GMC announced this morning that its all-electric Hummer EV pickup truck will debut this fall, with reservations opening at the same time and production to begin in the fall of 2021. The production date for the SUV version will be announced later. More details will be revealed closer to the actual debut, but we’ve gotten our clearest look yet at both stylized silhouettes of the two vehicles as well as looks at a clay model and prototype in the accompanying video.

The clay model and prototype, as well as the silhouettes, have clear design heritages back to the last production Hummer models, though without the seven-bar grille design since there’s no need for a traditional grille on an electric vehicle. The styling is still chunky and aggressive and seems to hew very closely to what a 2020 Hummer might look like — if Hummer hadn’t stopped producing vehicles in 2010, that is.

Check out the full teaser video below:


Additional details in the video include things like Adrenaline mode and Crab mode — likely driving modes for sportier driving and low-speed rock crawling, respectively. According to the video, the Hummer EV will also use GM’s new Ultium batteries and feature a “next-gen” version of the automaker’s Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving technology. 

There are also details we’ve already heard before, like GMC’s estimates of 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 pounds-feet of torque (in the past, GMC would not confirm whether the latter figure represented engine torque or wheel torque, two different measurements) and a 0-60-mph time of 3 seconds. We also knew about the removable roof panels, but there will also apparently be an Infinity Roof, likely a transparent glass roof. Whether the removable roof panels and the Infinity Roof are compatible isn’t, well, clear.
