If you’ve ever dreamed of being a real life Jay Leno and driving cars before any else or perhaps you’re attempting to boost your social media followers, “owning” a GMC Hummer EV for a day might not be a bad way to start. Thanks to a listing on Turo, you can rent a new Hummer EV for less than $1,000 a day. While the GMC Hummer EV still creeps along production with a backlog of orders to tend to, this might be the only way to get behind the wheel of one for a while. Or at least see what living with a Hummer EV is like.
Turo, the automotive equivalent to Airbnb, currently features a host in Oakland Florida who is offering up his GMC Hummer EV for daily rental. One day will cost exactly $995 while checking it out for three days or more will net you a discount of $30 making it just $965 per day. Those numbers put the owner netting $14,475 if he had it checked out for just 15 days. Good hustle.
As is standard with anything too good to be true, there are certain requirements you need to meet before even reserving your rental. You must; be at least 30-years-old, place a $750 deposit down before getting the key, and you can’t check the all-electric Hummer out without opting for the protection plan.The Hummer EV carries a hefty price tag of nearly $113,000 and as such demands caution and care when driving, thus the host’s requirements are totally justified.
The owner allows up to 150 miles of travel a day and requests at least 30 miles of charge left on the Ultium powered beast upon return. If the cost of just renting the off-road warrior is too much to cope with, there is a free alternative. The video game franchise Call of Duty has recently announced its collaboration with GMC and revealed the game will soon feature the crab walking, desert ruling, all-electric Hummer in its upcoming title Warzone 2.0.
