The GM brand is already aiming to begin production of its GMC Hummer EV pickup truck in the fourth quarter of this year
As GM pushes to deliver more than one million electric vehicles globally by the year 2025, GM will add a full-size (electric) EV pickup truck to its GMC line-up, the latest in a string of EV product announcements by the automaker in the past year.
The EV pickup truck was shared in a slide deck during the media presentation. Duncan Aldred, vice president of global Buick and GMC, didn’t provide further details about the vehicle or when it might go into production.
The GM brand is already aiming to begin production of its GMC Hummer EV pickup truck in the fourth quarter of this year. The GMC Hummer EV, which will be produced at the company’s Factory ZERO assembly plant in Detroit and Hamtramck, with a 350-mile range, 1,000 HP and up to 11,500 pound feet of torque with a starting price of $80,000.
The announcement comes three months after GM announced it would produce an electric Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, also to be assembled at the Factory ZERO plant. The Chevrolet Silverado EV pickup truck, which will have an estimated range of more than 400 miles on a full charge, will be based on the automaker’s Ultium battery platform.
Mark Reuss, President of GM said at the time that the company is positioning the Chevrolet full-sized pickup for both consumer and commercial markets. The automaker plans to offer retail and fleet versions of the Silverado EV pickup truck with a variety of options and configurations.
