GMC Hummer EV
The GMC Hummer EV is an upcoming battery-electric pickup truck. The vehicle will be branded as a GMC and be sold at GMC dealerships, rather than being a standalone brand like Hummer was previously.
According to GM, the GMC Hummer EV will be offered with one, two or three electric motors – depending on model. The range-topping model will have an output of over 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 pound-feet of torque (explained here), while being able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just three seconds. Additionally, GM claims that the truck will provide “incredible on- and off-road capability.”
In a presentation in February 2020, GM President, Mark Reuss, also stated that the vehicle will be “the best” electric pickup on the market.
The Hummer EV will ride on GM’s BT1 platform, which is a variant of the body-on-frame GM T1 platform that underpins GM’s full-size pickup trucks (Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra) and SUVs (Chevrolet Tahoe and Chevrolet Suburban, GMC Yukon, Cadillac Escalade).
GM teased the upcoming GMC Hummer EV with two ads during the Super Bowl LIV (2020 calendar year). The spots star NBA legend LeBron James, and can be seen here:
Sizing & Positioning
The GMC Hummer EV will be a full-size pickup. Though dimensions are currently unknown, full-size means that it will be similar in size to the GMC Sierra 1500.
The GMC Hummer EV will be revealed on May 20th, 2020. The first units of the vehicle will begin to arrive at dealers in the fall of 2021 as a 2022 model year vehicle.
Pricing information is not available as of this writing.
As stated, the GMC Hummer EV will be produced at the GM Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant in Michigan, USA.
