According to the GM President, Mr. Mark Reuss the Michigan-based carmaker will produce an all-electric Hummer pickup truck with three electric motors. Of course, the three-motors setup will be reserved for the range-topping version of the truck, while the lower trims will use a 1-motor or 2-motor setup. Furthermore, the model is dubbed as 2022 Hummer EV Pickup Truck, and it will offer several performance packages and different starting prices. The main goal of the company is to meet the customer’s needs.
The forthcoming all-electric Hummer will be presented on May 20, while the deliveries will start in the fall of 2021. However, the fans still wait for more info regarding the design of the vehicle. Yes, we all see the Super Bowl commercial, with the LeBron James himself. Fortunately, the GMC released a couple of images, where we can notice a slender six-slot grille, and LED headlights. Besides, another very prominent feature of the front did e is a rugged bumper, and an offset GMC badging.
2022 Hummer EV Pickup Truck Will Use a Three-Electric Motors Setup
According to GMC, the three-motor setup of the upcoming 2022 Hummer EV Pickup Truck will produce 1,000 hp (746kW/1,014 PS), and 11,500 lb-ft (15,574 Nm) of torque. This outstanding amount of power will launch the electric truck from 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 3 seconds. But, there’s still an installation process of the three-motor setup that needs to be defined. We assume that the 1-motor variant will have an electric motor installed on the rear axle.
On the other hand, the 2-motor version will have motors both on the front and rear axle as well. But, the configuration of the range-topping truck is pretty hard to guess. The perfect solution might be an electric motor powering one axle, and two independent motors separately powering the remaining wheels. Still, we must wait for more info from the GMC. As for the design, the Hummer EV will have sculpted hood, as squared-off mirrors.
Moreover, the roof-mounted lights will be included as well. This exterior detail reminds us of a lot about the design of the iconic H2 model. The interior features are still unknown. But, we expect that GM will include premium materials and the latest technology.
Release Date and Price
As we saw in the Super Bowl commercial, the Detroit automaker will introduce the “Quiet Revolution” concepts for the first-ever electric Hummer. So, the forthcoming truck will provide maximum comfort and an outstanding driving experience. However, the electric pickup segment is growing rapidly.
According to the news form the industry, Tesla is developing a three-motor version of the Cybertruck as well. Here you can take a look at some of the upcoming pickups, that will be rivals to the GM’s model. The electric Hummer will be presented to the audience on May 20. But, the sales won’t start before the fall of 2021. The starting price is still unknown. But, taking into account the General Motors pricing strategy, we assume that the Hummer will be in line with the rest of the class competitors.
