2022 GMC Hummer EV

GMC has officially revealed just three specifications for the upcoming revival of the Hummer nameplate: total 1,000 horsepower, total 11,500 lb-ft of torque, and a 0-60 mph in 3.0 seconds.

The additional news comes to us courtesy of Seeking Alpha financial analyst site. It is based on the information released during the quarterly earnings call. This reports suggests that GM’s modular battery design would allow for a battery capacity of 144 – 192 kWh. Also, the Hummer EV will have unique off-road and towing focused versions with different configurations. This makes sense since most other SUVs and trucks have off-road specific models, like the Chevy Tahoe Z71 or the GMC Yukon AT4. While other trim levels are better suited for towing heavier trailers.

The report also says that GM will host an electric vehicle event in Michigan on March 4, 2020. The company will show the next generation all-electric Cadillac midsize crossover which will be approximately the same size as the current Cadillac XT5.

Here is another very telling quote from Mark Reuss, GM President.

When we go to market, we’ll have 1-motor, 2-motor, 3-motor versions, offering different ranges, different performance at different price points to meet the customers wherever they may be. If the customer wants a basic package, we’ll have that. If the customer wants true off-road capability and towing capability, we’ll have that too. Whether or not we are first on the market, which we just might be here because we’re fall of next year, I am totally confident that we are going to be the best on the market, because we’ve engineered this strategy and this approach with these component sets, and I’m really excited about it. Our offering won’t be just one ticket. This will be architected to be scalable and used for multiple brands with multiple variants for multiple customers.“– Mark Reuss, Feb 5

As announced by GM before, the GMC Hummer EV will be formally revealed on May 20, 2020.
