The upcoming GMC Hummer EV is shaping up to be one very impressive machine, with upwards of 1,000 horsepower on tap, a 0-to-60 mph time as quick as 3 seconds dead, and, according to our sources, a conservative range-per-charge of roughly 400 miles. Now, we’re learning that the electron-powered pickup will also feature a removable targa top.
The news comes from the recent GM EV Day event, during which the automaker provided a ton of new info and insights with regard to its new all-electric products. Although photography was prohibited, media in attendance were still provided with a number of details on the forthcoming GM EV products, including the news that the GMC Hummer EV would come with a removable targa top.
GM will offer two body styles for the electrified Hummer, including a pickup truck variant and an SUV, with the pickup debuting ahead of the SUV model in terms of launch cadence. Both body styles will feature a removable targa top that will fit into the EV’s front trunk space when removed.
The extra headroom will be an interesting addition for the model, providing passengers with a solid dose of blue sky on demand.
Under the skin, the GMC Hummer EV will ride on GM’s new BT1 all-electric vehicle platform, and come with a tech-heavy interior featuring a 12-inch digital instrument cluster and 15-inch digital infotainment screen.
Power options will include single-, dual-, and three-motor setups, each with its own range, performance, and price points. The top-dog model will be the 1,000-horsepower, three-second-to-60-mph model already mentioned. We also know that the GMC Hummer EV will offer optional air suspension components.
Look for the battery-powered Hummer to make its big public debut on May 20th. Production will take place at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant in Michigan.
