Now GMC still has some tricks up its sleeve to build up on the excitement, if those power figures don’t impress you. The new Hummer EV will get something called a crab mode. GMC says it enhances its off-roading credentials and dynamics. It lets this mammoth electric pick-up truck move diagonally across the terrain and comes in addition to the four-wheel steering. GMC says that it is “tailor-made for off-roading customers.”

Most likely, the Hummer EV will be offered in two body types- Pick-Up and three-row SUV. It has always been admired for its enormous size and robust demeanour and the EV will too emulate the design language, with many elements being carried over, for instance the bold six-slat grille that adds to the imposing front end. That said, the cabin will be a huge step-up from what we have seen in the Hummer before with high-end materials and big digital displays for instruments and infotainment. Surprisingly, there will be removable roof panels as well adding to its lifestyle vehicle status.
