The GMC Hummer EV will make its full debut this fall. Unfortunately, the company will not yet provide an exact date for the premiere. The highly anticipated electric pickup will begin production about a year later in fall 2021.
GMC plans to launch the Hummer EV at an online event, but it looks like the reveal could be more than the standard livestream. “We will use virtual and augmented reality technologies to tell our story,” said Mary Barra, CEO of GM, in a radio interview in June.
The Hummer EV going on sale in fall 2021 means the pickup could arrive around the same time as the Tesla Cybertruck and possibly even beat it in the market. We can’t wait to see how they stack up.
The Hummer EV will produce over 1,000 horsepower (745 kilowatts) and be capable of reaching 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in about three seconds. The launch date announcement also indicates that the truck is capable of “remarkable on and off road capabilities”.
The powertrain will use General Motor’s new Ultium batteries that can support capacities ranging from 50 kilowatt hours to 200 kWh. The fast level 2 and DC charging capability of up to 350 kilowatts should allow for fairly quick recharges.
Insights into the styling of the truck indicate that it has a chiseled and rugged appearance. The six-blade grille creates a design link with previous Hummers. A high-tech cabin includes large digital displays for instruments and infotainment. There are also removable roof panels that allow occupants to enjoy outdoor driving in the electric vehicle when the weather permits.
After a $ 2.2 billion overhaul to become an electric vehicle production hub, the site will take over production of the Hummer EV. Cadillac’s next electric vehicles will also come from there.
