The original release date of 20 May was abandoned due to the impact of COVID-19, but GMC have announced that a new date of “late fall” has been locked in, with order books to open at the same time. In Aussie terms, this translates to November.
GMC’s first electric truck, the Hummer EV powertrain will produce a claimed 1,000hp (745kW) maximum power and 11,500lb/ft (15,591Nm) maximum torque and be capable of reaching 60mph from standstill in 3 seconds.
No other specifications have been released, but in the model’s dedicated website, it says the Hummer EV will have an “open air” design, with removable roof panels in the vein of the Jeep Wrangler and recently-released new Ford Bronco.
No more information or new images have been presented since the first couple of teasers back in February, but GMC says more details on the “remarkable” on- and off-road capability of their all-electric “super truck” will be released closer to that November-ish reveal.
“GMC builds premium and capable trucks and SUVs and the GMC Hummer EV takes this to new heights,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick and GMC.
Following the reveal of the GMC Hummer EV later this year, production will commence in approximately 12 months’ time.
