GM is seriously thinking about the release of a zero-emission SUV

Concern General Motors is considering the revival of the legendary brand Hummer. As Bloomberg found out, it is planned to produce electric cars under this brand.

GM is currently deciding which models to include in the range of electric SUVs and pickups. Among other options, it is proposed to use the name Hummer for “green” full-size pickups. With the same probability, electrified versions of Chevrolet Suburban, Cadillac Escalade, GMC Sierra and Yukon can appear on the market, GM President Mark Royce told reporters.

According to the development strategy of the American concern, 20 electric vehicles are planned to be produced by 2023 – these will be cars and crossovers of small and middle classes. Next comes the turn of electric SUVs.

Electric Hummer already exists. Back in 2017, the Austrian company Kreisel Electric presented such an SUV to Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California and a fierce fighter for the environment.

That “green” Hummer H1 was equipped with an Austrian development battery with a capacity of 100 kilowatt-hours, which allowed him to travel on a single charge of up to 300 kilometers. Despite the impressive weight of 3300 kilograms, the SUV accelerates to 120 kilometers per hour.
