybertruck serves as a stark departure from the brand's far more conventional-looking commuter cars. The Cybertruck's jagged edges and hyper-modern design have changed the electric vehicle landscape.

But Cybertruck isn't the only model pushing the envelope. General Motors has resurrected and electrified the Hummer nameplate, and its charged-up pickup is a direct competitor to the Cybertruck. Don't let the seemingly Earth-friendly powertrain fool you, either. The 2024 GMC Hummer EV Pickup is just as bulky and brutish as its military-inspired predecessors.

The Cybertruck Matches the Hummer EV's Features at a Lower Price

The Hummer EV's price is almost as brutal as its design. The base 2X trim features dual motors, 311 miles of range, and costs just under $99,000 delivered as of January 2024. It does include standard four-wheel drive, however, which gives it a leg up on the entry-level Cybertruck. The Hummer EV 3X trim adds an extra motor, up to 70 miles of additional range, and $8,000 to the price tag, rounding it out to $107,000.

Cybertruck's pricing feels much more reasonable by comparison. The entry-level model, coming in 2025, starts at a relatively frugal $61,000. It offers only two-wheel drive and a more limited 250-mile range on a single charge.

For something a bit more on par with the Hummer EV 2X, the $80,000 mid-range Cybertruck adds all-wheel drive and delivers 340 miles of range. The top-of-the-line Cyberbeast trim costs $100,000 and boasts a blistering 2.6-second zero-to-60-mph time, which beats the Hummer EV 3X's 3.0 seconds. Either one can easily outrun nearly any sports car.

Hummer Boasts More Capability, but Cybertruck Has the Longer Bed

Beneath the Cybertruck's angular exterior lies an equally sleek cabin, which features a class-leading 18.5-inch center touchscreen. The Hummer's display is also significant but not as big, spanning only 13.4 inches.

One of the Hummer Pickup's defining features is its CrabWalk mode, which allows the truck to position all four wheels diagonally and creep at a 10-degree angle at low speeds. GM says this will aid with parking and offer additional off-road capability.

The Hummer's practicality continues in tow ratings, as the pickup's available 12,000-pound towing capacity bests the Cybertruck's impressive 11,000-pound limit.

Despite these added benefits, the Hummer falls short in terms of bed size. With the tailgate closed, its bed is 5 feet long, which means it's less usable than the 6-foot bed found in the Cybertruck.

Cybertruck's Efficiency Rating Is Not Yet Available, but It's Probably Better Than Hummer's

The EPA shares electric vehicle efficiency ratings in terms of the MPGe unit, an EV equivalent to the traditional miles per gallon. While the production version of the Cybertruck is yet to be rated, the 2024 GMC Hummer EV Pickup achieved 59/48/53 MPGe city/highway/combined. Based on weight and available range options, it's probable the Cybertruck could be more efficient.
