GMC presented the SUV version of the GMC Hummer EV this past weekend as part of the March Madness festivities in the U.S. This is of course the second volley in General Motors’s offensive to resuscitate the Hummer name as an all-electric, all-performance nameplate under the GMC banner, after the Hummer EV pickup.
The SUV is thus built on the same platform as the truck variant, and will offer much the same type of equipment and features. Among those is the much-talked about Crab Walk capability, which allows drivers to move the vehicle diagonally to fit the rather massive vehicle into tight parking spots for instance.
The Hummer EV SUV gets GM’s Ultium battery, no surprise there; it will deliver up to 482 of range, according to GMC.
Buyers will choose from one of three configurations for the model, with either one, two or three electric motors. Total output can reach up to 830 hp and – get ready for it – 11,500 lb-ft of torque. With that, this all-electric beast can storm from a stop to 60 mph (or 97 km/h) in as little as 3.5 seconds.
