The GMC Hummer is one of the most iconic vehicles from the first decade of the 2000s. Its famously large size set it apart from other SUVs and trucks on the market at the time, and it gained a major following. But, Hummers fell out of style and did not survive the decade.
Now, the Hummer name is being revived. According to Motor Trend, the famous Hummer will return as an electric SUV. The 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV is expected to be available in early 2023. GMC is electrifying their popular Hummer SUV
The design of the 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV
The original Hummer caught the attention of consumers simply for being the size that it was, and the new Hummer EV SUV carries on that tradition.
On the surface, the new Hummer looks a lot like the old one, as both are inspired by the military Humvee. The new design is more rounded than the classic Hummer, though, giving the Hummer EV a more futuristic feel.
Those who want to be early adopters for the Hummer EV can purchase an Edition 1. This features a Moonshot Green Matte design that looks even more futuristic.
What features are included with the Hummer EV?
The GMC Hummer EV SUV is engineered to showcase the power that an electric vehicle can have. In terms of horsepower, the Hummer EV ranges from 625 to 830. Using a unique launch system, it can go from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds.
The Hummer EV SUV is powered by the GM Ultium battery, and it will have a range of 250 to 300 miles. This is a technologically impressive range for an electric vehicle as large as the Hummer.
Innovative driving mechanics are at the heart of the Hummer EV. An example of this is the “Crab Walk” mode which allows the Hummer to move all four wheels to drive diagonally. This can help the vehicle make difficult turns and maneuvers.
How can the Hummer EV impact the car industry?
The new Hummer EV addresses the flaws of its predecessor, and returns as a more viable vehicle. For the automotive industry, the Hummer EV also represents an important moment in technology.
The original Hummer was a gas guzzler, and the new electric model will help solve this problem. Many predict that electric vehicles will take over the industry. Having an infamously inefficient SUV transition to electric could be a sign of similar changes in the future of cars.
More industry leaders are developing electric vehicles to bring to the market. If the Hummer EV SUV is successful, it could inspire others manufacturers to focus on electric vehicles.
Motor Trend estimates that the Edition 1 of the Hummer EV SUV will start at $105,595. The rest of the lineup will be launched by spring 2024 and range from $79,995 to $99,995.
The Hummer pickup truck is also being electrified. The SUV is expected to outsell the 2022 GMC Hummer EV pickup.
