General Motors has revealed new details on its upcoming electric models, including interesting information on two trucks.
The automaker’s latest sustainability report includes a page dedicated to the deployment of new battery-powered vehicles which will start next year.
Following the pickup version of the GMC Hummer EV that was unveiled in a 2020 Super Bowl ad featuring LeBron James, GMC will present an SUV version of the full-size truck with off-road capability. The platform on which the two will be built will be available with a three-engine configuration that delivers 1,000 hp and the ability to accelerate to 60 mph in three seconds.
With the Hummers, Chevrolet will get an electric pickup Silverado 1500 which does not yet have a name, but will be offered with a battery large enough to provide 400 miles of autonomy.
GM has confirmed that the Hummer pickup will be in showrooms by the end of 2021, but has not announced dates for the SUV or the Chevy truck. Assuming the Chevy arrives in 2022 or later, it could face competition from an electric Ford F-150 that is in the works, as well as from the Cybertruck Tesla, which the company says will be offered in a model with more than 500 miles of autonomy.

In addition to trucks, report confirms that Chevy is getting compact, mid-size electric utility vehicles, while Buick is configured for a function-oriented SUV and also a more elegant CUV, which may or may not be sold in the United States .
Cadillac seems to be the lion’s share destination for GM’s battery-powered output, with the future Lyriq two-row mid-size SUV, a three-row mid-size SUV, a compact entry-level SUV, an Escalade-style SUV full size and the flagship Celestiq sedan. The Celestiq will be built by hand at a rate of just 1.2 cars per day and would cost more than $ 200,000.
