General Motors has confirmed that it will be bringing back the Hummer nameplate on an all-electric truck under its GMC brand.
The GMC Hummer EV truck will feature 1,000 hp, 11,500 lb.-ft. of torque, and go 0 to 60 mph in three seconds.
“GMC builds premium and capable trucks and SUVs and the GMC HUMMER EV takes this to new heights,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick and GMC. “We are excited to debut our revolutionary zero-emissions truck during the biggest night in TV advertising.”
The Hummer ad is scheduled to play during the second quarter of the Super Bowl. The ad will highlight anticipated performance of GMC’s EV Hummer as well as the fact that it will not generate any noise or emissions.
The GMC Hummer EV will be revealed on May 20, 2020. It will be built in Michigan at General Motors’ Detroit Hamtramck assembly plant. Initial availability is expected in Fall 2021.
GM recently announced that it will be investing $2.2 billion in this assembly plant to produce all-electric trucks and SUVs.
