GMC announced via its Twitter page that it is going to unveil a Hummer-branded electric pickup on October 20. The company also added that pre-orders for the electric vehicle will open on the same day. Actual sales of the vehicle will begin in the fall of 2021.
Initially, a division of the carmaker General Motors (GM) planned to hold a presentation of the Hummer EV model on May 20. However, the event had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
At the moment, it is known that the Hummer EV will receive a power plant with a capacity of up to 1000 l / s and a torque of up to 15 592 Nm, as well as the ability to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (97 km / h) in 3 seconds. It’s no joke, but according to a recent hint from GMC, the electric car will be able to offer the so-called “crab mode”, which will allow it to move diagonally. Apparently, this way the car will be easier to park. Optionally, it will be possible to order a Hummer version with a removable roof.
Sometimes the biggest leaps forward are actually diagonal. The world premiere of the world’s first all-electric supertruck, #GMCHummerEV… See it. Reserve it. 10.20.20.https: //t.co/MM1MgDH8NJ pic.twitter.com/AAWnbvN5xl

At the moment there is no information about the electric vehicle’s range and its other characteristics. Earlier, however, GMC officials said the Hummer EV would be absolutely competitive with other announced electric pickups.
After entering the market, the Hummer EV will have to battle for buyers with electric vehicles like Tesla’s Cybertruck and Rivian R1T.
