May 20th 2020, the official date for the reveal of the new electric Hummer is coming round quick. The return of the Hummer was originally teased in the Super Bowl earlier this year. Sadly, with the coronavirus pandemic taking hold of the globe, and therefore shutting down production of the General Motors factory, a delay was unfortunately inevitable.
And now GMC have confirmed the delay and has yet to give an indication as to when the reveal may now take place, so it looks like we will have to wait indefinitely for the all-important reveal of the electric Hummer. GMC said the following of the delay:
“While we cannot wait to show the GMC Hummer EV to the world, we will reschedule the May 20 reveal date. In the meantime, the team’s development work continues on track and undeterred. We invite all to stay tuned for more stories on this super truck’s incredible capability leading up to its official debut.”
The original plan for the Electric Hummer’s release was to going to be late 2021, with deliveries beginning in 2022, alongside the Tesla Cybertruck. Now for the good news, it doesn’t appear that the release date has changed at all with GMC releasing a new teaser video which appears to announce that the new Hummer will still be available for Autumn 2021.
As you can see from the video, GMC teases us with a CGI simulated version of the Hummer driving on a forest road, but the birds-eye-view prevents us from seeing any of the design details.. very sneaky GMC! However, the vehicle shown in the video appears to have a four-door body style (no surprises there if we’re honest), a glass roof and if the rumours are true, a removable Targa top will also be available.
Just like Tesla’s Cybertruck, the Electric Hummer will be offered with up three electric motor options. The most powerful arrangement will produce an absolutely massive 1000 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of torque to boot, which will allegedly cause the new Hummer to accelerate from 0-62mph in just three seconds – faster than a lot of supercars on the market.
As well as the massive speed this thing will produce, it will also have fully independent air suspension just like the original Hummer H1.
We can’t wait to see what this thing actually looks like and as soon as we hear anything, you’ll be the first to know.
