The debut of the new GMC Hummer EV, the first in a line of premium electric SUVs and pick-ups to use the revived badge, has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. American automotive giant General Motors (GM) confirmed earlier this year that it would resurrect the Hummer name (last used in 2009) at an event in Las Vegas on May 20, 2020. But that event has now been postponed to an as-yet-unspecified date. Perhaps "Even as we work to help flatten the curve, our mission to build the first ever GMC Hummer EV remains the same."
However, GM said the Hummer remains "on track" to go on sale in autumn 2021, saying in a statement that "development work continues on track and undeterred." It added, "Even as we work to help flatten the curve, our mission to build the first ever GMC Hummer EV remains the same."
The Hummer eSUV will arrive under the GMC brand with a claimed 1,014hp and 15,592Nm of torque and be capable of 0-96kph in 3sec. Few other details are known about the new model but it is promised to deliver "incredible on- and off-road capability".
