1y ago

Key Points:

1. The GMC Hummer EV will be officially unveiled on October 20th.

2. It will feature crab mode, which allows the vehicle to drive sideways.

3. You may reserve it on the day it debuts, October 20th.

4. Deliveries will begin in early 2021.


GMC has released a video of the all new GMC Hummer EV, while keeping the full body mostly out of sight. We will finally be able to see the fully unveiled Hummer this October. In this new teaser video, the Hummer is seen from a distance driving down a beach and is shown utilizing the rear-wheel-steering function to turn all four wheels in the same direction and move the vehicle sideways. This is called Crab mode. It is most certainly going to rival Rivian's Tank Turn feature and Ford's Trail Turn Assist, both of which use a similar method.

You may reserve the world's first super truck on its launch day, October 20th.


The GMC Hummer EV is long awaited, and was supposed to be launched in May, but was delayed due to COVID-19. An SUV version is also planned, but will probably join the truck later this year or next year.

    • The instant torque would be insanely useful in off roading, but I get where you're coming from
