General Motors Corporation has confirmed the resurgence of the Hummer name and has shown the debut image of a model that will appear under this name. The debut of the electric pickup GMC Hummer EV will take place on May 20 this year, but its sales will start only in the fall of 2021.

In a single shot, the GMC Hummer EV is shown in front, with the manufacturer emphasizing that this is a pre-production sample. In the photo you can see LED optics over the entire width of the body, running lights on the roof and a small GMC nameplate.

It is already known that Hummer will become not an independent brand, but a family of electric cars. Its production will be launched at the Detroit-Hamtramck facility in Michigan and will be sold through GMC dealerships.

 General Motors also declassified some details regarding the pickup. For example, the performance of its power unit will be 1000 hp. and 15 592 Nm of torque (the value is indicated on the wheels taking into account the gear ratio of the gearbox). New to 60 miles per hour (97 km / h) will be able to accelerate in 3 seconds. It is estimated that a pickup will be able to drive about 650 km on a single charge.

 The electric pickup will be built on the BT1 platform, designed specifically for battery-powered SUVs. This is one of the options for the GMT T1XX architecture that underlies the Chevrolet Silverado pickup, the new Tahoe and Suburban, as well as the future Cadillac Escalade. Hummer pickup will begin to produce at the end of 2021. For the sake of this, GM will re-equip the D-HAM Detroit enterprise: they will invest $ 2.2 billion in the plant, and in addition to the pickup, the Cruise Origin UAV will be assembled there.
