GMC’s Hummer EV "Crabwalk" Sounds Dumb But Could Be Awesome
The return of the Hummer, even in EV form, has the truck world alight. The hype is real, folks, and the buzz is about to get even louder now that General Motors has unveiled one of the Hummer EV’s most unique features: the crab walk.

The crab walk is one of many new features that’s included in the Hummer EV. All of it is part of GMC’s strategy to reinvent the Hummer’s image from being one of the loudest and thirstiest gas-guzzlers in the land to a muted and electric whizzing truck that’s apparently capable of crab walking its way out of potential hazards.
