Fans of large American 4x4s will partially appreciate the idea: General Motors is considering the big return of the iconic Hummer. For the project to take the form of a production car, the huge V8 diesel must give way to 100% electric mechanics.
It has been almost 10 years since the Hummer is no longer sold by the General Motors group. The entity nevertheless knows that this backpacker still enjoys a strong image today thanks to his military exploitation. This is why a return in the form of an electric equivalent is possible according to the communicants of the American giant.
The news came during a group conference concerning the modular system of the large electric pickup truck intended to compete with the upcoming Ford F-150. General Motors president Mark Reuss admitted to our Bloomberg colleagues that the technical configuration of his platform does not prohibit the idea of an electric Hummer before adding that: “nothing is sure but General Motors is thinking about all”.
The platform for the large pick-up will be able to accommodate two electric motors. The model will target the Ford F-150 but also the Rivian R1T and the future dump vehicle of the Californian manufacturer Tesla. Other revelations will be made by 2020.
