The GMC Hummer EV is going to have a full debut this fall. Sadly, the company is not yet going to have an precise date for the premiere. The much-anticipated electric pick-up will begin production almost a year later in the fall of 2021.
GMC plans to debut the Hummer EV at an online show, but it sounds like the announcement could be more than the usual live stream. “We will use both immersive and augmented reality technology to help share our story,” said GM CEO Mary Barra during a radio interview in June.
Getting the Hummer EV on sale in the fall of 2021 means that the pickup will come at the same time as the Tesla Cybertruck and maybe even enter the market. We can’t wait to see how they respond to each other.
The Hummer EV will have more than 1,000 horsepower (745 kilowatts) and will be able to reach 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in just three seconds. The announcement of the launch date also suggests that the vehicle is capable of “remarkable on-and off-road capabilities.”
The General Motor powertrain will use modern Ultium batteries that can sustain capacities from 50 kilowatt hours to 200 kWh. Level 2 and DC fast-charging power of up to 350 kilowatts will allow relatively quick recharging.
Glimpses in the car’s exterior suggest that it has a chiseled, burly look. The six-slat grid provides a design similarity with the previous Hummer’s. The high-tech cabin features large interactive screens for instruments and infotainment. There are also removable roof panels that allow the occupants to enjoy open-air motoring in the EV when the weather is good.
Since a $2.2 billion expansion to become a centre for the manufacturing of electric cars, the site will handle the manufacturing of the Hummer EV. Cadillac ‘s forthcoming EVs will also come from there.
GMC announced today that the all-electric mega truck will debut later this fall and commence production in the fall of 2021. Information on the impressive on-and off-road characteristics of the GMC HUMMER EV will be published prior to its launch.
