This looks like a lot of fun.
After a long hiatus of over ten years, the Hummer is making a comeback - but not as you know it. For the first time in the model's history, the new Hummer is going all-electric. Recently, the new GMC Hummer EV Pickup made an appearance at the Super Bowl LV, where it was driven by Saturday Night Live's Kenan Thompson in a comedic commercial starring Will Ferrell, who encourages America to embrace electric cars to beat Norway's sales.
With reservations already open, GMC's promotional campaign for the Hummer EV continues with a short but sweet video of the electric pickup performing some "powdered donuts" to coincide with Fat Tuesday.
In the video, we get to see the Hummer EV get sideways in an empty parking lot and doing some donuts in the snow. The video concludes with the caption "enjoy a powdered donut on us."
While previous videos shared by GMC have shown a CGI simulation of the Hummer EV, this latest video shows a pre-production test vehicle in action. You can tell this is a work-in-progress prototype because many of the exterior chrome trim elements are missing. With its four-wheel steering CrabWalk mode and plenty of power to play with, it should be easy to have some fun in the snow with the Hummer EV.
Arriving in 2023, the base model will utilize a dual-motor setup, but GMC hasn't announced any power or range details yet. The triple-motor variant, on the other hand, produces a colossal 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to all four wheels. This variant will also cover 350 miles on a single charge and can regain 100 miles of range in ten minutes using fast charging. Customer deliveries of the 2022 Hummer EV Pickup are due to start this fall, with pricing starting at $79,995.
