In the video, GM also reveals how the development of the two vehicles is going, which will be produced in Detroit-Hamtramck.Among the parts shown, we can see the machining of the electric motors, as well as the manufacture of the Ultium battery and modeling of the vehicle's body, which will have very expressive and bulky lines like the old ones.

The front has already been shown and will employ cold vertical chrome with the letters that make up the Hummer's name, as well as full LED headlights and pronounced lower grille.Hood and others will have well-creased creases.

Once the bread and butter in terms of mobility for the rich and famous, the Hummer's fall was as dramatic as its rise and because it was a fuel guzzler, it died a rather painful death. An electric battery transplant, however, may just be what is needed to bring it back to life and GM has been dropping hints about the upcoming vehicle from time to time.
