The GMC Hummer EV comes as not only a fully electric pickup truck but also as a colossal tank-like structure. Its uniqueness also lies in the design, which is far from efficient or aerodynamic, as well as ridiculously expensive

GMC Hummer EV churns out 1,000 hp of peak power and can run up to 482 km range on a single charge. General Motors claims that the electric vehicle can get charged for 160 km with a 12-minute charge via a DC fast charging technology. This mammoth electric pickup truck is capable of sprinting 0-100 kmph in just three seconds.

The report also claims that the US Army has noted that it requires a light to heavy duty battery electric vehicle to support reduced reliance on fossil fuels both in the operational and garrison environments.
