GMC upended the off-roader world with the debut of the GMC Hummer EV on October 20th, 2020. However the new Hummer is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to new all-electric GMC models, as it’s estimated that 40 percent of GMC’s lineup will be fully electric by 2025.
Alongside the new GMC Hummer EV pickup truck revealed in October, General Motors will also introduce a new full-size SUV version of the new Hummer EV. We got our first glimpse at the upcoming SUV in November during the Barclays 2020 Global Automotive Conference, during which the Hummer SUV was parked in the shadows directly behind Executive Vice President Global Product Development, Purchasing & Supply Chain, Doug Parks.
Although details on the new model are still under wraps, the GMC Hummer EV SUV is expected to come with the same specs and equipment as the pickup model, but with a new SUV body on top.
In addition to the GMC Hummer EV pickup truck and SUV, General Motors confirmed it has two other all-electric GMC models in the works, including a second EV pickup truck, as well as an EV crossover.
The second pickup mentioned is expected to be closely related to the upcoming Chevy EV truck, the latter of which was also teased during the Barclay’s conference, parked in the shadowsbehind GM’s chief EV officer, Travis Hester. Details on the upcoming all-electric GMC crossover are even murkier, but like all four GMC models mentioned here, it too will source motivation from GM’s Ultium battery and electric motor drive technologies.

As GM Authority has covered in the past, General Motors is planning to launch 30 new EV models worldwide by 2025, two-thirds of which will be sold in North America. Per statements made by GM CEO Mary Barra, the automaker will invest a whopping $27 billion to develop its all-electric vehicle tech and autonomous vehicle tech, devoting more than half of its capital spending and product development team towards EV and AV product programs.
