Hummer’s Rebirth Had Many Design Origins

Despite being brand new and all-electric, the GMC Hummer EV is unmistakeable as anything but, well, a Hummer. It modernizes the iconic look of the original, with a luxury and off-road focus. And based on the high volume of orders, the general public seems to like the styling quite a bit. There are currently thousands of reservations on the waiting list for an Edition 1 preorder. Thanks to a post on the General Motors Design Instagram, we can share a look into the design process with some early sketches.

The sketches range from renderings and drawings that look pretty similar to the final product, and some designs that are clearly different. All of them have the standard enormous wheels and exaggerated proportions characteristic to design sketches, and look fantastic. Check them all out in the post below, before we unpack which sketches have ideas that made it to production.

The first pairing has one Hummer EV signature: the LED light bar that incorporates the hallmark six box grille. While the bottom sketch is more similar to the final product, the top Hummer has a very interesting 3D square that shows depth. Both of them also have the three amber lights needed for a vehicle the width of the Hummer built into the roof, like the final product.

On the second page, the red Hummer EV sketch has a tailgate more similar to the final truck, with vertical taillights and “HUMMER” written across the back. That being said, there is far more sculpture to this design. On the third page, the top design has a feature that is found on other off-roaders like the Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator, a fold down windshield. That hasn’t made it to the production model. This design also has removable doors, which aren’t expected to happen.

Maybe our favorite design is on the top of the second to last page. It’s the most angular and boxy of them all, and mores than the final product. The grey-tan color harkens back to the Hummer’s military origins, and everything is edgy and crisp.

Of all the designs, leave a comment down below letting us know which is your favorite, and if you wish the final product looked more like one of these sketches.
