It’s been some time since we’ve seen a new Hummer. The last one, the 2006 H3, being built locally and released just four years before the brand went defunct. The rights to Hummer name, however, remain with General Motors who has revealed plans to revive the brand under its GMC sub-brand.
The proposed new Hummer was teased during a 30-second slot during this year’s NFL Super-Bowl and GMC has since revealed more information around the model's specifaction.
The new SUV would be GMC’s first all-electric truck and promises to convey bold design and remarkable capability to the electrified vehicle space. It will sport 746 kW and an interesting torque figure of 15 592 N.m, culminating in a claimed 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) time of just 3,0 seconds. The new model is set to go up against the likes of the Tesla Cybertruck, Rivian R1T and Bollinger B1.
The new Hummer will be officially revealed on 20 May 2020 and will be built at General Motors’ Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant in Michigan.
