GMC doesn’t make much of an effort to keep the new Hummer out of the curious eyes of journalists and car watchers. We have seen various all-electric test prototypes on public roads, and our colleagues from Inside electric vehicles even had the chance to spy on an example close to production around Detroit. Today, we can finally take a look at what appears to be the final production version of the Electric Hummer thanks to a new spy video.
Released by the TFL Now team on Youtube, the 10 minute video shows us at least four GMC Hummers and one of the vehicles appears to be driven by the chief engineer of the project. Before the convoy there is a camera car and that could mean that the automaker is filming some kind of promotional video for the electric truck. There is also a Hummer prototype with missing parts and various exterior components.
If you take a closer look at the first car in the video, you can see what the final production design of the front end is likely to be. This includes the headlights, side mirrors and the front bumper, while the unfinished example behind is fitted with roof accessories like an additional light bar and roof racks. It also has a black charging bedspread.
When you look at it from the back, some prototypes carry what appear to be production taillights and others have provisional units. We can also take a look at the design of the tailgate with a large Hummer lettering, as well as the recovery hooks and the winch. According to the hosts, the prototypes are expected to run on 35-inch Goodyear tires, which are said to be standard tires for the model. When it goes on sale, the optionally available model is expected to be 37 inches.
One of the test cars even shows its interior for a brief moment with a large infotainment screen towering over the dashboard. It’s too hard to tell from this distant view, but it looks like the cabin is almost production ready as well.
The GMC Hummer EV is expected to go on sale before the end of the year and this new video could be an indication that the automaker is moving ahead as planned with development and testing of the truck.
