General Motors race to take on Tesla intensified this week when Gm dropped a few more teasers about the new fully Electric Hummer series. The full reveal doesn't come until May 20th,  but GM's "EV Day" info dump released a few more bread crumbs for humvee fans on Wednesday. 

First, we now know that GM will release both truck and SUV versions of the Hummer EV. Both Hummer models will feature removable Targa tops. Plus its got 3 windshield wipers similar to the Toyota Fj series. The Hummer Ev's have an estimated 400-mile range and will utilize GM's 3rd-generation EV architecture and the new Ultima large-pouch cell batteries that were developed alongside LG Chem.

The big question on everyone's mind, what is it going to look like?

Apparently the "look" of the Hummer EV is very reminiscent of the H2 and H3 of the early aughts, which is to say that they're very boxy and utilitarian-looking.

 

The new design of the Hummer EV 2020 is based on Hummer designs from the early 2000s like this 2004 Hummer H3

 

The humvee reached iconic status years ago and is now one of the most recognizable vehicles on the planet. Even so, it's a little surprising GM would rebrand a vehicle once known for its gas-guzzling compacity as fully electric. Its a bold move.

"Our electric trucks will change what people thought they knew about EVs – and everything they know about Hummers." GM states on its website " The GMC HUMMER EV is our first entry, but it won’t be alone for long. We will offer not just one pickup, but multiple models with multiple variants, for multiple customers - a vehicle and package for everyone."

Now for the long wait till May...
