The recent GM EV Day is providing us with yet more informational tidbits on the automaker’s up-and-coming all-electric products, including the new GMC Hummer EV pickup. The latest is that the all-electric truck will come with a short bed and crew cab with regard to the body configuration.
According to media in attendance at the event, the GMC Hummer EV will feature a five-foot bed length, which will pair to a crew cab for passenger accommodations. The five-foot bed will put the Hummer EV on par with one of its chief rivals, the Rivian R1T, which is also expected to offer a five-foot bed. Meanwhile, the more outlandish Tesla Cybertruck will offer up a 6.5-foot bed.
It’s uncertain at this time if GMC will offer additional body configurations on the new Hummer EV. However, we do know that aside from a pickup truck model, the new GMC Hummer EV will also be offered in an SUV body style. As we covered previously, the Hummer EV will also feature a removable targa top for quick access to unlimited headroom.
The rest of the details include construction on GM’s new BT1 all-electric vehicle platform and utilization of the automaker’s latest Ultium battery technology. Buyers will choose between a range of different drivetrains, including single-, dual-, and three-motor configurations, with the range-topper doling out upwards of 1,000 horsepower and sprinting to 60 mph in just three seconds. Optional air suspension will keep it all shiny side up.
We also know that the GMC Hummer EV will go big on tech, including a 15-inch infotainment screen and a 12-inch digital instrument cluster inside the cabin.
More info is expected by the time the GMC Hummer EV debuts on May 20th, with production taking place at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck facility.
