The Hummer that dominated roadways in the early 2000s was many things, but efficient was not one of them. However, General Motors is now ready to rewrite the legacy of the Hummer with a much different revival.
GM is adding a new version of the Hummer to the GMC lineup, and this Hummer will be an all-electric truck.
Both EVs and trucks are growing at an accelerated rate in recent years, so the idea to add a vehicle to the GMC family that belongs to both segments makes a lot of sense. Drivers won’t have to worry about a loss of power for the Hummer, either. In fact, its status as an electric vehicle will actually help increase its power output.
Thanks to a powertrain comprised of advanced electric motors, the Hummer EV will have a reported power output of nearly 1,000 horsepower. This, combined with its incredible all-electric range, will make the GMC EV truck one of the most desirable vehicles on the market. GM has already started marketing the Hummer EV with a series of ads starring basketball legend LeBron James, centered on the silent power of the new Hummer.
The all-new iteration of the Hummer should be joining the GMC lineup sometime in 2021, and we here at Transwest Buick GMC are excited for its coming arrival.
