  • The announcement is the most recent in a series of disclosures over the last year as GM strives to deliver more than 1 million EVs at the global level through 2025.

American multinational automotive corporation, General Motors, has reportedly announced the addition of the GMC Hummer EV, a full-size EV pickup, to the company’s GMC lineup. The announcement is the most recent in a series of the firm’s EV product disclosures over the last year as it works towards the delivery of over 1M electric vehicles at the global level by 2025.

The electric vehicle pickup was shared through the media presentation in a slide deck. The VP of global Buick and GMC, Duncan Aldred, did not provide any further details regarding the vehicle or when it is likely to go into production.

However, according to Mark Reuss, the President of GM, the company is placing the Chevrolet full-sized pickup for both commercial and consumer markets. The automaker intends to provide fleet and retail versions of the Silverado electric pickup with numerous configurations and alternatives, added Reuss.

It is to be noted that the announcement has been made three months following General Motors’ disclosure regarding the production of a Chevrolet Silverado electric pickup truck, that will be put together at the firm’s Factory ZERO plant situated in Detroit and Hamtramck. Set to be developed on the basis of GM’s Ultium battery platform, the Chevrolet Silverado electric pickup truck will come with an anticipated 400-mile range on a complete charge.

For the record, General Motors is already intending to commence the manufacturing of its GMC Hummer EV in the Q4 of 2021. The GMC Hummer EV will be produced at the automaker’s Factory ZERO assembly plant. With a starting price of $80,000, the vehicle will come with up to 11,500 pound feet of torque, 1,000 HP, and a range of 350 miles.
