After seeing this design, the real-deal seems like a Bummer

LISTEN 02:53

There’s been so much buzz surrounding the Hummer’s resurgence since the beginning of this year. Right from the Super Bowl advertisements to the delay in launch. Finally, last month, GMC launched the Hummer EV in all its glory. While the talking point was how it went from being a fuel guzzler in its past life to an environment-friendly vehicle, there were some talks about its looks as well. It seems to have a strong road presence, but no one called it a handsome truck exactly.

Now, GM revealed a few sketches of what the Hummer EV could’ve been and we can’t stop banging our heads against the walls. That good? Oh yes!

Looks Pretty Cool, Doesn’t It?

Yes, looks are subjective and to each his own.

But, there’s no denying that the sketches revealed by GM on Instagram show how cool the Hummer could’ve been.

It looks a lot more aggressive and sharper with all those cuts and creases, and an absolute stunner, especially if you pit it against the Tesla Cybertruck. You may argue that it looks like a concept version and may not have made it to production, but strong glimpses of this on the production model would’ve pulled in customers to whom looks matter the most.

In my opinion, the rear isn’t its best angle and makes the tilted-in tailgate look like a dumper truck, but apart from that, it’s a beauty. The truck bed isn’t just ‘fitted’ into the body. Don’t get me wrong; it’s well done on the production version too, but the boomerang-shaped scoops make the whole integration seem very fluid and sporty, thus adding more cred to the “supertruck” persona of the Hummer EV. The bumper design, however, seems to be quite similar to the model unveiled.
