At the virtual exhibition CES 2021, taking place these days, the concern GM spoke about its new car Hummer EV.

As part of the exhibition, the American automaker revealed details about the revived GMC Hummer EV electric pickup, presented in the fall of 2020. Actually, we were told the basic data back then, but this time the company representatives focused on the details.

The newest car is based on the new scalable architecture Ultium Drive, which allows engineers to change its size and use the “trolley” to create full-size SUVs, mid-size crossovers and even compact cars and sports cars. General Motors’ Ultium batteries provide the electric vehicle with extra range through greater energy density, low center of gravity and modularity.

As an option, the GMC Hummer EV will receive the ability to install 37-inch wheels with off-road tires, which, together with air suspension with a travel of 150 mm, makes the car a full-fledged SUV. For the same purpose, the electric car is equipped with powerful underbody protection and additional steel protection for battery packs.

In addition to all of the above, the Hummer EV will receive up to 18 cameras that can be installed not only on the body, but also under the bottom of the car. Speaking of batteries, the car supports all existing fast charging standards – the electric car independently determines the type of charging station and mechanically switches the batteries from parallel to sequential charging mode. Thus, a 350-watt station in 10 minutes can recharge a Hummer EV battery 150 kilometers.

In addition to all of the above, the Hummer EV received the Launch Control system, which allows the huge pickup truck to accelerate from zero to 100 km / h in less than 3 seconds, and the latest generation Super Cruise autonomous control system, which is capable of automatically changing lane.
