Those suicide doors look neat, but it’s unlikely that GM will go for those

The Hummer’s transition from extinct gas-guzzler to reborn electric vehicle, albeit in pickup truck shape, has taken the car world by storm. And that’s an understatement. GMC cleverly released the right amount of specs to keep people on their toes and stir the online medium, yet nobody knows what the GMC Hummer EV will look like.

GMC’s cryptic picture of the truck’s front end doesn’t reveal much but it was all some needed to create a digital interpretation of what the Hummer EV might be.

So far, the design bit remains the GMC Hummer EV’s biggest secret

Concretely, all that’s been sprinkled online through official channels has to do with the Hummer EV’s power, torque, and 0-60 mph sprint time. According to GMC, we’re looking at up to 1,000 horsepower, 11,500 pound-feet of torque, and three seconds flat from naught to sixty, joined by the claim that the Hummer EV is in a class by itself, a teaser video featuring LeBron James, and the said teaser picture of the truck’s front grille.

We also know that the GMC Hummer EV is coming in 2021 as a 2022 model, while Car and Driver reckons it should cost at least $70,000. Looking at Tesla’s powertrain schemes for the Cybertruck, we can assume that the Hummer EV will be offered with one, two, or even three electric motors, with the latter being the most potent of the bunch.

In all honesty, we’re happy to chew on these details for now, but we’d also like to know what the Hummer EV looks like, especially since it’s slated to take the shape of an out-and-out pickup truck. Luckily, Instagram account @carlifestyle gives us a glimpse at the upcoming Hummer EV’s could-be exterior design through a rendering that integrates the teased front grille into a boxy, bulky, and also high-riding rig.

There are a lot of Hummer H3 styling cues baked into the exterior, including the square-y wheel fenders and the wheel design. The suicide doors are a novelty for the Hummer, though, and as cool as they look, we don’t think the road-going car will have them.

Speaking of wheels, those tires look ready to take on Mars’ surface so they’ll most likely not be an option for the street-legal model. So, tires and doors aside, we wouldn’t mind if the real deal looked like this.

How do you like the speculative rendering?

Tudor’s first encounter with cars took place when he was only a child. Back then, his father brought home a Trabant 601 Kombi and a few years later, a Wartburg 353. At that time, he was too young to know how they worked and way too young to drive them, but he could see one thing – each of them had a different ethos and their own unique personality. As time went on, he started seeing that in other cars as well, and his love for the automobile was born.  Read More
