Furthermore, the origins of GMC Hummer EV go back to the Hummer brand of General Motors. So, as we can see, more and more SUV manufacturers are going electric such as Rivian. However, it's high time to turn the tide for Hummer. In the same notion, GMC is going electric with this fully electric Hummer. This all-electric super truck will be available as a pickup and an SUV.
The Design That Stands Out
First of all, the hummers are known for their road presence with rock-solid design. The GMC Hummer EV is no different. The distinctive front lighting, along with the low turret roof profile, makes it unique. In addition, the upright windshield and unique tail lamps also add to its beauty. The power swing gate at the back and rear drop glass increase accessibility at the rear.
Furthermore, edition 1 of the SUV comes with a moonshot green matte paint finish. The multi-pro tailgate in Hummer EV Pickup makes loading and unloading easy. The infinity roof, along with transparent sky panels, gives a more immersive experience of the sky. Additionally, the transparent sky panels are tinted to deflect the sun. So, it keeps you protected from the sun while keeping your panoramic view intact.

Furthermore, the Interiors are uniquely designed with comfort and convenience in mind. So, irrespective of outside terrain, you can enjoy every moment. The 12.3-inch driver information display, along with a 13.4-inch color touch screen, shows everything you need. The positioning of both displays is easily accessible to the driver. In addition, the rear flat-folding seats create more room for luggage. The large storage compartment on the driver-side rear quarter panel increases the storage space.
Furthermore, the interiors are available in two color schemes - lunar shadow interior and lunar horizon interior. The lunar shadow interiors are jet black, and Taupe creates a dark appearance. The Lunar horizon interior is in jet black and light grey.

Furthermore, the independent front and rear suspension add to highway comfort and off-road handling capability. Additionally, the front and rear e-lockers provide the necessary traction. Heavy-duty ball-spline half shafts avoid unwanted steering feedbacks on rough terrain. The full underbody armor includes skid plates, steel plates, shields, and rock sliders. This armor keeps important underbody parts like the battery pack and differential safe.
Steering and Suspension
