The GM design team has shared an early preliminary sketch that it used during the design process for the GMC Hummer EV pickup.

This rendering is described by GM as an ideation sketch, which likely means it was used while the automaker was still deliberating on the final design for the production GMC Hummer EV pickup. It looks quite a bit different than the vehicle that will hit U.S. roads later this year, incorporating angular bodywork, large alloy wheels and a small black-painted tailgate with red Hummer lettering, small square LED taillights mounted high up on the rear fascia. This design sketch also doesn’t have features like the GMC MultiPro tailgate, glass Infinity Roof, power rear drop glass and power tonneau cover.
The design pictured in this sketch also has a lot in common with the production GMC Hummer EV, though. The overall silhouette of the vehicle is the same, while the doors and greenhouse section also have a very similar structure.
The GMC Hummer EV Edition 1, which is the first variant of the EV pickup that will be available, features a three-motor setup producing more than 1,000 horsepower, enabling the 9,000-pound off-roader to sprint from zero to 60 mph in three seconds. A 200 kWh battery gives the pickup an estimated driving range of 350 miles per charge. The vehicle will ride on the dedicated GM BT1 large electric vehicle platform and will be produced at the GM Factory Zero plant in Hamtramck, Michigan. The vehicle also utilizes GM’s Ultium lithium-ion battery design and new Ultium Drive electric motors.
The 2022 Hummer EV Edition 1 will have a starting MSRP of $112,595. The first customer deliveries should commence in either the late fall or winter of this year.
