Now the same talented builder has shared a 60-second clip of his homemade Lego creation, showing it off-roading in his garden and even demonstrating the vehicle’s CrabWalk Mode.
This GMC Hummer EV was created using parts from the Lego Technic catalog and incorporates numerous technologies inspired by the real-world vehicle, including four-wheel-drive, four-wheel-steering and the aforementioned CrabWalk Mode. Impressively, it even features adjustable suspension with the ability to immediately raise the ride height by the scale equivalent of six inches – just like the Extract Mode that is offered on the real-world GMC Hummer EV. These electric systems are enabled by the Powered Up parts offered by Lego Technic.
“The Hummer EV is one of the few all-electric utility pickup trucks paving the way for a true automobile industry change and with all the features and technology it combines,” the creator said in the original post on the Lego Ideas website. “I think it would make a great Lego Technic set that can take plenty advantage of the different possibilities of the Powered Up functions.”
In addition to four-wheel drive and adjustable suspension, this homemade GMC Hummer EV also features working doors, a removable cargo cover, a working frunk and a rather detailed interior with four bucket seats. Perhaps our favorite part of this scale Hummer is the working multi-position GMC MultiPro tailgate, which will be offered as standard equipment on the actual GMC Hummer EV.
The Lego Ideas website is a place for talented Lego builders to share their custom creations. If the creator’s idea attracts enough attention on the site, Lego will reach out to the builder and consider the kit for series production. The GMC Hummer EV has not yet been approved by Lego, but we think this lookalike model is definitely worthy of the company’s time. Unfortunately, it has to attract 10,000 supporters to before Lego even gives it a serious look, and it only has around 1,700 supporters as of this writing.
