GM showed off the Hummer EV pickup truck and SUV to media guests during its EV Day event in Michigan this week. According to Car and Driver, the pickup truck will be called the SUT, while the utility will simply be referred to as the SUV. The SUV ride on the same platform as the SUT pickup and will have similar or identical performance and range.
The Hummer EV SUV and SUT are apparently identical from the b-pillar forward and will feature removable roof panels for both the front and rear passengers. They will also feature a chunky c-pillar, according to Car and Driver, suggesting the pickup will appear quite a bit different than the current GMC Sierra.
Like most other EVs, the Hummer SUV and SUT will feature tech-laden cabins with a 15-inch infotainment screen and 12-inch digital instrument cluster.
GM released details on the new BEV3 electric vehicle platform that will underpin its electric cars, trucks and SUVs this week. Thanks to its proprietary Ultium battery tech, GM’s new EV platform will be able to use 50-200 kWh batteries and will feature 800V fast-charging at up to 350 kW in truck models like the Hummer EV. The automaker has said previously the Hummer EV will have up to 1,000 horsepower and will be able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in around three-seconds when properly equipped.
We’ll get our first glimpse of the GMC Hummer EV when it makes its debut May 20th, 2020, at the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant in Michigan. Only the pickup truck will be shown at this time, however, with the SUV expected to arrive at a later date. Preorders for the pickup will also open on May 20th.
