Having been discontinued in 2010, the Hummer sub-brand of GMC is raised from the dead with the iconic Hummer SUV and Pickup but in an all-electric avatar. It retains its rugged build and gets enhanced off-roading capabilities.
With a rich legacy since 1902, GMC has been in the business of making trucks and over a century later, the Hummer EV marks yet milestone in the impressive journey of the car marque. Discontinued in the ICE-powered guise back in 2010, Hummer is back in an all-electric avatar. The electric pickup truck and the SUV versions have already reached customers. Do these electric giants have what it takes to become a force to reckon with in the EV space?
