A SMALLER HUMMER EV COULD BE ON THE WAY

The GMC Hummer EV has made quite a splash for General Motors, with over 90,000 customers having reserved the truck or SUV. However, as it continues to be popular amongst buyers, it seems executives are considering launching a smaller and likely more affordable model. Though nothing is official, the Hummer EV’s DNA could transfer into something smaller.

Smaller GMC Hummer EV: Details

According to Bloomberg, “people familiar with the matter” have revealed that a smaller Hummer EV exists within the design studio that General Motors operates in California. Unfortunately, this vehicle is in such an early stage of development that there’s no word on what it looks like yet, though it presumably borrows at least some of the rugged-looking styling cues that characterize the 9,200-pound truck. After all, it should still look like a Hummer, even if it is a smaller version of it. Additionally, the smaller model could bring the Hummer name to the old continent.

Since the smaller Hummer EV hasn’t yet received the green light for production, it’s too early to get any insight into any technical specifications for the truck. But, according to the original report it’s a “priority project,” which means it has a high chance of getting put into production. If and when it does, it’s safe to assume that the midsize Hummer EV will use the Ultium battery technology found under the full-size Hummer EV and many other electric vehicles that General Motors has in the works.

GMC hasn’t commented on the report nor announced plans to launch a second Hummer-branded electric pickup. But, if the information is accurate, the little Hummer is a good couple of years away from reaching showrooms. GM needs to put the Hummer EV SUV into production first. History could be repeating itself for the Hummer brand, as we’ve seen this type of expansion before. It all started with the military-bred H1, which later spawned the H2 in 2002 and then the H3 in 2006. We even saw a smaller off-roader in 2008 with the HX concept, but that was ultimately scrapped.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Ford Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
