General Motors is bringing back the Hummer as an electric-powered truck. Ahead of its planned debut, here's a full run down of all we know.

This Hummer is a GMC.

General Motors has brought the Hummer name back, but not as a stand-alone brand. This time it's under the GMC umbrella. Electric vehicles are usually pricier than a traditionally powertrained vehicle, so it's logical that the Hummer EV fits better under the GMC brand than the Chevrolet marque.

The GMC Hummer EV is an electric truck and SUV.

You won't catch anyone rolling coal in the Hummer truck anytime soon. It's going to be a full-sized model that runs purely on battery power. Word on the street is that GMC will release the Hummer in truck and SUV form, similar to what Rivian is offering in the R1T and the R1S.

It will have a targa top.

Yes, like a Porsche, but more like a Wrangler. Owners will be able to remove the roof of the models and store them within the vehicle according to reports. See an image of the top here.

The Hummer EV comes with three front windshield wipers.

Yes, three. The reasons for this are unclear at the moment, but the vehicle's reveal will likely yield a clearcut answer.

Indications are that the design is boxy and very Hummer-like.

The modern iterations of GM's trucks are easily the biggest and boxiest to date. This fits easily into the Hummer model and reports indicate that the Hummer EV follows suite and will hold true to many of the design characteristics that Hummer has been known for in the past.

Under the Hummer is EV is GM's third-gen architecture and new battery pack.

In early March, General Motors debuted their new vehicle and battery architecture. We covered it here.

Its range will top what you can get from a Tesla.

There are indications that the GMC Hummer EV will have a 400-mile range. It's likely that GM will sell various grades of the model with different ranges and that the 400-mile model will the the top level offering.

In terms of power, there's a lot to be excited about.

The Hummer EV has more than 1,000 horsepower and a reported 11,500 pound-feet of axle torque. With that output, the truck could conceivably get to 60 mph from a standstill in about 3.0 seconds, similar to what you'll find from a Tesla Model 3.

There may be a rugged off-road version and a top-tier Denali model.

With GMC's intent to push the rugged AT4 grade on its entire lineup, it's conceivable that there would be a Hummer EV AT4 down the road. The same with a Denali model.

General Motors will make the Hummer EV in Detroit.

The company will produce the model at the Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant, alongside the Cruise Origin.

It's going to be a 2022 model year vehicle but you'll probably see it at dealerships in late 2021.

General Motors typically releases vehicles in the late summer to early winter of the year prior to that vehicle's model year. For example, the 2019 Chevrolet Suburban would have come out in late 2018. If the GMC Hummer EV holds true to that platform, it will begin arriving on dealership lots in mid to late 2021.

How much will it cost?

Looking at the playing field, there's a lot of experts out there saying that the price will be about $70,000. That's without any incentives or tax breaks.

The Lamborghini Huracán EVO is the most successful V10-powered Lamborghini ever. Now, the supercar is getting the Ravensburger 3D puzzle treatment. The 3D jigsaw puzzle faithfully replicates the Huracán EVO V10 car in a 1:18 scale.

The puzzle is mounted to a replica chassis. Lamborghini fans will be able to pick out the car's signature Y-style front bumper and Y-shaped embedded in the headlights. It also has the hexagonal details of the traditionally sized Lambo and wears a Arancio Xanto orange paint job. The low-slug profile of the puzzle gives it volume though it measures just 26 cm in length.

The Lordstown Endurance isn’t under production yet, but the company is already receiving orders for the all-electric pickup truck - 40,000 of them. The model is targeted at commercial fleet vehicle buyers like city governments and large corporate entities that require the capability of a full-size truck.

Each pre-order is a non-binding agreement to purchase the truck, the same as the reservations received by Ford for the Mustang Mach-E and Tesla for the Cybertruck. The purchases equal $2 billion in revenue for the company, which is based in Lordstown, Ohio.

Lordstrown has kicked up the cadence of its news releases as the company moves closer to production. In June, the company debuted the truck and announced its $52,000 price point.

July marked the release of the first renderings of the interior of the Endurance and the debut of the first commercial starring the truck. Then, in August, Lordstown announced that they had entered into an agreement with DiamondPeak Holdings to become a publicly traded company.

Lordstown Motors is operating out of the former General Motors Lordstown Assembly site. The new company has its plant next to the battery facility that General Motors is developing to assist with the products coming to market in the future, like the Cadillac Lyriq.
