General Motors Shares GMC Hummer EV’s Early Design Proposals
If you think the 2022 GMC Hummer EV looks pretty wild the way it is, then the design could have been even more spectacular. General Motors took to social media this week to show off some early sketches that influenced the final design of the electric pickup truck.
Look at those massive tires. This imaginary set of rubber makes the truck even more formidable, especially with all the extra ground clearance. That’s not to say the production model doesn’t impress in this area – it comes standard with 35-inch tires and can accommodate rubber as high as 37-inches. The sketch also reveals a bolder hood design and a very aggressive coating. The rear is particularly different from the final product in one of these sketches, taking a more rounded shape and adopting a unique set of taillights.
As for the interior, GM stuck to the minimalist theme detailed in the renderings. Instead of a lot of buttons and doo-dads, the Hummer EV’s cabin is dominated by large screens. There’s a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster in front of the driver, as well as a 13.4-inch touchscreen on the center console.
GM claims to have hand-sculpted every detail of the Hummer EV before creating digital renderings. The company has hinted that it will release more details on the design process later.
The Hummer EV still has plenty of time to get to dealerships. GMC will debut in fall 2021 with the release of the Hummer EV Edition 1. These top-of-the-range models are already sold out for now. The 3X version will arrive in fall 2022, followed by the 2X version in spring 2023. The base model will not hit the streets until spring 2024.
