On March 27, the very first GMC HUMMER EV—VIN 001— went on the auction block at Barrett-Jackson, the world’s greatest collector car auctions. When the hammer fell, the very first world’s first all-electric supertruck sold to the highest bidder for $2.5 million. One hundred percent of the proceeds went directly to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation to aid our wounded veterans. Talk about a win-win.
The auction was broadcast live March 27 at 4:30 p.m. MT/6:30 p.m. ET. Learn more about it.
The Tunnel to Towers Foundation was named for the path Stephen Siller, a New York City firefighter, took on 9/11 to save those trapped in the towers of the World Trade Center. Every year, Tunnel to Towers honors people who put their lives on the line to protect our country with programs that include building smart homes for veterans who have been catastrophically injured. GMC is an enthusiastic supporter of the foundation. Learn more about it.
