Hummer may soon return from the dead – with electric shock.
Reuters announced on Friday that General Motors will begin manufacturing a range of high-end electric pickup trucks and SUVs in 2021, which may include restarting the Hummer brand according to sources familiar with the plans.
The trucks will be built at the Detroit-Hamtrammck plant, which was "unallocated" prior to the start of ongoing contract negotiations with United Car Companies, Reuters said.
GM postponed the Hummer brand in 2010 during its bankruptcy recovery.
In June, General Motors President Mark Reus said "I love Hummer" and that the electric truck market was "massive".  "There may be places we go first that are not only heavy trucks, but more off-road style and ability," he says at the time. – HOW IS IT WORKING
General Motors has only publicly confirmed that it will introduce an electric pickup on an unspecified date.
According to Reuters sources, the plan is to begin large-scale pickup production in 2021, followed by a high-performance model in 2022 and an SUV in 2023.
No final decision has been taken on the use of the Hummer name, but some of the vehicles will be sold under the GMC and Cadillac brands.
Further details are likely to be found in finalizing the agreement.
