Is GM Planning To Develop An Electric Hummer?

gm hummer

Hummer fans, rejoice! It looks like GM is considering reviving the Hummer brand but under different circumstances. A Bloomberg report said that General Motors may be developing an electric version of the Hummer.

The discussions are still in their preliminary states, the report said, but the plan is part of GM’s organization of its range of electric trucks and SUVs. The company is reportedly mulling the idea of using the Hummer brand to compete with the demand for rugged vehicles.

GM is also supposedly looking at competing with Jeep for off-road vehicles with maximum passenger comfort and luxury as their selling point. The report from Bloomberg noted that designers and engineers are already working with Hummer concepts in the hopes of integrating these concepts to GMC-branded products as well.

But is it smart for GM to revive the Hummer only for it to be an electrified version? People love Hummer because it’s big, brawny, muscular, perfect for off-road conditions, and gas is relatively cheap at least for now.

American automaker Rivian has a different opinion, of course, seeing as the Rivian R1S has the same specifications that this rumored electric Hummer is aiming for. Based on Rivian’s investment on the electrified trucks segment, it looks like the hype around the segment is real. Still, an electrified truck worth $70,000 or more? That hasn’t been tested in the market.

Recent reports have indicated that GM is developing a new platform for an electric pickup truck but that does not mean this is anywhere near completion.

The last time we saw a Hummer was in 2010 when GM halted its production after it declared bankruptcy in 2009. Recession and high gas prices drove down Hummer’s sales but GM still has the brand under its portfolio. Wouldn’t it be nice to see an electrified Hummer in this market’s current obsession with SUV and crossovers?

 

Will Hummer Make a Come Back With the 2013 H4 SUV?

What comes to your mind when you hear the word ‘Hummer’? Definitely it will be nothing but a huge and bold SUV that might just run over any other vehicle leaving it a complete piece of trash! Well, you might need to feed some new data into your mind as the brand will now be bringing a new smaller SUV, which looks and performs as brutally as its elder brothers do!

Realizing the fact that the world has started to prefer compact SUVs and crossovers over the larger ones, the company has finally decided to bring in some products which are not as huge as boulders. Yes, we are talking about the beautiful Hummer H4 concept SUV, which is nothing less than an extreme beast!

Hummer has stated that the H4 will be great choice for those who travel a lot off road. What else do the 35 inch diameter wheels yell in your face? Besides the huge wheels, the H4 also comes with an impressive array of equipment which makes it one of the best off road SUVs. It is based on the HX concept that the company unveiled back in 2008. The engine statistics that the SUV features will also make you realize why the vehicle is such a beast. We would also like to mention that the H4 is a two door SUV, and each and every inch of the vehicle shouts manliness like no other vehicle does!

We consider calling the engine that the SUV features under its hood downright insane. What other adjective do you think would fit in best for the 3600cc direct injection V6 engine that comes with the monster? Yes, this engine for a two door SUV! The engine would provide some insane power to the huge wheels. The machine features an all-time four wheel drive system with locking front and rear difference. The 35 inch wheels are also combined with a feature which can reduce vibrations to a great extent. Your ride will hence be smooth at not so smooth terrains as well. Expecting a legendary off road driving experience from this beast is obvious!

We mentioned above that every inch of the SUV stinks of manliness, and we surely mean it! You can tell by a single glance that the H4 is perhaps one of the most robust SUVs that have ever been built. The front grilles as well as the head lamps are ordinarily shaped, but there is just something about the H4 that instantly makes you fall in love with it! The interiors of the 2013 version are also quite elegant and futuristic. With cleaner and spacious interiors and the amazingly comfortable seats, you will feel like you are sitting in some luxurious sedan, just a bit more aggressive!

The SUV is being produced in China, and will be out for sale soon. Hummer has faced a very huge blow to its reputation since the rise of the compact SUVs. We certainly hope that the massive improvements accompanied by the brutality that Hummer was known for will certainly help it rise and shine once again!
