The GMC Hummer EV has a reveal date
The new Hummer won't be a brand but a supertruck model from the the truck-only brand GMC?!
Does anyone remember Hummer? It was that company that produced the H1, H2, and H3(T)? Schwarzenegger had one and actually pushed for the H1 to be a civilian model - he even had an electric H1. I remember Hummer quite well. I even remember fuh2.com with all the people flipping off the gas guzzling H2. Someone at GM must have surfed that site and listened carefully because we won't see another gas-hog - we're getting a Hummer EV "supertruck"!
Surfing through the site you'll see some impressive numbers. Had you mentioned these numbers even five years ago to me I'd have thought you were higher than a kite. How have we come so far so quickly?
They're advertising 1,000 horsepower, 11,500 foot-pounds of torque, and 0-60 MPH in 3 seconds?! Arnold is dooling right now. You know he will buy one - hell GMC might give him the first one to add more star power with Lebron already hawking a truck that's one year away from release.
The literature from the GMC website states, "The GMC HUMMER EV has zero limits, and our open-air design provides powerful proof. For the unique open-air experience, easily remove the four roof panels and front T-bar to let the world in. We’ll continue to keep you informed as we prepare to show the world our revolutionary all-electric, zero emissions, zero limits supertruck."
At the very end of the video you get to see this! Now this is a sight for sore eyes! Image via GMC YouTube.
You need to visit the website for yourself. The roof comes off, it can CRABWALK, and it has a design language we'd understand from the corpse that was the Hummer brand. The slight teasers you get give away quite a bit. The side profile looks very 'Hummer' especially when compared to the H3T with the high beltline and boxy shape. There is a significant rake to the truck version's rear windscreen when compared to the front - is it traveling backwards?!
We will be seeing the full reveal on October 20th from the sole company to produce a truck-only line... that's a rant for another day.
