The 2022 GMC Hummer EV pickup truck has finally dropped cover, showing off the iconic nameplate’s transformation into an all-new, battery-driven off-roader. The new Hummer is offered exclusively with a short bed, crew cab body configuration, but what if GMC offered something else – something like a Hummer EV regular cab?
To find out, the folks over at Hummer Nation drew up this rendering, deleting the two rear doors and bringing the rear body panels in to shorten the pickup’s wheelbase.
“In creating our rendering, we tried to stay true to the proportions of the original Hummer EV pickup,” writes Hummer Nation. “So instead of removing a set of doors and lengthening the bed, we shortened the entire vehicle.”
With a shorter wheelbase, this Hummer EV Regular Cab would have an easier time navigating narrow trails, which, paired with features like four-wheel steering and CrabWalk mode, could make it quite impressive in the rough stuff.
Unfortunately, it appears as though General Motors will stick with the four-door body style when it comes to the new Hummer, which means this Hummer EV Regular Cab will remain nothing more than a rendering, at least for now. Nevertheless, we’d imagine that some pickup fans would still prefer the shorter two-door style seen here.
As a reminder, the 2022 GMC Hummer EV is scheduled to hit production next year, with a launch in the fall of the 2021 calendar year. The first model out the gates will be the top-trim Edition 1, which boasts 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 pound-feet of wheel torque, with the run to 60 mph accomplished in a mere three seconds. Following the Edition 1 will be three lower trims, including the EV3X, EV2X, and EV2.
