GM’s Upcoming HUMMER EV Will Make 1,000HP & 11,500FT-LBS

It wasn’t long ago that news broke of General Motor’s preparing to unveil an all-new, fully electric version of the HUMMER. The announcement has already generated an enormous amount of interest and hype, though the American auto manufacturer has largely remained tight-lipped on the matter. That changed today, however, as GM has now given us our first taste of the upcoming electric-powered Humvee “super truck.”

Though the company has only revealed a photo of the headlights, grille, hood, and front-end of the preproduction HUMMER EV, the sneak peek does give us a sense of what type of design language and visual themes can be expected when the model is revealed on May 20, 2020 — before it later goes on sale in the Fall of 2021. Slated to be built at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant, the upcoming electrified version of the classic on/off-roader will reportedly boast some seriously impressive performance specs, with the manufacturer claiming the HUMMER EV will generate 1,000hp and an even more ludicrous 11,500ft-lbs of torque — all of which will be on tap instantly thanks to the electric powertrain. GM also says the HUMMER EV will be able to fire off 0-60mph runs in under three seconds. There’s reason to think, with the popularity of Tesla’s Cybertruck and Rivian’s offerings, that this may end up being a pickup, rather than a more traditional SUV. However, in either case, the return of this automotive monolith is something to look forward to.
