General Motors has released details on the official accessories that will be available for the GMC Hummer EV, including a convenient roof rail set for carrying additional cargo and larger items on the battery-electric vehicle’s roof.
The roof rails, officially referred to by GMC as ‘Roof Cross Rails’, will be available for both the GMC Hummer EV Pickup and the GMC Hummer EV SUV. The rails are compatible with the optional Infinity Roof for the vehicles, allowing users to enjoy the open-air feeling of the transparent removable roof panels while also benefitting from the added practicality of the roof rails.
“From bikes to kayaks, these Roof Cross Rails will offer a versatile solution to storing cargo and gear with the GMC Hummer EV Pickup and SUV,” the automaker says on its website. “The rails are even compatible with all configurations of the Infinity Roof. So whether the Sky Panels are in place or removed for fresh air and sun, you can still carry what the latest adventure calls for.”
The black roof rails have a slight curvature in them that follows the contour of the GMC Hummer EV’s roof and feature Hummer-branded end pieces. Pricing for the roof rails has not yet been disclosed, however we’re expecting more details on this official accessory rack to be revealed in the run-up to the GMC Humme EV Pickup’s official launch this fall.
GMC is planning to offer an entire range of official accessories for the electric off-roader, which it says will be specifically tailored to the needs of Hummer buyers.
“The GMC Hummer EV accessories portfolio will be a unique lineup, offering all-new personalization choices that address the needs of extreme off-roaders and advance the convenience and capabilities associated with owning an all-electric supertruck,” said GMC accessory product manager Brantley Johnson.
The GMC Hummer EV pickup will enter production at the GM Factory Zero plant this fall, with the GMC Hummer EV SUV joining the pickup variant in early 2023.
