According to the recent rumors from the web, General Motors plans to release the first electric pickup! On top of that, it will probably wear the famous Hummer badge, thus it will be known as 2021 Hummer Pickup Truck. We all know a tragic story of a once trendy GM’s brand. The Hummer was discharged during the company bankruptcy restructuring. Back then, a lot of Hummer die-hard fans were troubled, but that was the right thing to do, and very reasonable move.
The company shifted its focus from fuel-thirsty SUVs to more efficient and smaller vehicles. But, as the new decade approaching, things are very different from the time of GM’s bankruptcy restructuring. SUVs, pickups, crossovers are the main stars of the industry, with a significant fan base worldwide. So, the dominant company like General Motors must find a way to jump back in the game. Indeed, the Detroit-based automaker preparing a hell of a comeback.
Hummer Pickup Truck – The GM’s First Electric Pickup
As we mentioned in the introduction paragraph, General Motors will develop the electric pickup shortly. Could it be 2021 Hummer Pickup Truck? The vice president of global forecasting at AutoForecast Solutions, Sam Fiorani, certainly thinks so. The recent report from the Detroit News referred to additional forecasting sources, which claims that General Motors are already working on an electric Cadillac and GMC Sierra.
But, according to Fiorani, the all-electric pickup takeover will come with a new electric utility vehicle for an unconfirmed nameplate. We firmly believe that it will be a resurrected Hummer. Earlier this year, the automotive experts suggest that General Motors will add an enigmatic “M-brand” to the electric lineup. The release date of this mysterious utility vehicle is late 2021. Therefore, once again, we assume that it could be the Hummer. In any case, the future EVs will be built at the Detroit-Hamtramck factory, that’s 100% inevitable fact.
What to Expect From 2021 Hummer Pickup?
The forthcoming 2021 Hummer Pickup Truck will be a low-volume model, probably before General Motors boost the production with the announced 2023 Hummer SUV. So, expect to see an electric GMC pickup, and after that, Cadillac Escalade, both in six min six-month intervals. Also, keep in mind that he currently empty segment is getting slowly but surely filled. Besides the Cadillac, GMC, and Hummer models, expect to see the Ford F-150, as well as the new electric Lincoln SUV.
Besides, new players like Rivian, StreetScooter, Bollinger, Atlis, and Hercules will attempt to raise to the top of the class. Not to mention the automakers that make electric crossovers and ones that convert existing cars into EVs. But, here’s the truth – none of these companies comes with a consistent profit from producing and selling EVs. And do they quit? Hell no.
General Motors will invest even more money into a battery-electric platform that will carry their future cars. This platform is known as the BT1 platform, and it should be a combination of a unibody architecture and traditional body-on-frame construction. All in all, exciting times are in front of us. We must wait and see what will become of these rumors and predictions. One thing is sure – the world is ready for a new Hummer.
