A few months ago, some General Motors officials said there are a few plans for bringing back the Hummer. Now we have a confirmation.

The Hummer nameplate is back but not as a sole manufacturer. We speak about a name model which will be manufactured under the GMC portfolio.

But there is another interesting thing. This will be GMC’s first electric model and General Motors first electric pick-up truck. The future model will be named GMC Hummer EV and it will have about 1,000 horsepower and a whopping 11,500 pound-feet of torque.

The pre-production version of the electric pick-up truck will be unveiled on May 20 and it will go on sale in 2021. It is capable of running from not to 60 mph in just 3 seconds and it will have an giagantic towing capacity.
