Nobody saying, "I got to get me one of the these!"?

Starting at only $80K!



In an amazing twist of fate, General Motors' gas-guzzling Hummer brand, discontinued in 2010, is poised to make a comeback for 2022 as an all-electric sub-brand of GMC. The resurrected Hummer will appear first as a pickup truck and later as an SUV. The new pickup is shaping up to be quite the beast, with up to 1000 horsepower from its top powertrain option, which uses three electric motors, offers an estimated range of 350 miles per charge, and a leaps to 60 mph in a claimed 3.0 seconds. The Hummer EV also features removable roof panels, an optional adjustable air suspension, and a cool four-wheel steering feature that allows it to "crab" sideways—drive diagonally—all of which should make it fun to take off-road. Pickup trucks are the next frontier for electric vehicles, as potential rivals from upstarts Rivian, Bollinger, and Tesla—as well as established automakers such as Ford—are preparing their own entries in this emerging segment.

GM? puh-lease, it will probably be full of PRoC made modules & sub-assemblies.

I'm thinking flop
Absolutely. They can't even get the C8 'Vettes out properly assembled. [www.topspeed.com]

I thought GM sold off the Hummer brand and intellectual property associated with it.

So glad to see a grille/headlight combo on the Bronco that doesn't look like a snarl. Like the colors too.

I would consider it if it had a range extender trailer or a 12 square meter fold out solar panel for that price.

It's a bit cramped. Why pretend when you can have the real thing…

The deal fell through and GM simply shelved the brand until now.

The first GM Hummers were junk. Basically a box on a Yukon frame. Didn't harden anything. They failed miserably off-road.

So, GMC updated the look of the Avalanche and made it EV. To get suckers to buy it, they named it Hummer. The bulk of the buyers will probably never take this off road.

The $80K model wont be ready until 2023-24.

You can only get the $115K model as a pre-order, starting a year from now.. with delviery in early 2022. If they make it that far...

Im sure they will sell plenty, and give away tons to celebrities/sports and drivee tests galore.

It stull suffers from the electric charging infrastructure dilemma -- it has none.

I'm surprised that they are resurrecting the Hummer name, considering that the previous Hummers were garbage.

That said, this looks pretty good....for vaporware (and except for the absolutely absurd pricing). We'll see if they can actually produce anything. The biggest issues for these non-Tesla EVs is that the high speed charging infrastructure for long-distance driving is just not there, and none of the car makers seem to be trying to deal with this major problem.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan
