This is what we think GM’s first electric pickup truck will look like, plus the rest of what we know for certain.
Hummer revival rumors have been swirling since 2014. Seriously. But following a not-so-brief nine-year hiatus, the iconic SUV nameplate finally returns – this time in the form of a GMC-badged, fully electric truck. Unfortunately, we don’t know all the details yet as the company is keeping some key facts under cover until May. But there are a few key points you should know.
We know that the GMC Hummer EV will have more than 1,000 horsepower (745 kilowatts) and a reported 11,500 pound-feet (15,590 Newton-meters) of axle torque. That means the truck should be able to hit 60 miles per hour in about 3.0 seconds. The new Hummer also promises to be on- and off-road-ready, as well as built here in the U.S. The EV will call GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant home.
The GMC Hummer EV debuts in full on May 20, 2020, and goes on sale the following fall. But we should know more about the upcoming truck in just a few months.
