Without a doubt, one of the most ambitious new vehicles to comes from General Motors has to be the upcoming GMC Hummer EV. Combining four-figure output, off-roader chops, and an all-electric powertrain, not to mention the resurrection of the Hummer brand, there’s a lot riding on the success of this machine. Now, we’re previewing what it’ll look like in the following GM Authority Exclusive Rendering.
One glance is all it takes to confirm – the upcoming GMC Hummer EV is not your typical pickup truck. The front end takes inspiration from the broad central grille treatment seen on older Hummer vehicles, which is a look that GM has already teased. The corners get a familiar wheel design as well.
As for the details, we gave the new all-electric three windshield wipers and a short bed, two features confirmed at the vehicle’s limited media debut during the recent GM EV Day event. The rear fender gets a prominent “HUMMER” graphic to finish it off.
In addition to the pickup seen here, the 2021 GMC Hummer EV will also be offered with an SUV body.
With regard to the setup under the skin, the new Hummer EV will ride on GM’s BT1 all-electric vehicle platform and draw power from the company’s latest Ultium battery packs, while optional air ride suspension will keep it glued to the road. A range of drivetrain and battery configurations will be offered, including single-, dual-, and three-motor setups. Sitting at the top of the heap will be a 1,000-horsepower monster that will run to 60 mph in three seconds.
The cabin space will feature a large 15-inch infotainment screen, which will pair with a 12-inch digital instrument cluster.
The new GMC Hummer EV is expected to debut in May, with the first units arriving at dealers in the Fall of 2021 for the 2022 model year. Production will take place at the GM Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly facility in Michigan.
